Here we go.
Quote:
Points:
Scale Class: All rigs in the Scale class will start off with 0 points and points will be deducted during the competitions. The object is complete the course without incurring points. Point deductions are listed below. Speed is rewarded.

Reverse + 1 point
Rollover + 5 points
Gate + 5 points
Touch + 5 points
Time: - 5 points (awarded if course completed in time allowance: An additional -5 points will be awarded to the fastest time)
DNF + 40 points + 5 points per gate not completed
*Rescue - 5 points

Reverse: Using the throttle to reverse course. Non powered roll backs are allowed. During gated courses each driver is allowed 1 reverse per gate without penalty.

Rollover: Points are assessed when a vehicle rolls over and does not right itself or can not be righted without touching. Winching is allowed without incurring a penalty. Once righted the vehicle must be driven back into position. All gates not already cleared are still live while on a gated course.

Gate: Failure to pass all 4 wheels through a gate or touching a gate with any part of the vehicle. Gate must be cleared in its intended direction. Winching through a gate is allowed. Once a gate is cleared that gate is dead.

Touch: Any contact made to the vehicle by any person during a run. If the touch is resulting in the vehicle being placed back on course the vehicle may not be placed any further forward than the most recent point of progress.

Winch: Winches may be used at any time along the course without penalty unless any part of the winch touches a gate. If that occurs a gate penalty will be assessed.

Time: A 5:00 minute (or 1 minute per gate) time limit can be applied per run, this is not required and will be at the discretion of those judging the courses.

DNF: If a vehicle is unable to complete the course regardless of reason a DNF will be assessed. If a DNF is assessed then they will be scored with +40 points add to their current point total plus 5 points for every gate not completed.

*Rescue: Using another vehicle to free a vehicle on course. The rescue vehicle will only be allowed during runs in which the buddy system is in place. The rescuer will receive the bonus points.

*Buddy System: When the buddy system is in use 2 vehicles will run the course, the leading vehicle is the one being scored during that run. The “buddy” is the follower and will not be scored unless a rescue is requested. After the course has been completed the drivers will reverse order and the “buddy” now becomes the leader. Driving order will be decided by a coin flip. Buddy pairing will also be decided by chance. Method of determination will be decided on site based on number of participants.

And that repo penalty is? It got taken out of the penalty list...

Did we ever come to a conclusion about points for winching? On timed courses there is no penalty but with no time limit restriction on courses a +1 penalty is given for every winch attempt.

Doing this will keep people from overly winching and delaying the comp.

looks pretty good to me..

I am fine either way on the winch thing but think about it like this.. a +1 does not really limit anything or make someone get done faster just like someone using 500 reverse's to clear the course. they can stay out there as long as they want there is at no point a maxx score that says hey you suck get off the course.. the only way to get things moving without a maxx point style system is to use a clock.

even if a maxx point system was made up I have seen guys take 20 minutes+ in 2.2 comp to finish a course, we use a timer there to now.. some people drive like there out there for a sunday stroll not to finish the course in a timely matter..

once you start using the timer you wont look back.. people get more time to run, you can run more course's in a day. because your not waiting on the guys that are slow as dirt to finish.. if you dont believe that clock will speed things up just time all your runs one time you will be suprised how long some people are out there..

Very true Sloppy. Anytime we have a large gathering a timed system is a must should be a must. Doing that will take care of the delays more than the points for winching.

The time issue started because when we had the first few comps there were only a small number of scale trucks. So getting everyone drive time was not an issue.

same here I wanted to use a clock after just a few comps but there were smaller groups and it worked without it... now that we have started using it no way I would go back..

the point section looks pretty good to me.. so here is my AYE vote..
