Default Iowa Ultimate Adventure / Top Truck Challenge

so whats everyone's thoughts on this ?
i am coping and changing a few things from the UTRCRC comp rules

Theme rules;
• Tires cannot exceed 4.5"
• Wheelbase cannot exceed 12.5"
• All rigs must have 10 scale points (See below)

Scale Points
Scale points are calculated based on the difficulty of applying them to the scale rig and the impact that the scale item has on the rigs performance. These points and scale items are not 100% inclusive and can be added too as you come up with more and more ideas. For this Adventure, all scale rigs must have 10 scale points in order to meet the Adventure Theme.

1 point - Front Bumper (must be attached to chassis)
1 point - Rear Bumper (must be attached to chassis)

1 point - Antennae (Maximum of 1)
1 point - Highlift Jack (Maximum of 1)
1 point - Air Can (Maximum of 1)
1 point - Non-Function winch (winch’s that are part of a lexan body are NOT applicable) (Maximum of 1)
1 point - Non-Functioning Lights (2 or more with a maximum of 1 point)
1 point - Side mirrors (Maximum of 6,849)
1 point - Sleeping bag, shovel, cooler (no more than 1 of these items will be counted)
1 point - Driver (Maximum of 1)
1 point - Exhaust

I'm kinda thinking more of a real looking... something that could still drive on the street kinda rigs...but like i said we need input what do you guys think... if a group in Iowa wants to have a comp... we could leave on a Friday night....get there set up a tent and camp and meet sat morning for a drivers meeting and then play/comp all day...grill/hang out and do a night crawl... maybe a finales Sunday morning then pack up and head for home

A Comp/GTG with a Truck show and judging? Then a trail run to test functionality of the scalers.
