What's the problem with the NASCAR.com Store, I ordered the Diecast imediately after the race, and have yet to receive it. I've called them twice since then. All they tell me is it's on back order.
A 4-6 week delivery time is acceptable. Not 4-6 months. Anyone know a way to get them of their butts. I currently have at least one of every car Tony has driven. I want the latest. His win in Homestead. :(

it takes at least 22-26 weeks before the cars are shipped, and that goes for "ALL" diecast, you have to keep in mind, the mnfgr is making a new car every week for the race winner along with special paint schemes, as well as cars for 2012 season, nascar.com has no control of when the cars are released, that is the mnfgrs control.

...yep, as MJ said...usually 5-6 months. I've got all 5 Raced Win's on pre-order, can't wait 'til they come in.(sarcasm) Still have the El Monterey car out there too... ####, the Prelude car from last year just came in, though that's a different company.

few weeks back i watched this video on you tube on how this Chinese company makes a f-1 car, and they did a lot of hand painting and tedious work, so i can see how a nascar can take that long to make, lets just say they make 1000 race wins, thats 36,000, not to mention, 25 plus race teams for the regular schemes, then you have special paint, so they probably crank out 75-100 thou cars each year.

I made a stop at the local NASCAR store and made a few purchases. I got........

A 1/24th scale 2011 #83 Brian Vickers Red Bull Toyota
A 1/24th scale 2011 #00 David Ruitimann Aarons Dream Machine
A 1/24th scale 2011 #22 Kurt Busch Shell Penzoil Dodge
A 1/24th scale 2011 #39 Ryan Newman Bass Pro Shops/ NRA Chevrolet
and...
A 1/24th scale 2011 #39 Ryan Newman ARMY Birthday/ Bud Moore Tribute Chevrolet.


It was one of those good news, bad news, really bad news deals. The good news was all five cars were dirt cheap, the bad news is all five cars were dirt cheap because my local NASCAR store is closing it's doors. The economy and the rising cost of everything has killed their buisness. The super bad news is unless I can find away to get my own seperate bank acount or find sellers on ebay that take money orders, these could very well be the last diecasts i purchase. oh well Maybe I'll be able to save some money now ha ha. Anyway I will post pics of these cars when I get back from the DAYTONA 500!!!!

...contact the seller and ask, some still do take money orders. I just have my CC linked to it, I dunno' if they still do that? I did like 4-5 years ago and they extended a $10,000 amount to use before I'll have to "verify" the account. I've only used like $2,000 so far...so, at this rate, I figure I have about 16-20 more years before I have to verify the account. :mrgreen: :lol:

I think some sellers let you use a CC through Pay Pal without having to have a Pay Pal account...like an "individual purchase" deal, but I'm not sure how that works?

I wonder if the Raced Win diecasts for the RP tracks will have different back end? Probably not, but I think they look cool...I'd display mine backwards... ;) :lol:
