Tournaments and RacingCrew Chief Challenge 4 - Haulers and Hot Rods

  • Jump to last reply
When: Saturday, March 17, 2018

The Crew Chief Challenge race was the first modified race I ever, it's always kinda cool when I decide to run it again. I like to think of this race as competing with both the Hot Rod racer that you hauled to the track...and the hauler that got it there!

Rules & Restrictions

  • Weight minimum/maximum - 45 grams for the Hot Rods 75 grams for the haulers
  • Size restrictions; length and height - 2.75" max length for the Hot Rods 5" for the haulers
  • Cars per entrant - two teams (car and hauler make up a team) allowed per household
  • Brand, body style, year, make/model requirements - Hot Rods should be 1941 and older...they can be fenderless or with fenders '41 Willies and Neet Streeter are examples of fendered cars allowed. There are many fenderless cars out there...take your pick.  I'd like to see the haulers based off of older style trucks as well, but it is not required...if you were hauling a '32 Ford to the track, what would you haul it with? 
  • Wheel limitations, requirements - Fte's are wheel inserts or bearings allowed...must be stock style axles, alxe tubes allowed Wheels can be sanded and polished
  • Must be drilled rivets
  • Dry lubes only
  • Misc requirements - the Hot Rod must fit on the hauler. I'm giving you guys lots of room (5" length) to play with and 3 months to play, have some fun building the haulers!

Oh yeah!

I was looking through one of the drawers in my desk and found this abandoned project...a Willies Coupe body on a Neet Streeter frame, with the front axle tube mounted below the chassis! I'm not sure why I didn't finish it, but I'm pretty sure it will fit on the back of a ramp truck!

Gassed out! nice
Yep liking that

A little real life inspiration for the haulers :)

I'm in


I'm in. Got my hot rods whittled down to 4 possibilities.   Still working on ideas for the haulers. 

Cool...glad to have you racing with us!

I've got the FTE package for the 32 Ford picked out...the Ramp in progress.

Hot Wheels Matchbox diecast cars

May not even be a ramp truck when all's said and done...that's the fun part!!!

Hey Guys!

I'm back! This is my first day off of 2018...Toy Faire prep has been as crazy as ever.  But, I wanted to bump this to the top. We are a litrle over a month out from the CCC...I hope everyone is getting their teams sorted out. 

You'll be seeing what I'm working on over the next weeks. 

Changing my Hauler...FTE packages are ready...workshop is next.

Sweet! I need to get my builds going too!
