Whoa Nelly

Ditto to what was said in the 1/9/19 post. Liked Dick Johnson, bought it as my first add-on car, surprised by the poor handling, am adding a new magnet as well!

Dick Johnson Falcon - visually stunning

So this is my first independent purchase of a modern Scalextric car. I saw it in the local hobby shop and as I was a fan of Dick Johnson this was a must have. I’ve always loved the shape of the XA to XC Falcon Coupé and the Scalextric versions are excellent. The roll cage is a bit of a poor fit but everything else is perfect. The wheels especially look brilliant along with the colour scheme. I certainly do not miss having to put my own decals on. The car seems to be slowed somewhat by the magnet, however a bit of spirited driving will see the car leave the track reasonably easily. If there is an upgrade for the motor then I would like to try it, or I’ll have a go at removing the magnet.
A great looking car that I’m sure I’ll get some use from.
