  • I see Scalextric is coming out with a Mustang.

    Notchback body style for 1964 1/2 to 1966. It will be a very nice addition to Trans Am racing!

    Why doesn't my car run like that?

      I don't give it much chance against the TS GT350

        Since there are probably 1000 Scalextric & Pioneer Trans Am cars compared to a TS (non Trans Am) Mustang, this will be much more useful.

      I wish someone would do that Falcon in the background. Why would anyone run a Scaley TransAm against a TS GT350?

        Because a TS GT350 shouldn't be running in Trans Am. It ran in B-production SCCA races.

      This chassis is iffy at best. Being eviscerated on another forum. Speculation is licensor required full interior.

        Another example of the need for a 3d (pricey) chassis, why couldn't a decent chassis have been supplied in the first place

      Scaley is getting a little too pricey for me for what we get. I know, I know, I still am going to complain about it. LOL

              Isn't the bottom line that we're thankful for a major manufacturer to be releasing more American Iron cars from this era? I'm guessing these new cars will race well against similar Scalextric and Pioneer cars, and we always say for the best results race sibling cars against each other. There's more to good racing and fun than what's fastest. If not, no one would watch or enjoy any other form of racing than F1.

                Mention of the Thunder Slot is interesting, as it is NOT a Trans Am car, are clubs going to allow it to run in Trans Am or where it should be in GT class?

                  But they really are not all that similar. Did you see how the motor is mounted? I guess with magnets everything is similar. But if you run without magnets, this chassis may be a dog. I think G Slot tried a chassis with the motor mounted that way. Do you have any G Slots in your stable?

                    No I don't. But I have many Scalextric and Pioneer SW cars and 4 of their inline Javelins. I've gotten them all to be very compatible. In a solo proxy I hosted in the spring a Scaley Camaro was 1st, a Scaley Javelin 2nd, and a Pioneer notchback 3rd. Based on lap times they were separated by mere car lengths after many laps.

                    I only race replicas of Trans Am cars that ran in an actual SCCA race, which I don't think either of these new cars did, so I don't plan to buy them. But only because they aren't race replicas. If they were I probably would and figure out how to work them into the series. It's also reality that not every car in a race or series is going to have the same chance of winning, and yet teams and drivers participate to earn the best finish possible. In Trans Am if team Penske was in a race just about everyone else knew they were racing for an 'also ran' position.

                  I’m going to try to stay out of this
                  BUT
                  Did anyone else notice the lights
                  If it’s supposed to be a T/A
                  WHO GIVES A CRAP ABOUT LIGHTS
                  Yes I know T/A cars had lights but why now?

                    Oh no you don't, there's no island of neutrality in this bare knuckle steel cage throw down! Lather yourself up with oil, put on your freakiest combat tights, and get in the ring. It's a tag team match and now you're it. And if you think a trivial, basically meaningless, difference of opinion about toy cars is silly, well, ... your right actually. But it's the dog days of summer and this is how it goes.

                  Yes please. Wonky motor mounting aside, my Rev/Mono stockers still kick tail all these years later, so I think for home racers it will be ok.

                  The TS, while a fun project, is not a T/A car. Being a TS as well, I'd expect it is not able to meet any rules that would put it on the track with any Scalextric or Pioneer T/A cars. Looks like a different beast altogether to me.
