I think it could be classed to be fair,With a class to class shootout at the end to see who is the best driver and rig and prize for best spotter.And a trail ride the next day to all the spots led by the winner.

Dude I was worried about racing against YOU I'm wondering about classes too, seems like this is the kind of thing someone on 35's could be fast at as well, never know....maybe 35 and smaller in one class and 36 and up for the rest?...

On the classes I'm thinking two classes 35's and down 36's up with two courses to equal out the difference in rigs from crawler to speed so the best of both will win.This is not set in stone yet but I will figure it out soon.

All Toyota axleshafts are 30 sp. ( at the third) The only difference is inside the Birf itself. Looks like ALL Toyota axleshafts would be in the same class.
My vote is for engine class, too
I'd be in for an event like this, but my turd is waaayy too slow for ANY kind of race. I guess if I made it through the crawling sections pretty quick, it might up for lack of HP on the race sections.

what kind of sections are you thinking about for the
speed portions? I think something that could
produce a little hangtime would be cool...like a mini-
double or something........whoops and ruts or just flat out?


..the Covergurl has never had all 4 tires off the ground except for her flop at K-rocks!!!




This run has soooooo much potential, come on and get some!!
