*Subject to change

Classes:
• 2.2 Pro - MOA or Shaffty with dig
• 2.2 S - Shaffty only no dig
• 2.2 Sportsman - MOA or Shaffty no dig, one ESC, one axel steer
(for beginners with Axial - AX10 and XR10, Berg, Red Cat - Rockslide RS10, G-Made - Rock Buggy, Venom - Creeper, Losi - Night Crawler, Kyosho - Rock Force, Etc.)
• 1.9 - Shaffty only no dig
• Super - Run what you brung

A Wraith in its standard configuration can only run in the Super Class due to its width and wheelbase. If you build a rig with Wraith parts it has to meet the guidlines for 2.2 rigs as noted in USRCCA rules.

Standard USRCCA rules would apply to all classes

We will run 8 comps this season. You best 4 comps count toward State Finals. If a comp is canceled due to weather we will reschedule to assure we get in 8 comps. You do not have to compete in all 8 comps but you must at least compete in 4 comps to qualify for State Finals.

You can run your Wraith in the Sportsman class for sure. I am not sure if a Wraiths dimensions fit the USRCCA specs for 2.2 S but if it does you could run it in 2.2 S.

You could run it in the Sportsman class so long as it does not have a dig unit. Just keep in mind that we are crawlers not scalers so the courses are a bit more challenging. You should come out and give it a go it's free and you just might get hooked. :lol2:

Yes-yes & yes + some other stuff, it's all just to see how it works for a few comps, if it doesn't work out then its back to way it was.

Basically I wanted to go lighter, I shaved a little over 5oz off it, so in just a hair over 5lb, but I couldn't afford d-lux tubes so its gonna stay where it's at for now.

Changed the electronics on it also, wheels, and different foam set up.


It's doing really well as it sets now so we'll see.

Cool...

My rig is not totally new but it is way different than it was. I've only had it on the rocks once. I'm at 4 lbs. 11 oz. ready to run +/- depending on wheel weight setup. When I get some money I'll send my wheels off to have the lightened or buy some carbon ones.

Thank and enjoyed those of you who showed up at our comp yesterday. Sorry if I didn't get to meet everyone. Like you have you guys out again. Perhaps we could do a scale / crawler GTG / Comp together some time.

That was cool running with a larger group. I still can't believe how good the axial scalers run on grippy rock. That Dingo was easily crawling up 60-70 deg slopes w/o even breaking a aweat. The rig was almost stock, I think it had a 55T motor and a better servo, all else was basically stock.

I've seen a couple of axial scale rigs and as long as the approach angle is not to drastic these things are like mountain goats! Even the stock tires squish down and grip the red stone, looks just like 1:1 scale rigs.
