The Spectraflame Wide-Open is a pick'em style tournament that celebrates Hot Wheels unique paint style, the nearly color-chrome Spectraflame. There are 24 cars of various vintages and styles, going as far back as the original Sol-Aire CX4 and Wind Splitter to current iD cars that also share the paint. All cars are pre-graphited to ensure best performance. 

Cars will race in groups of four seeded by the first qualifying session and have the familiar points system of 5/3/2/1 and 0 for failing to finish the lap.

Feel free to comment here which car you desire, or on the video itself. Registration closes on Friday, 7 PM United States/Eastern Standard Time. Thanks for your consideration!!

Really liking that track. Could you tell us more about it? I see some Crash Racers stuff in there,and that looks like a Slanman starting gate .... what's the timer?

  • Glad you enjoy it! The track indeed utilizes a Slan start gate, and a Slan timing system. There are pieces of orange track, Slan 90° banked/laned corners, the over/under alley-oop is from an older high-bank set with a booster, and of course, the 1950's Lionel train bridge. Everything is otherwise connected with Slan connections or held up with household junk. — Scoupe
