SLOT SOUL: Audi R8C RAW

SLOT SOUL: Slot.it Audi R8C RAW

I recently purchased a Slot.it Audi RAW and while the slot is one of the most impressive non-magnetic slot cars I have ever driven its plain orange plastic finish doesn't really justify its on-track performance.

It was time to get out the spray cans and give this slot car an exterior that looks more at home on the race track.

I have had a set of Porsche 962 Bob Jane T-Mart decals lying around for a few years and decided it was finally time to put them to use.

One good thing (I think) about the Audi R8C is that there are very few actual liveries of the race car so you are almost forced to do a 'fantasy' livery which can be fun. I decided to paint the sides of the car black so it looked similar to the paint schemes on the Audi R8Cs that ran at Le Mans in 1999.

Good work with the fantasy livery - I've always thought the plain orange RAW was very ordinary. The Bob Jane livery works for me!
