Of course, I find this AFTER I clutter up your thread. Any more info here? Timing, scoring, etc. are gray areas for me. Have a few local friends "interested," but needing a little more info on the layout of an event. No serious planning yet. Wandering who is going to actually show up.

We are updating the rules for 2015. Now trying to make a decent english version of them too. Sounds lot easier than it is.

Pardon the pun but I can dig it.Checking out all the builds that i see i think were on to something so I'm in and I should have enough parts to rig up something.looking at all the Foff rides it almost remines me of rats rods,parts bin from every crawler kit available
What would be better choice for a starting point SCX10 frame,Wraith, or AX10.
Could this be the next big thing.

I've really taken a liking to the FOFF's since i've seen them. never saw them until Samu posted pics of them on facebook recently and i was blown away by what they can do.

If i wasn't about to build my first pro rig, i'm sure i would be starting to build one of these...but i think in the mean time it wouldn't hurt to find a decent truggy frame to get the juices flowing for an eventual 1/8 build.

These have been the only rigs that have bitten me like the pro/sports class crawlers..not quite as much as crawlers...but a close second for sure.

I've never been one to bash, but these are different and would be interesting to see if FOFF could or would take off here in my country, we have plenty of beaches so would be great to have some summer season's of some FOFF action for sure. But regardless i would love to build a FOFF once the pro is all finished and tuned.

Unlimited class looks like fun, so i have a lot of reading and learning to do.

What motors are used mostly for the Unlimited FOFF's?

Is brushless the way to go, or can brushed motors be used also?

Unlimited we have castle 1:8 motor 2200kv or 2650kv brushless.
Brushless is the only way to FOFF

Modified class (1:10) we have 3000 - 6000kv brushless motors.
I have castle 4600kv motor my cars and couple my friends have 5700kv.

So is class by tire size? I have another build that uses the same carbon chassis but is the LST stock 14.2'' wheel base. It still uses the Summit transmission but also has the large tires I could cut some 2.2 tires to fit the Slash style wheels to get the same tire size though.
But as a hole I think that the unlimited class is the way to go as it has all the cool stuff that is fun to run!

I believe you need solid axles to qualify no independent suspension....
Plus this is an old thread...
