Corvette 1:32 Scale

Above – Fly Corvette C5-R in 5 Versions – these are the cars that got me back into slot racing – 36 years later!

Above – Fly C5-R – Modification of the #2 car shown in the top photo. It is an interpretation of the Atlanta 2001 salute to some of the heroes of 9-11-01, done before Fly released the Petit LeMans version.

Some of the cars have lights. The light circuit includes a capacitor to allow the lights to stay on a few seconds after the power is off:
