Hey there, I am new to the whole die-cast modification and have found many things that work for myself. I wanted to check in regarding the rules for KoTM. 1:) In the rules, it is noted that "No Tape or visible glue on the outside of the cars."... does that include the base? I have been using Gorilla Glue to hold the base back together in place of the rivets. I have tested the strength on a few vehicles my son and I have modified and found that to be an easily accessible solution and the glue is nearly invisible on the base. 2:) Would solder be a good solution for adding weight to the cars? This is another easily accessible item I currently have. I feel melted solder may be easier to get into hard to fill spots versus the tire weights. I look forward to being able to submit in the future and any tips for the newbie would be greatly appreciated.
PS: Here's my collection of oddball mods (that are 100% not designed for the track).
