We all have that cup, pail or bucket full of car parts that get discarded when we build our cars for racing...the Eternal...Quest for Speed...this race is about harvesting those parts...and building a car to live and race again!!! We will take separate wheels...back and fronts must be different and if you're axel tube inclined...why not make it four different wheels!!! the Body and Chassis must be from different castings/cars as well...use your imagination and skill and make'em fit....and your car(s) must be given names. However...NO NICKEL PLATTED AXELS ALLOWED...time to use those Mainline axels for some builds. So, build 1 or 2 cars and let's kick off October with a fun and challenging race!!!!

Race format and scoring
This will be a single-elimination tournament. A car will move on in the bracket only when it wins two races in a row. Cars will alternate lanes between each race.
The car that wins the final race will be declared the winner. Race host has final decision in all races.
Bracket seeding will be random but will try to avoid having an entrant race themselves, especially in the first round.
Cars are given a grace of 2g over the stated weight limit to account for variance in scales.
If a car fails to meet any of the restrictions listed above, the car will not qualify for tournament prizes. Offending cars will still race. Prize will go to the runner-up in the case of penalty car winning.
Cars that fail to run or fit on the track, or that happen to break during racing, will forfeit their matches. Cars that arrive broken will attempt to be repaired before the tournament. Cars that break during the tournament will not be repaired or replaced.
