With v-8 engines, Solid Transmissions And Heavy Duty rears, Pick up  trucks have  long been a  source of parts for race cars...but, now they they are the racers! Muscle Trucks are a real world trend that is coming to small scale this November! 

Rules & Restrictions

  • Weight - 57 grams
  • Size restrictions; 3 inch overall length maximum, must fit on drag track
  • Cars per entrant...2 trucks per entrant 
  • Brand, body style, year, make/model - Muscle Trucks tend to be American built, short bed pick ups...often step sides, but, fleet sides are okay too
  • Wheel limitations, requirements - FTE's are allowed...must use stock style axles (axle tubes allowed)...no wheel inserts or bearings
  • Must be drilled rivets
  • Dry lubes only
  • The Traction Event rule is in place for the weight...I will allow up to 2 grams off due to scale variance...if it's over by 3 grams or more, it gets painted pink, raced, but not counted
  • Muscle Trucks tend to be beaters...so, of you want to make your old truck look like an old truck, that makes it all the more cool, in my book...not required though.
  • Time permitting, I will run the trucks twice over the holiday weekend

Prizes

TBD. I'll find some cool stuff and give it to the winner...perhaps make a custom as well

It's still here. ..still pink :)

I'm in...will race two(2) trucks. I will post pics later when I fit them into the racing/modding schedule between now and Thanksgiving....a lot of good racing coming up in November...let's hope it re-launches the RLD community back into the racing groove as we enter the New Year!!!

72_Chevy_C10
Awesome...I look forward to seeing them

Yup, I'll play... 

72_Chevy_C10
I thought you might...it's good to be racing with you again

Racing at this time of the year brings back nostalgia from when I entered the Redline Revival race some years ago.

One in the oven...

I'm starting off with these two trucks...I'll see if I can find some seed...I'm kinda rusty at this! 

Traction-Event
Rusty... Ha! its like falling off a bike... wait, thats not it.
72_Chevy_C10
Falling off, Riding...same difference :)

C10...what say yee on the Jeep Willy...I was hoping to mod it for the race...and Jeep is very American :)

72_Chevy_C10
Sure, Jeep qualify
LeagueofSpeed
Excellent

CrzyTrkrDude is an over the road trucker that used to be on here quite a bit, and he still follows along on here. Since he doesn't really have a shop to build customs in his semi...and since he likes Mopars...I'll be building this up for him, so he has a horse in this race...

I can remember drooling over these trucks when I was 11 :) My cousin had the Warlock 4x4 version

I am hoping to make this race. still plenty of time but a lot going on.

72_Chevy_C10

Mopar_Mafia

72_Chevy_C10
Yup, sounds good...just as long as it is no longer than 3" overall

1 stepside - 1 fleetside
