catalogues. See what we found –

new cars you can look forward to

scale, but AFX are making huge
improvements and introducing
innovative new technology.

years of continuous supply of parts to

fi breglass and lexan bodyshells can be
seen on slot tracks all over the world.

REVIEWS
10 THUNDERSLOT LOLA T70 GT
A new manufacturer with a high
pedigree of racing experience and car
building is always welcome. We test
the prototype Lola T70 GT and fi nd it is
quick – very quick! It has some unique
setup features not seen on other cars.
Oh, yes, almost forgot to mention it has
handling to match the speed. Wow…
46 HEAD TO HEAD CONTROLLERS
Just for a change we decided to
look at some controllers. An upgrade
away from the items found in sets, we
examine stronger, more reliable, and
more suitable controllers for anyone
wanting an easy route to complete
control over your car.
