Here's my latest build,
Its a replica of this superstock tank from Palmy North here in New Zealand, I managed to photo and measure the whole car over the Christmas break, and have been building hard out since, so far spent over 100+ hours on it.

Most of it is scatch-built from plastic card and strips , apart from the motor ,gearbox and tyres ,rims are all from a Revell nascar kit..

This is the real car..

What the hell ?  I never saw such a thing. It's pretty cool.  They race these ?  It looks like a bumper car.

Holy BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH, that is awesome!  What is the goal with that type of racing, how do you win?

That was very fun to watch. That is some real "get the hell out of my way" racing. Thanks for posting.

Is that basically a blocking game? Or what?

The video that Brett put up is of what we called Teams racing .There are 2 teams of 4 cars on the track at one time and its raced over 10 laps .1st car to do 10 laps wins

Normally you have 2 cars racing and the other 2 cars block..

We also flag race too . which is most of the time as teams racing very hard on the cars and drivers..
