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 ever used, aiming to focus more on drivers skill than choice of car or set up.

Thunder Slot Lola T70 MKIII

The Lola T70 race car, designed by Eric Broadley, was a hit right out of the box, winning the inaugural Can-Am Challenge in 1966.

ThunderSlot cars, founded by Giovanni Montiglio, have proven to be very quick right out of the box. For this one-marque series, cars will run mostly stock with only a few optional parts, this should create a level playing field and fierce competition.

Recreating some of this excitement is the goal of this series. Expect to see some of the same drifting and smell some of the tires burning as they race around the clubs new rally track.

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.
