We’ve reduced prices by 20% on many of our LeMans Miniatures assembled cars and kits.  LMM assembled cars feature resin-cast bodies and are hand-built by skilled modelers.  LMM kits are an exceptional value because each one includes all the parts necessary to build up into a complete running car for about the same price as many other boutique kits that include only the body.  Now is the time to complete your collection of LeMans winners and contenders while supplies last at these low prices.  You can see the entire range of sale-priced LMM cars in our Sale Items category beginning at   http://www.electricdreams.com/Shop/sale-items-great-values-c-335.html?page=12&sort=20a.

The Electric Dreams Top 40

Part 4 – The Top Ten!

Scalextric C2711 Jaguar XKR TransAm, Paul Gentilozzi

No. 10.  Scalextric C2711 Jaguar XKR TransAm, Paul Gentilozzi.  The first of the Scalextric TA Jaguars and arguably the best looking of the lot.  The chassis also makes a great kitbashing platform.

Scalextric C2605

No. 9. Scalextric C2605 NASCAR Chevy Monte Carlo, all white.  All-white cars are perennial good sellers because of the ease with which custom-painters can use them in creating their own masterpieces.

Scalextric C2896 1970 Camaro TransAm car, Jim Hall / Vic Elford

No. 8. Scalextric C2896 1970 Camaro TransAm car, Jim Hall / Vic Elford.  The classic TransAm series and the Chaparral legend combine to create an irresistible American racing icon.   The graphics on this car epitomize the liveries of the era.

Autoart 13571 Jaguar C-Type, 1953 LeMans winner

No. 7.  Autoart 13571 Jaguar C-Type, 1953 LeMans winner.  There is nothing like a 50s sports car for sheer grace of form.  Back then body design was as much an art as a science, if not more so.  Race cars have been getting progressively uglier ever since race car constructors discovered wind tunnels.

Carrera 20206 Ferrari 330P4, 2nd place LeMans 1967

No. 6.  Carrera 20206 Ferrari 330P4, 2nd place LeMans 1967.  If this car doesn’t have the most sensuous body shape ever put on a race car it must surely be on a very short list of candidates.  And as a protagonist in the epic Ford-Ferrari battles at LeMans in 1966-67 it is the essence of motor sports history.

Scalextric C2451 1969 Camaro TransAm car, white

No. 5.  Scalextric C2451 1969 Camaro TransAm car, white.  The first and still the only pre-1970 Camaro TA car.  In all its many liveries, including plain white, this car has to be a candidate for the best-selling car of the modern era despite the shortcomings of its body shape.  The all-white one has been the best selling version, not surprising given the popularity of custom painting.

Scalextric C2595 Ford Taurus #97 Sharpie

No. 4.  Scalextric C2595 Ford Taurus #97 Sharpie.  We had the foresight to pick up a zillion of these when they were in production and we have been selling them ever since.  The pre-COT NASCARs are getting harder to come by, but we still have them and they are still very popular with all the hobbyists who never liked the COT in all its permutations.

Scalextric C2650 Dallara IRL Dan Wheldon 2005 Indy 500 winner

No. 3.  Scalextric C2650 Dallara IRL Dan Wheldon 2005 Indy 500 winner.  We bought lots of these, too, just because it was an Indy 500 winner and we guessed it would be hard to go wrong with it.  Since Dan Wheldon’s unfortunate passing it has become even more in demand – certainly not a circumstance we would have wished for but still a prime example of how events can affect the market for slot cars.

Monogram 85-4855 Greenwood Corvette

No. 2.  Monogram 85-4855 Greenwood Corvette.  The Monogram Greenwood Corvettes are a curious phenomenon.  The Greenwood “Batmobile” is a car you would shoot an on-track video of and then put it on You Tube with a Two Steps From Hell track playing in the background.   It’s the all-time king of Corvettes, and Monogram’s models of it are gorgeously executed.  Not only that, but with a couple of simple tuning tweaks they are rocket fast on any kind of plastic track.  So, it always mystified us why we have been able to buy boatloads of them at bargain prices and pass the savings on to our customers.  We can’t believe they just didn’t sell to begin with.  We never had a problem moving them.  So, we can only guess that either Revellogram grossly overestimated the market or some employee accidentally typed an extra zero into the quantity box on the order to the factory in China.

And finally…

Monogram 85-4857 Greenwood Corvette

No.1Monogram 85-4857 Greenwood Corvette.  Yup, another Monogram Greenwood.  Aside from its looks and legendary history, what makes this slot car cool is that it really is easy to make into a great performer.  The key is those ginormously wide rear tires.  You just true them up, remove the stock magnet, and glue an aftermarket bar magnet to the bottom of the chassis just forward of the rear axle, and the car corners like a banshee without being so stuck down you don’t have to drive it.  You don’t even need aftermarket tires.  It’s a blast to drive on our Scalextric Sport track.  If you don’t have one of these cars — or two or three or six — you owe it to yourself.  And you can’t beat the price.

And a bonus– the Number One seller of all the products on our web site:

Scalextric C8205 - Standard Straight 350mm, pk. of 2

Scalextric C8205 – Standard Straight 350mm, pk. of 2.   The basic building block of countless racing layouts.

Electric Dreams News April 2nd, 2010

New Items In Stock:

Autoart 13201 Koenigsegg CCX, orange

Autoart 13201 Koenigsegg CCX, orange – $44.99

Slot Classic CJ33 Hispano Suiza Type 68, 1934

Slot Classic CJ33 Hispano Suiza Type 68, 1934 – $499.99

These two models together provide an illustration of how cars have changed over the decades. The Koenigsegg CCX is considered one of the most exotic cars on the road today, a no-expense-spared example of the cutting edge of road car technology. The Hispano-Suiza was the Koenigsegg of its day, the ultimate high-performance driving machine of the 1930s. Both cars were made in very small numbers for a very wealthy and exclusive clientèle and feature the most advanced materials and technology of their respective eras. The models also represent the tremendous variety of products available in today’s world of model car racing. One is a mass-produced model selling for a very moderate price while the other is a hand-crafted masterpiece with a premium (to say the least) price tag, but both are part of vast array of choices available to slot car hobbyists. If ever there was a golden era of slot car racing we are living in it right now.

Slot Car Challenge 3

Some of our customers and friends have been asking when our next Slot Car Challenge will get under way. We are sorry to tell you all that the Challenges have been put on hold indefinitely. The reason is that our business is growing so rapidly we have all we can do just to keep up with it and the Electric Dream Team simply doesn’t have the time to run a competition right now and for a while to come. However, we have not abandoned the project and we will be reevaluating our situation periodically to see when we might be able to do another one. We will let everybody know when the time comes.

Just for fun:

Javelin Kitbash Completed!

It’s finished! A week or so late but it’s done.

The car is now finished, assembled, and ready to race. We completed the decals using more sponsor logos plus the SCCA wheel and TransAm series decals from the Pioneer decal sheet to be included with the soon-to-be-released Mustang kits. The exception was the Budweiser decals on the rear fenders, which came from an old decal sheet we had lying around. This car could easily be a model of a 1970s SCCA club racing car and occasional TransAm entry sponsored by a beer distributor with some help from a local AMC dealer. Note that we painted a sunshade onto the top of the windshield and simplified the front air dam slightly.

The project has turned out to be every bit as easy as we thought it would be. It required no modification to the chassis of any kind. The only modification to the running gear was to fit a pair of Pioneer TransAm car front wheels and tires, a bit narrower than the TA rears, to fit inside the Javelin rear fenders. A little minor fender flaring would have enabled us to use the complete running chassis from either a notchback or fastback Mustang race car, including the wider rears, but we wanted to keep this project as simple as possible so we avoided bodywork this time around. The Mustang interior fits the Javelin body with only very minor trimming, as described before. This is a project that even a first-time kitbasher can tackle with confidence.

We have it on good authority that Pioneer is working on making a complete TA Mustang running chassis, without body, available for hobbyists who want to do projects like this at the lowest possible cost. We also have been told that a complete selection of spare parts, including wheels, tires, gears, motors, and detail parts, is in the pipeline and should appear soon. Pioneer is aware of the potential uses of its spare parts that go well beyond just repairing the cars it makes and will be planning its spare parts offering with them in mind.

And just to give you a couple more ideas…

How about a late-70s Camaro? (A version of this kit is currently available from Revell-Monogram for just a few bucks.)

Or a Chevy Nova? (You can find these fairly often on eBay)

If you have any questions about this project we invite you to send them to support@electricdreams.com and our tech department will be glad to answer them.
