Default VA-Scaler hosting 1st Camel Trophy Team Challenge June 1st,



VaScalers is hosting the first ever Camel Trophy Scale Challenge.


The course will be over 1 hour long, with challenges that will include but not limited to mud-pits, bridges/floating bridges, winch hills, water, hill climbs. This event will be a team based event. Each team will have 3 members that will be randomly decided the day of the event. The main goal for this event will be helping your team complete the course in the fastest time, while progressing gates and obstacles.

To keep things on a level playing field we are going to keep all tire sizes as class 1. That just means the tires need to be under 4.19"

Waterproofing is highly recommended, as there will be creek crossings, puddles, and mud. Also, each team will need at least one truck with a winch, but the more winches the faster each team will be able to complete a tough obstacle. There will places where a winch will be absolutely necessary.


The event will be graciously hosted at Kunas' house.

1671 chestnut grove rd winchester Va 22603 is the addy.

$15 entry fee.

Driver list:
1.Kunas
2.Milkman
3.Sellenk
4.MjDerstine
5.Creepy
6.TruckBob
7.nvxwax
8.
9.
10.

some pics of the course. we still have quite a bit of work to do...

Man I had a great time today, and I did nothing but video most of the day!

Next time you can be sure I'll have a truck built that fits the rules. This course is so fun already, and it's just starting to get broken in.

Working in teams of three trucks is such a cool format.

Thanks Kunas for hosting a great event. I'm looking forward to another!

It would be awesome if you guys could make it up. Just something cool about seeing that many trucks all running at the same time, and with all the nice rigs you guys have it would make it even better.
