-I'm not a scale nut  :crazy:

 

I get that.... I am probably at the other end of the spectrum.

Track test as relayed by Billy Watson:

 

"The Auburn Boat Tail is here and it is beautiful; a run on the track shows that it is not all show - it runs as good as it looks. Each time I look at the chassis I see more detail, like the center chassis moving separately from the side rails, the body pin tubes curved to fit the chassis, the wheels with centers, the exhaust headers, I will keep looking for more detail.

 

The Boat Tail is faster than the Jupiter you made me but not as fast as Minnie's Go-Kart, but then I am very carful with it. The Auburn has more speed to give, but who cares, its not a race car, its a car you can sit and run just for the fun of it, and hear the new guys say, what is that?

 

Thanks Pablo"

I got to run the Boattail myself today and I found Billy's assessment to be true.

Handles very smooth and gracefully, with plenty of speed. A joy to drive :good:
