    For those interested in the new Toyota Supra or Dodge Viper it sounds like they will not be available until next November.  Unfortunately after our series has started.  There are plenty of new Porsche liveries as well as the new Marcos LM600.

    Don’t forget that we will be running this series with RevoSlot foam tires.  This should take the guessing work out of the tire issues we had in the 2018 series.  We will also be opening up the motor choice to alleviate any motor issues.

    More to come.

    Just posted today on RevoSlots Facebook page.

     

    It looks like the Vipers will be available in a few weeks while the Toyota’s will not be available until late summer.  I think the Viper will be a popular choice.

    Good News: these new cars use phillips-head body screws.
    Bad News – the body screws are small and short.
    The chassis is body specific; otherwise the architecture is the same as the 2017/18 Porsche.
    Guide, wheels, tires, motor mount, float plate.
    *The guide screw is still a #6-Torx.

    I expect to run the Porsche I ran last year that has yellow marking number 64.  My car has a different number to distinguish it from the factory version.

    ALL:

    The official rear wheel and tire for the upcoming RevoSlot series will be Scaleauto’s new SC-2012 rear foam tire/wheel combination.  This will be the easiest way to get everyone on the same wheels/tires without any issues in how to glue on tires or even if they will work.  We already know the Scaleauto Comp3 tires work great on our track.  So looking forward to this series.

    The details about the wheels/tires can be viewed on Scaleauto’s Facebook page.

    And who carries the wheels that I did not fin on the first two sites I checked.  Also what tires and which vendor?  I know we are a few months away from running even practice, but I don’t want to get caught without the tires.

    Randy and All,

    The wheels/tires will be available in Europe in one week and in the States when Alan orders them.  They have already been manufactured and are just waiting for distributors to order and receive them.  I will update everyone once they are available.  We are still four months away so I am not too worried.  You can still run your car with the stock shore 30 tires to get it set up and running.  The foam tires will only improve things.

    I just ordered four pairs of the new Scaleauto SC-2021 wheels/tires from Cric Crac – currently the only place that has them.  Not surprising since Cric Crac is the retail face of Scaleauto.  Looking forward to getting them in and seeing how they work.  If they are anything like their 1/24 counterparts they will be fantastic!  I can’t wait for this series.

    How many rear tire sets should we expect to use during the series including 100’s of practice laps?  Are we also using  new sponge front tires pre-mounted on wheels?

    Randy – it all depends on how hard you are on your tires.  I would think two sets would get you through practice and races.

    Yes.  You are correct.  I have 4 pairs coming for us to try out.  I can’t imagine they wouldn’t be anything but amazing.  These cars will be so fun running foam tires.
