First, some quick apologies for getting behind in the Rundowns lately. Life has been busy and I got a bit behind. It happens...you guys barely need me at this point. But enough about me, lets take a look and see what's been on your minds lately.
Community photo gallery
A recent web site update included a new community photo gallery that shows off the latest photos and images being shared around the web site. It's a great way to spend a few minutes every few days to see what people are doing.

3DBotMaker debuts new 2021 mainline
Our friends over at 3DBotMaker scored big and got in with Mattel, allowing him to debut a new 2021 mainline. Appropriately, it's a classic Lancia rally car. They only got a bare metal prototype casting but still cool to see. Can't wait!

This new entry in the Track Directory is a great looking layout that lives out in Oregon. Some really cool twists and turns covering 40-feet of fun.
In the driver's seat

The first stage of Charger Summer is in the books. Catch all the great racing and highlights from the first track. Next stop for the Mopar Army is Michigan.
