Took a performance driving course in my 1:1 on Saturday. Great fun but now I've got the bug and want to start doing trackdays!

    The GT86 in my profile pic. Not that fast (though the speedo said 142mph on the banked high-speed bowl at Millbrook) but the handling is epic :-D

    Cool! I have been looking at those, but think I will go for the MX-5.

Has anyone else wondered why Bburago makes really awesome 1:24 cars, but they don't produce them in 1:18? The 12c, Sesto Elemento, Murcielago SV, Aventador SV, 918, and MC12 are just a few

    What's it about?

    It's about a racing driver grappling with career doubts. He tries to find spirituality through driving.

    The story takes place around the demise of Group C Endurance Racing (late 1980s).

    Nope - I think Mark was in Austin for the Grand Prix.

Missed out on a Ricko Vector W8 last night. It was only bid up to £12.50 with five minutes to go, I bid at £28.77 with 8 seconds left - it went for £29!. The other guy got a bargain. I'd love to know what his max bid was.

    I think that same logic is happening on almost all of the models on the bay lol

    Agreed. I'm sure members of the forum walked off with the Kyosho Countaches and Exoto 934s today. As frustrating as it can be to be outbid at the last moment, it's good to see the enthusiasm of the community.

    If anybody on here won the Vector and wants to turn an immediate £5 profit, hit me up.

You can get some hilariously good deals on diecast locally if you look hard enough. I'm getting addicted!

    ^ ya thats like our quebec. Horribly high prices and the models stay there for years.

    Where are you looking?

    Oct 22 2016 05:07 PM
  • StratosWRC's Photo
    the last few were from ebay canada. I did a real broad search. Just put in 1/18 in "diecast toy and vehicles" category and specified location to "only canada". Gave me 3000+ results but so many good deals.

Anybody want a Bburago Chiron Review? I took some pictures but I'm not sure if you guys want feedback on the model.

To any of those considering to bid or already bidding on the black Koysho Countach on eBay, please STAY AWAY from it. I want it and it's probably damaged anyway, so you don't want it anyway.
Oct 19 2016 04:51 PM
  • AOS's Photo
    I wouldn't draw attention to it if I didn't want people to know about it. Now that you've informed me about it...

    It was a joke post AOS lol

    Less than a day to go. The feeding frenzy has begun. Time to grab some popcorn. It's times like this that make me wonder why nobody else makes a decent 1/18 Countach. I hope this one gets into your collection, snackwel5.

Hate the new autoart site. Where can i see the old models???
Oct 19 2016 03:37 PM
  • snackwel5's Photo
    I was complaining about that a few days ago too. It's completely stupid. I use that website for reference on model pictures and original asking price to see if a model is a good deal

Is miniaturasmartin.com reliable ? Anyone dealt with them ?
