Default Activated Outlaw Comp Crawlers - Crawler Innovations Rule Set & Classes

The Activated Outlaw Rule Set is a venture Crawler Innovations is starting. For those that do not know, I (Eddie Ayala) am a former member of the USRCCA Rules Committee (United States Radio Controlled Crawling Association). I represented the state of Texas and the four clubs in operation during those years. Those four clubs would send the top five finishers of their point series in each class, to Texas state finals, where they would compete to determine the top 4 drivers in Texas to send to the U.S. National Championship. I have participated and judged many years of competition rc crawling. I am a founding member of ETXRCC (East Texas Radio Controlled Crawlers). I have been an event marshal at several national events. I have personally hosted many events for both competition and scale rc crawlers with some of those events having cash payouts. I created Crawler Innovations and have operated it nine years and counting. As a company, Crawler Innovations sponsors many competitions all over the world. A lot of thought, time, and consideration was put into creating this simple rule set. The competition classes are for comp crawlers. The activated classes are for scale crawlers. All classes use the same format.

Competition rc crawling has been struggling in the U.S. since 2013 and it is almost flat line now. Scale vehicles have taken priority through there ease of mass marketing and so have rules for them. Often times, by people with little to no experience with a sanctioning body, or rules based on one persons preference of look. The over regulation by local clubs or national sanctioning bodies, hurts cohesion in the hobby. Aggressive rules can limit creativity and create drama where there needs none. I'm not insinuating that the Activated Outlaw Rule Set is the total fix, but I know it is a step in the right direction towards fun and drawing in others. That is why these rules were created and posted. Hopefully they are simple, fair, and repeatable. If you or your club, or your hobby store would like to experiment and try them, even better. I have received mostly positive feedback from the many people that I sent these rules to for comment. I am open to constructive criticism of this rule set.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
