I didn't get chance to do a proper round of news or Digest this week, but this was difficult to ignore.

I speculated a while back that Avant Slot might produce the 2021 Dakar class winning Kamaz, but they've actually produced the whole team. The winner is available separately, but the four strong team is only available as an exclusive, presumably expensive, and strictly limited edition of just 25 units.

I sometimes get the feeling that cars that are announced as new,  I've seen before. Perhaps these are new to one of Scaleauto's many classifications, perhaps they are restocks, or maybe I'm mistaken. I honestly don't know, but Scaleauto say they are new arrivals.

These Scaleauto cars were all done in Home Series and R-series.
New is these cars in RS series.

Thanks for clearing that up Henk. Thumbup

So the bodies are the same, but the mechanicals underneath are different?

Morning Jason,

It's a R Version with metal front wheels and suspension as far as I know.

Now, that one is tempting.  I'm always on the look-out for Group A rally cars.

Best regards,
