Fly 908 pricing has risen since the end of 2018. These cars were moderately priced but now are starting to approach the higher end. It’s difficult to tell what has caused the spike in pricing.
Two years ago these cars could be found for as little as $20. It appears to be as of today the starting range is around $50. If the pricing holds, it could be a good time to sale these cars.

Fly Porsche have dramatically went up in price since I last was on ebay. Taking a two month break and something caused a spike which has lead to a significant price increase. Whether people are actually purchasing this type of car at these prices is a different story.
How does a car double in price in such a short amount of time? I’ll be keeping an eye on these auctions to see if purchases are being made. I have a feeling this is truly just aggressive sellers trying to inflate prices.
Fly Porsche is a good car for any slot car enthusiast. Very easy to work on in addition they have what I like to call a two piece body. The motor sits in a back section of the car that is easily removable and can be replaced quickly.
After doing some looking I found one ebay Fly Porsche Auction at a decent price. It will be interesting to see how this one ends.
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.
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.
