Great to see you post Rep Pill! I'm telling you it's a conspiracy with those fairmonts, just like NASA. :P

After watching your latest on the matchbox, I'm starting to thInk that they may finally get those fairmonts before a JL has a chance. Much respect to you for sharing what you do, I know the chasing of elite speed can be quite costly in terms of $$$ and time. I've got quite a lot of lasers from a few years back that were pretty good but I've never tried graphite on them.

You may want to hunt down some matchbox Dodge Daytona superfast/lasers and also the Halley comet series of three. They can be very fast.

The thing about JL vs HW, I understand now the context around racing at LJLRC and that could paint a distorted picture about JL supremacy. However there were races posted on this forum from years back when it even got a little heated and the JL cars won many times on different track setups (those races allowed graphite). Also if I'm not mistaken, the quarter mile races at diecastracerx have been dominated by JL in the past other than that matchbox bus.

  • I've tried many JL castings:, Classics, muscle, vans and modern castings. The only 3 JL's that I've seen or heard about over the years that can compete with HW's or top MBX's are the BWF Camaro, Spiderman Van and one of the Boogey Van's but not sure which one. Like Red Pill, I test A LOT. Not as much as my brother Red Pill does, but everything I race is tested fairly and speed doesn't lie. I just ordered a NIB BWF this week. I'm perform magic to the wheels and video the test with my top tier cars. Cars which I've either won with or been in the championship rounds do not touch the cars in my top 10. If Birdco happens this year, I'll be sending my top 2. It will be very exciting to see how a 69 Camaro BWF stacks up! — Your_Nightmare

Th jls were dominant in the past at diecastracerx but recently MDG has dominated with Hot wheels cool classics.
