The range of slot cars that we have all been waiting for... The new Legends from Pioneer have been taking shape and are completing the final stages of testing before final production.
We was recently shown this test model by Martin De'ath at the Pendle Slot Racing shop. As you can see from our photos, the body has been custom painted in the yellow and black Pioneer colours.
Most of you will be familiar with the Legends Race Series. Many countries host Championships for the 1200cc Yamaha motorcycle engined 5/8th scale replicas.
As mentioned above, the full size real race cars are 5/8th scale replicas. The size of the Pioneer Legends model to most racers and collectors will look like a 1/32 slot car, but in reality it is more 1/28th scale.
The possibilities of different liveries is endless.
The technical specification of the chassis are to be confirmed. This model has been fitted with Slot.it metal gears but the standard models are likely to be of plastic material.
We await more details of release dates and liveries of the first Pioneer models.
If you can't wait until then, Pendle Slot Racing have two 1/32 scale resin kits of the Chevy Coupe and Chevy Sedan.
