I do hope not, as it should be about the driver and rig capabilty. And not how many roof racks, splodgets, and wrestlemania figures you can shove in on and around the rig

*takes wwe figures back to toys r us*
i agree there, but i think a nice and 'tastefully scale' looking truck should also get rewarded.
unless we do a vote, people put their trucks into the running and a vote is taken from everyone on the best looking truck, keep it seperate from the comp so that driver ability is still tested.

I don't have many scale points.. but I think we should still run them. I mean isn't that the point of a "scale" comp?

yeah .. i have to agree with DREADY on the its a scale comp and yes the sunday will be al about drivers and there rigs capabilities but as with all comp its knowing what your rig can do and driving the course that way.... and for the people that have got very detailed top heavy rigs then the scale points system is there to aid non competitive biased rigs , the end scores should be very even as the comp trucks will be ok through the course on not get as many points and the scale riggs will get points on the course but get some taken off for appearance.. here is a score sheet to show in advance exactly what we will be marking on.

-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.

Oh dear


And Dready, I dont care what I write on here or any other forum. I speak from my heart and for me.


Here is something to concider..

try attending or looking at a real 1/1 trial whether it be ARC or AWDC. You wont see rigs overloaded to the rooftops with gear. So why do it with a model trialer ?.
