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!
CraigWhat car do you have ?

spikyoneThe 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

Finished a short story I had been working on for over a year. Feeling accomplished.
snackwel5What's it about?

ChallIt'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).

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.
snackwel5I think that same logic is happening on almost all of the models on the bay lol

ChallAgreed. 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.

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

hi! Anyone know if http://www.toycargo.com/ is reliable? is there someone here who had dealt with them?
You can get some hilariously good deals on diecast locally if you look hard enough. I'm getting addicted!
StratosWRC^ ya thats like our quebec. Horribly high prices and the models stay there for years.

AOSWhere are you looking?
Oct 22 2016 05:07 PM
StratosWRCthe 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.
snackwel5Would love to see one!

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.
AOSI wouldn't draw attention to it if I didn't want people to know about it. Now that you've informed me about it...
Oct 22 2016 05:16 PM
snackwel5It was a joke post AOS lol
Oct 22 2016 07:46 PM
ChallLess 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.
