Class of 19 - the Funny Cars

RobertBcfc Wednesday, 7/24/2019

Obviously historically they have been among the fastest cars out there, but how do the new castings stack up?

I bought one of the 2018 versions and it was woeful, not even a pale (plastic) imitation of what went before.

Similar story with this year’s offerings, or are there gems out there to be uncovered?

I've personally never had good luck with any Funny Cars. I have quite a few but apart from Snake/Mongoose none of them are super impressive.

Nothing in new runs I've found have been like the 15-20 year old FC's? They were all quick but its fun finding the rare ones that are fast on another level.

Thanks guys - I know a lot of the faster Funnies got “retooled” 7 or 8 years ago - they no longer opened and were plastic rather than metal on metal.

I think I’ll stick with the older ones.  I picked up a 2008 T Hunt the other day which is HEAVY!  Excited to see how it runs.
