I like it 2.2 without the MOA "its about the driver not the equipment crowd".

But unfortunatly as I have stated before these things work best when planned way in advance not enough warning for us. :-(

Default Not stepping on toes Just want to wheel more!!!!!

I love to wheel my trucks and I got too many not to.
I would like to get some new blood wheeling. Have some classes that people can get excited about.

Also will have trophies for first place in the Pro and Amature 2.2 comp classes. My buddy owns a trophy shop.

I want to have one big event a year in Duluth and this will be a start. So show up and have some fun!!!!

I hope to draw some more locals around here who would like to try crawling....with out getting crushed so bad they won't want to go again.

Oh yeah there will be three course per class.

Look next year for two in Duluth and one a Taylors for a Triple Crown series.

So, if this is shafty only, how do you hope to integrate this with existing MNRCRC activities?

I understand your motives, but this could undermine our existing USRCRC recognized club.

I can only run two classes but I'd like to see this pulled off. Maybe run a sportsman, pro, and open class for 2.2.

Eather this year or next, I'm willing to run

Guys, in the other Duluth thread I told Kwapi that he could plan the Sat event. (here) I'm looking forward to this. We haven't had any scaler events all year. The Tuff Truck and scaler classes should be sweet.

Kwapi, any interest in a 1.9 tuff truck? Maybe combine the scaler classes with the tuff truck? My Landy wants to play.

sure now I start to build a dig rig and you want to do a no dig class

just kidding, I'll be lucky to have it working anyways. Don't think I'll make it sat., to many pets to be gone for the weekend, but I should be there Sunday.

those events sound fun as hell, would be fun, maybe next yr I'll have a better selection of rigs.

props on combining the comp rigs with the scalers and the tuff truck is also a nice touch. theres soo many guys here in denver that run it is almost impossible to run them all together.. and i must say.. the tuff truck challenge is a kick in the pants! i was washing mud off my cr01 for a week.. and the Summit loved it after all was said and done... tranny didnt shift rigth for 3 months after that! Please be sure to post up pics from the comp. Love seein the home town!

The Thomson Dam is on the Blackbear casino exit (hwy 210) off Interstate 35 about 15-20 miles South of Duluth.

Mike, I see a few guys are having a GTG at Taylors over the weekend, if you're in the cities, and have time, I, and most others have a rig you could run at the GTG, if interested?

All rigs wil run the same three courses...no waiting to setup the 1.9....How is that going to work? The course will be the same but with a few different color coded gates for the pros or the 1.9s that run right next to the amature sections. Scalers will run the same courses also. the tuff truck comp will be after the normal comp....but i will have it ready to go right after the comp.

Winch rule? Yeah use your winch but you can only touch the cable or a touch penalty will be given. Time will not stop for you if you use your winch...so it might help might not.

Tuff truck is also open to 1.9 tires rigs also....with a max 2.2 and 6" tire height.

Your never say die attitude is partly why I am putting this event on...so the guys with out a millon bucks can run and do good...it comes down to driver. I seen you run good Taylors if the course was not a dig course...this one is for you man!!!
