R34 slot cars are on ebay, and about 30$ a pop. Else just slot bodies are ALL over the place. I might visit Freddy Hobby Town as well as Rockville Hobby Works after I get this thing in mail to see what slot cars may fit this guy well.

Don't forget some odds and ends like Arii 1/32 model kits under 10$ or that slot-car-model-kit line that had some initial D lineup (I have the corolla).

Got mine in- http://skv012altd.blogspot.com/2011/...as-landed.html

Just noticed that Kenon has this car in stock. Wonder if this means we'll be seeing some PN upgrades for it eventually... Philip???

not going to bother with the trouble of modding bodies to fit at the moment. i'm in no rush and will wait for the others to get released.

I would not be suprised to see the same body with just the different paint for this car from HPI.....I would bet it will take long time for them come out with some different nice bodies for these.....It is actually a lot of fun to Mod bodies to fit....Ok, Ok, Not too much fun, But the real fun when they are Finished!!! I know YOU ( Arch2b) have the ability to make some bodies fit as I have seen lots of your posts in the past

I was thinking they were showing some of their "slot car" line up as well.
I hope you are right as I would love to have some "Snap-on-&-go" bodies from them..............Sooner than Later though

Carrara has 4 different 1/32 nascar bodies only available now for only 8.50 each. Wheelbase will need to be lengthened a bit though.

Also want to note that unlike our 1/28, these 1/32 cars are NOT deformed in any way. Comparing just the R32 skylines, our Kyoshos are squished quite a bit. I noticed the same with AE86 Corolla, its HORRIBLY squished.

Any updates from anyone on the rs32 platform? Any successful slot car body transplants or performance tuning? Seems like once they released and people played with them, interested just about died. The 1 car my local hobby shop got has yet to sell and they have it stickered for $99 I think.

There are some vids on youtube, a new one I just discovered:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7RBfuhbYDM
This car is beautifull!!

On slotforum.com a guy has bought one too and put an BMW M3 body on it.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anzgg...layer_embedded

As soon as I have some trackspace in my house (I have 6.5mx3.5m available, but need some carpet), I will buy it. Just hope HPI will push this product a bit with bodys and stuff.

I wonder if Slotcars will become more popular with dSlot43 and HPI Slotcars in Japan, this could help this scale a lot. Let's be honest: it's much nicer than 1/28 and still a nice scale with looooots of bodys available

Full line of rs32 bodies at Tower Hobbies

I've been browsing around and found the full line of rs32 rc cars at Tower Hobbies.
Links aren't working though.
edit: my bad, that wasn't the full line.
