I doubt whether AGM = AMG.

But if yes - have a look at the customer reviews here :

http://www.amazon.com/AMG-Life-Like-Sty ... B00GVFQMEG

Here it is called AMG

And don´t forget - we talk about China. Very often nice colurful pictures, spectacular previews and then...much noise for nothing.

Looking at the car size in the youtube video my opinion is they maybe said to be 43rd scale but they aren´t . They all look too similar in size, partially unrealistic.

Here it is called AGM.....
Watch on youtube.com

Watch on youtube.com

Two different things, I know.

They seem to have any usable facilities, but far away from selling, just as giving clear answers. giving

Spin Drive with Dynamo in each handle. Was that not a Revell system using Artin track?

Spin drive track works with artin, same markings on the bottom of it, looking at agm on the river website, appears to have all the same layouts as artin but with the Spin drive dynamos and newer cars. Artin are small closer to o scale than a true 43... From my research artin also sold as home brand to many stores. Thinking that they may be trying to update the name, or sold out tooling... Other than that has all the earmarks of artin.... Quack Quack Quack


Still exciting possibility of new digital offering

I´m really looking forward to those great looking Minis :D (crossing my fingers on those ;) )
And the digital system looks really promising to me.

A quote from a guy (madweazl) that posted in my thread on Slotforum

The response I got from them: "The video you saw is our Digital slot car set, it's ready to lanched on June, because we are waiting for approval of Mercedes, Alfa-Romeo and Fiat. We have their licensed car." Not Fiat fan but the Alfa's could be cool!

Can't wait to have more details , hopefully one of you guys can buy one & review it so we know more about it before we buy , if it's not to expensive?

So now we're mid June... anybody have any info/news about the product?
One thing that I am curious about is (Cjent can ask the guy by email?) that AGM digital is part or is the same company/brand as AMG spin drive or maybe Revell spin drive? (maybe all of them the same one?)

I got 2 Mini from AGM digital for my birthday. As the cars do not drive on my analog Track - first thing i did was to open the cars.
on the bottom there is a switch which will perform witchcraft ...

what i found:
- paint and decals are really nice.
- very good rear axle with nearly no play
- lighting with LEDs on the digital board on the front. whole front lights up
- window insert is an extra part - could be easily removed and clear windows added
- front wheels on stub axles - extra parts that could be removed. they are angled
- guide: rotating guide, moves easily when the wires are removed. the original wires are hard and not flexible

The car looks really nice! Any word if the digital system is any good? Does AGM have a website?

Best regards,

I kind of like the design with the snap in bushings.

Where are these available at?
Cheers
