Okay I have what looks to be 7 people including myself that would like to do a Jeep Build-Off. I will write up a short list of rules, post them up, and look for input. I would like to use November 1st as the Start date and I have no idea when a end date should be. HELP

Ian would just sell it on ebay.



Dec 31st works for me. I could probably build something crappy enough in 2 months.

I'm IN on this one......and 2 months is perfect to keep the attention of everyone....I think ! (plus put some pressure on us to ...."get er' done" !



Is there a limit to the amount of Jeeps that we can enter ?

Just wondering...because I've got several ideas and some parts gathered up....that I was thinking about doing between Thanksgiving and Christmas anyways...



Also...if you get alot of entries....you could even break it down into sub-classes....and have "Best of Class" and "Best Overall"...etc.

Classes like:

JK's
TJ's
YJ's
LJ's
CJ's
XJ's
MJ's
WJ's
KJ's/KK's
DJ's
ZJ's
WK's
SJ's/FSJ's
Willy's


And I'm sure I forgot some ! LOL

Default How Does this set of Rules look?

1. Start Date is November 1, 2011. You are welcome to join late if you like, you will just have less time then everyone who started with the Start Date. If you want to join the Build-Off with a rig that you have already started you will have to post up a couple photos so the group can decide if it is to far along to join. In other words it will be up for a vote and majority will rule.


2. You are welcome to use any Jeep Body that you want to start with as long as in the end it still looks like a Jeep. (Even if it is Highly Modified.)


3. You must use 1.55, 1.9, or 2.2 Size Wheels, just make sure they look scale when you are finished.


4. You can use any chassis as well as Suspension set up. But everyone will be judging your Rig in the end so make sure it looks scale.


5. You will be asked to start a thread for yourself and keep it up to date as to the progress of your build. In the Subject line please add Jeep Build-Off. We have all seen the build threads where a person shows the progress of their build along the way. With photos and a brief description of your progress. A link will added to direct people to your tread so anyone can see what is going on. All you will have to do is give us the link and then we will post it here as people join the build off.

6. Date of Completition will be January 31, 2012.



On the Date of Completion You will be asked to PM me four photos so that I can build a Poll that can be built to determine the winner of the Jeep Build-Off.

I don't like rule #3
I would be down for the buildoff but 1.55's would look just plain nuts on my 1/20 CJ body ....

That #3 rule puts micro builders out of the buildoff, could you change that rule up a bit?

Well us micro guys don't have many options for tires so anything under 2 1/2", which is the tallest micro tire out right now & on a 1/20 build they look scale for a modded looking rig.
Here are some pics of rc4wd 1.55 & a RC4WD micro tire.






& Rc4wd tire next to the 2 1/2" mini qlo tire.

3. You can use any Micro, 1.55, 1.9, or 2.2 Size Wheels, just make sure they look scale when you are finished.
