Ive always wanted to see how well big and heavy trucks do on the track now obviously they don't really fit on road courses but since my track basically doesn't have a start gate meaning the trucks just have to fit on the track. i won't be using the launcher so the extra weight will count, if you do not want to make a truck but still want to participate message me and we can work something out

  • Stock and modified entries allowed
  • 600g maximum weight
  • it doesn't matter the length it just has to fit on the hot wheels orange track

Race format and scoring

This will be a single-elimination tournament. A car will move on in the bracket only when it wins two races in a row. Cars will alternate lanes between each race.

The car that wins the final race will be declared the winner. Race host has final decision in all races.

Bracket seeding will be random.

Penalties/DNF

Cars are given a grace of 1g over the stated weight limit to account for variance in scales.

If a car fails to meet any of the restrictions listed above, the car will not qualify for victory. Offending cars will still race. Finish position and any prize will go to the runner-up in the case of the penalty car winning.

Cars that fail to run or fit on the track, or that happen to break during racing, will forfeit their matches. Cars that arrive broken will attempt to be minimally repaired before the racing begins. Cars that break during racing will not be repaired or replaced.

Do SUVs, vans and buses qualify or is it trucks only?


  • Honestly I’m fine with literally anything as long as it’s not like a Mini Cooper or vw Beatle I just kinda said trucks because it was the first thing that came to mind — Itsdiegobytheway
  • Thanks for the clarification — MH805

Ok so I'm thinking of recording the video on the 4th of July in the afternoon so you can here some fire works in the background do you guys think that would be interesting?
