As August comes to a close so does summer and you know what that means...back to school. Our feature race for August is our Back to School race. The theme of this race is buses. Your entry for this race needs to be a bus. School buses, city buses, double decker buses are all ok. No VW buses or drag buses though. The main color of the buses must be yellow. Either painted or stock. You can add flames, racing stripes, etc. You can also customize them for looks - big engines, spoilers, etc. Make these things look good!
Buses will race on a straight downhill gravity track. It will be the shelf track used for Hot Wheels Pick'em.
Weight : 100 grams or under.
Length: must be 4 inches or less
Height: must be 2 inches or less
Width: must fit on Hot Wheels orange track. (However, they will be racing on a Dragtracks track which is just a touch wider, but if something goes wrong, orange track is my back-up)
Dry lubes only
