As part of May Mahem there will be 4 classes raced.  The Feature Stock class will be Lightweights this month.  The Builder's Challenge class will be the Gaslands race.  We will also be racing the Open Modified class and the Modified Street class.  


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.
