The ManicSlot Mini Review
- The Scalextric Lotus Type 49 is an incredibly popular slot and has excellent potential to become highly collectible
- Very impressive 'from the box' performance, (sub 6 seconds on my track!)
- beautifully detailed slot car
- Forced centering guide
- Fantastic paint finish
- Perhaps a little fragile, (especially rear exhausts)
- Average non magnetic performance
The Lotus Type 49 is an excellent release from Scalextric. A slot that looks as good as it performs on the track. Amazingly this little slot car almost attained 'cult' collection status over night!
Even if you not a classic F1 fan you owe it to yourself to have at least one of these gems in your collection.
