Default twin hammers

I just picked up a twin hammer and am wanting to scale with it. My question is, is it legal and in what class?

Class 3, discussed here:
2013 scale rules discussion or question thead

It's mostly because of tire coverage.

I'm not on the rules committee, but I would say it's the same deal as a CC-01. It's not a TVP, and the chassis is as long as the wheelbase.

It's a G6 rig or rock racker, it's not the type of rig made for the 10 gate type competitions that rule are modeled after. It just don't fit in the rules any where. Hit a G6 comp and kick butt.

I'm almost thinking it's going to need it's own class. Another set of rules But in the short time I've driven mine (no locker) I don't see it competing with a purpose built C3 rig. IMO it's a go fast buggy. Maybe run all 3 courses with this thing and the go fast is in between each course

Opps we both posted at the same time. But if my locker gets in tomorrow I'll be running it Saturday at the recon G6 along with a few others.

Why? It wouldn't be a serious Class 3 rig, or class 2 for that matter. Like Ricky said, G6 the hell out of it and have a blast doing what it's meant to do

Then you have a rock race competition. There's not enough time in a National scale event to have a rock race too.
With the rigs that are out there now, someone should write up a few rules and have a rock race type event. But to try and fit these rigs in the scale rules we have won't work. It just 2 different type rigs.

It'd better have metal rail chassis.

No ,but, really, I see the hammers on the off road track. They could put some rocks or stuff to crawl over, get up on the driver's stand and have a good old time, But I wouldn't take my scaler's out there .

You guys are just looking for a way to pick on the rules, it very clear it don't fit in them, just like a 1/8 scale buggy don't.

Well at the moment

You must run a rail chassis (for example: Bruiser/Mountaineer, SCX-10, Reign RC K2-3S, 3L, 4, 5, MFM, X-Trail, CR-01, UTE, etc...) No TVP (twin vertical plate) chassis' or frame rail extensions on a TVPs. The exception to this rule is the Tamiya CC-01 or TA-02 ,(Hummer, S-10, Ford F-150 and Toyota Hilux)and Modified class Tubers.

We're looking into adding the Twin Hammers into this list.

This thing will make a perfect trophy truck scaler IMO if some one showed up to a 1.1 rock crawling comp with a 4wd ifs buggy/trophy truck they would let him enter its not a purpose built crawler imo put in the same class as you would a wriath both are replicating purpose built rigs just different twist

Can't wait till tax return gets here and I can order mine

C2 doesn't need any tire coverage, just inner tire must be inside the body at the doors. I think the TH meets that. If not, offset will.

How do you know? I'm 99% positive we are the only ones that have had a C2 comp that had a TH run. The driver is kinda green & it was basically stock. Didn't do great, but there is potential.

I am building mine as a crawler first & foremost.

My Personal take on this is:-

If someone turns up at a Comp with a 'Twin Hammers' and wants to compete then they should be allowed as long as it fits into one of the 3 classes. (probably 3 as stock, modified maybe class 2)

I personally cant see a Box Stock 'Twin Hammers' being very competitive but I don't think that the rules should alienate people from buying or running this truck in competitions.
I think that we should as a 'comittee' be encouraging new products and people to take part in events.

These are my own views and not everyone on the Comittee agrees!!
