AWRA Rules Clarification

September 2022

In response to the concern from the racing community about the legality of the original Caveman Bodeez Dirt Late Model body, allow us to clarify AWRA's position. 

The original body is out of production. The AWRA had NO SAY in this matter. To be as fair as we can, we are grandfathering in the original body until the end of 2022.

Datsun 240Z Announced by BRM ModelCars

BRM has shown a prototype of a new car for their range. It is the Datsun 240Z 1:24 scale slot car now in the late development phase. 

Davide Vallese from BRM himself has confirmed the Datsun 240Z project. 

This model is being worked on in collaboration with the USA importer, Alan Smith's Scaleracing, as was done with the TransAm Cars. 

The Datsun 240Z, which according to the shape of the air dam and rear spoiler, looks like a 1971 BRE SCCA version, will most likely be on dealer's shelves sometime in 2023.
