    Carrera have the exclusive rights to produce Ferrari slot cars for the next 3 years, any other slot car manufacturers having Ferrari in their 2010 line up must produce & release them by June 30th, 2010.

    (I wonder if this covers older Ferraris. such as P4s, 312s, that Racer produces. I hope not, the Racer models are incredible collector models, Carrera is fine for slot car racing, but not the same level of detailing as Racer)

    I have a LeMans 330P4 Carrera/Exclusiv I bought back in '05 @ FAO Schwarz in NYC.
    Real nice,I don't think it's a slot car though @ 7 1/2" long.

    Yes, Sindo, Carrera does make a few 1/24 slot cars in addition to their 1/32s. One of those was the P4. Their track is made for both 1/32 and 1/24, that's why I always recommend Carrera track for slot cars.

    If you liked that model, you should see the Racer Ferraris. At $250 there is a fear of actually racing them on a slot track.

    This is depressing as Fly has always produced a great line such as all the 512 longtails. Bob
