Default The Fall 2015 1/24th Scale Cargo Nationals

Hi Guys,

Long awaited and over promised I'm sure..........

I would like to officially announce the beginning of a new Bi-Yearly race. I am looking to do something cheap and fun. Here is what I have come up with.

Rules

Chassis
- H&R Inline chassis kit. See HRCH10 for the exact kit
- All stock parts must be used
- Chassis straightening allowed
- Rear bushings can be soldered in (must be in stock location)
- Maximum chassis width is 95mm

Motor
- Handout the morning of the race (same as the kit motor)
- All motors will have pinion and wires on them
- Leads will be fed through guide and your braid pushed in (no guide clips allowed)

Tires
- Rears are handout the morning of the race.
Skinny Silicones 12mm width, on the H&R wheel.
- Front foams may be trued down to minimum of 25mm
- No hardening of the foam in any way. Other than leaving them out in open air

Guide
- Stock white H&R guide
- Guide may be shimmed down for maximum depth

Body
- Any 1/24 or 1/25 Scale Truck, Van, Mini Bus, El Camino or the like, Pick Up Truck, Panel Van, or Station wagon, or..............the vehicle must be able to carry a "load" of construction materials. What ya got???

No body can be wider than 95.25mm, or else there won't be any passing.

The Date - Tentative - Thinking Nov 29th now.......

Format - Half Enduro (8 Minute heats) South Loop (The Spring run will be North)

Race Fee - $10 - Includes Pizza and a pop/water

I have everything you need to build your ride at the store. Including a few new model kits that qualify.

Questions, please ask!

Hi Guys,

We are closing in on the 11th and I'm sure we are all still very hard at work building our Cargo Nats vehicles. So I am going to push the race date to Nov 1. 2015. This will be the Official Race Date.

Please post pics of your vehicles if you guys have them.

I am also announcing our first official Concours for this event. We will all be voting for our favorite cars. You will not be allowed to vote for your own car.............

The Winner will be receiving a Brand NEW in the Package HRCH10 H&R Chassis kit. So take some time and detail those trucks! There is a $65 prize on the line! (I am ineligible for the prize of course)

November 1, 2015. Race ON!

Here is my work in progress......

Please note that there is room for many of the motors that are spec as this beast was meant for a massive Ford Big Block. Jr. Timmy is still trying to get the dog to sit on the passenger seat. Something to do with the driver being a few bricks short of a load.
