Muscle Cars! Strip them of there paint and go racin'! Last year's race was a fun's a link to it...

The race will start in June, so you have quite a bit of time to get them ready

Just so I have a running count on the colors, I'll start a list here. So far it's...

Eastbound - Emerald Green

2Seven - I assume carbon fiber or flames (?)

Smitty - Black and White checkered

CCRider - Blue

Chevy C10 - Black and Orange

JDC442 - Pink 

CrzyTrkrDude/TrkrWife - Pink and Black

NightStalker - Metallic Purple

Wizard of Oz - Charcoal Gray

Traction Event - Light Green (I'm assuming he'd want Lt Green, anyway)

Voxxer Racing - Black, White and Red Stripes

MoHasFastCars - Copper

Delta 6 - Aqua w/White stripes

Redneck Racing - Green camo

Rules & Restrictions

  • Weight minimum/maximum - one 40 gram car, one 57 gram car
  • Size restrictions; length and height - The usual, 1.3 high, 3.5 long orange track wide
  • Cars per entrant/household - 2 cars per team (one 40g, one 57g), 2 teams per person, max
  • Brand, body style, year, make/model requirements - Muscle Cars...anything on this list
  • Wheel limitations, requirements FTE allowed
  • Must be drilled rivets
  • Dry lubes only
  • Misc requirements - If you look back at last year's Bare Muscle race, you will see that the cars are all stripped with a different color roof on each. Pretty cool stuff. Please paint your own roofs a unique "team" color. So, please post in this thread what color you will be using.
  • *New this year* Please keep the wheels in the wheel wells (they can stick out width-wise, juse no altering the wheelbase)...this isn't an altered drag car Way2Fast frames with a muscle car body on can still run whatever chassis you'd like, as long as the wheels are in the wheel well


This is a PINKS race...the winner of the 40 gram class gets all the 40 gram cars and the winner of the 57 gram class gets all the 57 gram cars

How to enter

Please post in this thread what color your roof will be

Where to send your cars

I'll get the ball rolling, unless some else would like to start things off

Entry deadline

The first race June get them to me before then  :)

Scoring and Winning

The usual scoring...1 point per win, with an extra point for making the finals


I will be enforcing the 'Traction Event Rule' in regards to weight...I will give you 3 grams over, maximum (to allow for scale variance). Any heavier than that, and your car will be PAINTED PINK and run, but not scored. But, please, try to keep the weights at the 57g and 40g limits...Thanks!

Tracks & Dates

I will be using the Traction event penalty rule...if your car is over 3 grams too heavy, it will be painted pink, raced and not scored :)

I'm in and I can host as well, can't wait! This is always a great series and with all the new guys too this should be one of the series that makes the year at RLD! Highly encourage everyone to enter, let's make it a goal for 60+ cars. Seriously, guys think about it, enter 2 cars you may have $10 in material and walk away with ALL the cars (which should be held as the greatest trophy & something to cherish).....I challenge any/all RLD racers to enter, let's make this a blow out tourney.

Thanks! Yeah, this one is a big deal to me as well! I missed the first one two years ago, and the race last year was a really good event! 

I'll be sending invitations to everyone that races on here to come join this one. Muscle Cars hold a special place in my heart, and what could be more fun than building your favorite Muscle car and pitting it against the best!

A 64 car field? How awesome would that be? 16 guys, entering 4 cars each...that's all it would take! And you've got until June to put them together!!

Let's make this one epic :)

Would you consider a true WTA? I think idea of winner receiving the entire field he/she beat to be the cherry on top! Just my thought, I'm cool with whatever but getting a common car in exchange demishes the risk/reward. 


  • there is no greater prize than another racers car... built with blood, sweat, tears, ... that is the risk, and why the reward is so great! — Traction-Event
  • I actually prefer WTA! I thought I'd just ad that as an option...I know Rally Case likes to get his cars back — 72_Chevy_C10
  • yea, i give mine away anyway , but i don't care either way... — fordman
