One of our club members suggested have the rules state that the inside edge of the tires must be covered by the body. Since tube beds are allowed maybe the rule should state the inside of the front tires must covered by the body.

I'm sick as a dog, so if this is already well covered, don't mind me.

I agree. The tyres can't be completely outside of the body when viewed from above.

We spent pages on relatively minute details to keep things "street legal" as possible, but if we let the trucks arrive looking like Monster Trucks on transport wheels, I think we missed something...

this got covered early on some bodies are smaller then others blackfoot f350 you are all but banning them by creating this rule.. yes I know the MRC is out and it is possible now.. but that doesnt mean someone should have to rebuilt there stock high lift to compete..

really this just a looks thing when you get down to it.. you can set up two trucks exactly the same chassis wise and use small body A which the tires poke out on. body B the tires may completely tuck there is no real performance edge..

I'm in favor of having the wheels tuck in, but we shouldn't make it mandatory. I think the inner-sidewall rule is enough. If you've got to have a Blackfoot you can always use TLT axles and narrow-offset wheels. Forcing more coverage would limit the BF to a TA0x chassis, and even there you need the right wheels to get tuckage.

This would fall with in the "Sum of all it parts" if it looked really out of whack then the presiding club would make a determination on it.

Ok, I just thought it open to the "It's not in the rules" thing.

When I work up the final rules sheet once all is said and done, I'll add the notation that the host club determines "sum of all it's parts" mantra can be enforced. That would mean the TXT Lunchbox would be ruled upon by the host club.

Has adding weight been brought up? This brings up a lot of debate in our group and most of us tend to agree that adding axle or wheel weights shouldn't be allowed. If a person feels they must add weight to a scale truck, add it to the frame or body.

Hasn't come up yet, but feel free Around here we typically add 3 oz or so to each wheel. MSD rules spec 12 oz max added for all 4 wheels, and I think that's a pretty fair rule.

There's just so much of an advantage running weight over someone that doesn't. And you don't see it on street legal trucks either.

The other large debate is when to winch or not. Most of us agree that in the real world you winch yourself or a buddy out of trouble have a good laugh and continue on. It should be the same here. You wouldn't limit yourself in the real world... If anything you should be promoting people to winch in the proper situation.
