The Slider appears to be Phil Riehlman's version of a 'Tooned' drift car (possibly resembling a Nissan Skyline GT-R 32). It was #7 of 10 vehicles in the Torpedoes series. The Torpedo style was a new cartoon style introduced in 2005 and depicts a car in a skinny, Torpedo-like shape with outboard wheels. These unique vehicles should perform well on track sets but the exposed wheels make them more susceptible to bending axles. They're probably better suited for gravity-driven tracks than Wall Tracks or tracks with a Booster. Re-releases of Torpedoes vehicles have been somewhat limited, if existent at all.
The Slider has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
