    Admemdment to 2014 Scale rules

    SCALE DRIVERS ONLY PLEASE READ, VOTE and RESPOND.


    Here is a rough copy of the proposed changes for 2014 EPARCCrawler Scale Season



    If you have any suggestions please respond to the post.


    2014 inclusion of an OPEN CLASS for new drivers that run the Deadbolt, Ridgecrest and Wraith.

    The OPEN CLASS will run on the Class 2 courses.


    Class 1 and Class 2 and OPEN CLASS will be broken into seperate divisions; Adventurer and Trail Ready.

    If an Adventurer driver wins 5 times in a season they will move up to the Trail Ready level.


    Each division (ADVENTURER and TRAIL READY) in the classes would be determined by the scale points you run.

    The points listed below would be the 1/2 point tally using the SORRCA rules.
    EPARCCrawler addendums will apply.

    Box Stock-15 scale points (ADVENTURER)
    16-30 Scale Points (TRAIL READY)
    MAX Scale Points 30

    Scoring:
    1st =0 points
    2nd =1point
    3rd=2 points
    4th=3 points
    5th=4 points
    6th=5 points
    7th=6 points
    8th=7 points
    DNS=10 points


    The lowest point total at the end of the 9 comps would be the series winner.

    The series is broken up into Spring(3)/Summer(3)/Fall(3) (9 comps in all)

    Changing the scoring to this method would be much more competitive and the season scores would be much closer.

    There will be two drop comp. scores at the end of the season. Drivers will drop their two worst scores.


    The other possibility is to not keep a running total and just acknowledge the winners that week.




    Rational:
    Inclusion of an OPEN CLASS including of Deadbolt, Wraith and Ridgecrest is to promote the growth of the hobby and interest in the competition aspect of scale RC. This way everyone who want to has the ability to try and compete.

    Breaking the scale classes into divisions will cater to the new comers just starting out and the experienced drivers alike.
    Drivers will be challenged on their current levels of experience and ability of their rigs.

    Class 1
    Adventurer
    Trail Ready

    Class 2
    Adventurer
    Trail Ready

    Open Class 1.9/2.2
    Wraith, Deadbolt, Ridgecrest
    Adventurer
    Trail Ready

    2.2 OPEN CLASS could have several gates that are more challenging.

    Box stock is a great idea....i have heard a few say class 1 courses drive like class 2 and so on...those types of courses shouldn't require a winch necessarily.....some of these guys haven't gotten that far into building so things like winches and being waterproof could be a problem for newbies...those seem to be the 2 most common things new guy ask about first

    We build class 1 so there is not a required winch. However the tires are much smaller in class 1 than in Class 2. We don't run through deep water for any class so the is not an issue in a comp situation. There is a buddy winch that can be done if needed. It might also come down to course design, Adventurer goes one direction Trail Ready splits off and goes another way in the course, then they meet up. Like anything it will be a period of experimenting and trial and error until we get it all nailed down.

    Comps courses generally don't dunk trucks,most of us have way to much money invested in our comp only trucks to abuse them by dunking them in a stream.

    well the reason i mentioned it is because the rule book i printed off of here does make a point of saying that you should be waterproof and also makes a point of saying "your gonna need a winch"....by the time i considered doing a comp i was well versed in both and i dont remember exactly where ill check if ya want but it did say both of those things so i figured id mention it..

    We waterproof for g6 (although we only seem to have about 5-6 show up who aren't chicken) but most regular scale comps are not near enough to a stream, etc. winches aren't mandatory, but if you don't have one you will incur the time penalty.

    The G6's we have done are not really near a stream so the mud puddle bath is about it usually. We can make a water trap if we get enough to come out.

    It says that but we don't build our courses with a lot of water. We try to build an out for each hard/winch gate. The idea is you can progress, but you might have to take out a gate to do it.

    Building courses is almost an art it takes a lot of practice before you can predict r what a gate will do. Even then we get surprised. Building courses really helps with driving too.
