Hi Guys,

I've been tinkering with some Camaros lately and thought it would be fun to have a little Chevy vs Ford race...that is, Mustang vs Camaro. The cars can be any era, but each racer will have one Camaro and one Mustang.

The Rules:

- Each racer will have one Camaro and one Mustang from any era...plus, an optional third car, which must also be a Pony Car (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pony_car)

- All cars must have drilled rivets (modded)

- 40 grams

- 1.3" high, 3.15" long, orange track wide

- No Funny Cars

- Any Wheels

- Not Manditory, but let's try to do 'team' paint schemes (paint the cars in a similar way)

Any input on the rules? Is 40 grams good for everybody?


Heat 1 (1/31/15) Traction Event - MICHIGAN

Heat 2 (2/7/15) LJLRC - RHODE ISLAND

Heat 3 (2/14/15) Delta 6 - WASHINGTON

Heat 4 (2/21/15) Model40Fan - MAINE

Heat 5 (2/28/15) 72_Chevy_C10 - NEW JERSEY

  • Yeah, it will make for cool staging pics and make it a little easier to know whose car is whose :) — 72_Chevy_C10

Hey Cameron,

I want this to be a drilled rivet/modded race...just so you know. I forgot to put that in the rules (I just added it)...If your cars are modded (drilled), you are very welcome to the race!

I want to try to keep the cars kinda uniform for the 'end of season' race next year!


  • with a 40g limit, I'm pretty sure FOTF knew what he was signing up for...looking forward to the build..race..trophy girls...a guy can dream? — Traction-Event
  • great food at the canteen if you end up losing early like me... — model40fan
  • No; I'd hoped stockers would be allowed as well (I was considering asking about whether I'd get to enter a 41-gram stock Camaro that I have) — FOTF
  • I don't see what'll be at all uniform about the finals cars whether they're drilled or not, but thanks for addressing this before race day. — FOTF

I found a marro with a hood...  red, flamed, yellow glass, black walls, 1982 manufacturer... before I drill it it, is it worth anything ?

looking for '65 stangs and found this closed hood marro ;




  • You shouldn't have a guilty conscience drilling it..... in that shape it's not worth much. Drill it! — KandORacing
  • that first Camaro....needs a diet...metal/metal...gotta be 48g... — Traction-Event
  • workin' on one o those now. — Nightstalker

Found a teal, WWW, '65 Stang with the windshield snapped off, '55 Gasser wheelbase, rear body pin / base hole lines up...

 Welding wire roll bar, HW blister windscreen, lead weight and a tonneau to come...

 .... Low Class Pony Gas ?

Fairly easy body swap, engine, interior and trunk trimmed to fit  ;

Do the cars require the factory chassis under them or can another Camaro's chassis be used?


  • It's a mod race...you can put a '34 ford frame under it if you want :) — 72_Chevy_C10
  • Sweeeeet. I'm gonna jump in on this one — KandORacing

Why don't we make a third car be optional...and it doesn't have to be a Chrysler.  The third car can be any brand...if you want a second Chevy or Ford, you can, or any other Pony car...AMC, Pontiac, Buick, Mercury, etc...as long as it's a Pony Car...any era.

And, if I do a team points award, only the two best cars on your team will count toward your total score.

Does that sound good? Any comments before I change the first post?


  • i would recomend the 3rd car be a pony car...from that car maker. — Traction-Event
  • yeh, pony ... any brand... i like best 2 of 3 scoring, i can use any help... — model40fan
  • Done...optional third car, which needs to also be a 'Pony Car' — 72_Chevy_C10
