The Racer Rig is a Hot Wheels casting which debuted in the 1971 Heavyweights. 'The Heavyweights' was a series of futuristic trucks designed by Ira Gilford.

The Racer Rig was only produced in two colors; Enamel White and Spectraflame Red. It could be found with either a white or dark brown interior and was packaged with a plastic 'Collectors Button'. It has a opening tool-box and a slide-out ramp onto the trailer.

The front cab is known to have issues with a metal fatigue called 'Crumbling' where the body or chassis develops cracks and literally crumbles into pieces.

The Racer Rig has not been seen since 1971.


The Racer Rig has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions.
