Watch out!!! This lizard flies!

Scalextric is releasing another 911 GT2 livery, and one that is long over due. The ALMS Flying Lizard livery is coming out as a "Collectors Centre" car this year.
The car will feature the new yellow 20k mabuchi, mounted as a sidewinder.

And now the real car from Lime Rock '05.

I think its time Scalextric revisited the wheels for these cars.

I agree, especially since they aren't correct (at least for the race I saw, the wheels were silver) but that's a detail most won't really care that much about.

Maybe a fresh chassis design would be good too. In theory Scalex could produce these 911's forever since they've been raced in so many liveries. And since there are possibly as many as 20 of these 911's (different liveries that is) it may be time they have played this body out.

The 911 GT2 is such a standard racer it would be great to see Scalex breathe some fresh air into these cars.
