The Great Hudson Hullabaloo Build Off 2017! Q Run is in!!

Ok guys, since we seem to really be into these Hudsons lately I think we need a Fun Run!

The cars must be 1/25 scale hardbodies. We will use the new Jaws long can motor from SCC and urethane tires. Only brass chassis will be allowed. Whether you build one from scratch or use an H&R or ProTrack. All will be legal. Gears are up to you.

The cars will be due at HRW HQ no later than June 19. Harry will run the cars that weekend with a very special guest driver! Then the cars will come to So-Cal and I will run them on the So-Cal Speedway with a guest driver as well.

I think we will have a couple of contests just to make it interesting. Fastest car overall will get a special prize from me. We will also due a pseudo concourse event and that winner will also get a little something for his efforts.

This is the kit I will be using for my build. These Moebius kits are gorgeous. They are available from several vendors on eBay.

Now let's here it! Who's in?!?!?

My chassis are built (motors included), and only waiting mounting of the bodies. I'll send them along, but they are disqualified by being built earlier than rules.

Let's see... you posted that 3 and a half hours ago, Bob... are you finished yet?

I'm glad I'll get to participate. I think I may have one that is unique because the paint color is so hard to find. The other two are straight copies of photos, and the paint for them was easy to find. We'll see!

I just got off the phone with my dad and he is looking up a couple of pictures for me of cars that ran in Iowa and Minnesota. So if everything works out, I will have something to run. I think I will check out a chassis that is ready to go because it takes me a while to build one, but who knows, I may get ambitious.

Great news sir. SCC does have the bare H&R that would work just fine.

Getting an early start on my Entry! I didn't want to send in a beat up used one, so I have a reason to build another car! Lots to do yet, but a good start I think. Harry and Dave have really stirred up a "Hornets nest" on this one! :lol:

I'm liking the sound of this event. I'm pretty busy so I'm not sure I would get it built in time, particularly since I have to get the parts sent from the US first. See how I go.
Thanks

OK - I haven't built a 1/25 scale car in some time - but with the new CB Design no rib steelies in 1/25 and finding a seller on ebay offering inexpensive Hudson body kits, I will be using this as a starting point for my build:

This should make for a fun build! :D
