Race format and scoring

This will be a single-elimination tournament. A car will move on in the bracket that produces the faster time and bigger beat after lane swap.

The car that wins the final race will be declared the winner. Race host has final decision in all races.Final race will be a 2 out of 3 takes the overall win. 

Bracket seeding will be random and will be determined before race day.


Cars are given a grace of 1g over the stated weight limit to account for variance in scales. I run them how you send them.

If a car fails to meet any of the restrictions listed above, the car will not qualify for victory. Offending cars will still race. Finish position and any prize will go to the runner-up in the case of the penalty car winning.

Cars that arrive damaged in shipping, I will contact you directly and see how you want to proceed. I am willing to attempt repair but it's your call.


1st place will get a Johnny Lightning prize pack and trophy.

Stupid? Johnny lightning are all rubber tires right?  Lol

  • No sir.....a lot are but there's a lot with the plastic tire, which is what we are Racing.....Coca cola studabaker, BWF Camaro, etc....we certainly look forward to seeing you at MileHighRaceway! — ElevationDiecastRac1ng
  • Good question, I thought that too. I'll have to check mine to see if I have any with plastic tires — G_ForceRacing

I have a question. It states in rules stock, then it states 70G weight limit so I need clarification we can or can't add weights and if not would it be allowed to open the car up just to polish the axels. 

Response will be much appreciated 

I'm in for two!
