Lionel Racing has
reconfigured all of its 1:24 scale NASCAR Cup Series die-cast to respond to
what the market is telling us and to continue to drive the business forward.
Beginning now, all 2018
1:24-scale NASCAR Cup Series die-cast will be available to customers in two
1. The Action Racing Collectables (ARC) Collector Model
- this model will feature an opening hood, a closed trunk, a die-cast
body and a plastic chassis. This model will feature the same engine detail as
our current ARC HOTO model, poseable wheels, opening roof flaps and painted
chassis details. More details about the features of this die-cast are on the
attached PDFs. The MSRP for this model is $54.99.
2. The RCCA ELITE Model – this model features an
opening hood and trunk, opening roof flaps, a fully die-cast body and chassis,
poseable wheels, upgraded engine detail, and a detailed chassis. More details
about this model are on the attached documents. The MSRP for this model is
Also, for the first time,
we are making standard finish RCCA ELITE die-cast available to all customers. Distributors will be able to sell ELITE
die-cast to their dealers. Going forward, each NASCAR Cup Series sales sheet
you see will also include a 1:24 ELITE (HOTO) standard finish die-cast in
addition to the 1:24 ARC Collector and 1:64 ARC cars.
Because of the way we are
reconfiguring the tooling, we will also now be able to lower the minimum
quantity needed to produce 1:24 NASCAR Cup die-cast from 700 pieces down to 500
pieces. This means that in 2018, more of the paint schemes that customers want
will be made, giving us all the ability to meet the demands of NASCAR fans.
The tooling and minimums (500
pieces) for 1:24 XFINITY cars and 1:24 Trucks have not changed, neither has
tooling for 1:64 ARC cars.
