So I went through my collection looking for eligible castings and I found these 9. Decisions, decisions...

Okay, last question: there are 2 classes, stock and modified and each team consists of 2 cars. 

Does each racer send a team of 2 cars of either stock, modified or 1 of each or can a racer send 2 teams with 2 of each class? And does each team require a different name...


  • Stocks and Mods race together in this Event...there's no seperate classes...a Team must be 2 cars...you could have two Stocks or two Mods or one of each — LeagueofSpeed
  • ...and yes, another Team would require it's own name — LeagueofSpeed

Flash drive??? Or should I call it wheel swap!


So my coming out mod party was going to be muscle mania. I got froggy just now and took an Indy 500 oval apart. Yeah! Oh yeah! Wrong choice! Looks like 4 tires and fuel only for ole girl! I don't see any room for weight on this ride.

Are entries for this race still open? Also, can any open wheel car enter if it meets the requirements? I was thinking of entering Lakester.


How about a Matchbox Formula Racer???

For some reason I thought the Jet Threat was eligible but now I'm re-checking the list and it's not there?  Can it be raced?

Thanks!


  • Looks like the Jet Threat is one of those models with lots of versions, and my guess is some will be eligible and some won't. Which version do you mean? — MrFishyFish

This one. 


To modify or not to modify? That is the question.

I got my scale today, so I broke out my DGP cars. Both of my primary cars weigh in at 48.8+ grams. Both have good set of tires. So being new to modding is it worth the risk of messing up the handling of two great cars for 1 gram?


Now that the Vans are sent away for Nick of Time, it's time to get back into completing all the builds I started for this event....

Then set up a test track and pick and fine tune something that will run ok. Time is ticking for me!

Cheers
