I would so build a ttc truck if we did something like that. halfway through the month so didnt interfere with regular classes or something...
i think you could run all 3classes ,but it would suit class 3 trucks more
i think chris at docklands would like to run a TTC if there was enought interest
i'd give it a go but not the mudbog run cos the wraith is a pain in the a** to clean

Its not a TTC without every element lol! gotta get wet, durty and beat up on the way round i reckon!!

I think chris could pull that off, just change the gates each time and you would have loads of different courses in the same area. But those trucks arent class 3 are they? They had rear stear and dig too probably?! Is that all allowed in class 3? Or is TTC a whole seperate class?

in class 3 its allowed to have either rear steering or dig. you can use them but its like using the winch in other classes you get a point every time u use it.

Well I would if I knew that others were going to do it as well.

Just a side note you can still run 1.9's in Class 3

Towing is tractor pull sledge, the weight moves forward along the sledge over the friction plate as it is pulled down the course, reckon the mog could do that bit

I would fancy having a go at TTC, must have some axles about somewhere.

But if we dont have a sledge a dead weight on a slope works the same .
As the slope gets steeper it gets harder to pull.

Dig/Rear Steer (Class 3 only): (5 pts) Dig and rear steer are both legal in Class 3, but only one may be
used per course. The first use of dig or rear steer will incur a +5 point penalty; subsequent uses of the
same feature (dig or rear steer) on the same course are free. Use of the other feature is prohibited. If at
any time on the same course the driver uses rear steer after using dig, or uses dig after using rear steer,
a reposition penalty will be incurred, and the truck will be placed at the last cleared gate.

Any chance we could have a stick thread with scale and comp rules, so it is easy to reference.
