SPICY CATEGORY [amateur] This category involves minor body alterations. The word here is "minor," such as adding a hood scoop or rear spoiler, changing engines, lowering the car or raising the suspensions. Any wheels are allowed from any manufacturer. [You must be the builder of your entries.]

HOT CATEGORY [amateur] This category is for customs that are extreme! Anything goes! From stretching, cutting, grafting, filling, chopping, shortening, mixing/adding body parts, changing suspensions, use of styrene, etc., use your imagination.

LARGE SCALE CATEGORY [open to all] This category is about cards or bikes by Hot Wheels that are larger than 1/64th scale. Example: It can be 1/43rd all the way to 1/18th scale. Anything goes! From a wild repaint, to body modification, to tricking out the engine. The entries must be based on a Hot Wheels casting. [You must be the builder of your entries.]

DIORAMA/DISPLAY/PACKAGING CATEGORY [open to all] Dioramas can be of anything you can imagine, such as a garage scene, landscapes, or a drag strip. It can also be based on custom packaging such as a new look on a blister-card to a custom box for the custom Hot Wheels or a nicely done display. Please keep the size of the Dioramas/Displays to approximately 20 x 20 inches to insure enough room on the judging table. [You must be the builder of your entries.]
