I've been pro wrestling fan pretty much my whole life and one of the greats, Dusty Rhodes, passed away in June. He has no connection to cars or racing Hot Wheels (except that both wrestling and racing toy cars are ridiculous), but it's one small way I can pay tribute to a great entertainer.

The gimmick here is each racer enters 2 cars: one modded, one stock. The stocks race in their own bracket, as do the mods. The 2 winning cars will then go on to a Best of 5, head-to-head shootout.

The racer with the ultimate winner will receive all the stock entries as their prize. Modded cars will be returned to their owners if they want, otherwise they'll go into the prize pot.

Highlight Videos



TractionEvent does it again. His Bone Shaker XL mod out-paced the stock Pocket Bikester of CliffordShaw. TE wins himself all the stock cars entered and adds yet another notch in his belt. 


Rules & Restrictions

  • Limit 1 entry (2 cars) per household
  • Mods must have drilled rivets.
  • Stocks must be unopened
  • 65g weight limit for each
  • Max 3.25" long by 2" high. Width should fit on standard HW orange track
  • Any brand, any model, any year.
  • All wheels and axles allowed.
  • Dry lubes only


Winner will receive all the stock entries as well as any modded cars not getting returned to their owners.

How to enter

Make a post to this thread with your intentions, or just mail your cars to the address below before September 1. The tournament will be held at a later date.

Please include an ID card with your entry so we can be sure your car gets returned and labeled properly. Please include $2 with your entry if you want your cars returned. If you do not want your entries returned, they will be added to the prize winnings.

Send entries to:
Redline Derby Racing c/o Brian Vaughn
PO Box 842
Grove City, OH 43123

Scoring and Winning

There will be 2 brackets, one for mods and one for stocks. The winner of each bracket will race in a Best of 5 series. The racer that entered the final winner gets the victory.


Outline the penalties if a car fails to meet the requirements. Include any details about how a racer can get their entry fixed, adjusted, etc.

Sounds really cool, but can the weight limit be 61g? Most of the heavier Johnnies are 61g stock.

Yes, any stock is accetpable. Anything that isnt modified qualifies, carded or not.

  • This might change things--I had just been disappointed to see my idea was no longer on eBay. — FOTF
  • So it's the one who wins the stock vs. mod final who gets all the stock cars? — FOTF

Got started on my mod... lots to do... but here is a rough idea. I'm sure Smitty has done one like this... He gets the credit
