 Welcome to Diecast 64 March Madness.  We saw some really great Hot Wheels racing this month with cars sent in from all over. 

Here at Diecast 64 you're going to see some of the fastest cars as well as some of the best diecast racing you'll find anywhere. We raced all four classes this month. The theme for the Feature Stock class was Open, so anything goes this month.  The Builder's Challenge this month was the Drag'n'Fly.

Builder's Challenge: Gaslands

This month's Builder's Challenge race is inspired by the role-playing game Gaslands. (If  you don't know anything about Gaslands you should really check it out.  Another fun way to play with your Hot Wheels - https://gaslands.com/)



In Gaslands, Earth is under Martian occupation.  The war left much of Earth destroyed and its population enslaved by the corporations of Mars.  Earth is a ghetto.  All money goes to Mars.  The internet is gone, but television continues under the global control of The Network.  The jewel in The Network's crown is Gaslands: broadcasting amateur and profesional death races from across the world as teams battle for a place in the prime-time international final.

This month racers should try to make their cars look like Post-Apocalyptic death race cars.  So what does that mean?  At the very least cars need to have some kind of weapon.  It could be spikes, guns, rocket launchers, or something of the like.  The weapon is the only real requirement, however using parts from multiple cars, making them look old/dirty/rusty, banged up, etc. is encouraged.

These cars will be racing on the D64 Banger Track.  Here is some footage from last year.
