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.

Are stores still selling the HW F1 Racer? I've checked a ton of places near me and all I find is the Indy 500 Oval and the Formula E Gen 2 car. I know I can get an F1 racer on Amazon, Marketplace or eBay, I'm just wondering if it's still in stores as well.


  • Lately they've been multipack exclusive. Hopefully you'll get lucky and find one in a 3-pack rather than a 9 or 20. — Spirit_Of_64
  • There's also one that's included with the Super Rigs Big Rig Heat casting. — Spirit_Of_64
  • Thanks! I got one. — ShannonBR

I'm in if spots are opened!

The EH-Team is ready to load up the truck...I'd love to know how anyone can pack more than a few grams in this casting...let along get anywhere up around 60g's as per the weight limit...lol


I only have a single car of this casting and the wheels are pretty bent and rusted. I know I can't switch to nickel plated axles or whatever, but can I at least change them for any other mainline wheels?
