Who would like to join me in a more clearly defined class one, just for fun? The truck would have a hard body, chassis mounted servo and a control tyre. The tyre should be small, cheap and not too capable, such as the RC4WD Dirt Grabber that comes with Gelande 2 kits. It would clearly separate class one from class two and make the trucks challenging to drive. I'm open to other tyre suggestions. What do you think?

I get where you are going with this and agree with eveything except the hard body requirement, as this makes things even more expensive and might reduce who could take part?

To save any confusion later, we won't be changing the tyre rules for class 1 for the LSTR comps.

However if there is an appetite for people to either;
run on one style of tyre within class 1 the normal comps
or run a single tyre event on the play days

it would be interesting to see

If people don't like the hard body idea we can discuss other opinions. It was just an idea.

I had never heard of class 0. I just read the rules and it looks a bit too strict. I was hoping for something easy that most people could enter with a truck they already own just by getting some cheap tyres.

I went up to Leith Hill with the RC4WD marlin crawler. I’m honestly gob smacked at how capable it is with only a few basic, free suspension modifications. I got a lot of footage of the sections that were recently laid out (thanks to those of you who set the courses up - awesome as always!) I will post the videos up here as I edit them, here’s the first on the rocks section in the middle of the area

I've spoken to six drivers who want to run with my idea of slightly changed class one rules which are a hard body, a chassis mounted servo and a control tyre. Most suggested the RC4WD Mud Thrashers so that is my tyre suggestion and what I'll be buying. Somebody suggested that we call it class 0.5 and I like that name. There were suggestions of further restrictions but I hope we can keep it as simple as this and just have fun with it.

Default Winter fun day

I'd wish there would be winter fun day with some snow for RC trails,

but still accesible for us with normal 2wd cars on summer tires.


I keep watching this all over and dreamin

Yes, theese are cool
... but no offense, I thing that all TRX4 should have their own comp class,
as those are too cabaple comparing to traditional models.

Surely more similar RTRs will start poping out soon all over,
which will start pushing traditionaly built scale models into vintage category.
