Scalextric AMG Mercedes

Scalextric AMG is built on a platform that allows for high performance. Sitting low to the ground is an advantage for this car. In true Scalextric fashion the ride is absolutely smooth.

The working front and rear lights add to the realism. A new car would include a wing, thus helping with the down force. This was a used buy that I found on ebay that the wing had broken off. Without the wing this car likes to break the backend loose on turns.

DPR capability is standard option with this car. You can purchase the DPR chip on Scalextric.com or on Amazon.

Solarbeam Mercedes AMG

Solarbeam is one of my favorite little cars to play with. This little car is zippy, and gets to speed pretty quick. In addition this little car can be hard to handle on corners. That’s truly one of things that makes this car fun. It will test your driving abilities to see if you have enough skill to push the boundaries.

The back end of the Solarbeam likes to come off the track. I don’t know if that’s due to magnet position or this little car is just too fast.

I call this car zippy because when you give it power it makes a zip noise.

Haribo AMG GT3

Haribo Mercedes-AMG GT3

Haribo Mercedes seems to be a little wider in the front compared to other 1/43 Carrera cars. This is one of the features of it being based off the AMG.

I have one other 1/43 AMG Mercedes and what they have in common is the suction they maintain around the track. While they won’t fly off the track the suction kind of slows them down. I don’t know if it’s the magnet or the wing that creates the suction.

Haribo Mercedes has a little more detail than most of these small cars. The quality seems to be just a smidge better. It could be since the car is black it appears to be more detailed.

Enzo Ferrari Slot Car Wanted

Enzo Ferrari cars are holding pretty strong in value. I’ve been watching them for the last two months. They are sitting between $50 and $60. There must be some demand from buyers which are causing the prices to inflate.

If you have one of these for sale put your Ebay link or user name in the comments below.

Audi RS 5 DTM Carrera Slot Car

Audi RS is one sweet racing car with bright yellow and green color. The complete car is covered in a cool green graphic and fades in yellow. Shaeffler is on the hood, doors and roof which tells who the advertisement represents.

DTM designed slot cars run very well due to their weight coupled with the magnet positioning. Depending upon track size there’s a good chance you’ll be able to get this car up to top speed.

Ruggedness of the Audi RS 5 is perfect for kids in addition to adults. The only small parts are the mirrors but they are connected pretty strong. The rear spoiler seems to be attached in a manner that it would take a really hard crash for it to come off.

BMW M4 DTM Review

BMW M4 DTM Carrera Slot Car

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 MP4 30 F1 Slot Car

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 Carrera Racing Red

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.
