A More Perfect McLaren

March 25, 2013
by  

Upgrading the Carrera McLaren M20 We really like the Carrera 1/32 scale CanAm cars, especially the McLaren M20  There is something about the M20 that seems to make it the very picture of what a CanAm car should be.  Carrera’s M20 model, along with other recent Carrera cars, incorporates features that make it a big improvement over the company’s... [Read more ⇒]

Fixing some of the same mistakes on Monogram’s McLaren M6 that we fixed on their Lola T70 Where have we seen a photo like this before? Oh, I remember… It was this one, in our article about fixing the designers’ mistakes on the Monogram Lola T70.

We like the looks of the Carrera 27134 Mustang, but it could use some help in the handling department.  Well, as it happens, we had a set of wheels and tires from a Scalextric Ferrari F430 lying around and noticed that the Mustang’s body and chassis left room for wheels and tires a lot wider than the skinny ones it comes with.  Would the Scalextric... [Read more ⇒]
