Hello Diecast Teams!
The GTR Clone Wars was a complete experiment. I tested several diecast rallycross liftback makes & models, then created a private video, and invited 16 builders to participate. One builder had to back out last minute, so I created Darth Vador's team of Sith Lords.
Here are the cars that I videod and drift tested to assist the builders.
I loved having the Sith Lord team to mix things up. It was a nice twist to otherwise traditional diecast racing, but after 6 episodes I felt the races needed to focus on the top 8 scoring teams. Why was this a closed tournament and not open to anyone? Well, some of the builders listed above have been sending me cars and supporting my channel from the very beginning. It was time I give them something to enjoy.
Each builder chose a make/model and was assigned to build 2 cars very similar (or clone-like) so the viewers could identify who they were... i.e. their signature logo and/or paint scheme.
Thank you to all the teams! This was a complete blast!!
