Went down to see Roland and Troy at the Slotshop today and they had the new Peugoet 908s in from Avant Slot. I am a fan of any car from France and this one was a must have. I never bought the Audi R8 that Avant first bought out but had seen them run on comp nights and they were very quick and competitive.
The 908 looks great in all black, they are all numbered and are part of a 1000 car release. The case is stamped and so is the underside of the car.
I almost forgot to mention, this beast weighs in at 76grams.The 908 is running the Orange Avant motor, which I think runs at 29k, the gearing is a 9/27 whick I found great running on 10v, non magnet on Artin track.
The only thing I dislike is that there is no room for wider tires (11mm). The car is still tail happy on exit, dial that out and the laprecord will be broken! This is a serious racer's car with lots of options you can tinker with. The fastest cars at the moment at the "Slotshop" are the NSR Mosler (4.0), Spirit Silloute (4.1), Avant Slot Audi R8 (4.1) and the SCX PRO Audi R8 (3.9), this 908 will be competing for the top spot.
parryana was also luck enough to get his hands on both the new Pescarolo 2006 Test Car and the Pescaraolo Le Mans 2007, he was nice enough to send some photos of those in too. Thanks mate.
