    Rules/specs..


    Chassis must be a scale frame.

    Example.. Axial scx or Axial wraith..Vaterra ascender

    Home built tubers are ok as well but must be scale in appearance.


    4ws or dig.. not both.

    No penalties for using those functions.


    No MOA's

    No track width or Wheelbase restrictions.


    Just keep in mind… "Scale in Appearance"..

    It may kill you being to wide in some courses/situations.

    You will be judged on how scale looking it is in the Show n Shine.

    Interiors would be a Nice touch but not necessary.

    I’m sure it would help your chances in the show n shine.



    Battery limit..

    2s-3s only



    Motor-unlimited


    SCALE TIRES ONLY

    Scale… Out of the package tires only...

    no cut n shuts..

    On course...

    You will be timed… and distance measured.

    Touch/cross the tape or the course boundaries and your done for the course. DNF

    Battery changes allowed

    No repairs… you break on course you must finish or DNF.

    You may repair in between courses.

    You must right your vehicle yourself with(winch)or under its own power.


    *WINCHING PENALTIES**

    1 point penalty per course for using winch

    *** NOT ALLOWED***

    No HOG (Hand of God)

    No tow ropes.

    Which means..

    If you rollover and you have no winch and you cant right yourself… Thats as far as you made it. Judges will mark the distance or DNF on some courses.


    Waterproof your rigs as water/mud will be in vast quantities.

    Few tips!

    Clay's Tips for a successful and enjoyable TTC experience.

    1: Pre-Game Prep. Make a checklist of things to pack. Every spare parts, tools, battery, charger, personal items to get you through the event.

    2: Vehicle Inspection. Double check all the drivetrain screws, wheel nuts, electronics, and inspect for wear and tear. Most these items are the least expensive components of a rig but always seem to be the death of a rig.

    3: Cleanup.
    I highly recommend bringing some form of water storage. An ice chest, rubber tote, or best, a pump sprayer. Mud will be everywhere and keeping your rig clean and having the ability to clean for a repair will be monumental. A cheap insecticide sprayer is ideal as it will also provide pressure for blasting things clean.

    4: Strategy.
    Watch the video of the 1:1 course we posted. We have mirrored the courses to be almost identical for a true scale RC event. Understand the rules for each event so you can plan ahead to keep yourself at the top of the competition.

    5: Good Attitude.
    We always encourage a family friendly atmosphere for all ages and genders. Smack talk it up, just keep it clean

    If you have tips or tricks to help everyone attending make the most of their experience, please share in the comments. I wouldn't go giving away any strategy though.
