Location: Taylors Falls, the parking lot by the glacial potholes.
Time: Set-up begins approx. 9:30 and the comp starts around 10ish
We plan on starting at 10 for 1.9 Trail so be sure to leave plenty early.
Classes will be run in this order. In order to keep things moving, when each class starts, set your rigs at the starting gate in a line, so we know who will be running 2nd, 3rd, etc.
Here is the starting order for each class. #1 runs first on course 1. #2 runs first on course 2. #3 listed in case someone can’t make it.
Picked order based on last years top finishers
NOTE: We start with 1.9 trail. !!NEW!! for 2017, we have the beginners/newbie class. If you’re new to competition and just want to see what it’s like. You will run the 1.9 course with whatever rig you bring.
Note that this is in Carlton MN, just south of Duluth, NOT in Taylors Falls.
As always, helping with course setup or cleanup is appreciated.
The results from last week can be found here
Detailed local rules for the rigs can be found here
No rig will be turned away. The number 1 goal is to have fun. If possible we’ll help you get your class into "the rules" but we want anyone to come out and have a good time playing with their "toys" "thumbsup"
(NOTE: a Summit or Yeti XL might struggle fitting through 16" gates, but it’d be fun to see it try)
This class if for anyone who has never competed before or is new to RC crawling all together. You run whatever rig you bring (regardless of type or tire size) on the 1.9 courses. If you start to do well and get comfortable we encourage you to move up into the other classes.
1.9 Trail Class
Get your SCX10, TRX4, MTX, HPI, Ascender, TF2, etc ready. Any rig with a 1.9 (or smaller) scale tire is welcome. Bumpers, sliders and scale tires are required. Winches are allowed with penalty
2.2 Trail Class
That’s right, got a 2.2 wraith, deadbolt, or scx10? We have a class for you!!!! "thumbsup" Bumper is required. Winches are allowed with penalty. Rear steer and Dig are allowed with one time penalty.
Make sure you have some scale tires. Don’t be using cheater tires…:mrgreen:
And, as always, we will have the 2.2pro class. Anyone not familiar with the rules of this class or the rules in general can check out this link HERE.
Pro rigs include any MOA on a comp chassis with comp tires.
Making a return for 2017 is the sporty class. These will be run on the same courses as 2.2 Pro with the USRCCA rules.
1st— you will time and call out penalty’s for the person before you. This will give you an opportunity to see the course before you run.
2nd— you run the course.
3rd— you will score for the person behind you. I would encourage anyone not comfortable with the rules to ask for help! I would also like to see everyone take the judges test HERE.
-Also there is a club fee of $5 per comp or $30 for the series. Females and young kids run for free. Ask for Kevin (nicklepimp)
If there are some new people that haven’t been to an event yet, just look for all the middle aged kids playing with toy trucks!"thumbsup"
