  • Video - Scalextric IROC decals - behind the scenes - IROC project

    A video discussing the IROC Camaro project I helped with and I show some newly made decals being sold by a slotbrother from Home Racing World.
    This will be a first video (I think) where I go into detail about some of the cars I've helped get done over the years.

        2 thumbs up on the video and greatly appreciate your candor and behind the scenes comments. I hope you make more videos 'cause I'll definitely watch them all. HRW is the only forum I follow so a video series about the hobby from both an enthusiast's perspective and the business perspective would be enlightening for me.

            So, Dave was responsible for giving Scalextric bogus data about the wheelbase of the new IROC Camaros. I guess it is the stretched limo version of the car.

              Dave, Can you make it longer? He seems to never have anything good to say about anything.

            No I didn't give them the dimensions for the car. They found them on the internet and scanned a diecast for the dimensions.

              Hi Dave. Great video. Thanks for giving us some more insight on the process involved with planning a new car. I don’t have one of the new Camaro IROCs yet, but will be getting a few as I want to get a couple decal sheets to go with them. Awesome! Hope all is well.

                  Okay Dave, I'll give you a thumbs up on going to bat for this particular model.

                  It's just too bad that the Scalextric model makers missed somewhat in their execution of this car. If they scanned from a diecast it was a poor representation and shouldn't have been used.

                  The model's overall length is good and to scale.

                  The production 1:1 vehicle wheelbase was 101", But, I have found reference that the IROC race car wheelbase was 105", Scalextric's version at 1:1 would be just over 107" so only about 2% too long and 1/16" in 1/32 scale, probably not noticeable.

                  The production 1:1 vehicle roof height was approx 50", I found reference that the IROC race car height was 49", Scalextric's version at 1:1 would be 44", so still 10-11% too short and that is noticeable.

                  And one other thing that stands out to me like a sore thumb is the blunt front fascia, there should be a forward peak at the center.

                  *This post was revised to reflect IROC race car info that I located.
