I am sure the car will sell like hotcakes due to all the Gulf fans so it was a smart marketing move.
Yeah ! I believe I did see photos of the "prototype" (that was actually a different real car, just done up in "Gulf" for fun !)

But I tryin' to decide whether to buy 2 ... or 3 of them, so they can be "updates" of my Gulf 917's !!!

Relax... everything's ok.

And I assure I am very real.

I do recall kinda recently when Slot. It released the Muegello Marlboro 956 with the black dashes on the side, quite a few of us( myself included) called in wondering "WT Heck" and the great Murizio produced photos of the exact car an we quietly calmly went back to racing

I have nothing less then total faith in this man

Now lets go back to being friends and back to racing!!

Default 956/952 Madness

Spent a few quiet moments starting a new book -- Porsche 956/962 Photographic History --Glen Smale. Ohhhhhhhh, boy. Muzario, you will be wearing the molds totally out!!!

Like his previous 917 volume, most of the photos are previously unpublished and include testing sessions, Interserie -- all the good stuff --plus the regular liveries that we know and love --long live Group C !!!!!!

We'll be running a Group C Anniversary race (all Slot it based, non-evo 6 chassis) on Tuesday evening at Redhill Raceway --- I'll let you know what happens!!!!

Later,

Steve

July3, just received the SICA09e Porsche 956KH 'Gulf', in Maui.. First Time, i've seen the Gold spoked Wheels on the Front..~ What's the deal? are those availablel as a seperate Wheel#?? i'd luv to add several to my collection of Slot.its, as an alternate Wheel.. are they 'Grub-Screw', also?? or/pop-ons? (i'm not about to break the seal~ will have to order another few!, and, nice choice, with possible adding the #50-car!! RVSP code#, / information, if possible.. ~aloha, Thom in Maui~~

Thom, the fronts are usual the 15 x 8 plastic push on wheels for Group C cars, the new insert is PA55, the old part is PA21, not sure if the new ones are available yet. The old Group C wheels were gold spoked also, just covered up by separate extractor piece.
