    Is it just me or does this look strange to you guys also? Refering to the #18 in relation to the base, the bottom left of the number along with other parts should line up with the stripe. There also is the jack arrow tape, or whatever you call it.

    Got this in the mail today. It's a 2005 Rusty Wallace Miller Genuine Draft Black Pearl Edition, 1 of 720. Looks very cool, and for $40 it's great. I ordered a 2002 Bill Elliott Dodge Viper car, 2003 Dale Jr. Budweiser, and a 2012 Tony Stewart Mobil 1 that are on the way.

    The 18 on the diecast is skewed slightly incorrect and the number isn't in the right place. You are correct, it does look strange.

    Looks like the jack bolt is farther forward on the die-cast. Look at in relation to the white stripe and the window

    They move the jack marker because of where the opening is on the diecast. Would look weird to have the opening in one spot and marker in another

    For those interested, Lionel Racing put out this video that previews the prototype diecast schemes for next year (Chase Elliott, Austin Dillon, and Aric Almirola) along with other topics:

    So random question for those of you who have ordered (assuming pre-ordered) a race-win diecast, but about how long is the typical time between placing the order and it shipping?

    What race win are you asking about? I ordered both Jeff Gordon Martinsville Win and Homestead Race Version the day/day after the actual race. Got the Martinsville one in March and the Homestead one in April or May I can't remember. So a couple months if the race was recent.

    3 to 6 months depending on the priorities of lionel. ordered JJs Homestead win, should come in around April based on past trends. Like David i ordered Jeffs cars from Homestead and Martinsville. which came much faster than his 2012 Homestead which didnt come out until almost a year later. My Harvick and Kyle Busch Homestead cars came out around 6 months after the race

    Thanks @David24 and @Alan Harkleroad. Yeah I got Jimmie's Homestead win, but it's the first race-win car that I've ever bought. I figured it would be quite a while.

    I bought that as well... so far I've spent way too much, and there's still the rest of today and tomorrow left.

    I picked up Tony Stewart's Code 3 car from 2014 with Liquid Color and Dinger's Bush's car from 2014 with an autograph for under $30. I love sales!

    I've only bought one die-casts during the sales which was Kyle's win car from Texas earlier this year. I only really collect Kyle / Carl wins alongside all of their 1:64ths so wasn't anything I really had to have.

    I picked up his Homestead Color Chrome Elite win to go with the Liquid Color version I had. Love that green on it.

    Free shipping codes FTW.

    $202 invested in the sale so far. Not a dollar of that is shipping. I think I haave 14 or 15 cars ordered.
