I'll call him right now to see if he can bring it


Also, looking forward to see how this format works..It would be great to see something work so well with less stress, paperwork,etc.etc.etc.

I also have one of those and will bring it if I can find it.

How long is quite some time?
We started using it in 06 during the Winter Series. At the time I we didn't know of anyone that had used a format like that yet. Anyway it's a good system.

I wish the time limits on the courses were a little longer so the TN guys could build some courses that make everybody say WTF were they thinking.But with 5min. no one would make it past the 5th or 6th gate.

Doesn't mean we can't make some 'normal' gates as well. You know, toward the end of the course.

you are right , with people driving / flying in ,spending no telling what to get here . 5 mins is a little short I think . but then again I think 8 mins is short (that's what we run SERCRC) .

Every Major Competition that I know of uses 5 minute time limits..... same as the easy Nationals courses With 90 trucks adding just 1 minute to the course adds 1 1/2 Hours to the event. There is only so many hours in the day, so unforutunitly we won't be able to build "TN Style" courses were you beat on 1 gate for 10 minutes until get a lucky bounce that finally gets you over the rock.

From 9:00 till Sunset there is 660 minutes of daylight

90 Drivers x 5 min course = 450 minutes
90 Drivers x 6 min course = 540 minutes
90 Drivers x 7 min course = 630 minutes

Its either 5 minute courses or somebody stays home, so the TN guys can build the style courses they want

I apolpogize in advance if the courses are too easy for any of you

2006, 2007 Nationals, 2007 West Coast Championship, 2007 Crawlerpalooza, and 2008 Mid-West all had 5 minute courses.



Its all right if your scared....Austin already said he wants to go first He asked me if he could drive all 3 back to back.

Dunn maybe DONE by 10:00!

Unless it is raining in the morning
