Default Team L.E.R.K. presents Club VS. Club 1.9 Scaler Challenge info

Team L.E.R.K. Presents
Club VS. Club
1.9 Scaler Challenge



This comp will be a 1.9 scaler challenge that will push or rigs and driving skills to the limits against other club teams. The format we will use is just like any other Team L.E.R.K. event 4-6 courses with each course having 10-30 gates that have a set time limit and are scored (see course points and penalties below). Some of the obstacles and challenges that you will experience are bonus courses, bonus lines, two-lap course, bridges, Tonka Tug, spare tire changes, hill climbs, reverse driving, and some really CHALLENGING lines were you may need to use your winch, ohh and we cant forget about the wet stuff!

So the way it will work is your club team has to have a captain, you can have as many guys on your team as you want but a minimum of three is mandatory. The three members from each team with the best total scores for the day will be added up and the lowest total score will win the Club VS Club competition. A trophy and most importantly bragging rights for the next year will be given to the club team with the lowest score. Fore those of you that are not part of a club this would be a great time to meet some of the guys from your area and maybe even join their club at this event. In the case you want to just run as an individual there will be 1st,2nd, and 3rd place individual awards as well. You can use your score in both competitions as well, so you can use your score for the team award and win an individual award.

This type of event will consist of some major duties especially the end of the day scoring. So it would be great if each club would pinch in with some help. WE CAN ALLWAYS USE JUDGES. On some of the longer courses we would like to have two scoring judges to keep the flow moving. I would also like a club or two to come up with some course ideas. If your club has a cool bridge or idea you use at your comps please feel free to bring it out and we will see if we can utilize it.

Please use this thread for info and questions a sign up thread will be posted soon. This will give some time to the guys that need to find a local club or team to rep if they don't all ready have one.

We highly recommend that your rig is waterproofed and you have a functioning winch.

The Mandatory Stuff:
• 1.9 tires only (no cut and shuts)
• 5 scale items
• Working spare tire
• Tow Strap
• No comp chassis
• Rig must appear scale and something you would see on the trail

We want to make this a fun annual scale event in Cali. So with the help of all teams and clubs I believe we can achieve that. I also believe with the help of some sponsors it would raise the interest in this event even more. With that being said we are looking for sponsors for this event to help establish this annual scale comp and in time draw other clubs from out of the area or state. If you would like to donate please pm me to work out the details. No donation is to small and all donations would be greatly appreciated .

Some Donation Ideas:
  • Event Trophies
  • Event Sponsor
  • Give away Items
  • Vendor Products
  • Banners
  • Boundry Markers and Gates
  • Stickers
  • Promo Products from Vendors
  • Gift Certificates
  • Hobby Shop Promos

Nice, not sure what I can do with the local hobby shops as we have been talking to them about our series. I know for sure we can donate some gift certs for entry in the rcotc comps if you want? The only thing up here is they all prefer the G6 format so I'm hoping to convince them to give this a try

Thanks Martin, as far as the G6 format goes they are great! But there will only be one G6 and i cant take that away from Parker or even come close to his course knowledge and set up so i'll leave that up to him. Just let the guys know that this event may challenge there rig in a whole different way. Ohh and remind them that they are toy trucks and we just want to have fun!

Everyone will have there format preference in this hobby, and thats the reason why i like the scalers so much. One weekend i can take it to a G6 the next to a RCOTC event and the next weekend one of our scaler events. The reverse penalty will really make you think about your driving and the lines you take the first time. I have seen major events lost by a couple of reverses. You can always trail run with your boys and not get penalized for the reverses any given day, but its not everyday that you may "compete" against some of the other club members and there nationally ranked drivers.

Really hope to see you there!

Well said finishline, although the scale part of the hobby is a bit more relaxed having some limits on reverses and equipment will help a driver to be a better one. Miss running your series, you guys do a great job.

Awesome I can say from experience, Team Lerk are a great bunch of guys and it's always fun to run with them no matter what the format is. Besides, it's good to mix it up a little

Thank you for the kind words brother! We have always tried to make our events, small or big as fun as possible.

Watch this video and at around 2:50 ask yourself can a 1:1 rig really right itself without a winch while laying on its side like we do with or RC rigs. Well this Guy thinks so
