BMW M4 runs soft which allows for very little noise. Weight to power ratio is well balanced thus causing this car to be a real track competitor. The magnet position allows this car to be very smooth as it cruises around the track.
Red, white, black and blue are the primary colors for the BMW M4. The logos are great looking replicas to the real thing in addition number positioning on the window.
McLaren Honda F1 on a small scale means a very quick and responsive slot car. Like all F1 cars their lowness to the ground allows them to conquer any track. They tend to show their true advantage on tracks with many curves.
The styling of this car is a little boxy and nothing fancy like the Red Bull F1. There are a few advertisements listed on the car such as Mobile 1, Honda, Hilton, CNN, SAP, Pirelli, and Segafredo.
These little Carreras have a little bit of a rough ride. Sounds like a train on tracks instead of a slot car. The sound is probably from the strength of the magnet keeping it on the track.
Ford Mustang 67 with red racing strips and a mean stance. A beautiful car that feels a little bulky when it’s unpackaged but once this beast touches the track everything changes. Handling is very smooth on straight aways however backend movement can be a little of an issue but for the most part magnet position is good.
Graphic details on this American Muscle car are fairly nice. Two white racing stripes with black outlines make this Ford Mustang 67 car desirable. The stripes go from the front hood all the way to the trunk lid like the real thing. Mustang is listed on both sides underneath the doors which give a classic feel. Custom license plate “PONYYYY” is displayed on the back between the dual exhaust pipes.
Mustang emblems are shown in their correct positions. The grill, side panels, and trunk lid house them. Hood and back fender display ventilation openings which give the feel of the car being cooled.
Formula 1/43 slot cars handle very strong. Car speed is pretty fast especially on big tracks. Running the car on a 1/32 size track allows for full speeds. Arrow dynamics keep the car glued to the track without issues. Zipping by so fast the car can hardly be seen.
This type of car can be found for about $15, which is a good entry level car. There’s little maintenance and is very resistant. This car is good for kids but is just as fun for adults.
Small Carrera cars are a good way to get into the hobby. The first track I started with was a track from Hobby Lobby that I used the 40% coupon on. If you aren’t familiar with the Hobby Lobby coupons download the app for the store on your smart phone. Once you have the app look for the coupons section. You can only use the coupon on one item.
This Mercedes I got on EBay brand new for around $15. The Hobby Lobby stores in my area don’t carry these cars individually anymore. It was a brand new car sold by user power_hobby.
I run these 1/43 cars on my Scalextric 1/32 track. Due to their small size I can get these cars up to full speed on the straights. To get them to work I had to shave the both sides of the guide so it would fit in the slot.
