Feature: ZAMAC Half-Mile



This month's feature race is the ZAMAC Half-Mile. ZAMAC is an acronym for the Zinc, Aluminum, Magnesium, and Copper alloy that Hot Wheels and other die-cast toy cars are made from (cast).

A ZAMAC car is basically an unpainted car. ZAMAC cars have been released for the last several years by Mattel through Walmart.

For our feature race this month, ZAMAC cars will be racing on a two lane 1/64 scale half mile track.  It will be a little over 41 feet of "Dragtracks" brand track.  It is the same type of track used on the D64 Shelf Track which hosts the Hot Wheels Pick'em game (seen in the following video) as well as other tournament races.



The ZAMAC cars need to keep their original ZAMAC look.  The only part of the car you may paint or customize is the roof.  You can paint it, put flames on it, put a number on it, what ever you want to do to make it your's, but only on the roof. 

The race format for the ZAMAC half mile will be a single elimination bracket tournament.


  • Cars must be ZAMAC Cars.
  • All added weight must be inside the car and it should keep it's original silhouette.
  • Cars must keep their original ZAMAC look. The only exception to that is the roof.   
  • Cars must be 80 grams or under.
  • Cars may be stock or modified.
  • Length: must be 3.75 inches or less
  • Height: must be 2 inches or less
  • Width: must fit on Dragtracks brand track (basically HW orange track width)
  • Dry lubes only
  • There is a $1 per car entrance fee.
