D3 hardbody racing was created in 2008 as a scratchbuilding class using model car kit bodies and inexpensive sealed motors. The emphasis is on scratchbuilding and model kit bodies. The combination has resulted in many different hardbody cars being built and raced at Buena Park Raceway. This website was created to provide detailed info on scratchbuilding and hopefully others will find it useful. Although this website reports on hardbody races at Buena Park Raceway, its main focus is on helping those interested in building/racing hardbody cars wherever they race slot cars.  Once you build your own cars, there's no limit as it opens a whole new world of slot car racing. Plenty of expert help to get you started. Newbies welcome!
