NZ Stockcar "Tank"

11 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

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.

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..
