I love some of the new car culture cars that are coming out in the Aircooled and Race Day lines, how about we mod a few up to race?  The paint is spectacular on these all metal cars and they would look awesome going down the track

I've seen the Race Day on the pegs but they've been kind of sparse...usually only a few which I assume are the "ugly" ones nobody wants. The Race Day line is not with the $1 mainline cars either, they're with the "premium" cars, usually $3.50 or there abouts...so unless you get them on discount, it'll be a higher price to enter this race.

  • ....the builds excluding shipping should be $7.50 to $10 per car — LeagueofSpeed
  • I'm going to try TrUs tomorrow see if they have any — Mopar_Mafia
  • They are just for show with the Real Riders...have to swap the axels for any race worthy speed — LeagueofSpeed

I could have done a straight FTE  axel swap with the Camaro, but like the gasser, couldn't find one...but was nice to see upon getting the Charger home that the Color Shifter Torque Twister was a match axel wise...and it's not the wheels, it's the nickel platted axels.

  • Which donor car axles did you swap on the torque twister? — Mopar_Mafia
  • I will swap the front and back axels from the TT to the Charger — LeagueofSpeed

I will keep both cars at 55-57g's in order to use them in other races in the future. I will mod both in the next few days.
