Pioneer Models update

We’ve all been waiting for hard news about the future plans of Pioneer Models, which has been going through a long, difficult process of establishing its own factory after having too many bad experiences with contractor factories in China.   We have it on good authority from Pioneer USA that the first shipments of cars from the new factory are expected to arrive on these shores sometime in October..  These should be the first of the new and much anticipated Camaro models.  Pioneer says that with the entire manufacturing process under its own control, from initial research to final distribution it will be able to bring out new models much more quickly.  The Legends cars and the 1971 Javelin are expected to follow the Camaro in rapid succession.  Meanwhile, Pioneer is now showing on its web site the first official drawing of the Chevy Legends car.

We will pass on to you any additional information as we receive it.  For now, however, the end of the long drought of Pioneer cars is in sight, for which we can all rejoice.  Electric Dreams wishes Julian Birley and all the gang at Pioneer all success and we congratulate them upon the imminent completion of their new factory.

 

New NSR 2mm axles, bushings, and gears. 

NSR has released and we have received 2mm diameter axles along with bushings and spacers to fit them.  Apparently, the level of competition in European racing has reached the point where reducing the axle diameter by .4mm or so is worth the effort for even the tiny incremental weight reduction this allows.  NSR has also released a line of very lightweight plastic spur gears with metal hubs for both 2mm and 3/32″ axles, but there have been immediate reports of these gears failing due to improper design.  We received a shipment of these gears but we will not be putting them on line for sale until we are certain the problem is resolved.  We may end up returning all of them for replacement with improved gears.

The cars of Virtuoso Performance

As we mentioned in our August 4 newsletter a member of the Electric Dream Team recently had the fun job of visiting the Virtuoso Performance race shop in Hayward, California to assemble a slot car track that the VP staff was going to take to Laguna Seca and other vintage racing events as entertainment for their guests.  While at the shop our ED team member had the opportunity to photograph the many interesting historic cars VP maintains for its customers.  Here is a selection of the photos he took.

This is what you see when you enter the front door.  this is the “showroom” with the offices to the right. The walls are covered with posters and photos and the cars and engines on display are just a hint of what lies beyond.

This chair is one of the artifacts on display in the showroom.  The autographs include George Follmer, Tom Pryce, J.P. Jarier, and Jackie Oliver, all Shadow drivers, plus many others.  See if you can make out all the famous signatures.

For all you Porschephiles and Gulfophiles, how about this?  A Porsche 911 GT3 in Gulf Porsche colors for a really nice retro touch.

And sitting right next to the Porsche is an Aston Martin DBR2 replica in a beautiful metallic green as on the original Aston Martin works race cars.

And speaking of Aston Martins, here’s one to die for…

Or how about a Ferrari 288 GTO?

The Len Terry-designed Shelby King Cobra was never much of a performer, but you have to love the shape of it.

This is either the latest Batmobile or a little-known Shadow CanAm design.  The bazooka-like thing above the cockpit is either an air intake or a forward-firing weapon, located right next to the driver’s head.

And while we’re on CanAm cars, sitting in a corner was the one and only Sting GR-1, built and driven by CanAm independent Gary Wilson.

Here’s an Osella-BMW fresh from restoration.  note the Yardley BRM and the Chevron in the background.  VP does everything from complete restorations to routine maintenance to trackside support for its customers and their cars.

Here’s another Osella.  Both of them are powered by 2-liter engines.

This AC Aceca coupe (an AC Ace with a top) is one of the Cobra’s ancestors. The shade of red in which it’s painted is gorgeous. VP has its own paint booth and master painter.

A shot of some of the many customer cars stored at VP, with a very nice Elva Courier in the foreground.

Body panels and wing for a Lola T163.

These are either truly elegant flower pots for the office and showroom or vintage CanAm car or F-1 wheels.

This is the shop’s “winter project”.  When finished it will be powered by a 500 cubic inch Chevy and feature all carbon-fiber ground effects bodywork…well, maybe not.  But it ought to be great fuel-efficient transportation for two people who like to be close to each other.

Our thanks to Virtuoso Performance not only for their business but also for giving us the chance to see and photograph a great shop full of fine race cars.  If any of our readers are into 1:1 scale vintage racing and looking for a prep shop in the San Francisco Bay area, check out VP at www.vprace.com.
