If you are building – here are some tips:
⦁ Heat is a killer – be certain the radiators are functioning as best as possible, Clean rad, remove A/C condenser, good working fan etc.
⦁ The race will eat up brakes – new pads are a good expense.
⦁ Cars that have been sitting, will have belts and hoses that may need replacing, Spark Plugs, Tune-up etc. – DO THAT AHEAD OF TIME
⦁ Bring EXTRA batteries / tires and rims / fluids (oil+ transmission)
⦁ Mechanical gremlins take the fun out of it; try to eliminate as much uncertainty as possible before the event.
⦁ Utilize our Facebook page to ask for parts such as: window nets, fire extinguishers, etc.
⦁ Utilize auto wreckers.
⦁ If successful we will pursue this type of vehicle in the future in a much bigger way. Auto Rodeo, Figure 8 etc.
⦁ Cars must be numbered, Recommend dressing up or painting cars – NO VULGARITY!
