Below are my new handle colors. They should be here in about 2 weeks.

 

While I have picked out preliminary names I want some help from all the clever slot racers out there to come up with better ones! This time I will be sending a handle to each person who's name I use for that color handle.

 

If you are the first to guess the handle color I have already chosen, and that is the one I eventually use, I will still send you a handle, even if you are in another country!

 

Let the naming begin!

Eshorer has already guessed my preliminary name of Midnight black.

 

BrettC has already also guessed my first choice of electric blue as well. I do like the Cobalt blue name.

 

Both of the silver/gray colors have a very fine glitter added to them.

 

You can enter more than once if you think of a better name.

Phil, not sure if I am doing red. Everyone disliked the Parma red because it was too pink. I have some samples of an orange coming in with and without sparkles. The handle colors I picked will all go with at least 2 or 3 of my circuit board colors.

 

The "clear" handle has a very light gray in it so it would be close to a bright silver color with the sparkles added.

 

Who wants red? Orange?  Any other color? I would get the occasional complaint when I used yellow, purple or "pink" Parma handles on my controllers so I have avoided them for now.

That Parma was too pink. I'm thinking Candy Apple Red.

I had no problem selling red parma handles On eBay lots of guys and girls loved them. Wish i had a 1,000.
As to other colors, Dark green, Gold with sparkles, baby blue and dont forget smoke is probably the best-selling handle Parma had.

DavidR, maybe when I add a black PCB to my line up down the line I will also add a red handle. Smoke is nice but I decided to go with black tint instead. I wanted gold but it was not really possible for a color.

 

Eddie, my 1:1 car is actually blue with most of the chrome painted black or in black carbon fiber hydro dip so I like your thinking.

 

The contest ends in about 2 weeks when the handles arrive.
