First of all, a very merry Christmas from the Electric Dream Team to all our friends and subscribers! 

May the day fill you with joy as you celebrate.  And perhaps you might like to take time to remember the reason for the season and reflect on the significance of that first Christmas 2000-plus years ago.

Coming from Racer in 2013

Sideways Schnitzer BMW Gp5

Sideways Porsche 935 Moby Dick

We can’t quite figure out the appeal of these cars, two of the most ungainly race cars ever constructed, but Carrera’s models of them have been reasonably successful and Racer’s probably will be, too.  Both appeared in prototype form at the Slotlandia show.

Ferrari 250GT “Breadvan”, most likely on the Racer 250GTO chassis.

More info on these cars as it becomes available.

What took Slot It so long?

 McLaren M8D.  Let’s hope this is just the first in a series that will include all the major CanAm cars.

Just announced by Flyslot

Flyslot 053302 Ferrari 250LM, plain red.  We don’t have this up for preorder yet but we will shortly.  You will be able to model any of the red 250LMs at relatively low cost just by using Racer decals on these Flyslot cars.

Coming in 2013 from Flyslot

Ferrari 512BB-LM.  We have no information on this car beyond these CAD images, but if the quality control is good it should be a success.

Grassroots road racing

Here are some shots of cars seen at a recent International Conference of Sports Car Clubs (ICSCC) race at Pacific Raceways.  The ICSCC is made up of a group of local clubs in the Pacific Northwest.  It attracts the more low-budget racers (although low-budget is a highly relative term) who have been priced out of SCCA racing as well as some SCCA drivers looking for more races to run and vintage racers wanting more track time.  Some of the cars look a bit long in the tooth and frayed around the edges, but the racing is fun for drivers and spectators alike.  And speaking of spectators… admission was free.  For an afternoon of watching road racing in  the sunshine you can’t beat the price.

This is a tube-frame Nissan 240SX that runs both ICSCC and SCCA.

This Mazda RX3 must be 40 years old but it still gets with the program.  It embarrassed several GT1 cars and Porsches.  Check out the muffler.  That’s what it takes to keep all those rotary decibels within today’s noise limits.

If this MGB doesn’t shout “American production sports car racing!” we don’t know what does.  This one was actually taken at an SCCA race at the same track, but it epitomizes grassroots racing to the core.

The Miustang FR500C “Boy Racer” has penetrated to all levels of American road racing.  This actually is an SCCA car that went to the 2012 Runoffs.  You can see from the 3 different class designators that it runs in different classes and racing organizations.  Many cars run two classes in one weekend just by adding or subtracting ballast.

Some people’s grass roots run deeper and greener than others.  This BMW M3 is not a low-dollar car but for those who can afford one like this it delivers a lot of bang for the buck.

And now for something completely different… As nearly as we can tell this is some kind of a tube-frame chassis with a sort-of Mazda RX7 body draped over it and an engine of undetermined origin located to the rear.  Backyard ingenuity lives still.

As we said, low-budget is a highly relative term.

Here you go, Jagermeister fans!  This car runs in a class called Pro 3, as in M3.  It seemed like half the cars in the paddock were some kind of 3-series BMW.  By the way, this car’s owner told us that Jagermeister is not beer, as we had always thought, but a liqueur that tastes like liquid licorice.  Or, as he put it, it tastes like crap.  Must be an acquired taste, but you have to love their livery.

This venerable Formula Atlantic car was way faster than anything else in its 6-car race group, and it sounded nice going up the front straightaway.  Before its race we saw and heard the owner pounding away at length with a hammer on something in the vicinity of the exhaust.  When you don’t have a rolling machine shop for a hauler you make do with whatever you have in the toolbox.

Not all the interesting cars were  on the track.  Check out this Volvo wagon.

Another numerous make was Mazda, mostly RX7s and Miatas, including one RX7 powered by a Corvette V8 engine.

How about a VW Corrado?  We wouldn’t mind having one that looks like this, minus all the graphics, to drive on the street.

Another car you don’t see on a race track very often, a Nissan Sentra.   Interestingly, this rather battered-looking car arrived in a transporter you’d expect to see hauling a 5 million-dollar vintage Ferrari.  We wonder what else the owner has in his car collection.

And finally…

A Morris Minor that has to be over 50 years old but is still out there logging laps and looking good doing it.  We love the Minilite-style wheels on this car.

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.

Fly 005105 – correction to product description

We originally listed this car as having the new Flyslot Alpha inline chassis but it actually has the original pod-type sidewinder chassis.  This makes the car, at $58.95 retail, a great bargain for people looking for the old-style Fly Classic chassis, which is a perennial favorite of many scratchbuilders, kitbashers, and resin-body modelers.

Possible future Pioneer projects?

Check out these photos from the Pioneer Models web site.  These are said to be creations from Pioneer USA (apparently Pioneer’s US distribution arm) that might (or might not) lead to future production models.

This one is described as a “phantom” current-model Camaro GT1 car that could possibly be built on the same chassis platform as one of the Pioneer tube-frame TransAm cars that are due out sometime next year.

This one is a “widebody” Chevy Lumina TransAm/IMSA GTO car that fits a Pioneer Mustang/Camaro chassis (and therefore would also fit a Scalextric TA Camaro chassis).  This car is also a “phantom” but it could easily morph into an Oldsmobile Cutlass, which was raced extensively in TransAm/IMSA and was essentially the same car.  It looks as though a lot of unorthodox thinking is being explored by Pioneer Models, and the results, no doubt, will be interesting.

Sideways Zakspeed Capri CAD image

Sideways Lancia Beta Montecarlo CAD image

Racer Slot Cars just announced plans for a major expansion of its Sideways line of slot cars.  The first two cars scheduled for production are the Zakspeed Capri and the Lancia Beta Montecarlo (images above).  In addition, Racer’s project list includes the BMW 320, Sauber BMW M1, Porsche 935L IMSA, Porsche 935/77,  Mustang GTP, Kremer 935K3 and Moby Dick.  Racer is moving into a segment of the market vacated by Fly and can be expected to produce models with better performance and overall quality.  Clearly Racer, which started as a boutique maker of resin-cast slot cars is moving full-bore into making the transition to a mainstream volume producer of all-plastic slot cars with production in China to keep prices down. We will publish additional information on Racer’s new range of cars as it becomes available.

Just announced by BSR

BSR030 Mercedes 300 SL, Paul O’Shea, SCCA racing 1957.  Paul O’Shea was a very well-known production class driver who enjoyed considerable success in the 1950s with his Mercedes 300SL.  We will have this car in both RTR and painted kit versions up for preorder shortly.

This just in… The government of Bikini Bottom is said to have made a very large cash offer for the rights to run a Formula One race on a circuit yet to be constructed beginning in 2014.  Bernie Ecclestone is reported to be giving the offer “serious consideration” according to an F1 insider who agreed to comment on condition of anonymity.  The principal concern is believed to be the technical issue of what kind of tires the cars will race on.

These two new track items in the Carrera GO! 1/43 scale track system represent a very important development in the progress of 1/43 scale  slot car racing.  They give the GO! track system four different straight track section lengths.  This adds tremendous versatility to the GO! system, exponentially increasing the track builder’s layout options and making complex layouts, especially those modeling real-world racing circuits, much easier to build.  They, along with other additions, vault the GO! system to the forefront of 1/43 scale track systems and take it from the toy end of the market to a place where it now deserves serious consideration from adult hobbyists, helping to set the stage for 1/43 to begin a period of rapid growth and development similar to what  1/32 scale began to experience around 10 years ago.  This is positive for the future of the entire slot car racing hobby.

Pioneer Bullitt Charger converted to a stock car

One of our customers, who prefers to remain anonymous, sent us this article and photos…

Deep in the vast American heartland there’s a wicked-fast half-mile oval with smooth, sticky asphalt, progressive banking, and two great racing grooves. The racers at this track are a special breed. They either remember or have grown up on tales of stock car racing’s golden era, the 60s and 70s, before NASCAR went all tube-frame spec cars. And they are determined to keep the magic alive and kickin’. So, they’ve quietly scoured the country to find real old stock cars from those days. Of course, real racing stock cars of that era have mostly been found and over-restored by wealthy vintage racers, bit every now and then, in some forgotten corner of America, they find one and truck it home. There they rebuild the cars so they look, sound, and drive like in days of old, but they plug in the best of modern safety and performance technology. They also build replicas from old road cars they find.. well, they aren’t saying where. Then they take these cars out to the track two Saturday nights a month from May through September and race the wheels off ‘em. Oh, and it just happens that the half-mile oval is part of a racing complex that includes a 2.8 mile road course. So, just for a change of pace, one Sunday a month they road-race the cars. Oval or road course, these drivers still think that racin’ is rubbin’ and that’s how they drive, but they don’t let the cars get all ratty looking; these racers take pride in how their cars look. The whole countryside turns out for the races. In fact, it seems like half of ‘em are in somebody’s crew. And practically every business for 100 miles around has its name on the fenders of one of the cars, or two, or half a dozen. The locals call them…

SATURDAY NIGHT SPECIALS!

Here’s one of them…

This one is said to have started life as one of the Dodge Chargers used to film the movie Bullitt. Where they found the car is anybody’s guess, and they aren’t telling. It uses the Charger chassis completely unchanged, except for swapping the wheels and tires for a set from a Scalextric NASCAR. The Charger body has been lowered over the chassis by the simple expedient of shortening the body posts and grinding out the wheel openings farther up into the body. The wind wings are gone and the window “glass” modified accordingly. The interior is lifted from a Carrera vintage stock car, unchanged except for a modern helmet on the driver and a slight bit of surgery to clear the endbell on the motor. It fits like it was made for the car. The front air dam is just a rectangle of sheet styrene glued (with some extra material added for strength) to two pieces of styrene tubing that press-fit into the front body screw holes, still allowing the screws to be inserted through them and tightened down. Exhausts are from a Scalextric TransAm car, and a piece of sheet styrene glued to the trailing edge of the body makes a spoiler. The rest is just paint and decals, and most of the decals were printed on an HP inkjet printer using Micro Mark decal paper.

Would you like to see cars like his in production?  It could happen. In fact, we have reason to believe it will happen in the foreseeable future.  There is a substantial market out there for historic stock cars with better on-track performance than Carrera’s or Monogram’s.  We already know that Pioneer can deliver the performance.  In addition, Pioneer is already more than halfway to being ready to produce a Charger stock car.  They can use their existing Charger complete running chassis as is with the exception of swapping out the wheels and tires and adding racing exhausts.  Much of the design work to produce a stock car version of the body can draw upon the design work already done on the road car body.  They won’t be starting from a blank screen.  The basic Charger chassis design, with minor changes in wheelbase and outline, will fit under any of the stock cars raced from the late 50s through the 70s.  All the essential structural elements will remain the same.  In essence, Pioneer would simply have to do on a CAD program what our customer has done in actual plastic, and it’s not that difficult a conversion.  Another fact that isn’t widely known is that the Charger R/T body, as distinct from the charger 500 with it’s “fastback” rear window treatment, was actually used for stock car racing and examples can be found in various photo archives, so we are talking about real historical race cars as well as the opportunity for fantasy liveries like the one shown here.

This is a story that is just beginning to unfold.
