I have the three pictured (minus the red one). I think they're going to make a great IROC set.

The #1 livery is special for me as it is very close to the way the car ran at the 1970 South African Grand Prix. My wife made a painting for me that hangs outside my home office:

The car itself runs very well, as close to the red Lotus 72 as it is possible to get with two different slot cars. Initially I wondered why the extra nose length had not been used to extend the guide a bit further forward, but the parity of performance between the two cars explains that!

One little change I made was to carefully remove the driver's helmet and re-position it so it no longer looked like Sir Jackie was star gazing! As it arrived, the helmet was tilted severely upwards, but a little wiggling and teasing managed to break the glue joint without any damage.

Both my Policars are using the option F22 tires, and I have modified the rear wheels by cutting an airspace into the rim and using foam inserts under the tires. This gives a very smooth and grippy ride.
