Cars bought by members in 2020 - CMOTD - 4th-Jan-20

Time to start this one then, what have you bought this year?


My first purchase, Slot.It Mercedes 190E DTM:[attachment=4974]

Very pretty but it seems that not even the mighty Slot.It are free of quality control problems. Fired it up and no response, took it apart to find that one of the lead wires wasn't connected to the braids. Also the front wheels wouldn't turn, adjustment screws on the axle too tight. Not a major problem and easily fixed but you would expect a £50 car to actually run straight out of the box!

A small query, this packet of bits was included:[attachment=4975]

The wheel  inserts, grub screws and Allen key are fairly self explanatory but can anybody tell me what the washer, black and chrome plastic bits are for please?

BTW - if you buy these in the Drift set be careful when extracting them from their poly bag. The door mirrors might pull out and bounce away...

First two of the year for me. Needed to adjust the rear wheels on the Mercedes as they were pushed to far onto the axle.
