If it comes together I think this race would be in February 2017. I’d like try and pin down the rules around this race. If there is interest, I'll start another thread.  Here are my initial thoughts. I would like to see a race of the late 70’s-early 90’s cars. They still produce these wheels today, but let’s race some vintage cars here!!! These wheels “in my opinion” were built for looks over speed. Dig through your collection, or dig one up on ebay and see if you can coax some speed out of a vintage car. You’ll have two shots to win, and two tracks to compete on. The first race would be for the stock,un-drilled vintage Blackwall car. Second race is for you Modified racers, take your vintage Blackwall car and upgrade the wheels/alxes

fordman
i gut sum blackwalls, hmmmm sum biggunz

Been awhile since I've raced here, count me in.

Sounds cool!

This might get enough interest to form into a race. Thanks guys.

Rules ok? any thoughts?

Rules look good to me, TE. When you start up the official thread, be sure to use the template, that way it automatically gets put on the calander of coming events...at least, it should :)

I might try to get in on this, but I don't know if I have many good ones to offer ... maybe one of the possibly-decent ones wouldn't be too heavy (assuming it's old enough).

Voxxer Racing is interested   

so... sounds like 6-7 racers so far... Lets make it 10 and I'll start an official race thread.


Digging through my collection... I think I found the car I'll use for the 2nd race "Modified". The 442 was a childhood favorite, and 43g to start

Still looking for a fast "stock" Blackwall

I might have to put a Chevy engine in it to get some more speed out of it :)

Traction-Event
Dig that Bronco... Heavy? Almost 60g?
72_Chevy_C10
