Now the rule is you have to finish a course with what you started with for it to count, so from my thinking if all your recovery gear/scale items fall out you either leave it or it's a repair/touch to put it all on again, each time it happens.
If you leave it and the items would be counted towards your scale items then they will no longer count.

Agreed if it falls off then you dont get the scale points for it at the end.
Whether you pick it up or not.

No not as a touch, your just using your recovery equipment.


But it must go back on afterwards

the best thing about the comps is after each time you go home , you think off things to try and make your truck peform better , it dont have to be dear or skillfull just little tweaks to progress the truck and your driving skills in between the 10 gate comps every one always has fun and always playing about with the trucks,

only because homemade metal one can be made for max clearance
and not -9 metal -3 plastic
just my thoughts
