    Looks like they're choosing a new Stanley scheme for next year

    Adrenaline fits the brand more in my opinion.

    If I had to choose, I would go with the Slingshot one.

    Personally, both are the 'meh' factor for me. *shrug* but then I have no taste. :)

    Sorry but slingshot just looks like a bunch of random shapes thrown together. It has a lot of potential to be really cool but looks a little rough.

    Definitely Adrenaline. Slingshot just looks kinda odd with all the different shapes and gradients going on. I like what its trying to do but it didn't quite work.

    What the hell is slingshot? It looks like a Cartoon Network scheme went yellow-black colorblind.

    The other one doesn't look good either, for the same reasons the current scheme doesn't (bad fit for the car body).

    Stanley used to have some of the best schemes in NASCAR at Evernham/early RPM with the flames schemes, their efforts since 2011 have "fit" the brand better but the schemes just can't measure up.

    Those COT's where it looked like the front end was a mouth opening in the flames? Orgasmic

    I'm apparently going against the grain and picking Slingshot.

    Ha! This one will be close. I prefer Slingshot. Stanley looks cool over the pattern, but will probably be more readable over the black of Adrenaline.

    I prefer schemes that fit to the body, is actually a scheme and not something I can recreate within an hour, and still expresses the brand. For that reason, I prefer Slingshot. Yes, it's super busy in the back half of the scheme.... But considering the fact that we're in an era where plain, simple schemes are becoming the norm... I rather take something that stands out rather than something simple. That's not to say Adrenaline isn't simple (it isn't), but it doesn't fit the body of the car, which is one of my other 3 "rules" for schemes. Specifically on the nose of the car. Both do represent Stanley Tools imo, and both would look nice on track... I just feel Slingshot does a better job at fitting the car body and "pops" more than Adrenaline...

    This isn't DeWalt though, even thought they are both Black and Decker. The De Walt scheme will probably be different, and also has a different shade of yellow (or at least it did during the Ambrose days when you saw both colors on the same car and they were clearly different)
