Blackwall Vintage casting race

Traction-Event Thursday, 11/17/2016

If it comes together I think this race would be in February 2017. I’d like try and pin down the rules around this race. If there is interest, I'll start another thread.  Here are my initial thoughts. I would like to see a race of the late 70’s-early 90’s cars. They still produce these wheels today, but let’s race some vintage cars here!!! These wheels “in my opinion” were built for looks over speed. Dig through your collection, or dig one up on ebay and see if you can coax some speed out of a vintage car. You’ll have two shots to win, and two tracks to compete on. The first race would be for the stock,un-drilled vintage Blackwall car. Second race is for you Modified racers, take your vintage Blackwall car and upgrade the wheels/alxes


2 cars, 2 tracks one winner in each class.

1st car, truck van stock/un-drilled blackwall , dry lubes only, 75g max weight, these wheels seen below

1st track My standard set up seen here


2nd car,truck,van Drilled original black wall casting, NO FTE axles, or wheels. 5sp wheels axles only

2nd track My “low and slow” track set up seen here


Rules & Restrictions

  • Weight max weight 75g

  • No funny cars

  • Size restrictions; length 3-1/8 and height must fit Drag tracks finish line 1.3in high.

Rules look good to me, TE. When you start up the official thread, be sure to use the template, that way it automatically gets put on the calander of coming least, it should :)

I might try to get in on this, but I don't know if I have many good ones to offer ... maybe one of the possibly-decent ones wouldn't be too heavy (assuming it's old enough).

so... sounds like 6-7 racers so far... Lets make it 10 and I'll start an official race thread.

Digging through my collection... I think I found the car I'll use for the 2nd race "Modified". The 442 was a childhood favorite, and 43g to start

Still looking for a fast "stock" Blackwall

The best Blackwall I've found so far...

I might have to put a Chevy engine in it to get some more speed out of it :)
