CONCOURS CLASSES AND RULES
BEST DAILY DRIVER
There is only one rig in our fleet that can legally claim California Street Legal status, the Axial SCX10! And it must be 100% drivable! Heck, it has to be able to drive to the DMV! How are you going to get current registration on it if won’t drive in?
Judges will be looking for items such as these:
Head lights – check!
Tail lights – check!
Turn signals – check!
Mirrors – check!
Seat Belts – check!
Insurance Documents – check!
License plate – check!
Mudflaps – check!
Just so you know, in 2016, half of the class was eliminated on the first pass due to no license plate. The battle went toe-to-toe with the participants having all the boxes ticked, with the final winner walking away with it all because he had scale miniature insurance documents! It was a scale version of his actual DMV and insurance paperwork with matching VIN numbers!!! Yes, the competition was decided by a single miniature scale item!
Make us go down memory lane! Who loves old trucks or maybe an historical truck? Get as creative as you can with this class and maybe think about this year’s Prospector Theme and tie it all together!
Must be 100% drivable and provable vintage authenticity.
Raisins raisins raisins… What is our fascination with rock raisined, tree-scraped, sheet metal? Sounds like a proper trail rig to us! Bring your Trail-Mix bag of Trail Tested-Raisined out rig! Yes we are talking about sun dried and rock fried… show us what beat down looks like! We know it’s your favorite ol’ trusty that you would drive off into the sunset any ol’ day! What happens when you push the limits and smash your rig into the rocks or get squeezed by those massive pine trees? Check those off too! But it has to be 100% drivable!
