one of the most anticipated releases SCX has arrived here for review. since the first announcement of the Aero 8, enthusiasts have commenting on how much they looking forward to it and felt was a great choice by SCX to produce. So let us a close look at this all new hot rod we?

Not everyone will appreciate the of this model but we certainly do This car has the look and feel of an roadster but in reality it is a modern car through and through.

It appears SCX has done a great job all around this model. Colors and are very accurate and they are crisp and opaque. The very white lettering will you in and it is very clear to read.

A adequate clear coat all of this in place.

I like a like this. Something different that truly out from the rest. Not that I anything against the other in this series, but many of have been done and time again.

This little car brings fresh air so to speak to this The large rear wing not take some of the harder but it does have some in it to help absorb some of the

The model is lighted front and which is now a SCX standard it seems. All the for my eyes as I enjoy the added realism it brings. The amber on this car really look at full speed too.

the rear is smaller, they can be easily seen at night.

On to the and tires. It seems it has the usual SCX compound on the tires and overall seemed very round and Let me put to rest the one question I have over and over about car: YES These wheels are . The 1:1 car says it all.

Box Stock Testing

Artin Track- 12 Volt DC Aftermarket – 25 OHM PARMA Econo

The first laps with car told me we had one heck of a slot car Very quick although the for me was a little too much. 4.2 seconds was the which is very respectable. It was not the that impressed me as much as the

Very crisp braking and and I had a great control in and out of the tighter

The only thing I felt be improved is the tire compound. it works well enough, the low of the tire makes things a slippery because there is not cushion to them. Then this could be a good to some drivers.

Instead of over when I pushed it too the car just broke loose in the and slid out.

However this is without and or wheel sanding. 100 percent out of the box All in all a very impressive running and most of you should be pleased.

The Hood

Once the 3 screws removed that hold the to the chassis we get a look inside. The RX 42B motor is equipped with a 9 pinion and 27 tooth crown I have to say the gear mesh was than usual and with break-in we should see a very smooth operator.

NOTE: I was that some models may not this 42B motor. If you get a car that has the you can contact Bryan through SCX and he will replace the motor of charge.

Fair enough I Although mine did come the correct motor, for SCX to inform me of says a lot about their Small things like make a big difference to me in the long

We also see the standard motor pod but what I liked was the limited of travel. Sometimes this pod can too much and cause tire to rub, but not here. Since it is, I do not on altering it with tape or I will however solder our tabs in place as a preventive

As I state in all of my SCX reviews, you do not have to do Simply making sure the are clean and properly adjusted keep you on the road.

Wheels and need the standard small of work. Remove the tires and the hub centers and edges to remove any molding. Then install the and sand them until you a good, even contact

Oil each end of the motor and a little on the bushings.

The front wheels could use a as well. Although they the independent front design, car is not designed for digital conversion. The of free-play here is minimal and suffice most racers.

A drop of oil on the outside is all I did and it helped things down even

Routed Track Testing

MDF Wood Track – Latex Paint Surface Copper Tape/Non-Magnetic

12 Volt DC Power – 25 OHM PARMA Controllers

When it comes to you and wood track enthusiasts is plenty to be happy about. The runs fairly well with tires being the change I see in the future. This on your track surface of so choose the tire you prefer.

I enjoyed here is the smooth For a smaller model it still has balance in the corners. Some adjustments using some here and there will be for most.

All in all though a very simple that has a lot of potential.


Although this review seem a little short, is a good reason. There is not that much to do here. It well right out of the box and only some light tuning for our track.

With a price tag under the $50.00 mark makes it even easier to it a try. I think if you do, you will be you did. With Christmas around the corner, this car would make a great stuffer for the racers in your
