Nothing new I'm interested in, but some nice repaints.

I like the new livery on the Javelin, and the white Camaro too. I'm a Carrera digital guy, but I have quite a few Scaley cars.
But most of all, I am impressed by the sheer number of products Scalextric has brought the last 2 years.

Maybe it's worth noting the number of American models this year from Scalextric vs...

i originally thought it was a typing error but its not.
they are going to do a 1997 mclaren gtr, the model
that slot-it has extensively covered.
i understand a 1995 version, they can do a better job than ninco,
but i dont understand the 97 in an already flooded market.

I believe the Mclarens will all be "short tails" (Ninco) not "long tails" (Slot it)

thank you oceanview f your input, you are correct,
i went to slotcar-today reference picture of the 97 version
and it has a long nose, but short tail.
the 95's have a short nose, short tail.
55 years old and still teachable.
i like the rendition and will add it to my toy car budget
when its released.

after more research i found there is no such thing as a short tail, long nose
mclaren f-1 gtr.
scalextric nov; c3917-mclaren f1 gtr 1997 nurburgring; planned release is a 1995 mclaren short tail
that raced at nurburgring in 1997.
which leads me to believe there will be no scalextric 1997 mclaren long tails [slot-it] planned f release in 2018.
i have the day off and have time to do this.
