I know that I am a newbee but once a date is set then people get days off in advance and when you flip flop back and forth it screws them up. I know Tom C that has just finished moving has been looking foward to a few weeks to finish a new rig. I would be able to make it either way but prefer the time to prepair and not be in a rush.

i posted it a ways back but wheels was bringing it up at the pratice so good thing i posted it again. more then a few people were not going to be able to make the event. If you cant make this date SEP. 25th speak up now. We have to see who can go and who cant. But i cant sway everyone so its up to the mob.

If we have it the 9th these are the people that will not make it:
skyjacker
westcoastcrawlers
guru
rckjeep
badger
wheels

I deffinately can not make the 25th I am building my truck and it will not be ready before this weekend. I was under the impression that it was set for the 9th of Oct. So no for me on the 25th.

skyjacker,

I don't know where you read that I can't make it on the 9th, I said I CAN make it. I also can make it on the 25th but do not like the flip flopping of the dates.

You guys should have done a check to see who can/cannot make it before you set a date.

So are some of you still going this Sat. the 25? regardless of the comp date? If so I would like to go.

1beatjeep,

If this comp is going to be on the 9th who is going to judge since skyjacker cannot make it?

Also, since were on the subject of change, why not have the comp in Moutain View (bigred's location) instead of Seascape? I thought I heard from a few people that they liked bigred's location better because it was more scale and not rediculously large rocks. I don't think a location change is as bad as a date change, so that is why I am asking.

im at seascape crawling every weekend anyways. so im down for what ever, when ever, where ever.

the best tool in crawling is not giant tires, hot suspension or low winding motors it comes down to rock time. lol

Badger sea scape is big but the rock have insane grip so you will see your car do things you never knew it could. there are also endless amount of trail runing through the rocks you just need to find them. i like big reds spot and would like to have a comp there one day it more of a river rock well it is a river lol.

Except for Oct 9th.

1beatjeep,
I can make it on Oct. 16, I will see if my friend can go as well.


Wheels, a trail ride this Sat. the 25 sounds good to me, I was hopeing to have a bumper similar to yours so I could help out pulling but thats cool. Just watching people get pulled out of being stuck is cool enough!

Well I can't make the 9th for sure and I could but should really work on the 1:1 Jeep till the ninth.

Plus I just cut off my lower tranny mount on my TXT today. I'll most likely get it done before this weekend but you never know.

i couldnt find the post here you go. :(

General Rules
Scoring starts at 0pts
Winner is decided by the driver with the most points at the end of the competition
Maximum neg points per gate (-100pts) - except if gate is skipped, then its (-110pts)
Broken parts may be fixed mid course, but if a vehicle can finish broken, hell yeah. Now that's course committment
Gates must be completed in numerical order and in the direction of the course design. No driving to the opposite side of the gate and coming through.


Penalty Points
1 - Reverse "backing up" (-5pts) - Note, entering the course backwards to align up for an obstacle better instantly assesses the reverse penalty.
2 - Rollovers requiring assistance (-20pts) - Vehicle must be placed back on wheels where it landed. If its impossible to drive out of that position, the closest driveable location will be used with another 1pt penalty
3 - Vehicle stuck (-10pts) - When a vehicle is stuck on an obstacle, the minimum amount of movement needed to free the vehicle is allowed with the penalty Movement must be in backwards to the direction of the course. So a driver cannot move the vehicle further forward to be freed.
4 - Hit Gate (-20pts)
5 - Skipped gate (-110pts)
6 - Missed course (Maximum course points based on Skipped gate penalties)

Non Penalty Points
1 - Stops (No Penalty) since a stop really doesn't aide the driver that much.
2 - Rollovers and recovering without assistance (No Penalty)

Bonus Points
1 - Progression gates. (100pts) Each gate is a progression through the course
2 - Bonus lines. (150pts) A course may have a more difficult bonus line that can be attempted, but is not required. However, it would be an alternate to a standard gate.

Course Design
Gates (cones, should be placed in a way where they aren't the obstacle to climb but dictate the course. So it shouldn't be a battle of cones, but a battle of the obstacle.
Gates should be not be narrower than 30 inches apart. The gates define the course designers path.

Vehicle Requirements
Currently Open, but as events occur, a pattern will be seen to where classes should be broken up.
