Coming from Ostorero
Ostorero has announced this new project, a generic F1 car that comes only in plain white but with decal sheets for all the F1 liveries available separately so you can create your own Grand Prix field with all the various teams represented. This is an idea somebody should have run with a long time ago. F1 cars all look so much alike that if you took one of each, painted them solid white, and parked them side-by-side only a small percentage of F1 fans would be able to tell them apart. By producing only a single generic car Ostorero keeps tooling costs low. This should mean a low unit price for the cars while allowing them to be equipped with high-end wheels, gears, and other components, as well as built-in competitive parity. Those who want to go the extra mile and modify the generic body to more closely resemble specific F1 cars should find the car an excellent starting point for their efforts. There is no word yet on pricing and other details but the cars are said to be scheduled for production in 2 to 3 months. We will publish more information as it becomes available.

Autoart drive shaft assemblies
We get requests from customers for drive shaft assemblies of various lengths for front-motor and 4 wheel-drive cars, either as replacement parts or to complete a front-motor scratchbuild project. We have now received all the drive shaft assemblies made by Autoart for their various cars, which gives us a selection of 2mm shaft assemblies with shaft lengths from 19mm to 56mm. Each assembly includes the shaft, shaft bushing, pinion gear, and coupling spring. These drive shafts can be used with all the motors we sell except the FF configuration, which has a 1.5mm shaft, and you could even use them with an FF if you sleeve the motor shaft up to 2mm. You can find them on our web site under Autoart Parts.
