The Sixteen is pretty cool concept...great casting.
Almost done with mine so it should go out Sat or Mon.
The '55 Chevy is loaded and ready to head out to Ohio...
Info on the car...'55 Chevy Gasser body and interior, Chrysler 300 chassis, 65 grams
Entries from Connecticut arrived today. Webber Cabin and Rally Case are ready to roll. Expecting more cars this week.
Also have a new video camera coming that will hopefully help make better videos and streaming. Stokes to try it all out.
I'm hoping to get mine in the mail by the middle of next week. If I could just get that blasted paint to dry a bit faster. Was also thinking about a caddy but since it sounded like you were already going to have a few of those show up I'm going with something totally original. My dremel got quite a workout. :) More to come soon.
I just picked up a failed restore project on craigslist, hope I can get it overhauled and running this week!
I literally walked to Wal-Mart on a freezing day and purchased this deformed Rapid Responder (Ranger Rig). It rolls straight, but it seemed like it would have never been purchased due to how badly deformed its chassis was and how battered its blister was. After giving it FTEs, this made my fastest Cadillac V-16 become its prey, beating it by about a centimeter.
*More will be added to this car once I find a fantasy driver for it.
Good grab, the Rescue Ranger was a top performer in the Fantasy League, right behind the Land Rover and a few select others. It's record was 27-6, not bad at all. Must just have a good balance to its weight.
Graphic you put together for this race looks great!
Entries from New Jersey and Colorado arrived today.
Friendly reminder, only one week left to get your entries to Ohio.
Here's more information for the car including the driver and other fantasy details:
The 2016 Rapid Responder is nicknamed "Dormeur" by its owner, Diogene Severin, which is translated to "sleeper." A turbocharged 8.2L V-12 engine sits in the engine bay with another turbocharged 8.2L V-12 engine installed in the rear. "Dormeur" has a malformed front end but the owner ignored the defects. This truck became Severin's fastest build.
Diogene Severin is a young drag racer and physicist from northern France. Born on December 4, 1988, Severin grew inspired by drag racing in the United States before moving to Virginia and joining Arlington Racing School in 2009. Most of the vehicles he races tend to be sleepers.
So this is a total experiment. I sure hope it's fast. Only time will tell if I've built my best. Planning to get it in the mail tomorrow.
