All out Valentine's Rat-Rod Event. Going to try and run this on the Road Course if I get it up and running on time, otherwise it will be on the Drag Strip. See Comment Below for Image Ideas.
Rules & restrictions
- Modified entries only
- 0g maximum weight
- 3.25in. long x 2in. tall x 1.25in. wide

Rat-Rod Definition (Dictionary.com)
A rat rod is a custom car with a deliberately worn-down, unfinished appearance, typically lacking paint, showing rust, and made from cheap or cast-off parts.
Rat rod is a variant of hot rod, a term for a custom car, usually modified from a classic car for greater speed, that has been in use since at least the 1940s.
Dates & deadlines
All entries must be received by the host before Monday, 2/7/2022. Racing is scheduled for Monday, 2/14/2022. Results will be posted on or after that date as is convenient for the host.

Racing will be on the Twin Canyon Run Road Course. View track profile and specs
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.
So there are only 2 Restrictions, It has to look like a Rat-Rod, and Cars have to fit the track. Being that we are running opened-wheeled car, I can not promise your car's axle(s) won't get bent during the racing. They can take a little bit of a beating, but with speed, weight, and flight (off the track), who knows what will happen. If there does become an issue, I will contact you before anything is done.
Working on prize ideas. Would like to get a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prize. Stay Tuned for more information on this. (Any suggestions, please send a message)
