The last few years have seen this event be a very popular race...Thank you, Stroller, for putting on some very cool races! But, Stroller isn't really set up for this event this year, so I asked if I could put it together, and Stroller said that I could! So, the premise is pretty simple...you build a Cop car and a Robber car...the Cop cars race and the Robber cars race, and the top 4 from each duke it out! But, thanks to Traction Event, I am going to throw a wrinkle in the rules...a team weight limit of 90 grams! (See rules below)

Good luck and have fun!

Rules & Restrictions

  • Weight - your team (two cars) cannot weigh over 90 grams...with a minimum weight being 25 grams. You decide which car weighs what, just keep the total under 90 grams!
  • Size restrictions; usual sizes - 1.3" high, 3.5" long, orange track wide
  • Cars per entrant - 1 cop car and one or be per entrant. (I might up this to 2 of each...let's see how many people are interested)
  • Brand, body style, etc. - the cars can be any style, from any era, as long as you have a Cop car and a Robber car
  • fte wheels are allowed
  • Must be drilled rivets
  • Dry lubes only
  • Misc requirements - again, the combined weight of your cars is 90 grams!

Prizes

TBD. I'm sure that I will put together some prize cars for this...if anyone else would like to put together prizes for winning on different tracks along the way, please feel free!

Just post in this thread....pictures always make things better! Or, just send your cars to the first host!

Scoring and Winning

Standard points - 1 point per win, an ex tea point for getting in the finals. The Cops will race the cops, robbers to race the robbers....with an eight car shootout to held, for bragging rights!

Penalties

Cars are expected to meet the rules

  • Been a little while since we've seen FTEs on a TE build, should be interesting! — KandORacing
  • Love the patina on the robber. — Finkle_and_Sons
  • Thanks, I can't paint so it's either factory finish or roughed up — Traction-Event

Awesome! I'm glad to see that this one is gaining a little momentum! I really like the idea of weighting the cars for a total team weight...adds to the strategy!

I'll probably do a 'build up' on the cars in the picture above...I haven't done one of those in a while! 

I'm still looking for hosts...I know it is a while out, but, if you think you can host, let me know!

Thanks Guys!

I thought I'd do a little build-up on my Robber "Demon" car....

Just a little grinding on the rivet in the front...

And the body comes right off...

I love how easy the older, Redline, cars are to work on. Just grind that center rivet and both sets of wheels come right out...

And, I'll be able to glue axle tube right into this chassis
