Chase Cars Direct.
"I love slot cars and have done since I was a kid. While going faster is a noble aim, a fast car isn’t always the most fun, or necessarily your favourite car. To make my fun car, I wanted it to be like car chases were on TV when I was a kid – with a good sized American car, lots of lurid tail slides, probably doing less than 50mph but looking fast and almost out of control. So for my chase I made suspension to make the car lean through the corners and steering to make power slides more realistic."
