Tracksurgeon
Import compact cars and sedans (like JDM)

Hello Tracksurgen:  Could you please post a pic ( close up ) of the starting gate.  Looking for width and the drop polls.  Thx   Voxxer

Tracksurgeon
The track is the same C4 track.

The Tuner vs. Muscle race is no longer a WTA tournament. If anyone is also interested in C4's Treasure Hunt race be sure to send in a carded Treasure Hunt and $1 entry fee.

Car mailed today

1 tuner, a Mitsubishi Evolution, was sent in to race. The muscle car it will race against will most likely be a stock vehicle. I'll film the race tomorrow.

Also, would you like the car to be raced in Run Whatcha' Brung?

Sure. 

My mother has become crippled whereas I'm not able to go to the C4 meeting. However, I do have a track that's about as tall and as long as the C4 track which uses standard HW track but has no starting and finish gates.

The race has been postponed to the next C4 meeting in May to allow time for other entries as there is currently only one Tuner entry. Would anyone like to enter a muscle car for this race?

Would anyone else like to enter this race? More entries = more prizes.

Yes I will enter a tuner and Muscle car. What date do you need them by? 

WOO Racing!

Tracksurgeon
When it's mailed be sure it arrives before May 6.

I have a "tuner" that I'll try to get ready for this race.

My Flying Javelin is in the mail......

Tracksurgeon
Nice one!

Sorry, won't be able to get my entry done in time. I used the metal body from a mainline and a metal base from the "color changers".

Killer paint!

I missed the mail in deadline. Sorry.

The Flying Javelin has arrived in the mail. It will be racing against Voxxer01's Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

Results ??

I'll post the video results once it gets uploaded on YouTube.

Might I make a suggestion ??  I would post the results from your last race, before posting a new one.  Just a thought. 

Here is the official results. The track's start and finish started bugging in the middle.

are you stepping on the pedal? ... i spliced a pushbutton switch in and ran it with my thumb...
fordman
maybe use a phone cable so you need not cut your pedal wires...
Tracksurgeon
I used the pedal but it was very worn out.

Voxxer01 has won the Tuners and Muscles race with his Mitsubishi Evolution. Congratulations!
