Yes I have been studing the rules on previous pages and If there is a change I definatly like to know.

As for the time I have to drive 1 1/2 hours, so make the sing ins flexable. I am a late bird.

What do you guys think about the UTRCRC rules? I like them and more so what there about, having fun.

This quote is from the Compitition Rules thread:

Look most of you will be totally unhappy with any rule set that goes into effect so it really doesn't matter which set of rules are used.

I applaud all the guys out there creating all the different types of crawlers and we are in no way trying to stunt the growth of the sport. However there must be limitations to these vehicles. As such UTRCRC will come up with our own set of rules. Yes they will have body limitations, truck specs, gate specs, course specs etc....They will be simple, fair and to the point. If your unhappy with them, then those of you that are running the competitions can modify or use a completely different set of rules 8O . Good on you for doing so....

All the feedback on this forum has been great! Okay, so not all, but most. It's funny how this sport has become so competative. UTRCRC will do our best to keep the fun in this sport at our meets. I think the best way to occomplish this is to no longer offer awards to the top three finishers. Points for bragging rights seems to be good enough. We will continue having the Moab event, but the awards may or may not happen. I found that it was more fun to shoot the bull than competing anyway.

For years I raced R/C, and as I became more and more serious about racing and traveling to Nats and other large races the fun quickly faded away. This is the exact opposite of what we would like to see happen.

Good luck with establishing the rules.

I would need to see a copy of the UTRCRC rules, Why dont you post them on this thread and we will see if they work. I could search but there is a chance I could goof. If you do it then it is what you are talking about. But lets see

Let's just use the rules from before add another judge or two and run with it. I see no reason to change anything this early on. It's comp #2 not 20.

I don't know how many times I have mentioned that the main objective is to have fun. When everyone wants to, I guess we can nail down the "rule" subject. It really should not be this hard.

Here are the rules from the last Seascape comp.

Edited:
**I deleted the old rules as skyjacker has posted updated ones below. **

when i first typed it There were some problems.

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.

Does this mean you cannot backup at all? I like how other rule sets allow you to reverse the length of the vehicle without obtaining any penalty points.

What do you guys think?

Brian my point was to give you some slack not to piss you off. To do what you do you must have thick skin and take everyones opinion with a grane of salt. I run Fast electric races , It is fun a lot of work and some times it gets old. But some one has to do it. So Hang in there and do not give up.
