    About the Staff VS Staff Hot Rod Mod Off Event

    Hello and I bet you are wondering what this event is all about. Last year we did the NVIDIA ION Modding Contest and we wanted to make sure that we did something this year too. After some brainstorming we came up with this event, the Modders-Inc.com Hod Rod Mod Off - Staff VS Staff.

    The idea behind this event is to show everyone how you can create a great looking case with basic tools and little money. We are going back to the roots of case modding and we hope that you enjoy the ride!

    This is a Staff VS Staff Contest Only

    You are more than welcome to create your own, but it will not be part of our little contest as there has been some trash talking though out the staff and this will give a way to settle it ;-)

    [hr]
    We want to say THANK YOU to our sponsors for this event.

    The rules are as follows:

    1- Each staff member will start off with the same case, the Thermaltake Element S - Read our Review.

    2- The theme of the mod must be some sort of vehicle such as a car, truck, van, tractor, motorcycle, and etc.

    3- Tools used are limited to basic or normal modding tools (scroll saw, jig saw, rotatory tool, pliers, hammers, and etc).

    4- The majority of the painting of the case MUST be from a spray "rattle" can. We can use an airbrush but for minor details.

    5- All work must be done by the modder. NO outsourcing of work will be allowed (painting, etching, powder coating, etc).

    6- Money is limited to $150 out of our pocket.

    7- We CAN use stuff that we already have lying around such as LED's, fans, lights and etc.

    8- IF freebies from vendors are available each Staff case modder MUST get the same item or as close as possible.
    Example: Fans, not everyone would want the same size, type or color but fans would be available to everyone.

    9- There is a 3 month time limit, but that could change at anytime! 8O

    10- This is a Staff VS Staff Contest Only


    Keep a watch out as we are collecting items to give away to site members that participate in the event. We are working on the ways to give items away.

    The work logs will be up shorty and you will be able to follow these fun builds.

    I am asking for some help on getting the word out about this event. If you can please "blip" about it on your travels to other sites :-)

    It also looks like that Thermaltake will be giving away a few items too!
