Hot Wheels 50th race idea

Jump to last page

I've been out of the mix for awhile... Honestly I can barely navigate the new site, but I'm coming around...

What better way to get back in than hosting a race. Been kicking around an idea to celebrate Hot Wheels 50th aviversary. How about a race where you must use the wheels and axles pictured below. Looks like there will be 10 cars in the series with these wheels. 

Race rules, so far...

Modified or Stock,

2 cars per racer,

Must use 50th aniversary wheels/axles,

57g  max class,

Dry lubes only,

Any, and I mean any Hot Wheels car 1968-2018... 

If this idea gets support I'll host on my home track

You know me...I'm in...and good to see you getting back into the swing of things!!!

Also, prepare to defend your Modified Division title...American Muscle 2 Veterans Day Weekend!!!

Can I just use 50th aniv. cars this way I can keep them stock?

  • TE has Stocks and Mods...so it appears the answer is yes. However, you'd get smoked by a Mod if it's mixed classes....Drill them rivets Young Man!!! — LeagueofSpeed

If I can find 2 of these cars, I’ll go for it. I need the experience. Are they in stores now??

Im too lazy and figure out how to get the axles in and out.

  • There's definitely a "want to" when it comes to modding — LeagueofSpeed
  • lots of tutorials, here and on line... questions? ask? — Traction-Event
  • Get some garage sale cars or some beaters and practice drilling the rivets and popping the axles. Practice doing that before you hack a good car — Mopar_Mafia
