This is a partial line up, still have 6 to fix up, 

All will be DYNA-REWIND powered, maybe a Certus will be tossed in some where.

Old school brush paint schemes and decals, I like the race car look. nothing fancy.

Waiting for fresh skins.

A thingie body by Gene on a custom piano wire chassis will be one of the three scratch builds I will be doing for sure.  ;)

Very nice Gene! I think I'm going to have a near twin to one of these, since you built it for me many years ago... ! 

 

What kind of rubber is recommended for this track?

Don
Last year I used tuna tires and they were used, no issues, track is smooth with excellent grip, suggest low gearing, say> 4~1+
If the tires on your car appear not correct I can change them out for you, I will have spares.
Oh! Pace Car? It would do very well.
Thanks and good luck.
