With the new Star Wars movie coming out it seemed only fitting to celebrate with a Hot Wheels race! The last few years Mattel has come out with a line of Star Wars Character cars.  That is what we will be racing this month.  There have been a few other lines of Star Wars cars lately, like those based on ships, etc.  But this month just the Character cars.  Who will be the fastest?  Vader, Luke, Yoda?  Who will you race?

Cars will race on the Diecast 64 four lane downhill gravity track.

Cars may be modified or stock.
Weight: 57 grams or less.
Length: must be 3.75 inches or less
Height: must be 2 inches or less
Width: must fit on Hot Wheels orange track
Dry lubes only


Racers may enter up to two cars. There will be a $1 entrance fee per car.

Races will be videoed and posted online.

Cars due January 20th, 2018.  Racing will start the following week. Video and results will be posted the following Saturday, January 27th.

This race is part of the 2018 Diecast 64 points series.

Local and Mail-in cars are welcome.  Mail-in cars should be sent with return postage if the racer wants them back.  Mail-in cars should also be accompanied with an entry form.

Now I’m looking forward to my capt phasma (my first attempt at modding a hot wheels car) does against yours.  Just dry lubed, polished axles and weight added. Didn’t have any FTE wheels to put on it, so it’ll be interesting to see how they stack up against each other. Here’s hoping we meet in one of the heats. Good luck league of speed......
