Auto World 4Gear Release 18 Top Fuel Dragsters

Round 2 has posted their December Product Spotlight which gives us the first look at the new Top Fuel Dragster slot cars in Release 18. This release will have 3 new slot cars, 2 of the cars are repeat sponsors and drivers. We have seen previous versions of Matco Tools – Antron Brown and US Army – Tony Schumacher cars before. The third dragster will be SealMaster – J.R. Todd.

As you can see in the photos below pulled from the video, the packaging for the top fuel dragsters has been updated. Plastic blister packs will replace the previous boxes. Hopefully they have an easy open ability that might allow them to be reused. If not I am going to miss the boxes for the purpose of storage, display, and re-packing for trade or sale on Ebay.

12/26/16 Update – I have posted official photos from the Auto World website for these three Top Fuel Dragster slot cars.
