The only down side to these highly detailed, scale accurate and visually stunning slots is that they don't perform on the track that well. In fact they are pretty bloody terrible straight from the box. With a bit of love and some performance parts, you can however turn your beauty into a high-performing lap machine. The 2 Cartrix slots featured here have had their spoked wheels upgrade with Racer wire rims and rubber, (RCRWR1) Slot.it front/rear axles and gearing. The result, a complete transformation into a beautifully handling and performing slot car.
The downside is that these upgrades come a a significant price and combined with the initial outlay for the slot, you are looking at around $US120 per car. Not exactly cheap but what a slot car!
