I'm in! 

Just an observation, with the rule stating other castings may be approved it looks like we should wait to see what the other possibilities are before building a car(s).

Hi All:

First, a typo was made.... it should be " 3 weeks " before race.

Second, Ron and I made this rule " Other castings must be approved at least 3 weeks prior to the race." incase we missed any cars that would fit into the PS/PM theme.  We wanted to make it so that no one, would not race a car, because it was not allowed.  Being our " first " race, since the race committee was formed, I am sure we will have a learning curve.   

Thanks for your understanding !!

Jon and Ron 

Hey Guys,

Good luck with the Mod races...I hope they keep going well!

I do have one question...why 4.5"? I mean, if you are going to the trouble of limiting the castings that can be used, are you saying that it is okay to alter the length of the casting? Or, could you run a super long chassis? Either way, a 4.5" '41 Willys is going to look pretty goofy...and it's not going to look like a Pro Mod/Pro Stock.

I'll probably just build an S10, myself, but I was just curious about the rule.

Thanks!

The " spirit " of the 4.5 inch length, was to cover all, but not limited to Muscle Machines, with wheelie bars.  

To clarify the rule:  all ps/ pm cars must not exceed a length of 4.5 inches with wheelie bars extended.    All cars must use stock chassis.    No stretching of chassis is allowed.   Wheelie bars are not required.  Example is Nitro Door Slammer - wheelie bar maybe removed, extended or kept in place under car.

Thanks for the clarification :)

How about the Shelby GT350R?

Tracksurgeon can you post a picture of the car you want to put in this race. 

Here's my recommendations:

2011 Custom Camaro:

76 Greenwood Corvette:

Maybe we'll see some of the new electronic injection cars with no hoodscoops ;)

Tracksurgeon sorry those 3 wouldn't qualify.

Is this the 63 Corvette allowed for this race?

Here's a pic of a Pro Stock car for reference. Pro Mod cars are fairly similar.


Thank you Econocarl for posting!

Tracksurgeon not that one. That vette can definitely run in our 1/4 Mile Monsters Modified Race or our GM Modified Race which is in July. Google Hot Wheels Pro Stock or Pro Mod cars.

One of my works in progress!

Make sure to get your Pro Stock and Pro Mods done and mailed out soon.

Is the Scorch Torch allowed for this race?

Tracksurgeon can you post a picture of it.

Tracksurgeon sorry unfortunately that would not classify as either a Pro Stock or Pro Mod car.

Who is racing in our Pro Stock/Pro Mod Shootout? Time is running out and I just wanted to have an idea how many cars we are looking at. Thank you!
