FuglyCool - build a wild ride competition.

Recommended Posts

TikugO1l.jpg

Let's have some fun. 

I am inviting one and all to enter FuglyCool - a competition to build a 1/32 slot car that is both fugly and cool. This is not a proxy and these cars will not race each other. This is simply a 'build a wild looking car' comp that walks the line between looking f%#king ugly and being just plain cool. That could mean a 917 with a fat body kit. That could mean an escort limo... whatever floats your boat. The options are endless. 

Because these cars won't race there are very few rules.
1. FuglyCool cars must be based on 1/32 RTR body and plastic chassis, and
2. FuglyCool cars must be able to run a lap on your home track. 

I'll throw in Sideways Group 5 BMW for the winner and post it out.

Assuming there are a few interested parties and this gets off the ground, FuglyCool will be judged by Munter - a man who understands the thin line between ugly and cool.  

Let's see how the builds progress but at this stage a photo of your FuglyCool entry must be posted here by the end of June. 

Who's in?

Great stuff. Looks like we're underway, although the vast majority of the entries are from my local, Kiwi, racing group. What's the name of this forum again?

If Munter was writing your school report I have a hunch it would read 'Terry needs to try harder.

I think you'll find Munter is far further ahead than that! :D

Just to clarify, the idea here (as the title of this thread says) is to build a wild car - not show a stock car with a dodgy livery.
Add things on. Take things off. Do whatever’s clever to achieve that zen state of FuglyCoolness. That’s where the fun is that.

Whether or not you choose to post where your FuglyCool mind is wandering is over to you but, as of now, this is where my head is at:
