Ok guys. Who didn’t tell me about a metal base Javelin that needs weight shaved to compete? I’m glad I went back for one.
Yeah it metal/metal and a little bigger than the usual Jav casting
Yep, I was planning on installing the FTE package off a Jav FTE and the CC Jav has a wider chassis.
...and it weighs in at 51g stock...not 60g
i've one of those -mine is 51.2 g out of the pack. found it at the supermarket for $1. it's a beast. needs better wheels but for now it's in my collection until i happen upon another one for modding.
Ralph's -fresh food, low prices, and $1 cars! I think these employees aren't car hunters and just fill the pegs with whatever is in the case. Also, since Ralph's is a Kroger store and Kroger has distribution rights with Mattel, you can find some neat things sometimes.
I would really like metal base cars again. the wheels I can deal with, but that hefty metal base is more stable and puts weight low (imo)
no, what i meant by "dealing with them" is that i'd get rid of them. rubber tires suck for speed. i actually raced this car last weekend and it's slow. i have lazy rubber tired johnny's that are quicker then this thing.
put hard wheels and tuned axles on it and it would do much better.
