When: Saturday, November 7, 2015

I took a little poll a while ago, and quite a few people wanted a VW Beetle race. So, here it is! There are quite a few Beetle castings, so it should make for a fun race. I would like to invite anyone that either has or is building an Open Track, to take a shot at hosting a heat! The idea of these Beetles tumbling down an Open Track is kinda fun! So, hopefully, they will race on both Straight Drag-style tracks and Open track!

Rules & Restrictions

  • Weight 57 grams
  • Size restrictions - The usual sizes - 1.3" high, 3.5" wide and orange track wide
  • Cars per entrant/household - 2 cars per entrant max
  • Brand, body style, year, make/model - VW Beeltles only
  • Wheel limitations, requirements - FTE allowed
  • Must be drilled rivets

Would a Baja Bug qualify?

72_Chevy_C10
Yes, Indeed!

Count me in on this one, I'll be sending in two cars (my wife found out about this one and suddenly she thinks my hot wheels obsession is ok.) 

72_Chevy_C10
I'm glad that she approves! :)
JDC442
My wife has a nice little collection of beetle and baja bugs

Just stirring the pot on this one...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20150914_104931_zpsomfxukw9.jpg

This will be getting some new sneakers soon

You would not believe the amount of Dremel work to get these wheels to fit...

http://i1070.photobucket.com/albums/u495/Squiggy799/IMG_0188.jpg

72_Chevy_C10
But, well worth the effort! :)
CrzyTrkrDude
yep! Looks Good!!
JohnK
Is that blood underneath it?

Bug II in the shop... V8 Pipes! Why not. Need a set of wheels, but the body is now sized and ready. 

http://i1070.photobucket.com/albums/u495/Squiggy799/IMG_0190.jpg

72_Chevy_C10
Looking good, TE!

Cool, here we go!

I'm still looking for some more hosts on this one. As I said in the first post, if anyone has an open track that they would like to run these guys, let me know! I think it would be cool to see these on an open track


Traction-Event
Open track! yikes short wheelbase spell disaster... I like it!

I'm not sure where I'm going with this one, but, it should be fun...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20150917_093650_zpso1bzik5m.jpg

Metal chassis and body...I like it!

Traction-Event
I have another version of this same car with an opening engine cover... good start C10
72_Chevy_C10
I might pick up a Herbie, for car #2 :)

Not sure if this one is a racer... but the Yoda Star Wars car engine has found a home...

http://i1070.photobucket.com/albums/u495/Squiggy799/IMG_0193.jpg

http://i1070.photobucket.com/albums/u495/Squiggy799/IMG_0194.jpg

72_Chevy_C10
That is awesome! It's going to hit the transition and pull the front wheels with that engine hanging back there!

Okay, Guys, I just pulled the trigger on some Fat Track (the 'Big O' layout)! So, I will be running these Beetles on an open track for one of my races...should be good fun!

So, be sure to build your cars with this in mind...there might be a little beating and banging going on!

Traction-Event
oh Boy!... too late my rides are built... bring on the chaos
72_Chevy_C10
Probably set it up with 2 180 degree turns...see how much time I have to tinker with it before race time!

Okay, I'm back in business...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20150924_073258_zpsncqmy0j3.jpg

For a few races anyway!

Traction-Event
Ha... you keep finding them... atta boy!

Actual test video of one of the cars I'm building...

https://youtu.be/Huh9hirsSv4

CrzyTrkrDude
CLASSIC! just imagine how it must have tore up the other drivers to let a bug pass. even if just for a movie! lol

I'm kinda liking these little guys...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20150930_091106_zpsiqrzerhg.jpg

Might be tricky, making them go fast!

Metal chassis and body...fun, fun...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20150930_093306_zpsunumovfr.jpg

redlinederby
Love that car. Just looks fast, even stock. Can't wait to see how you improve it
72_Chevy_C10
It's probably just going to be a little weight and some FTE's...I like the 'Herbie' look!
Traction-Event
Go Herbie go!

Got my first FTE I'm going to use it for a mod in the bug out beetle bash race festival next month!

72_Chevy_C10
Cool! Glad to have you aboard!

Don't quote me on it...but I'm gonna try to get something built for this. Prepare to have a Herbie Face-Off!

Traction-Event
darn it... where is the quote button... :)
72_Chevy_C10
Okay...I'll be working on my 'Herbie' pretty soon! I'll be ready!

Hi Guys!

I'm just bumping this one to the top! We are 4 weeks away from the start of this one, and I'm still looking for some hosts! TE, would you like to run them? 

Who is building cars for this one? I'll be working on my 'Herbie' car this weekend!

Eastbound357
I'm building two for this one got my first FTE the other day so I'm excited to see how those will run.
Traction-Event
Yes I can host....what date?

Herbie meets his donor front wheels ('69 GTO fte)...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20151010_202148_zpskgnnv2xk.jpg

I glued the wheels in a little differently this time, gluing one axle at a time. I had to narrow the chassis a little bit to get clearance for the front wheels...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20151010_205602_zpsgt8vbdos.jpg

I apply the JB Quick with a toothpick  (and I mix it up on old HW blister backs...we all have lots of those!)...as always, I like to put a little extra JB Quick on...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20151010_205622_zpsnz4vcd2g.jpg

The rear axle is from my 'go to' car, a Chrysler 300...and it is actually a little bit wider than I would like, but I think it will work...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20151010_210042_zpssdl2qaae.jpg

I kinda like the way Herbie looks with the FTE's...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20151010_210626_zpstkobri6z.jpg

But, he is a little light (can be 57 grams), I'll work on weighting him up some time today...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20151010_210658_zpslushvb1c.jpg

I was just up at my Mom's, and look what I found...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20151011_151442_zps6qdapa58.jpg

My old Matchbox 'Ladybug' car...I think she might need a new lease on life..

Traction-Event
Sweet bug
redlinederby
Wheels + weight and you're set.
72_Chevy_C10
I was looking at it...I think I know what I'll do with it! :)

That is a 50 caliber (half inch) lead ball on the scale, next to Herbie...and it makes him just a little heavy...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20151011_185639_zpsfmspjbug.jpg

Adding weight to these cars requires  subtlety and finesse...and a hammer, a really big hammer...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20151011_185701_zpsud6pwofe.jpg

And, once the lead ball is no longer round...in any way...you can refine the shape and weight of the now block of lead with the above-mentioned hammer and a big, rusty, chisel (rust, not manditory)...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20151011_185846_zps3ihs04k6.jpg

And now, the lead sits nicely in the frame...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20151011_190006_zpsaghd59jb.jpg

It is a little light, but that gives us plenty of 'wiggle room' when gluing in the lead (don't forget the weight of the JB Weld)...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20151011_190030_zpskydha1yq.jpg

I ground off the pin on the chassis to move the weight back as much as I could...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20151011_190528_zpsvikvymbx.jpg

And, I had to remove quite a bit of the interior for the weight to fit...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20151011_191457_zpsoxztwp0q.jpg

But, the body now fits nicely, with the lead is securely glued in place...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20151011_191523_zps03ymk1la.jpg

Hi Guys!

I just wanted to bump this one to the top. If I get a chance, I'll be working on my Matchbox Beetle this weekend. And, since we are 3 weeks out, if you are going to be racing, you should be getting your cars ready!

Who all is running in this one?

redlinederby
Still shooting for it but I'm cutting it close. 50/50 right now, hopefully...
cliffordshaw
I've got a modded matchbox volksdragon from a previous event that I'm going to "re-mod" using some of the speed secrets
cliffordshaw
That you and TE have been nice enough to share. We'll see if they can turn a dud into a stud.
72_Chevy_C10
Awesome...it's always fun to see what you come up with!

Hi, I am a newby, but I want to race in this event.  I am Strollers Nephew and he will help me some with my cars. I am 13 so he is only going to show me how to make a car.....but will make it.....Thank you..

CrzyTrkrDude
Cool name Mr Dragon Tooth Sir! Welcome! Enjoy! Spread the word!

Hey, 

Welcome aboard!  There's lots of info on here...plus, I'm sure your Unkle will get you pointed in the right direction!

I look forward to seeing your cars!

I could host the 21st or the 28th....maybe both.  I do have a straight track and a semi open track.  Let me know.......Stroller

I think the 28th is Thanksgiving, so I'll put you down for the 21st...thanks so much! You can run them on whatever type of track you want!

Stroller
Oh btw the state is Washington......
72_Chevy_C10
Thanjs...I coildn't remember :)

Update to the first post...Stroller will be hosting! And, unless somebody wants to host over the Thanksgiving holiday, the hosts and dates are now set!


My entry has become doubtful :( Lots of kid things going on lately that have limited time more than I expected. If I manage to throw something together, I'll send it, but no need to wait for my entry if the date gets close.

Having a little fun with the Lady Bug...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20151022_213738_zpsjteawooh.jpg

CrzyTrkrDude
nice new shoes for the Lil Lady!!

Hey Guys,

We are 2 weeks away from the start of the Beetle Bash race...I hope that everyone  will be wrapping up their cars and getting them sent in. 

The Beetles will be running on my scale quarter mile track first. And, since the Crew Chief race ends here next week, I might just throw together a Fall Nationals race, pitting the Bugs against the Trucks and the Hot Rods...might be fun!

So, get those Beetles ready to go! :)

I was gonna get in on this but life got away from me the past month and all next week is bathroom remodel.  So my lack of participation won't be because this wasn't a great idea.

CrzyTrkrDude
once that commode is off the floor. NOTHING is more important than finishing ...
CrzyTrkrDude
THAT REMODEL JOB!!! LOL

After a 3300+ mile 64 hour work week ( mon-sat night), I ended up at home last night for unexpected day off at home. Might be able to do a bug after all. 

See what happens....

72_Chevy_C10
Cool, I hope so!

There's a change in the first post...Traction Event will be hosting the first race. I'll add his address in a bit. Thanks for hosting, TE!

So, this little guy is happening today...

Sweet! They get sent to TE for the first heat...Good to have you racing with us!!
Opening race will be on the Low N Slow track... as seen in this test video vimeo.com/84916018
72_Chevy_C10
Cool, low and slow...have to be good "rollers" on that track!
CrzyTrkrDude
SMITTY oughta be HAPPY! '32 FORD! LOL
CrzyTrkrDude
( that track is cool, but scares the dump outta me
CrzyTrkrDude
my bugs are completely untested. haven't rolled more than a foot total.lol
Nightstalker
Like that low stuff. maybe lower the Jersey Shore Dragway down from 18" to 12" drop.

Here are the VDubs made by my nephew "Dragon Tooth" Gabe and me.

These are DTs cars....

I only did the drilling and handling the lead weights.....Not too bad for 13 yo...


72_Chevy_C10
Looking good, Stroller and Dragon Tooth!
CrzyTrkrDude
YEP! Looking good indeed!

stoller, the duece bug looks great, go dragon tooth go !
Stroller
In the mail tomorrow!!
Traction-Event
Agreed all good looking rides... Bringing the motor to the party
redlinederby
Pretty sweet. Wish I had discovered Hot Wheels modding when I was 13

OK, now that I built a couple of Bugs for this race, and they are at the PO getting mailed at this very moment ( Thank you Mrs TruckerWife). 

I wanted to show y'all what was to be my entry, but I just couldn't finish the build. It just took over my brain.... And said. NO! I WON'T DO IT!, sooooooo....

I gave in to it's stubbornness, and put some real riders on it...  Now she is sitting all pretty ladylike on the shelf. 

http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah305/CrzyTrkrDude/IMG_20151011_191710_zpsqevulkrl.jpg

And I am OK with that!

Traction-Event
Again...great wheel and color combo
CrzyTrkrDude
Thanks! I wanna find more of these old ( corgi?) casting. they are so crisp.
redlinederby
Looks sharp. Great purple.

CrzyTrkrDude
all sparkly! like mine? lol
72_Chevy_C10
I should glue glitter all over my next build, so you won't notice the graphite! :)
CrzyTrkrDude
lol

Was able to find 90 minutes to sit and just grind...so I did. Managed to cobble together a bug that will be shipping out next day or so. And it's sitting right at 57g so hopefully it will roll well. Goes good on my track in tests, pretty quiet, which is a good sign.

CrzyTrkrDude
COOL BUG
Traction-Event
Do I spy sanded wheels? Looking good, what chassis?
redlinederby
Chassis is some random pull-back car I found in my stash. Lighter metal.
redlinederby
Yeah, sanded wheels but I still need to find a better method

I've been thinking, since there is no race on Thanksgiving, I'll probably wrap up the series with a double header...one drag race and one open-track race!  These little guys on an open track would be fun!

the stroller and dragon tooth cars are on the way...

http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah305/CrzyTrkrDude/IMG_20150926_170033_zpsycovwzix.jpg


It's all in the lighting and camera angle. Lol

http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah305/CrzyTrkrDude/IMG_20151011_191710_zpsqevulkrl.jpg ( this one is closer to real life)

It's the testors purple that comes in the spray pack at Hobby Lobby. 

I'm really like Iikeing all these Beetles. I never realized how many castings there are. 

'Specially liking the MBX Baha Bug mods. They look much better altered without the big sand tires. 

NICE WORK EVERYONE!!!

I'm thinking that this going to be a really fun event...lots of different builds, some new faces in the mix! Yup, definitely going to be fun!

You guys can all thank Delta 6 for the suggestion to put this race together! And, just so you know, if anybody has an idea for a race (but doesn't really want to put it on themself), just shoot me a PM, and I'll try to make it work! Hey, you never know until you put it out there!

CrzyTrkrDude
THANKS DELTA 6!!!

When I run the bugs here, after I run the regular race.  I was thinking of running the cars as teams also, using my relay race track.  Not sure how to score that.  I will leave that to those that know how.  Tell me what you think.

CrzyTrkrDude
random draw for teams? put two of the same team number in a hat. matching #'s = a team???
72_Chevy_C10
I was thinking that a person's two cars would make a team, but random draw sounds interesting too.
CrzyTrkrDude
bummer that not everyone has 2 cars.unlesssss, as a separate race, those with 2 cars, race their teams
CrzyTrkrDude
in an entirely separate other race from the "Beetle Bash" race....

Sounds good to me, Stroller! I'll figure out the points, just be sure to run a 1st-2nd race and a 3rd-4th race...maybe both cars on the teams will get full points (5 for 1st, 4 for 2nd, etc)

Thanks for hosting, Stroller...it should be a fun series!

CrzyTrkrDude
this one is gonna be good! I'm glad I was able to build
CrzyTrkrDude
for this one. and 2 entries at that!! Exciting stuff !!
Stroller
I was thinking of pairing the 1st place car
Stroller
with the last place car. 2nd. place with the second to last
Stroller
and so forth.....Stroller.
CrzyTrkrDude
( random draw just seems easier and exciting. but, I do see the "fairness" of your idea

Whatever you decide to do is cool, Stroller...you race'em and I'll figure out the points! :)

Stroller and Dragon's Tooth... your bugs are in the house 

72_Chevy_C10
Mine should be there tomorrow :)

Cool TE.....

72_Chevy_C10
Cool, glad they got there :)

Hi Guys!

I'm just bumping this to the top. I hope that everyone that hasn't already sent their cars in, will wrap them up and get them sent out in time for this one. It promises to be a fun race! Lots of new faces...and cool builds!


My entry is in the mail and on the way to Michigan. Thanks to all the hosts in this series. This is the mod I have most confidence in...here's hoping.

Traction-Event
car is here and through tech...

There's going to be a nice turn-out for this race...can't wait to see the team pics! :)

Hey Guys,

Here's one of the prizes you be racing for...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20151101_183013_zpsvkbrep5d.jpg

If I can remember, I'll remold that yellow windshield and get a tinted one to match the black/black. 

Remember, get your cars sent in early this week at the very latest!!

I should have some rollers entered, I also can look into running an open track in addition to my drag track set up. I just bought some 10 foot plastic gutter sections ($3 each fyi @ Menards) that I think will work well.....(there goes the garage space).

spoiler alert, you can call mine Team Splatter

2seven

72_Chevy_C10
Awwsome! Sounds good!
CrzyTrkrDude
Splatter! lol nice!! even on a windshield, a bug is still out in front!!

I'm cracking up so much, watching all these open track races ya'll are running... PLEASE, I dang near beg you, if you are hosting in this series, and have the means to run an open track as well... PLEASE DO SO!!!  ( OK, I am begging now)

Oh man this stuff is funny!! 

Someone should send these videos to Conan or something!!!

Lol

Here ya go, CTD,

I might just have picked up a 2nd Big O fat track...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20151102_190325_zps5pcp8bpy.jpg

Let's see what kind of trouble we can get into with this :)

CrzyTrkrDude
lol! AWESOME!!

An early test...

https://youtu.be/wGa-OpAONh8

Still lots more to be added on...probably a 180 at the bottom of the hill...maybe a 90 after that. Have to see how it rolls :)

Traction-Event
I like where this is headed....
72_Chevy_C10
It will evolve over the next couple weeks...the fat track turns work really well

Cars from AZ on the way!!!

I'll watch for them.

Two bugs on the way from rally case.  Alas, my main project, a matchbox volksdragon, was a fail.  I am starting to believe that the amount of time spent prepping a mod is inversely proportional to its speed.  But maybe that's just for me!  I ran this one through TE's full speed shop check list and ended up with one really slow wheel, so I went with something new and something old.

72_Chevy_C10
Yup, I've spent hours on my slowest cars! :)
Traction-Event
um...sorry?... :)
Traction-Event
Your bugs are here .... Rally Case in the house

Hey could all the entrants please sign in ?  I'm just curious about who is running.  It seems like a lot.   Starting off with Stroller and Dragon Tooth. .............

I think that is everybody...good turnout!

Concerning the relay race. If the number of cars turns out to be an odd number ,which would be a problem for 2 player teams . My wife "The Famous Clayfeat", will enter a car for a one shot deal for this race only. Just to help out.  Okay?..... . ...Stroller.

Traction-Event
as of now... Air-cooled and RLD could team up... if they choose to?
Traction-Event
sounds like a neat event up there in WA Stroller!
72_Chevy_C10
That's cool, Stroller! I think it will come out even, but if it does't, that would be cool
redlinederby
I'm good for whatever. Do whatcha need to make things happy.

Being new to this I'm not sure how the races are run, but I'm good with teaming up with RLD if needed. 

Stroller
If the number of cars is an even number.
Stroller
then there is no need to have pre-chosen teams...

The team up would just be for Stroller's one race. He's got a pretty cool setup where one car races down and when it gets to the end, it sends off the second car back...so it's like a relay race. 

I think this will be the first time it's been used on here...so, it will be new to everyone!

If need be, we'll team up - that's fine. Like you said, new territory for all so we'll be guinea pigs.

Cool! Tracking says it's delivered.

Team shots... and car numbers...

Oh Man, I like this series already, just after seeing the team pics! Great job, Guys!
Eastbound357
Some good lookin competition out there!
CrzyTrkrDude
like the mirror image.lol. like they are visiting a prison, checking for contraband. lol COOL PHOTOS!!

Sure looks like a good field of cars.  When is the first race?

72_Chevy_C10
this weekend...I'm sure TE will have a video up Sunday some time
Traction-Event
I'll put all numbers in a hat and set a bracket drawing randomly. Then sit back and watch the results on video Sunday night.... if all goes
Traction-Event
according to plan

Great pics. Love that there is a limited spread of models...really should show off how different modding can make the difference. My car looks like a giant!

Love those VW Turbos. I think have one on the Fantasy hooks but need to find me a few more as backup. I really liked modding the Bugs. Lots of room for extras while not being a giant truck or van.

CrzyTrkrDude
I forget what my baha bug is sitting on. it was clear and red.Tooned. It's a weird one. lol
Traction-Event
Ferrari 360, yikes a Ferrari powered bug...LOOK OUT!

Well no other entries in the mail today... so the field is set. 

Here is the bracket, and first round match ups

72_Chevy_C10
I really need to start keeping track of how many times we've met in the first round, TE!
Traction-Event
I hear ya... random draw... we seen to be drawn together.
72_Chevy_C10
That's cool...that's why we run multiple races! I just think it's funny :)
Stroller
That's too bad. i'm waiting to meet one of you with a bug without FTE wheels...
Stroller
ARRRRGGGGHHH.................lol...Stroller
CrzyTrkrDude
Herbie the Love Bug vs Blurby the Slug Bug!!!

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!! 

LOT'S OF NICE LOOKING BEETLES!!

Coffee in my system... helper willing to release the cars... racing to start within the hour. 

72_Chevy_C10
I would say vroom vroom...but how about, put, put pt, Put put put, for the Bugs! :)
CrzyTrkrDude
^^^^^ 'zactly what C10 said. lol

Ok, video is uploading... some great racing today.  I still struggle a bit with iMovie. I used the slo-motion feature, but in some cases the video went to normal speed at the beginning, or right at the end... a bit frustrating. Fishtail tells me it is because the videos are too long... oh well thats what I get for using slo-mo on the low and slow track. 

Some epic battles today... the racing will get faster from here on out, bigger ramps will bring the speed and other cars to the front of the pack. 

Other notes, wide range of music today...had to fill 14min of video. I even put in Green Onions for Smitty. Black cars are darn hard to see on my track...sorry. 

Popcorn ready?

https://youtu.be/92XSQU7Hmps


72_Chevy_C10
Awesome job on the video, TE! Thanks for hosting!
Traction-Event
Plenty of come from behind action...

Well damn, so close to a podium finish! I think this is the best any of my mods have ever done, so I'll take it. Had a lot of confidence in that little bug...he earned his 4th place. It's encouraging heading into the next tracks.

Good job on the video. Really makes me start thinking about how to pain the roof of my cars so they're easy to see. Not just for black tracks but in general.

Awesome video and soundtrack! That was some amazing racing real fast builds all around, I think it's going to be a close series, gonna have to fight to hold on to the Winner Title!

Traction-Event
Yes, no one car stood with out a fight... even the champ traded wins with Rally Case early on...
Traction-Event
you and I had some crazy close racing today...
Eastbound357
Yes we did, I'm excited about that as I Use your and C10s cars as a reference point and personal goal to keep up with

Great video and sound track for sure.  Congratulations to Eastbound357 on the win.  This is going to be fun for sure!!


Traction-Event
thanks... you caught Crazy Truckers Ferrari powered bug...
Eastbound357
Thanks but I believe it was two seven that was the 1st place winner congratulations!
Traction-Event
yes, I'll post the final bracket once more folks have seen the video...sorry should have marked the video better
CrzyTrkrDude
( actually, as it turns out, I used a fiero/Ferrari kit car frame. little 4 banger, lol

My cars were pathetic, but my nephew won a couple races and almost a 3rd.   Way to go DT....

Stroller
My mistake DT only beat me but did make RLD work for his win......Stroller
Traction-Event
solid builds, but he ran into some fast cars...his deuce bug will do well with a higher take off ramp.

Good racing, Guys! Congrats 2Seven! I never even considered building the newer style bug!

My cars were definitely not prepared for TE's low and slow! I guess it shows how much I know about building imports! :)

Great job with the video, TE! And thanks for hosting!

I'm in Laredo. I've got very little cell signal causeing a video error on my phone. Bummer.

What happened??

 Did I tie myself for last place again??  LOL

72_Chevy_C10
I don't want to spoil it for you...you weren't last...you did well!
CrzyTrkrDude
COOL! I actually advanced a level! WOOHOO!! More than I expected!! since they went completely untested.
CrzyTrkrDude
lol. GREAT JOB WITH THE VIDEO TOO!! THANKS!!

Can I send in a second car in for the race is coming weekend?  I wasn't aware of the cars being forwarded to the next race location each week. Just part of the learning curve.      

72_Chevy_C10
Since Stroller is putting on a race with teams, and we have an even # now, let's keep it with the 20 cars that started the series.

Cool!

Gentleman, the cars have arrive and looking forward to racing them most likely Saturday evening.

That sounds great!!!

Here is the link to the match ups at Park Place Raceway, good luck to everyone!

Just noticed that the bottom of the bracket includes the top 4 racers from TE's tourney, should be a great battle to the top at Park Place Raceway! I enter all the names and the web site does the seeding randomly!

aircooled
Any idea when the results for the race will be posted?

I am diligently working on this, my Drag Tracks system is currently undergoing surgery. This system has been problematic ever since I bought it. I will be looking for a new dependable track system. Details to follow.

aircooled
I understand what you are saying. I have a DT and have had release problems with the tabs that release the cars.

Im so tired of it, Im about to make a ridiculous purchase and buy a nice system that I don't have to worry about anymore.

CrzyTrkrDude
Sounds like you'll be bypassing your "mad money" and going right to "pissed money" eh?
redlinederby
You should add your experience to the DT review here on the site

I called the # for drag tracks awhile back and a guy answered and informed me he'd let his brother know I called...

(fyi-his brother is the owner of the sh*tty company). Wait.....what..... the number for communication is your brothers cell, WTF! 

KandORacing
I had a burned out timer display on my first. The company itself hardly did anything. Had to get Jeg's to send me a replacement!!

Hey 2seven if you want to you can send the cars on to me and I will run 2 races .  One on my fast track and one on my slow track.  No problem......Stroller.

Hey Matt,

Sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your Drag Track...That's why I run the system that I do, simple Smitty Start gate and a 3DBot finish line.

If you can get your track dialed in, cool...but, if you have any reservations about it, then, just send that cars on to Stroller. My main concern is with having a fair race.

Another option would be if you could just use the finish line to judge the race and use some type of mechanical start gate. The times don't really matter, as long as you can determine the winner.

Thanks for your efforts, Matt! Keep us posted on how the track is doing!

Happy to report track is fixed and the results at Park Place Raceway are in, I'll assemble the video and post details on Tuesday! Can anyone PM me Strollers address to ship cars out? Thanks 2seven 

Stroller
sent to you 2seven...stroller
72_Chevy_C10
Cool, I'm glad you got your track sorted out, Matt! Thanks for hosting!

Should I put ORKIN on speed dial or call the SPD for crowd control.  I just heard the beetles are coming. 

CrzyTrkrDude
ohhhh, I'm sure some of them are faster than Orkin!!
CrzyTrkrDude
not mine of course... lol but some!!
Stroller
My next bug build is gonna say ORKIN on the side....lol

Let's just say my #76 bug (with black roof now) got all it wanted and more from EasyBound bug. It took 11 races to decide that side of the semi final bracket. Good racing! 

DT and I have rebuilt my track to accept the new MaxTraxx dual finish line it seems to work fine .

The finish line is not usable with Blu Trak so we laid orange track right on top of the Blu Trak.  It cradles the orange track like it was made for such a purpose.  Waiting for the VDubs to show up. BTW on Tuesday Spokane was hit with a rain and wind storm. The top speed of the wind was 72 mph only 3 mph less than a hurricane.  There is about a 1/4 million people living here. 200,000 were without electricity the first night.  It is very dark when the whole town goes black.  Well we had over 376 trees down across roads. We have our power back now and only about 50,000 homes still need power.....When the bugs get here tomorrow we will run the races.  May the best car win.  Did anyone notice that DT came in fourth. Not too bad for his first tournament.  Way to go Gabe...

Traction-Event
I noticed, heck that kid put me on the trailer! Good running there kiddo!

I'm glad to hear that you are safe out there, Stroller! Are you still planning to run the team race as well?

Thanks for hosting!

Stroller
Oh yeah that is gonna happen !! We are thinking
Stroller
of running the regular race tomorrow and the

Oh, and here is the Prize Bug...

Coolamundo!!!
Traction-Event
nice ride! Triple black bug.

 The hits kept coming, in addition to the Drag Tracks difficulty my lap top crashed and I just got it repaired. I now have the tools back to construct the video. I have so much footage captured (3 iphones w/ diff. angles) I was afraid it would all be for not. I will work on getting it completed.

The Beetles quarantined for shipping below!

The Beetle Bash ETs are below, check out the 11 race dual between my #76 and the East Bound Bug. I didn't think we would have a winner. I placed a piece of black tape on the roof of my bug to discern the two look a likes. 

https://www.flickr.com/photos/2seven/23144955152/in/dateposted-public/

What?

I can't believe both of my beetles did that good, congratulations two seven! I can't wait to see the video!!!

Well DT and I ran the third leg of the Beetle Bash.  Out in my garage.  It is 10 degrees out there.  I had the space heater going and it made the breaker kick off off, so we had to turn it off.  Anyhow the races are over and video will be out tomorrow.  Used the Max Traxx finish line it was ok but if you had a low car then it took long to actuate.  I had to judge a couple of races for fairness.......Warming up now, Will see you all tomorrow.

Traction-Event
Thanks to you and Gabe! Toughing it out in the cold for us racers.
72_Chevy_C10
Cool! Looking forward to the video, Stroller! Stay warm out there!

Once again sorry....but it was a hard fought fight for all....the first race between between Eastbound and Red Line Derby took 15 tries  and Dragon Tooth and Crazy Truck Dude ran 13 heats before a winner.  I'm hoping to get better lighting for the relay race....Stroller

I was wondering how that little air cooled Bugger would do in the 10* garage. I'm very surprised!! LOL

We are closing in on the champ, these non conventional races mix up the winners.... open track racing to come
72_Chevy_C10
I'll run a drag race and an Open track race...going to be good!

Hey C10,

I need your mailing address to send the VWs......email me...Stroller.

72_Chevy_C10
PM sent

Just to let everyone know, I'll run the drag race next week, after I get the cars (probably, early next week). And, since the open track race will take a little time to film and upload, I will start it right after the drag race. Hopefully, I'll have the early rounds uploaded by the end of next week, with the final rounds over the weekend!

I can't wait to see how this one shakes out...the open track will probably decide the winner!

The cars are on the way. They should be there Friday but Thanksgiving is in the middle so maybe Saturday.....Monday....ya know......Stroller.

CrzyTrkrDude
Hope your Family Matter worked out, and all is well.
72_Chevy_C10
If they get here this weekend, I'll run them then :)&

The battle is on for a podium spot...2Seven just has to get through the first round to clinch the top spot

Here is the bracket for Heat 6, the Open Track race...

http://i1074.photobucket.com/albums/w407/critterwerks/20151129_164614_zpso63gxcb5.jpg

I will be racing, filming, and posting a couple races a night, all week. So, this will be a week-long event to wrap-up this, first ever, Beetle Bash! 

The rules for the Open track race are pretty straight-forward. A car has to cross the finish line before it's opponent...if neither car makes it to the finish line, they will be raced again. A car may get a "push" from it's opponent to cross the finish  line. A car must win from both the inner and outer starting lanes to win the race. The finish line extends beyond the track (if a car comes off the track, heading to the finish, and crosses the line before the other car, that car will get the win).

Good luck to everyone! This promises to be an exciting heat of a very fun series!

Let the chaos begin! The first two win to get in races...

Just to wind this one up a little...2Seven has to get past CrzytrkrDude in the race tonight to clinch the points race! But if CTD wins, Eastbound can tie 2Seven, if he wins this heat!

My Stepgirl drives a turbo new Beetle. If it ran HALF as good as these little ones do, she'd be a happier girl. The 1:1 New Beetles... Wellllll, they ummmm.... You get the idea. ( there's young ears and eyes here.) LOL

And, the moment you've all been waiting for...

Eastbound just too fast! Even my tactical t-bone at the end of the first run couldn't slow him down

Hi Guys,

I just wanted to say "Thanks" to everyone for racing in this event! And to say "Congrats" to 2Seven on his win, Eastbound for his win and his 2nd Place finish in the points and to CrzyTrkrDude, Traction Event and Delta 6 for coming in 3rd! If you 3rd place guys would like me to race the cars off for the spot, I can run them tonight!

It's always fun to run an event, especially a new one! I had no idea how to set up a Bug for diverse tracks and, I have to admit, I didn't even think of building a Turbo Beetle! I hope that there will be more races like this one in the future! I wasn't really sure when I first started messing with going around corners, but when you get the track set up right, it's a lot of fun!

The builds for this race looked Great! And I hope to see you all in the events to com!

Thanks again!


Chris

Thanks to everyone that hosted and for all the effort doing the videos.

I had a lot of hope for my Beetle, felt good about the build, but have to admit that the open road stuff didn't enter my mind - totally focused on downhill. Live, lose and learn.

Congrats to 2Seven, way to represent Ohio, bro! 'Bout time we stick it to the rest.

I'm start boxing up the cars tonight...they will be going out over the next week or so!

Thanks again for competing, Guys!

Thank you everyone for the kind words. Any success achieved here or elsewhere is an attribute to the great sportsman spirit presence here at RLD! I am very excited for the new year's races and some ideas I have brewing.
