2018 RevoSlot Porsche 993 GT2

In 1996 if you wanted to go endurance racing in the GT2 class you had two options – race a Porsche 911 GT2 or lose. The Porsches were that dominate in the mid-90’s that they won just about every GT2 race and every GT2 series. They were the perfect mix of power, handing and more importantly – durability. The club is looking for the same level of durability in our RevoSlot Porsche 911 GT2 series. The rules are the most simple one the club has ever used with the goal of putting the focus more on drivers skill than choice of car or set up.

2018 NSR Rally: Renault Clio R3 vs Abarth S2000

The Fiat Punto S2000 modified by Abarth and the Renault Clio modified by Renault Sport were built specifically to compete in the IRC – International Rally Challenge as well as the WRC – World Rally Championships. Both cars were evenly matched and both were spectacular to watch. They not only excited the crowds with their drifting around turns they also sounded fantastic as drivers pushed the cars to the absolute limits.

Fly Ferrari GTO Slot.It Converson Project

Soon after the release of the Slot.It Ford GT I started looking to see what other cars the chassis might fit. The Fly Ferrari GTO, of which there are many variations, is a near-perfect fit. These cars have beautiful bodies but with the front-mounted motors, the cars don’t run well without magnets. Replacing the Fly chassis with the Slot.It sidewinder chassis promised to work much better. The BRM wire wheels really add the finishing touch.
