Default Frequency Management

Frequency Management will be your own responsibility for this event. There will be 3 courses running at the same time, it is your job to make sure that the guys on the other course are not on the same channel as you.

NO CRAWLING will be allowed during the comp if it is not your turn. Please trun your radios off at the end of your run. The funcrawl/bash is on sunday, if you want to drive and play around do it on sunday.

Event entry $35
Fuel to drive 1100 miles $300
Condo rental for the weekend $800










Hitting the last gate of the finals, sending you from 1st place to 4th place because your $30 radio decided to glitch............















Worthless!!!

I had a battery cable come loose. Caused what seemed to be a radio problem. Thought for sure it was the radio.

Since Jason said freq management will be our own responsibility, I'd say it'd be in each person's best interest to bring 2 spare sets of crystals...or a Spektrum.

I used to race electric off road truck a lot, so I know how it goes, I'll bring 3 sets at least.

I have a wire that runs from my "controler" to my rig. Eliminates the whole frequency thing all together.

That's like a spotter strap.

So how many touch penalties will you rack up?

Just one I guess... If he never lets go of his control he has only really touched once.
