This is the AFX Audi R18 White Paintable Mega G+ HO Slot Car. The Mega-G+ chassis makes it possible to create stunning bodies that take realism to levels never before seen in 1/64th scale. With the paintable body featured on this car, you can create your own custom Audi R18.
2016 was Audis last year contesting the World Endurance Championship. That years R18 was arguably the most fearsome weapon produced in 18 years of competition and 13 Le Mans wins. Beautiful in a brutish way, it is wonderfully efficient aerodynamically.
And the cars aerodynamics made it a singular challenge for AFX when creating the body in 1/64th scale. In fact, this is the most complex body we have ever made with 15 full depth body openings, way more than we or anyone else has ever done. But the payoff comes when the spectacular body and dramatic graphics are combined in a stunning new HO beauty from AFX
Because of the Mega G+ chassis, only AFX can bring it to you. With the lowest, narrowest chassis ever made in this scale, the correct proportions can be maintained along with deep aerodynamic channeling which cant be done with any other chassis.
Audi campaigned two cars in 2016. The number 7 actually won the first race of the year at Silverstone but was excluded from the results when it was found that the underbody failed an after race check. The two car team finished 2nd overall in the 2016 Championship.
The white paintable version of the car is perfect for serious modelers who want to create their own special livery and serious racers who want a different look for their favorite speedster.
Oh yeah, its also wonderfully drivable, fast and fun!What is the Mega G+ Race System?
It is a Slot Car system
that delivers the perfect balance of grip and speed. The result is a
slot car set that is easier to learn and easier to drive at the limit so
you have more fun fast and keep having fun longer.
this by redesigning our famous Mega-G chassis, designing a new power
unit and precisely mating it to our upgraded AFX120 controller and our
exclusive Tri-Power Pack. With decades of slot car innovation and over a
year of experimentation behind it, we believe the Mega G+ Race System
is the best out of the box slot car system you can buy.
Mega G+ Chassis
new chassis is the heart of the Mega G+ Race System. It is not just
faster and better handling than the competition, now it is even
smoother, more consistent, more intuitive and more fun to drive than any
car weve ever built.
