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 can use any Micro, 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.

What if the rule stated that the wheels and tires must fall into a scale size available if our model were 1:1.
2.2s on a 1/10 would be 22"s
1.9"s on a 1/9 would be 17"s
1.55"s on a 1/10 would be 15"s etc
I think Micro guys should use what is available for them as long as it is scale looking.

I think that pretty much covers the tire issue, everyone agree?

Yes, Micros are welcome. Just take a second to give the rules another look. You may have missed something. LOL

This is a great idea, but the build offs always seem to come when I have a rig just built!!

This is mine.....



Build thread here, http://www.scale4x4rc.org/forums/showthread.php?t=59024

I think I'm too far down finished, so I don' think qualify, but I still have loads to do on it!! I will fully understand if you guys don't want to let me in on this build off!

Either way, I wish you guys good luck!!
