  • Are the new colored wheels legal for the Blackhawk 500? They are not found directly in “the kit” but they are sold separately in the scouting stores. They seem to be exactly the same as the black wheels except for the color.
    Answer: New colored wheels sold at BSA Scouting Stores is OK to use.

  • Can my son and I take some of the weights off his winning car from last year (Tiger Cub division) and use them on a new car? Or must every item on the new car be brand new. We are thinking of unscrewing three tungsten plates to reuse/recycle them on a new car. The body, wheels, axles, etc. will be all new for this year.
    Answer: In the interest of conservation (reduce, reuse, and recycle), it should be OK as weights are not moving parts, however if the weight is part of the decorations or a major part of the aerodynamics, then it should not be used.

  • It seems to me that prior rules specified that no spaces be used between the wheels and the car body. Is that correct? I did not see it in this years rules.
    Answer: Rule 2.7 = Hubcaps, washers, inserts, sleeves, and bearings may NOT be used in conjunction with the wheels and/or axles.  Space is OK.

  • The rules state that new axle holes may be drilled and that the axle to axle distance remain the same. Is there a specification an to where the axle holes must be in relation to the end of the car? I.e., can one retain the same "wheel base", but move the base towards the rear of the car?
    Answer: You can move the rear axel as far back as you want, however the length of the car (which includes the body and wheels) still needs to be within 7 inches in length.

  • My son finished his last pack race a couple of weeks ago and will bridge over to Boy Scouts before the Blackhawk 500 on April 25th. One of our pack leaders suggested my son give the Blackhawk 500 a shot but I checked the rules and am not sure he is eligible to compete. Could you please clarify this?
    Answer: Your son can participate in the Blackhawk500 event. He would enter as a Webelos II. He can also participate as a boy scout in our open class as well.

  • Is the BH 500 open to any cub that wants to pay the registration or only the winners from our Pack?
    Answer: All Cubs from within the Council are invited to participate.
