I was intending to bring the "scale" rules in for the next one as I didn't want to bog people down with to many rules to begin with,

but thinking about it that was wrong as the two really need to be in place together to balance things out a bit.
Why not use the scale rules that are already available, I've put a copy at the bottom of this post.
Out of interest today I'll work out scale point for everyone and see if/how it affects the out
I know some pics where taken of the trucks on the table, could someone post one so I can check my memories right (and I know it won't be)

Couple of comments on your rules.


Right for the Offset if you use a Hardbody thats a Minus
If you run a Fully Leafed Rig thats also a Minus
Driver and an Interior also get you a Minus.
Scale bits Maximum of 5 again Minus.
Lights another Minus
Agree with all these


Running a Winch You get a Plus (but you can use it as much as you like no penaltys)
Reverse 1 Free then its a plus to a Maximum of 10
Is this +10 per gate or overall? Per gate then fine but it's not good for the whole thing as once you've got your 10 points you can reverse as much as you want for every other gate, it's hard enough designing a course as it is let alone trying to factor in unlimited reverses halfway though the course.
It also defeats the object of people having to use there brain on each gate as once you've got your 10 points they'll just do a 50 point turn through each gate rather than actually working out how to do it properly.
Why not have it as a maximum of +3 per gate?


Hit a Gate Same a Plus
Rollover that's a Plus winch it back no penalty Pick it up that's another plus
Dnf a stage thats a Plus (but all stage penalty's aren't added as well)
All we did was a DNF = gate+touch so 10 points, you can't really not count the points for attempting the gate otherwise people will look at a gate thing nah it's too hard and immediately just take 10 points rather than even trying.
But just to see it might be worth taking note of any extra points accrued before taking a DNF gate to see how it affects the score.


Two things I'd like to see to again even things up between towed to site rigs and driven rigs site :-
No bumpers +5 per bumper
Wheels fully outside body +5
Chassis not going over the axles +5


-------------------------------------

Scale appearance points will be deducted from the final score of each event. Appearance points are listed below.

-5 Points (up to a maximum of 20 points)
·Hard body (rigid construction, usually abs or polystyrene: essentially any body that is not lexan)
·Detailed Bed (drop beds, flat beds, tube beds: should be realistic representations)
·Interior detail (must have at least driver & passenger seat, dashboard, & steering wheel)
·Offroad trailer (must be towed during entire event)

-3 Points (up to a maximum of 15 points)
·Roof rack with large scale item (canoe or similar, item must be secured to rack with tie downs; no Velcro will be permitted.)
·Bed with large scale item (quad, dirt bikes or similar, item must be secured with tie downs; no Velcro will be permitted.)
·Realistic bumpers (point per bumper)
·Functional winch (per winch, front or rear)
·Functional spare tire (should be same size as being run on vehicle; i.e. no 1.9 spare on a 2.2 vehicle)
·Scale engine (i.e. Parma hemi)


-1 Point (up to a maximum of 10 points)
·Functional Lights (per set: Headlights / tail lights / roof / rollbar / crawling)
·Driver / Passenger figure (should be scale in size, in other words a 4 inch G.I. Joe figure in a 1/6 scale truck wouldn’t work. 1

point per person)
·Spare tire (non functional)
·Non Functional Winch (per winch, front or rear)
·Scale accessories (jerry cans, cooler, snatch straps, etc {multiples of a particular item will only score once: for example if you

have 2 jerry cans you will only score for 1 jerry can})


Custom Body Bonus: This bonus is awarded for custom build work done to a body, this ranges from stretching, widening, combining, and

scratch building. This is added on top of Scale points.

-5 points for any major custom body work (i.e. building a crew cab, grafting lexan and hard bodies*, etc)
-5 points for major tubular work. (i.e. full exocage, full tube chassis that supports and/or conforms to the body)
-10 points for scratch builds (i.e. building a body from the ground up; no OEM basis)

*50% rule applies to lexan/hard combos; in the case of a lexan/hard combo the body will be judged on the basis of whether it is more

than 50% lexan or more than 50% hard.
