Hey! ihaven't yet checked out your video, but I used to live in Loveland, out on Cty Rt 13 on the county line. I can't wait to see this!

  • Awesome! This race track is based off of the county road that comes from Horsetooth Res. down through Masonville, down Glade Rd. across the Big-T River and finishes in Downtown Loveland... with a pass by Dairy Delight. — Formula_Diecast_Racing

Monster Motorsports is in! I will send you 2 cars: 1 for me (Rubber Tow) and 1 for my daughter (Piggy 2 Lil').

This sounds like fun ..... I may have to join in.

Awesome! I'm so excited that you are ready for mail-ins!  Although I live close enough to drop them off in person (I live right between you and Rubber Tow!)  Count me in for two please!  :D

Gen-X Ventage Racing will be sending two cars.  Packing them up this weekend!

I'd like to send a pair in for this. The White Nuckle Motoring Speed Shop will send down The Eh-Team!

Foursix 3/5/21

I'd like to send a couple cars for this, what variety do you have/need I can add weight as needed, are passable fantasies like fish'd and chip'd allowed? My team is Foursix Diecast Racing and my drivers are Boog and Baby Girl. I'd be sending two cars... I'll message on facebook as well.

  • Hey I messaged you on FB. Fish n Chip'd is good! — Formula_Diecast_Racing
  • Fish ‘n’ Chipped is technically a Jaguar, so no real reason why it shouldn’t be allowed. — SpyDude

A couple of 510's headed your way

  • You hand painting these bad boys or you have a good decal printer? — redlinederby
  • RedLine. I hand paint as much as I can. For words and numbers tho it’s all decals. Normally I make the stripes by simply taping them off. The 510 wagon tho I used 2 different sets of decals. — GoldenOwl
