We are back with our 1st mail in event of 2024. Hope you all will join us again this year. We really enjoy having you all and hosting such a fun event. The format and rules will be the same as other events.
It will be a bracket style races based on time trials. 4 cars racing 4 laps. Alternating positions each lap.
I am looking for a field of 32 to 64 cars
I will take as many cars as we can get and will adjust accordingly. If this means a play in tournament B4 we start the actual Custom Carnage that is what we will gladly do. As our goal here is to give every car a chance to shine in our tournaments. And have everyone enjoy seeing there cars race on the Comet Tail.
As before I will be willing to mail your cars back. I do hate to ask but postage is expensive. I ask $10 for return shipping if you would like your cars sent back.

Race format and scoring

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

Bracket seeding will be based on time trials. 

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.
