I wonder who makes the decision to cancel this stuff, and when it is made. I also wonder what the criteria is? Just as a layman as far as 1/64, looking through that list, I don't see a whole lot of cars it makes sense to cancel.
Maybe the Petty and the Biffle, but that's about it and they don't have any of those cars out period yet, so how do they know if they will sell or not? Rediculous.

Yeah I also wonder how they decide because it doesn't seem to be based on driver popularity or success. Hell there's a Truex car on the list and he's been running really well as of late. Kahne hasn't been running too well this year but he is a very popular driver so it doesn't make sense to me why they'd cancel one of his.

i could understand cancelling one or 2 of one scheme but all of one scheme? i figured they would for sure make the fantastic 4 car at least in 1:24

I know I wanted the Petty COT, hopefully WC will do one in the hood series later.
I hope they dont cancel the Labonte Spider Man car later.
The Kahne car doesnt make sense either.

Sad to hear more cancellations. If Nascar wants to have all of these special cars, then the Diecast companies should be required to make the schemes. It all should go hand in hand, MA or whoever wants the license to make certain drivers cars, then they should be required to make all of the schemes for that driver!!!

Meanwhile they have just released the Hero cars. The same cars they released weeks ago as PitStop, Drivers Select, and RCCA Elite cars.

If you do not like what they are doing, go to their website and email them.
Tired of the same schemes getting released 10 times a year, while your favorites are cancelled?
Do something about it. Bitching and moaning about it here will not help change anything. JMO

Well I don't even think emailing them will do anything to be honest. Like I have been told on here many times, they will make what sells and what they know will sell, and these Amercian Heros cars will sell, and one or two people sending them emails wanting a certain car made will not change their mind. I don't like to admit it but thats how it is.

that is just it, most of us have e-mailed them and pleaded our cases about this issue and it hasn't helped one bit.

Because then you have to buy the way more expensive 1/24 scale if you want that scheme.
Assholes! :angry:

Probably will not change a thing, you are right, but at least the people making the decsions might hear your concerns. If nothing else it is a constructive release for the frustration we all feel with this crap.

It is like I tell my boy, do not complain simply for the sake of complaining, it changes nothing except the way other people see you. If you do not like something, then change it, or at least try to change it. If you cannot, and that is just the way things are with that particular situation, accept it and quit complaining, or walk away and focus your energy elsewhere.

It seems that sometimes they do listen. If you remember, a year or so ago, we weren't seeing any WC product on the self, just on Ebay being sold by guys like Mottobucky and RandyReay. Now we're finding them just as fast as they hit Ebay (and in some cases even faster). Who says that a few phone calls and e-mails don't get things changed? I would like to think that they do listen and take our complaints and suggestions seriously. If you don't call or e-mail (and be persistent), then they won't know there is a problem.

spools right. if you want to change the way they operate or cancel cars...........you all need to get together and call. and cal alot. and ask for managers, not operators traking orders. write the head of M.A., or call her. the sqeaky wheel gets the grease.
