Okay, I'm game...I'll throw my hat in. This will be a little different build for me, but since the '58 Chevy Sedan Delivery is, obviously build for carving corners...*sarcasm*...it's an easy choice :)
So, any guesses what this baby will weigh by the time I'm done?
Okay, since TE is running his formerly pink pony car, I figured I would run one of my old race cars as well.
This car has a pretty good past record, but she's been sitting around for a while. I'll have to look up the dates for her races...it was at least two years ago, if not three. She won K&O's Funny Car race, and then went to Rhode Island and won one of their early modified races. Then it went to Missouri and took a third in the first drag race out there.
I'm, really, just bringing this old girl out for fun...it's only 93 grams, so she probably doesn't stand a chance. But, she has always done well, so I figure, why not?
For this race, since my employment McFarlane Toys is coming to a close, I'll call her, 'One Last Spawn'
That is why I brought a car back, not sure how my builds will preform on this open track set up. Same as when I sent cars into DiecastracerX on Youtube... I sent the Mustang which is a factory axle build, and a new build Wagon that has axle tubes. Not sure the tubes will be robust enough for the rough and tumble track. Neither are as heavy as some, but we'll see how they perform, and adjust on the next build. Open track racing has so many more variables. Building cars that go striaght is one thing... having the same speed around corners is another.
Good luck to all, we're chasing LOS and the KoM crown.
Should arrive Tuesday 2-12-19
Coming with a few friends ;)
I built the Mach Daddy for the Fat Track...went with Fats all the way around based upon the theory it would help with the track stance and be more stable when they start trading paint.
My cars headed west this morning...looking forward to seeing them run :)
