Well, I'm new to this community and signed up just to say how disappointed I am with Scalextrics' decision to make the long awaited AMC Javelin Trans Am to have a inline motor configuration.
Why would they do that? Everyone knows that has been in this hobby inline and sidewinder configurations are not equal and for this car to have a inline when all others they have produced in the Trans Am series have been sidewinder, I question their reasoning.
I know they announced a PRC chassis that will accept slot it pods (which will NOT be produced this year at least) Scalextric decides to drop it from their releases for 2017! What are they thinking, I for one will think long and hard before investing another dime in their slot cars.
I also noticed that the Tech section for this car does not even say it's inline or sidewinder did they not want us to know, were they hiding that fact? Seems like it, they mention it has rear lights (big deal) as far as I know that's a first, magntraction, bla bla bla, no mention about inline though. Whoever made the decision for inline I hope is fired. I'd be willing to bet I'm not alone waiting for so many years for another Trans Am car to race against what seems to be hunderds of Mustang and Camaro's and finally we get the Javelin and it's not compatible. Someone really blew it. Then to add insult to injury, Scalextric makes the decision to cancel the PRC chassis for it. WOW
That's it I'm outta here
