Camel 908 Porsche is a slot car for adults. While it drives very well its body is fragile. It has one mirror that can easily fall off. If the car is dropped the body will crack.
Analog is the default setting for the slot car. To make this car digital it will need to have an aftermarket chip such as Scalextric c7005. A hole must be drilled into the bottom of the car. Once the hole is drilled the bulb will fit directly through it.
The body of this car is two pieces. The rear wheels are contained in one section, thus once unscrewed it will completely dislodge itself. The body setup makes it a little difficult to work on.
A very strong magnet keeps the Camel glued to its track. There are no special features to this car such as rear or front lights.
F1 racing slot cars are low to the track which makes for fun and fast racing. Speed is not only useful on straights but turns are no problem. The handling on this car is exceptional which makes it easy to drive for all skill levels.
Very smooth movements make this car a contender to any slot car. Feel confident taking this car to any open event racing. If not coming in first with this car it will be a close second.
This Fly Porsche is one of the first cars I received in a “lot” purchase. Five other cars were included for $100. After receiving the car I inserted digital chip Scalextric c7005. This allows the car to run in both analog and digital modes.
Adding digital capabilities required me to modify the car, thus effecting value. Modified by drilling a hole in the bottom of the car making room for the lane change bulb.
Running in analog mode the car is very fast; which it occasionally wants to fly off the track. When switched to digital a little bit of the power seems to be taken away. It’s still faster than most cars though. The ride is a little rough but that’s due to this being an older car with magnet placement.
Fly Dodge Viper slot cars are in demand on eBay. This car was a great find at $15.00. It was one of the first cars that I purchased in 2018. It’s missing the rear wing but the rest of the car is superb.
It’s one fun car, but has a tendency for the rear to slide around. It has no lights but it runs very well.
This Lamborghini is a good find on Ebay. It took some patience because the auction was six days. I passed on a couple of auctions before on this same type of car. Patience is the key to truly finding the best deals. The auction end price for this car was $13.49 plus $4.70 for shipping.
During shipping the left mirror was disconnected. I was able to attach it back by pressing it in. Besides that, there is nothing wrong with this car.
This 488 Ferrari was won on Ebay for $25; I love when I find good deals. The Ferrari had a broken wing and missing both mirrors. The auctions like this one are where you’ll find really good cars
The first thing I did after receiving the 488 Ferrari was put the wing back on. I used Super Gel Gorilla glue, it dries strong and is clear. I let it dry for about 2 hours before playing with the car. You’ll see from the pictures you can’t tell where it was glued on.
The car drives like a brand new car, I’m assuming the first owner rarely played with the car. The stickers show no wear and the paint is very good. There were no modifications done to the car at all.
LaFerrari is one slot car that I’ve waited for quite sometime to get. These cars tend to go for around $50, but I was able to get one for $25. Carrera did a really good job on these cars. The detail with the mirrors and vents is amazing.
The size of the car is 1/32 but it feels a little bigger. It seems like it’s a little heavier than a Scalextric car. This is truly the first new Carrera 1/32 car I’ve purchased and I’m very proud of it.
The smoothness of this car is amazing as it goes around the track. I’m assuming this has a lot to do with the placement of the magnet in the chassis. It seems to stick to the track very well even as the car gets up to top speed.
It’s a quiet car, unlike the rough sound from older slot cars. The engine sound is kind of a unique winding noise that matches the cool look of the car. There’s no lights on either the front or the back but there is a driver.
