what I see wrong with RTI points... ok if two truck, one get RTI points, other not, but what hapen if both truck with winch help drive all track clear????

I see in another forum scale rules, and what I find,
some limit for truck, but not points, example fully leafled truck can use tyre maximum height 115mm, not leafled truck can use maximum tyre height 100mm

I think good idea to make some restriction

Only problem with sundays course was the surface, replace it with compacted dirt and it would have been bloody superb.
It's still quite a learning process, dready almost certainly will run his truck over/through whatever he comes up with next to certain it's all ok, and me n jay won't make soft sand climbs without testing it first....live and learn

Right, I'm off to archery, see you guys in a couple of hours, be good

That's the idea so as to help trucks that don't perform as well, therefore evening things up a little between my truck and a stock cc01

But the less capable truck will have to use it's winch more or take more time, and tome now = points so again evening things out.

But people want to run what they have made, not have to go out and buy another set a tyres. Rules like that one just alienate people as it limits who can run.

So what ever rules you have, 90% is driving skill ,


And i really dont care what rules we have
That's how I feel, just like playing devils advocate really

I beg to differ and I'm sure Denty would too (both of us have done similar and prob' worse than all bar one gate in 1:1's) , but let's not go there eh.

Your not thinking Laterally.

Off the top of my head the seat doesn't fit right?

You'll need to cut away the bits in the way and remember Black paint is your best friend.


Start with a flat piece and cut out the tranny and motor so it fits over then build it up around it
Its all about an illusion if you looked at my latest you'll see two big holes at the front in the footwells.
Also the Tunnel can hide the motor quite easily.
Flip your tranny round so the spur is at the back motor down the centre it will make your life alot easier.
