Aloha Drivers and welcome to the 5th year of the Crawl Space Scale Adventure Series!

A Scale Adventure is just like the name implies, Adventure.

Drivers will navigate their scale rigs through a course marked with numbered gates over various terrain from start to finish. Course time limit: 3-4 hours depending on terrain and location.

Drivers will also be given a mission to complete along with completing the course.

The Driver Mission will be outlined at the Drivers meeting before the start of the course.

Drivers must collect items to complete their mission. Mission Items will be spread out along or close to the course, so keep your eyes peeled

Bonus items will be placed along the course as well, collect only one of each bonus item to apply to your overall score.

Once your mission items are collected and any bonus items complete the course and check in at base camp to turn in your items and get your score for the day.

Classes.
Trucks will be divided into the standard SORRCA Class specs, Class 1, 2 and 3.

Scale Adventure Rig Requirements.
-A scale vehicle must be 1/10 car / truck with a scale chassis or custom tube scale chassis. No TVP chassis' (Twin Vertical Plate) comp crawlers, Gen2 AX10's, etc.

-Tires may be 1.55, 1.9, or 2.2, but must be a licensed manufactured tire or knock offs. Tires must resemble the real thing and can be siped or grooved.

-Minimum 10 scale points.

-A tow strap is mandatory and can be used to self recover your truck or other Drivers rigs.

-A winch is not mandatory, but highly recommended.

-Waterproofing is not mandatory, but highly recommended.

-All scale recovery items/tools, must be attached to the vehicle and after their use, be placed back on the vehicle. This includes sand ramps, tow straps, and hi-lift jacks. Real tools may be carried by the driver.

-Class 3 trucks are allowed to use dig and/or 4 wheel steering on course without penalty.

Entry Fees and Standard Event Times

$10 per Driver.
10am check-in, 10:45am drivers meeting and mission outline. 11am course opens.

Scale Adventure Rules 2017
Rule #1. HAVE FUN! This is not a race, the driver that has the most fun wins in the end. Drivers must navigate the course with integrity. If you hit a gate on course, replace the gate and attempt it again for a clean progress and mark the gate penalty on your score card.


Rule #2. Safety.
Beware of your footing, your surroundings and others around you. One bad slip can ruin anyones day. Young ones may be running in the event so please watch them as well. If you get hurt to the point of needing care please report back to Base Camp and we will attain to the situation.


Rule #3. Team Up. We encourage drivers to help each other through the course and collect items to complete their mission. New drivers are always coming out to the events so lets give them a hand so they can have fun with the adventure.


Rule #4 Mission Items.
Each driver must collect their own set of Mission Items to complete their mission. Mission items must be carried on the scale rig at all times, no pockets. and keep an eye out for bonus items, they will be applied to your score.


Rule #5. NO HAND OF GOD.
(HOG) A driver may not assist, stop, catch, or kick his/her vehicle. There are no penalties for reverses, winching or self recovery winching so DRIVE SMART!

Performing on course repairs, changing batteries or having to touch your vehicle for recovery purposes is not hogging.

Picking up your rig out of water, mud, sand or rolling it over onto its wheels with your hand are all examples of hogging your vehicle and resulting in a disqualification penalty. You must report back to Base Camp in the event of HOG and mark the last gate you progressed.


Rule #6. Penalties. Drivers will incur a 10 point penalty for each gate that is touched on course. Drive will incur a 1 point penalty for self recovery with a tow strap. Be sure to mark all penalties on your score card. Drivers may use their winch or tow rope to another truck to recover their rig without penalty.


Rule #7. Course Direction. A driver can not drive through a gate & reverse backthrough it to avoid trail obstacles. This will result in a DQ. A course is directional & must be progressed in the intendeddirection of travel. Reversing through the trail marker in the intended direction is ok & allowed during reverse sections.

If you break and can not complete the course mark the last gate you progressed and report back to BaseCamp and turn in your score card. Return the items collected. Mission and bonus item points are awarded only if you complete the entire course.

Be sure to fill out your score card completely and turn it in to be scored, no score card no score.

Scoring and penalties.
Self recovery with a tow strap: 1 point penalty for each self recovery.

You must have all your mission items to complete the course. Driver with the lowest time, all their Mission Items collected and any bonus items gets first place, second lowest time and all Mission Items collected gets second place, etc.

Please post up if you have any questions, comments or concern.

Is there a place big enough for me to park my truck with a 40 ft trailer hooked to it. Thinking about coming to watch the comp since I can be in the area. If not no big deal.
