4Gear Release 3 NHRA Auto World Slot Cars

The 4Gear Release 3 was the first release of licensed NHRA Funny Cars and Pro Stocks based on my research. I found a PDF “Sell Sheet” for this release listing all eight cars. There are six NHRA Funny Cars and 2 NHRA Pro Stocks in this release. The sell sheet is┬ádated January 27th, 2011.

Surprisingly this sell sheet listed one of the Funny Cars as being the Canidae Funny Car with driver Paul Lee. The Canidae car was not one of the five cars featured on the sell sheet though. I have not been able to find any images of an Auto World Canidae slot car so I assume it was scrapped and the Auto Club Funny Car of Robert Hight was added to the set. Also, you will notice that the Tony Pedregon Funny Car shown on sell sheet ended up being a Pro Stock instead. One last observation I have made is on the two Castrol sponsored Funny Cars of John Force and Ashley Force Hood you do not see the Simpson Decal on the side right before the window starts, but on the actual cars there is a Simpson decal. You will see this for the John Force Racing Dragstrip set as well. Fine print does state “Design and vehicles subject to change.”

Check out the sell sheet below, as well as the group and individual images of the actual slot cars in the 4Gear Release 3.
