New Slot Cars This Week

Lots of new slot cars and kits this week

With all our new arrivals, it almost feels like we have been stockpiling slot cars and accessories all through this long and cold winter. We have so much to tell you…

Cartrix 0970 Dan Gurney #30 Porsche 804, 1962 France GP

Porsche’s brief time as a factory entrant in F1 culminated in its only race-winning car: the 1962 Porsche 804.

At the 1962 French Grand Prix Dan Gurney qualified sixth and inherited the lead after Graham Hill and Jim Clark suffered technical problems. He finished a full lap ahead of Tony Maggs’ Cooper for his first Grand Prix triumph and Porsche’s only world championship win.

Yet shortly after Dan Gurney’s triumph in the 1962 French Grand Prix, the team cancelled its F1 programme, and has never returned to the sport as a full constructor.

Cartrix 0915 Louis Rosier #15 Talbot Lago, 1950 British GP

What Fun We Had!

Greystone Concourse d’Elegance 2014

The 2014 Greystone Concours d’Elegance took place at the historic Greystone  Mansion in Beverly Hills on Sunday, May 4. This year celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Porsche Speedster and well as the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang.

The car show included  an awards ceremony and a fashion show. Food, drinks, and various auto  exhibits were present throughout the mansion grounds. The Greystone Mansion was also open for people to see its many rooms and history of the Doheny family who once lived there.

We had a great time introducing slot cars and slot car racing to some and rekindling the love affair for others. We had 100′s of cars on display and a great track set up for racers of all ages.

It was a great day all around!

Cartrix 0970 Dan Gurney #30 Porsche 804, 1962 France GP

Porsche’s brief time as a factory entrant in F1 culminated in its only race-winning car: the 1962 Porsche 804.

At the 1962 French Grand Prix Dan Gurney qualified sixth and inherited the lead after Graham Hill and Jim Clark suffered technical problems. He finished a full lap ahead of Tony Maggs’ Cooper for his first Grand Prix triumph and Porsche’s only world championship win.

Yet shortly after Dan Gurney’s triumph in the 1962 French Grand Prix, the team cancelled its F1 programme, and has never returned to the sport as a full constructor.

Scalextric C3424 1969 Mustang, Paul Pettey

SPECIAL!  In the 1970s, Paul Pettey and Richard Reventlow took six months to turn a showroom Mustang into a full‐fledged Trans Am racer.  Not being experts, however, the first tech inspection at the track was a disaster, and the car was not allowed to race.

A few months later, however, they were ready to go. The car ended up racing in seven Trans Am Series races in the Midwest and on the East Coast.

Project in progress

McLaren M12

We’re almost there with our McLaren M12.  Just a few details left to add, including mirrors and exhausts, and some detail painting, mostly on the driver.

This, you may recall, is what we started with – a vintage Aurora body made around 1970.

And this is the chassis we’ve made for it, a modified Fly Joest-Porsche chassis with a magnet upgrade and Monogram Greenwood corvette wheels and tires.

Look for a complete project recap and wrapup, coming soon in Electric Dreams News.  Yes, we know we need to fix the Coca Cola decal on the right side.

New project in progress

This is going to be a 2011 Camaro TransAm car made from a Carrera Camaro concept car body shortened to fit a Scalextric Jaguar TransAm chassis and interior.  More on this project in coming issues of the newsletter.

McLaren CanAm kitbash update:

Last week, you’ll recall, we had all the body modifications done and the body in primer.  Now, we have the basic  body color on the car.  We used Testor Boyd Red enamel.  The black strip at the top of the spoiler was painted black and masked off before we sprayed the red on.  You can see several small pieces of masking tape still on the body.  These are covering up small areas of flat black that won’t be uncovered until all the painting, decaling, and clear coating is done.

And here’s the finished running chassis, painted black and clear coated to cover all the white styrene used in modifying the chassis and give it an appearance closer to that of a factory-stock chassis.
