I thought I could do the Dragster division but given time, I'm going to have to just enter the Funny division with 2 cars and that'll be it for me. Gotta dig 'em out and dust 'em off...

Is the Neet Streeter considered a gasser?  How about the Blvd Cruiser?  It's got the rake of a gasser.  

Did I get my funny cars in on time? I didn't see my team name on the list? EightOC Racing

Did the Race date change?

Well heres abetter question, What date are the cars due in?

So Many Races So Little Time! ZOOOooooommm

I have my Dragsters and Funny Cars ready to go. Just started on the GUD entries as I have the parts. May have to pull out of the Pro Stock and Gassers as I only have 1 of each. Haven't been able to find the other 2 yet even with some help and time's running out. I'm on vacation the week before so I need to get these sent out before that. 

This here's another question, the Rears on a Dragster Have to be Fats correct? So what qualifies as a fat rear tire? It was pointed out that the rears from a Bone Shaker would be a good set of wheels to use. So can I use them on the GUD build or do I have to use the fatter ones? I ask this question because the width of the fatter wheels will change the width of the car, so therefore I would have to narrow my frame. 

  • The wider wheels are "fats" and what I believe LOS is looking for on the GUD builds but dragsters just have to have the taller skinny wheels like the back of the Shaker have.. — Mattman213

  • Thanks for the feedback, sorry about all the questions. I just wanted to build it correct. — RIVERA_RACING
  • Heck yeah better to clarify than to be DQ'd all day long!!! — Mattman213

Just a little side note to everyone. I actually built 2 dragsters and was in the final stages of setting the race wheels and paint. Then I went to re-check the specks on the build and realized that the wheel base on a stock hotwheels dragster is 2-3/4 inch long and the specks are 1-7/8 to 2-1/4 inch apart. Therefore I built the wrong style of dragster. UGH!!!!!  it was fast!

335 Miles per hour in 3.61 seconds

  • Wrong rear wheels and engine isnt quiiiiiiiiiiiite mid or rear. Sucker looks slick tho, I would adapt it to fit the rules if at all possible!!! — Mattman213
  • Thanks! No Problem.... I am already building 2 more to fit the specks. — RIVERA_RACING

First one is done. Best I can do for weight is 28.3g. I'm happy with the look but I'll be staring at a lot of parachutes.
