I will be sending at least one car in to the Pro Basics division.

My kids' cars this year are not fit for the Scout races (heavy wheels, oil lubed), but since we skipped fenders this year, maybe I'll send them to the Basics division as well.

Speedster,
I would like to however it's only 10 1/2''
long and has 6 wheels.

So it falls short of the class b rules
At a min of 17" and max of 19"
with 8 wheels.
