Default Unlimited Class specs

Wondering what Unlimited rigs are all about? The name says it all! No limits rigs that can compete in just about anything off road! Most folks will probably focus on Classic Comp style rigs, where you run through a series of gates with a time limit and set of penalties. Currently there are 12" gate width (Mini unlimited) and 16" gate width (Standard) Unlimited classes, which is practically the only spec you need to worry about. Make sure your rig can fit through the gate, and build whatever your heart, wallet, and parts stash will allow!

In addition to regular driving classes, Unlimited will also offer a special "payload" class. The first payload type will be a functioning camera that is statically mounted with a clear view of the surrounding terrain. If the payload option is popular, it could open the door for gimble mounted cameras and other payload types. Just think, your crawler could be useful for more than just competition courses!

So...Is it ok to run a 2.2pro rig in the unlimited class? Or Do you gotta have a rig just for that class? Will the climbs be to tall for a smaller rig?

You can run anything in the unlimited class. I can't predict courses, that really depends on who sets them up. I would think that most courses will be similar to 2.2p in difficulty at first.

This is actually an awesome idea and a great way for the unlimited class to get its foot in the door!

If people ran their 2.2p cars in the unlimited class, not only would there be competition but it could really get people interested in the class itself.

I would be willing to bet in the beginning that you could easily win the unlimited class with a 2.2p car. Like Holmes said though, its a crap shoot on what the courses will look like.

FYI, if the climbs are too tall for a 2.2p rig, they would be too tall for my unlimited rig as its the same wheelbase.

Just thinking out loud but...

The unlimited class could also be considered an advanced 2.2p class in a way. Some guys like a really tough 2.2p course and if you need rear steer and other such things, this could really push you. Maybe this could even help the problem we are having now where some of the guys like easier 2.2p courses and some like the hard ones? The unlimited class could help you feel fulfilled if its harder?

I would like to see another rule to be added. That the rigs should have something that resembles a cab that is like the standard min 1" high. It might just be me, but I think chassis like a "sporty chassis" without a body just looks silly.

If you will notice, I don't even call them trucks in the ruleset. This class isn't for looking like something or being familiar, it is pure unadulterated building with whatever parts are handy. You can certainly put a cab or body on your rig if you like the looks.

You can run anything with wheels. Maybe I should specify it needs wheels to get progress through the gates, lol.

Now you mention it, wasn't it a quadcopter that had the propellers in the wheels so it could both drive and fly? I think it was a Kickstarter project.

Did this not go anywhere? I think that an unlimited class would be fun. It would allow people to focus on top performance and innovation instead of worrying about rules.
