 "SoHo Writer's Showdown"
See also: Writer's Block
On May 20, the "SoHo Writer's Showdown" was held by Scopes on territory belonging to the Hi-Hats. The Panzers were one of the four gangs that participated in the Showdown, competing against The Warriors, Moonrunners and Electric Eliminators. The Panzers were represented by their artist C-Style and two other members of the gang, although they were defeated as the contest was won by The Warriors and their artist Rembrandt.
As Scopes announced The Warriors as the victors, he was thrown from the top of a scaffold by members of the Hi-Hats. Chatterbox, the leader of the Hi-Hats, then appeared, declaring his disgust at the gangs who had taken part in the contest. A large group of Hi-Hats surrounded the Panzers and the other gangs, before ambushing them. As the Panzers fought against the Hi-Hats and the other gangs, The Warriors were able to escape to a roof across from where Chatterbox stood on the scaffolding. The Warriors used projectiles such as bricks to knock a piece of scaffolding down onto Chatterbox, who then suffered a large fall into the courtyard. The Panzers and the other gangs were left behind as the Hi-Hats then pursued The Warriors across a set of SoHo Rooftops.
 Battling the Hurricanes
Around the time of the SoHo Writer's Showdown, a group of Panzers made their way to the Stripes and Solids, a club in Spanish Harlem. In the club, the group of Panzers were defeated by Diego, a large member of the Hurricanes, and his younger brother Vargas. The Panzers' defeat was later mentioned by the D.J. on the gang radio station.
