I'll take that last spot with cars please - Buno
Well, somewhat to my surprise, the Redline Rumble field has been filled! We have 30 cars earmarked to enter the cage next month. Hopefully this will be a fun little experiment that we can add to our bag of tricks.
Look for a show in early March to find out what entry number you draw for the rumble. Start your build planning and hope for a late number draw. And remember, no FTEs on this one!
Ready for the Rumble, I would take the #1 draw if guaranteed #30 draw.
Do keep in mind that upon inspection a polished mainline axel will shine like a NPA.
Mailed mine this morning. Supposed to be there Thursday.
The Hot Bird from China was a "no go" due to NPA....gotta love the China castings from the 90's.
Quick question before I ship, are these considered nickel plated axles? I only thought the standard FTE wheels had the plated axles. Little did I know.
Both my cars are packed up and ready to go! I forgot to take a picture of them but I think everyone knows what they look like so no biggie.
My 2 cars: Green Shadow Jet (Mod) and Jaguar I-Pace (Stock)
Decided to give the Shadow Jet another go (this is the same car from triplemania weekend). I did rebuild since. Polished the axels, added 5g of weight, sanded the wheels a bit better and a puff of some more graphite.
The Jaguar got some very minor wheel sanding and Graphite.
The only track I have set-up now is the philly farewell track which is absolutely worthless for testing drag speed but hey I did it anyway. The Jag beat the pants off of the Jet. Were it to have qualified for the Philly Farewell, it woulda also wooped the field at a whoping 58cm distance. So, take that for what its worth. Speed on my tracks never seem to translate well to mail-in events!
Hoping I can get them into the mail tomorrow!
Well heck, this site is great for learning. Didn't know the info about cars made in China and nickel axles. Checked on a pair of twins that my wife ran in the 3D. business challenge. One is Malaysian and the other China made. Can't tell in the photo but the axles definitely have a different shine and the bases seem to have a little different finish as well. Now I've got a whole nuther thing to look for.
I lost my car honestly it's nowhere.
When you're trying to remember if you have any non NPA builds already built as you drift off to sleep last night that could possibly compete...
...The Boneyard Brothers are heading to the Rumble.
...2018 Boneyard Classic Champion-Trim 2 Fast and the 2019 Boneyard Classic Runner-Up-Way 2 Evil.
Soo...the Rumble entry draft video will get posted soon, however, since the time that was recorded yesterday, I've gotten word that McJiggles won't make the race, and it sounds like HotWheelRacing's is MIA. Thus, a few slots have opened...I'm gonna call it 3 slots (Jiggles had 2, HWR had 1).
If there's anyone that wanted to enter the Rumble but came late, this is your chance to get in. There are 3 openings. Reply to this with your intent and car count.
However, since the entry drawing has already happened, if you fill those slots, you'll take their entry numbers as well (I'm not going to redo the draft).
If no one takes those empty slots, and if others just forgot, any empty slots on race day will just get ignored and everyone will get bumped up a number. I'm guessing we won't get a full 30-car field so we'll race what we get and have fun like always.
