Awesome to see the teamwork and collaboration! Kickserve is lucky to sit under the learning tree that is Voxxer.

And this is a good time to remind folks that the entry deadline is about 2 weeks away on 5/16. 

I'd say you have another solid week to keep building your cars and then try to have them in the mail by 11th to give you plenty of time to arrive in Ohio. 

Good luck!

I just updated the scoring and format section on the first page of the thread. It outlines how the scoring and points work, and how each track will run their stage of the event.

Any questions, just shout.

Hoping to not entirely  embarrass the team.  "The Beast" will try to represent along with Commotion_Diecast's entry. Unfortunately too late for mailing today but she'll be in USPS hands on Monday. 

  • What are those wheels? — GenX_VintageRacing
  • I believe they’re called “cold molded” or something along those lines. I’ve run across them on the AcceleRacers line of Hotwheels — ChiefWopahoo
  • I figured they must be comolded. They look great! — GenX_VintageRacing
  • Okay, I want to see the rest of the picture. What's your car sitting on with that great paint? — SpyDude
  • Believe it or not that’s on a 2000 Jeep Wrangler I picked up a few months ago and it is the original paint. — ChiefWopahoo
  • Glad I changed the paint on mine! — The_Commish
  • Awesome! Can’t wait to run with ya! — Commotion_Diecast
  • Wow! I've never seen wheels like that! They look so good on that casting! — G4DiecastRacing
  • Those Co-Mold Wheels are Hot, But I see your only rolling on 3..... — RIVERA_RACING

Well, I'm hoping that I don't slow MattMan down too much.  I did what I could on the car, and definitely took his advice on how to set things up, so ..... we'll see.

  • I'm doin my final steps on a couple builds and whichever is quickest makes the trip! Don't worry bout slowing me down and I pray I don't slow you down either...let's have fun and see what happens when it's all said and done!!! — Mattman213
  • I dont think you two have anything to worry about, everyone else has to worry about you 2.... — RIVERA_RACING
  • HA I appreciate the confidence for sure but I always look forward to seeing who's gonna step up each race and in this race in particular, I look forward to seeing who does what at each location! — Mattman213

(In case anyone was following my post over on Facebook, this is also the car that I used a little too much dry lube on.  Do NOT. EVER. Squeeze the dry lube bottle.)

  • Nice! Been waiting to use that casting so we'll see how it does! Good luck! — pupulesurfer
  • If it ever gets posted, this was also the car I used for the Star Wars race, too. — SpyDude
  • Nothing left to do now but wait and see how it all pans out. Gonna be some fun times! — Mattman213
  • Love what you guys did with your cars! — RIVERA_RACING
  • Thanks Rivera, I wondered if mine would be up your alley being an XJ. I knew a couple folks might get a kick out of it. Ive yet to have an XJ turn out quick so Im hoping this one breaks the mold — Mattman213
  • Thanks, RIVERA. I’ve been wanting to use this casting for a while because I really liked the rat rod feel of it. The wheels were a 3am afterthought that actually turned out quite nicely against the flat black paint job. — SpyDude
