2019 Series – Thunder Slot

<PHOTO>

Series Manager: Russell / Shawn
Schedule: Q2-2019 (April-June) – see Google calendar for exact dates.

ThunderSlot was founded by Giovanni Montiglio, a designer from NSR who wanted to create a higher quality but more affordable product, based on design elements that proved successful at both NSR and Slot.It.  His inaugural offerings are LOLA T70 MK-III coupes and spyders that were successful in the late 1960s.  These cars have fantastic performance out-of-the-box. Components are high-quality including motors equivalent to Slot.It Orange-end-bells (21.5k), NSR style chassis and triangle motor pods, with durable lightweight bodies plus Lexan interiors.  The use of a similar platform and minimal modifications makes this both a driving and tuning challenge, weighted toward driver skill.
