Sorry to be late.
I love the trucks. They make a detailed track simply great.

The mod to add the diamond plate from the previous prototype is a winner. I also love the way the lights are integrated into the front push bumper. The flat finish on the front bumper looks great. Had mine on pre-order since the Nixon administration and really looking forward to this.

Dave Kennedy - what is the height of this beast? I have to make sure my tunnel can accommodate it.
Thanks to Carrera.

Oh, the diamond plate texture was supposed to be there from the start. Those tiny textures are the last thing that gets etched into the mold, and it happens often, that first decorated samples are done without those details (like radiator meshes).
As it was the case with the first pictures of the Wrecker I posted back then, with the blacked out radiator, too.

I'm glad to see, that the item finally reaches the shops! :)

Height of the model is 70mm (over the stacks, which are removable if issues with the height occur) or 68mm (lightbar / raised fork).

The wrecker is neat, but the tanker is just plain cool!

After some arm-twisting and general bribery and corruption, I'm pleased to say I have secured a wrecker and a tanker.

Both of them will be situated around the Pioneer Test Track.

The slot car business needs more 'left of centre' product.

5*'s to Carrera for those trucks.
