The new POLICAR line of entry level models is a great way to start slot car racing with robust yet properly performing models aimed at racing at home.
Policar have designed these cars with our younger customers in mind: new, modern cars with worldwide appeal, lights, a simple one piece chassis, 'easy change' braids, and of course Slot.it plastic wheels and tyres for a smooth ride. They're the models that will also be featured inside the POLICAR boxed sets. The cars can be easily converted to digital racing with the digital in-car ICs.
The first model will be the Toyota GT86 No.17 GR Gazoo Racing (PC-CT01a).
Lights - Front and rear lights.
Chassis - Rather than the usual Policar/Slot.it chassis, a simpler, single piece solution.
Magnet - The cars are supplied with traction magnet, because it is likely that these models will also be used on tracks with very limited grip, such as those found in many homes. The same cars, when found inside the boxed Policar sets, will not have a traction magnets, since Policar tracks will feature adjustable power supply and good mechanical grip.
Wheels - Assembled from Slot.it plastic 17.3x8 wheels and inserts, to guarantee their roundness, a tried and tested combination on all other Policar models.
Tyres - Slot.it C1 slick tyres 19.8x9.5mm.
Gearing - 9/27
Upgrades - Model may be further tuned with Slot.it performance parts such as motors, wheels, tyres, axles and gears.
Chassis upgrade - A 'racing' plastic Slot.it chassis will be made available for these models.
Also to accompany the Toyota GT86 will be the Subaru WRX and Maserati GT4 with various liveries planned. We expect these cars will be a firm favourite not just for home racers but for competition club classes.
