WHEEL MODIFACTIONS
Wheel treatment may assume any of the form as long as they are the original wheels from the kit.

SIZE AND DESIGN Cars must fit track. Cars must not damage track. As long as they are the original wheels from the kit. Subject to the discretion of the Inspection and Race Committee Judges present during the registration and inspection process and races.

*Adults may enter an “outlaw” car with the two following rules: 1) must be safe for the track and Scouts and 2) length/width dimensions (so that it will fit on the track and clear the timing mechanism).   Anything else (including power assist) is ok.  Any questions, please ask David Hetherington or Bhavana Gunukula!

Notes

There will be at least 2 organized workshops (volunteer parents will make their garage, saw and general tools available) that we would be organizing before race day. If you wish to help organize or have tools to share, please send mail to David Hetherington or Bhavana Gunukula through scouttrack. We will be sending out update emails with dates and addresses to all registered parents.
