Hot Wheels Originals on Tobacco Road 

Can it be like the cars i sent u for the boot

Can it be like the cars i sent u for the boot

@ HWL88...the only car that qualifies for this race that you sent into Bootleg Run is the Twinduction.

No i didnt mean sending them in but basically any fantasy model

You said^^^the cars you sent in for Bootleg Run^^^...and the only car out of yours and Speedsta's that qualify for this race is the Twinduction out of those four(4). So, moving forward just ask me about a car and I'll let you know if it qualifies, but there are a lot of Hot Wheels Originals out there....Mustangs, Camaros, Corvettes, Nova's, Superbirds etc., do not qualify for this race, that would also include a Boss Hoss, Nitty Gritty Kitty...those are basically Mustangs and Cougars. The only four car(4) car like castings that I will allow are the Rodger Dodger, Blvd Bruiser, Shoe Box and Fast Fish....any questions ask here or PM me.

Here is a good example for the range allowed for this race...Speed Force has already picked her team out to be Modified...and I wouldn't race that team in a million years, but hopefully it will be what makes this race fun and unique.

So any fantasy model?

Just let me know what you've got inb mind, but it will most likely be OK

Ok gr8

If you have a good tunout, you could have a separate division for the '68-'70, nylon bushing cars

I've got my eye on this one....needless to say, it's nylon bushing day's are over....but if there sound, I'll send them your way.

Got my eye on this HW Original as to make them track worthy again.

Swingin' Wing has a staggered track-width and can be unstable.

My top 9 picks plz let me know which ones r eligable.

fig rig, stockar, mr with soccerball wheels, bone shaker, golden arrow, torque twister, alien from toy story, RO920, and V5334.

^Not sure what the last two are and the Stockar is just a weak play off a Stock Car, but I'd allow it. Learn how to post pics would be helpful...or good Ole "copy and paste"

If you type in those #'s they come up with pics

...and if you can see a can copy and paste.

Is this the V5334? If so, then yes, it's fine and more in line with the theme than the Stockar casting.

....and if this is the R00920....then yes, it's fine.

Those r it but stockar is acceptable, but if i can avoid it i should? 

Not necessarily...up to you.


I would like to know the eligible status of the following vehicles:

2005 First Edition - Drop Tops series

-`57 Nomad

-1963 Corvette Stingray 

-Dodge Super 8 Hemi

2005 First Edition - Torpedoes series

-1971 Dodge Charger

-Subaru Impreza WRX

-Willys Coupe

All cars with real names but are obviously re-proportioned (flattened/centralized) versions of the vehicles they represent. 

Those would be okay, as you wouldn't see those on the road.
