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 was going to mod this car anyway, so the race feel into my lap...just might be modding it sooner than expected
LeagueofSpeed
feel...fell

Yep that is defn car culture.

where are these cars from? I haven't seen them on pegs anywhere?


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

05 FTE 69 Vette donor for the 69 Racer and a Color Shifter Torque Twister for the Charger
Mopar_Mafia
Love that charger LOS
LeagueofSpeed
Going to the flea market tomorrow to see if I can find the 69 Vette before I ebay

I might build a Gasser for this one.

LeagueofSpeed
I looked for the gasser and couldn't find one
Mopar_Mafia
Looking forward to seeing your work TS

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.

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

Didn't find what I was looking for at the flea market...got a 69 FTE on the way...if it's a stock keeper I will get another one.

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.

Get mine in the mail Monday or Tuesday...how we looking field wise for this one?

GTAMAN...is this race still a go? There is not much feedback, so just wondering if we have a decent field for the race.

gtaman
May just be a few

I'm working on a car. Should finish up tomorrow and get it in the mail by at least Tuesday. 

Behind schedule, will be shipping out tomorrow(Wednesday) 2-3 day priority. I will snap post modification pics tonight.

It didn't turn out to be as fast as I'd hoped, but this should be a fun race.

Good Luck to All and Thanks GTAMan for hosting the race....Peace-LoS

Nicely put together.

Ha...Chargers worst run was the final.

Congrats gtaman!  Thanks for running them.  My little Porsche did better than I thought it would.  LOS, nice job with the Charger.  

All those cars sure did look good cruising down the track!
