Wheelbase is the stock position for that mower.

The stock wheel base can be longer than 39". The rules for FXS are a minimum of 39", FXT has a minimum of 42". If you think you might want to move up in class later on you might want to keep that in kind. Most current chassis are in the 42-47" range. My current pan chassis (older Crafsman) FXS build is around 43" just leave the axle in the stock location and you will be fine.

You never win a race by focusing on one aspect of the race!  Motor isn't everything, but you better have a good one!  Chassis too!  But remember, a driver can take a slow machine and make it faster!  I may not have/be the best of any of these but I'm trying!
