Demolition Derby Days

2seven Thursday, 12/3/2015

Greetings Racers, I would like to purpose a race for January 2016. Inspired by the new Cruiser Bruiser Hot wheel casting, a demolition derby theme drag race and hopefully open tracks too. The two qualifications are as follows: be fast and resemble a vehicle that has participated in many demo’s resulting in scars and mangle-ment?!  

Have a car that was tortured (hammer, vice, fireworks, little sister) in previous years…….well, you sir have the makings of a demo derby car!

Examples of what we are looking for:

Anyone like to host so we can make this a series?

I'll run them 5 or 6 wide on my open track drag.  There will be plenty of collisions if that's what we're going for.  The later the better cause I want to try resurfacing it...also running so many at a time makes it a pretty violent raceway (and if ultra violence is a goal given the theme, I can run it extra fast) so better later in case there's damage.  Willing to be final host unless you want them to circle back to you.

So this has been real quiet.  For hosts and entrants.  Are we thinking postpone or..........?

I'm confused as to whether this is a race, sorry. Or is it survival of the fittest ?

  • I think it is, just the cars have to look *really* beat up — redlinederby
  • it is still a drag race — 2seven

I recently built what we're calling a banger track for the LJLRC. I think the length is about 12-13 ft. Open track with 4 cars at a time. The last foot or so is tapered and allows only one car into the 1-1/2" wide channel at the end. Plenty of banging on the open part on the way down. Fastest car doesn't always win. Right now we're running the kid's cars but adults, including myself, are raring to go. I'll see about doing a video with my cell phone next Sunday at our meeting and see if I can borrow the track to host a weekend.

Should this race be postponed to increase interest? Maybe March? Thoughts? Thanks
