This is something new and I am excited about it. I can’t take any credit for the idea as it was Mark Diedrichs and Lieven (Overlord) that came up with it.

Cox cars! Dust them off!!! I will be facilitating this contest. You have time, let’s see max participation!

Rules to follow shortly...

Below the rules as discussed between Mark and Lieven:

1) vehicle driving on land and gas powered by a Cox engine (from .010 TD to .15 Conquest)

2) Propeller driven or axle driven

3) 3 categories:

Stock - Cox production cars w/accessories i.e. Cox gas powered car track, fuel cans, packaging etc.

Modified - Cox production cars with customized body/engine. with Cox engine power.

Open class - home built, scratch built, other makes than Cox with Cox engine power.

4) One entry and category submitted per contestant. All categories are show or run. One winner per category by voting.

5) I set a delay at 6 months. That means that entries will be posted on a thread opened on let's say 1 June 2019.

6) Each entry consists of 2 pictures: 1 of the car and 1 of the chassis and engine. For prop driven cars, where the engine is in most cases exposed, the second picture can be a different angle or detail. A video with the car running is a bonus. A back story about the car, owner and where the picture was taken can be added.

There could be a building or restoration thread during wintertime.

I like the rules, but the first of June 2019?

Remember I'm going on 82 and have one foot on banana peel and the other in a deep hole. Nah, 1 June is fine, where ever I am I will be watching and maybe even participating. ...........

So I see two who plan to enter. Is that all? I’ll give it another week or so, we really need 10 or so participants to make this an actual contest. Especially if I solicit for prizes.

I agree, I hope it doesn't end up like The International PT-19 fly 'em if ya got 'em day.  Only two or three participants around that particular day.  

I'm as guilty as the rest only managing to get a Cox Corsair in the air briefly while my son did yeomens work actually getting dizzy with the same plane.

Not a bad start though Eric, Chancey, and me. Three down seven or more to go.

I probably should have worded my original post better. I apologize as I did not mention signing in.

So, that said I would like to include prizes, but if it’s not required that’s ok.

I would like to see how many people plan to enter. So if you could let me know on this thread or via PM it would be much appreciated.

I've got mine already built, I just need to make stickers for it. It'll probably be a bust, as I tried to do a direct drive .049. But it was a fun couple of evenings. So, I'm in.

Ron, Thanks for all your help with the contest. I'll admit I'm not sure I understand all I know about this process.
However, regarding the early turnout for the contest, maybe need to start a new car contest blog/registration thread.
As for prizes, I don't have a clue...   Please call me if you have questions. Mark

The only thing I found online is 15ft. Maybe someone has an instruction sheet that has the suggested length.

I say go 5 ft. Let’s see how fast that puppy goes!

Could be. I got this from Bernie's PDF:

The Cars are the Stars Contest. 11_22

Got no experience with cars, but always liked the look of the Shrike, so used this contest as excuse to buy one!
