I would buy one if it was under $50.00.
A while back (I'm talking maybe 2 years) there was a thread on the Planet of Speed BBS regarding this. I posted a little story about a visit I took to Buzz-A-Rama, which is a commercial track in Brooklyn, NY that's been around since the 60's. I mentioned that it was the place that a kid named Tony Porcelli beat a bunch of then-new TycoPros with a souped-up AFX, and Aurora hired him on to help build a supercar which became the Super II. (This is all straight out of Greenberg's Guide to Aurora Slot Cars, if anyone happens to have it.) What I found out in response to the thread was that the Super II in fact DID deviate from Mr. Porcelli's plans/ideas to make it easier to mass produce, and the final product suffered greatly. In fact, he actually responded through another bulletin board member to point out that his original car was not in fact a souped-up AFX, but rather a souped-up Tjet. Today he manufactures lightning-fast HO scale magnet cars under the Slottech name.AfxToo said:The brains behind the Aurora Super II are still around. From what I've read and heard, the Super II that Aurora released was far different than what its creators envisioned. Much was lost during the move to manufacturing. I would be far more interested if JL released the Super II as it was intended than what it ended up as after being run through one too many committees.
