Well in the spirit of FORDCOWBOY inviting fellow slotheads over to his house I came up with a race idea. Since we all cannot make it to his house, I'll host a mail in race.

I will give and mail up to 20 slot cars (one car per household) to anyone that wishes to join in on the fun.

Entrants so far are...

1)wheelszk -red GTO
2) gearhead- White/Org Camaro
3)dyno dom -yellow corvette grandsport
4)coach 61- white convertible Mustang
5)shocker 36-white/green Camaro
6)dyno-Blue GTO
7)41willys-silver chrome Willys
8)h.o.slotrods - White Cobra
9)hojoe -blue Cobra
10)bmt216a- black Challenger
11)desototjets- silver vette
12)mahorsc- orange Camaro
13)clydeomite-green Mustang
14)Fordcowboy- blue Daytona
15)Shipsgunner-pale Yellow Camaro
16)70SS-dark blue Corvette Grandsport
17)ParkRNDL- red chrome Camaro
18)Bearsox- silver chrome Camaro
19)Red73Mustang- blue chrome cobra
20)Albie-black Camaro

What you have to do is super tune the car useing only the peices that are in the car that I mail to you. Then mail it back to me. I will preform the tech inspections run the heats check the times post the results and mail the cars BACK to the entrants wheather they place first or last you will be guaranteed to get atleast one free car.

I will also provide Prizes for the top 5 places. They will be slot car related.

The tracks will be a Max Track dragstrip, A oval, and a road course. A computer will be used for timing and a averaging method of all 3 courses will be used.

Post on this thread so we can keep track of everyone that joins this event.

I hope my PM box will be filled quickly so if you get a bounce back message email me at [email protected].

I will clean and oil the cars as needed and fix any small issues that may arrise.

This is all in the spirit of good clean fun so keep the cheating to a nonexistant level please.

Thanks Dave, aka CTSV OWNER aka GOOSE CHICKEN

These are the cars I will mail out to you to use as a race car donor chassis.


Here is a close up view. It's a not so common car.




Pick one of these bodys to use as a race car. First come gets first choice.

Im very interested. I sent you an email. Its an awesome idea. Just like the Real Street Eliminator competition in Hot Rod Magazine. Or the F.A.S.T (factory appearing stock) drag racing class. :thumbsup:

As for tuning the cars.

All parts must be stock JL units. I'd prefer if we all use the honor system and just use the chassis I supply. This is just a fun race and no super hopped up arms magnets or anything.

Even the crappy tires must be the JL units. Of course I would true them up. I would also be inclined to clean up the gears, and adjust the shoes along with the spring tension.

I will check the resistance of the arms if someone wins by a country mile, and get out my gauss meter to check the magnets.

Cool, Idea!

I know nothing of tuning t-jets.. so I'll leave this competition to the pros.

Looking forward to see the results. When would be the deadline for the cars return and schedule for the race?

HEY GOOSE!!!!!!
It has been a long time my friend. How have you been? My daughter asked if you were the guy at Fest that gave her all the slot cars. I said yes and she said to tell you hi!:wave: and thanks for all the cool cars.:thumbsup:

By the way, I'll take a shot at it, someone has to be last. I'll use any body, you choose.
Thanks Bill

To those of you whom wish to help pay for shippinig I would much rather you send Hankster a few bucks to keep this website paid for and up and running.
