Ball bearings and balldiff are included, also a body and a 130 motor. Most of slotcar bodys will fit. You can drive with 4 or 5 cells - and - it's faster than a Mini-Z !!

Hi,

on a speed checker the car was 36 km/h (23 mph) fast (out of the box).
May be you could buy it at intrepidrc.com if it's available.

Klaus,

Is there any way to see this car next to a different car for size comparisons?

That looks very nice.....I sent you an email.

Welcome to TinyRc United_RC
Good to see you looking beyond 1/18th scale.
Those WWS 1/32's are wicked. Let us know the outcome

Hi,

i'll post a picture of the WWS and a Mini-Z next week, so that you can see the different size.

At the beginning, the WWS 1/32 will be available with four different Revell-bodies ( Mercedes CLK DTM Vodafone, Mercedes CLK DTM AMG and 2 Opel Astra DTM)
But it should be no problem to use normal slotcar bodies.
Electronics you need is nearly the same as you use in a 1/24.
Only the servo should be a little bit smaller.

Since two days i have my car (still a prototype). I'll test the car next week and let you know about the result.

(sorry for my bumpy english)

Hi URC,

great joke ;-))
The Mini-Z is 1/28, the WWS 1/32, so the WWS is on the right side of both pictures.

maybe they will have a carbon fiber upgrade kit to get rid of that plasticy stuff.

BTW They should make an RTR

hi klaus

what type of electronics do you use with it? (i.e. servo's, esc, receiver) how much does it cost to put it all together? how much shipping will it cost to the philippines? can you post a chassis pic?
how does it compare to the crt 1/32?

thanks for any info.

best regards and hope to hear from you soon

I was thinkin the same thing...

I'd like to have one of those, but want to be sure of the size first... How many scales does WWS make?

And like asked before, how does it compare to the CRT.

Hi,

the 1/32 is a new size. 1/24 is about 10 years old.
From WWS you can have cars in 1/5, 1/6, 1/18, 1/10, 1/24 and 1/32.

And 1/20! I'm fairly certain the WWS F1 I have sitting here is 1/20, not 1/24 or 1/18. No?

WWS is a very well known and respected name in the European RC scene -- I'm sure this car is great. Its really unfortunate more people in the US haven't gotten to see (or get beaten by) one. My Pro and F1 are extremely well designed cars. The construction is top notch. Assuming the 1/32 ever makes it stateside, I will be getting one. (and if they don't, I'll find a way...)

If the cost of the pro relative to other high end 1/24 cars is any indication, the price will be less than that of the CRT. WWS seems to eschew some of the "fancy" materials that everyone thinks they need, for thin, yet rigid, fiberglass. I'm sure that saves some $$ in materials. The weight difference between the 'glass and graphite would be negligible. Klaus, do you guys in Germany have access to carbon fiber parts? Any opinions from you (or Wilfred) regarding fiberglass v. cf, and why WWS seems to be fiberglass only?

Hi avenan,

you're right, i've forgotten the formula, which is 1/20, also the offroad buggy. The material of the 1/32 is the same as the 1/24 or the 1/20 formula, but it's not black painted.
The philosphy of Wilfried is to build a car that's fast out of the box, so that no tuning parts are necessary. Therefore WWS did not offer any tuning parts.
Normally tuning parts will lead to a higher weight. His cars are designed to win races, not to win beauty contests.

The car is available now for about 100 Euro, ball bearings, ball diff and Revell body included.

Here are two pics from the car including IWaver electronics:

Hi Herman,

the car is available now, but not as RTR. You can use small electronic components. I use 40 MHz components (Schulze 440 receiver, Robitronic Microspeed, Micro Servo).
In the picture you can see is an IWAVER board, which is not available from WWS.
You can use paypal for payment. Sipping costs are different for some countries. If you want one (without electronics), you can send me an email with your address. I'll send you a reply with total cost including shipping costs.
You can also order directly from WWS (wws.racing@web.de)

WWS is still working on a solution of a RTR, but i've no idea, how long this will take.

Klaus,

Are these still available? I can't find them on the WWS site.
