Kurt,
A very balanced review with sharp photography and both your positive and negative comments. I will forward your suggestions to NINCO.

Gentlemen, As for price, I think the subject of NINCO pricing will always come up, but in the case of this car, it comes with the N-Digital chip which MSRP's at $27.98. The analog version of the car is $52.98 MSRP.... so buying the analog version, then deciding to "chip" it for digital will cost $75.96 (MSRP). So overall, at $69.98 (MSRP) considering how it looks and runs, it's really a pretty good value, and judging by the few that I have left, others think it's good value too.

Hi, Bob. We had racing at my house last night, and four of the guys tried both my digital version of the Corvette and the analog version.

Impressions were:
The analog version was surprisingly good on the wood track directly out of the box. The motor is a bit weak at 12 volts.
The motor on the digital version is plenty with the stock Ninco power.
They liked the way the car handled, both the digital car on Ninco track and the analog car on wood.
Lack of an interior was a problem for one guy, not a problem for the others.
As an 'entry-level' car, they were pleased with the looks and performance. One of the guys commented on the performance being appropriate for entry level, as opposed to other magnet-missile entry level cars.
As always, price was the question, but two of the guys said they'd be interested in buying one of the N-Digital cars. One has the yellow version 'on lay-away'.
The tires seemed to make a good impression on them -- pretty true out of the box, nice grip on wood and Ninco tracks.
One guy mentioned how the car corrected itself very well, great for beginners.
It was also mentioned that the car didn't look out of place with the other cars on the track, where other beginner cars do.

My impression from watching them with the cars: they didn't rave about them, "best thing since sliced bread" type of stuff, but made several positive comments. They spent quite a bit of time driving both the analog and digital cars, and they were pretty comfortable pushing them. The lack of a powerful motor didn't bore them, they just tried more stuff in the curves.

I'd really like to get the "kid test", and see how they like them.

If you need the "kid test", send them to me. I still drive like a kid with a learner's permit.

*grin*
Which one would you like, the digital or analog? I'll be happy to ship you the car to try for yourself.
