Vehicle requirements for Top Truck Challenge event
- Top Truck rigs will be required to have a minimum of 10 scale points and no more then 40 will be given. Each scale point will be equal to .5 seconds off of the total time of the day.

Vehicle suggestions for Top Truck Challenge event
-Your vehicle will get wet and muddy, therefore it is highly suggested to be waterproof.
-It is suggested that the vehicle has a working winch, no buddy assistance will be allowed.
- This event will test the limits of the vehicles, therefore it is suggested to make the strongest vehicle possible.
- Mud is sticky, therefore it is suggested that wheel speed and torque be of high concern when preparing your vehicle.
-Be prepared to get wet, have fun, laugh and break some parts!

General scoring and course progress for Frame Twister, Rock Crawl and Tank Trap:
- Gates and boundaries if hit will be a 30 second penalty.
- If a course can not be completed the driver must call out to stop time, all gates left will be added to the time the vehicle was on course, 1 gate left is equal to a 1 minute time penalty.
-winching, rear steer, dig and reverses are all allowed and are not penalized.
-winching must be off a fixed object or a rig, no assistance is allowed during the winching progress, nor is anyone allowed to be touching the line or hook when winching.

EX: If 3 gates are left = 180 seconds (3 minutes) + the driver stopped time at 120 seconds (2 minutes) they would have a total time of 300 seconds for that course.

- If the course was completed, then no penalty will be issued for non completed gates and the final score will be the time on course (unless a gate or boundary was hit).

Out of bounds markers and Gates:
-Out of bounds markers (such as gates and rope line) will be used to show a course outline, in the event that one of these is hit a 30 second penalty will be given, this applies to the Frame Twister, Tank Trap and Rock Crawl only. If a rope line is tangled on a vehicle time can be stopped to untangle the line, the judge will therefore allow the vehicle to be picked up to untangle. The vehicle will then be replaced in a similar location on course by the judge. In the case of a gate a vehicle will have to be driven out of the obstacle and back to the course, time will not stop for any other reason then a tangled line. A gate may be straddled for progress of the course, but a 30 second penalty will be assessed.

General scoring and progress for Hill Climb, Mud Pit and Tractor Pull:
-When marking progress on course, 1 inch is equal to 2 seconds.
-When scored on the mud pit, hill climb and tractor pull distance will be measured from the end of the prescribed area and from the back of the farthest back tire from the end of the course.
- If a boundary marker is hit on the Mud Pit, Hill climb or Tractor Pull The vehicle will be stopped as will time.
-The time on course will added to the distance not traveled (measured by inches), the distance will be measured from the farthest back tire on the course to the finish line.
- If the course is completed time on course will be your score.
-winching is not allowed.
-Reversing is not allowed

EX: If the driver stops time after 5 seconds and there was 72 (144 seconds) inches left of the course their total would be 149 seconds for that course.

I'm completely new to TTC competitions of any kind...but I'm determined to be there...

i currently have nothing that would be legal. so I'm on the hunt.


help me with the classes...reading the rules i cant tell where the break is between the classes (if there is one)

also can you run more than one truck in a class? Assume you can since only one person runs at a time...but figured I'd ask


now to find a truck to modify....



EDIT: ok ive read the rules a few times over. am i right that there are two classes? Modified and "stock"?

2d/half interior 1
d rings 2
winch 2
headlights 2
tail lights 2
pull pal 1

Cage 1
light bar 1
rocksliders 1
METAL bumper 3
stinger(if you have it) 1
2D INT 1
Headlights 1
tail lights 1
FRT winch 3

Funtional items:
d-rings 2 (if you have 4, 2 d-rings = 1 point)
pullpal 1
tow strap 1 (even if you don't have one there will be extras at the event)

NON functional:
steering wheel 1

18 if this list of stuff is correct.. your truck is legal and if for some reason you don't meet the scale point requirement there is always a TON of people to help you meet it along with a TON of extras throughout us all.
