2012 Slot.it Challenge – 60’s Prototypes: Round#2 Results

These cars have beautiful bodies but with the front-mounted motors, the cars don’t run well without magnets. Replacing the Fly chassis with the Slot.It sidewinder chassis promised to work much better. The BRM wire wheels really add the finishing touch.
