Re: Ultimate Scale Truck Expo 2017
• What is “Ultimate Scale Truck Expo” ?

Ultimate Scale Truck Expo is an immersive event designed to give back to the attendee. Unlike other events that are based around a competition, Expo is based around learning and skill building. Competition and driving take a side seat to hearing some of the brightest folks in the scale R/C industry talk about how they do what they do. There will be demonstrations and maybe hands-on learning of scale building skills. Expo is also a much more relaxed atmosphere with plenty of time for attendees to network and get to know other hobbyists. There is also the opportunity for attendees to have face to face interactions with the best vendors in the industry.
It is our hope and goal for attendees to leave the Expo inspired with new methods and skills for building scale R/C vehicles. It is also our hope to provide a venue for vendors and hobbyists’ to be able to have one on one, meaningful, in person interactions. Lastly it is our goal to promote our hobby in a meaningful, relaxed, friendly environment that encourages family involvement.

• What do we offer the attendee?

We offer the attendee the opportunity to meet first hand, some of the best builders in the hobby. We also offer them the opportunity to learn and interact with these builders during presentations. We offer a relaxed venue to hangout and interact with other hobbyist and vendors. This event does not solely focus on scale crawlers. There will be a rally course and possibly drift area as well. We will offer friendly, relaxed, off road courses that focus on the scale realism of peoples R/Cs. We will offer a variety of other family friendly activities on site as well.

Here are some of the events happening at the Ultimate Scale Truck Expo

...10 Skill building presentations from the best builders in our hobby

Re: Ultimate Scale Truck Expo 2017
• Where is it going to be and when?

The Expo is scheduled for March 16th-18th 2017. This time of year in Florida the weather is very mild and favorable for outdoor activities. The location for the Expo is central Florida, near Williston. We have secured a Botanical Garden and repurposed rock quarry. This quarry provides unique terrain that is not found anywhere else in Florida. It provides a very photogenic back drop for scale photography and videography. The terrain is also challenging enough to make driving fun and interesting.
There is plenty of nearby lodging and other activities. Other attractions include….Devils Den Springs, Ocala National Forest, Disney World theme parks, dozens of natural springs, gulf fishing, Cape Canaveral (NASA), swimming with manatees and many others.

We want folks to be able to take something home from the Expo. Something real and valuable. So we decided to ask some of the best builders in the hobby to share their skills and ideas with you. They will hopefully help to inspire and improve your skill sets so when you get home, you can build a better, more scale rig. Not only are they gonna speak to you, they are going to be around for you to meet and ask questions in a face to face setting. Learn from the best in person.

Here is a list of our AWESOME presenters and their topic for discussion.

"Imthatguy" Matt Kett

Andy Lowry

Tim Samuels

Re: Ultimate Scale Truck Expo 2017
Hi folks,

I have had more than a couple people ask me about what is included in the price of the tickets. So I will try to address that here.

The single day driver ticket and full Expo trail pass include the same things. The only difference is if you want 1 day entry or the whole 2.5 day Expo. The following is included in these tickets.

All 7 scale crawler courses. Over 1,000 gates

Entry into the GCM Gallery

All presentations on the day of your purchased tickets

Admittance to the vendors area

Access to the Rally course except when "Hot Laps" are running

Admission to the Botanical Gardens

Participation in the Pic contest

Eligibility in giveaways

Access to 1:1 vehicle displays


Things that are NOT included and must be purchased separately...

The Night Run.... This is a super cool small group event that will definitely be worth your while. Super limited entry so get these quickly.
Also, if you wanna run with your buddies....buy your tickets in the same group.

Flat Lander Drags.... This is a competition with awesome prizes awarded to the winners. It will not be easy. All you have is your driving skill to rely on. You won't even need a truck......
We will have stock RTR trucks that will be the vehicle you drive during the drag AND they will be given to the winners at the end.
