I got a set to.. and I really didnt see a performance advantage of them he did make them for 1.9 tires as kind of a beadlock design. I am sure if we started putting calipers to wheels we would find a few that are over spec. so maybe just let the wheel slide based on what it was designed for..

I like Riffister's wording, but I personally wouldn't mind seeing it in the same class. With my club at least we don't have enough tube beds to warrant a separate class and as has been said a couple times, I don't think a tube bed has much of an advantage over you average Jeep or bobbed bed pickup. I suppose that could just be left up to the club.

To Juggsters question on 2.0's, any 1.9" tire can be stretched over 2.0's. I don't think it adds any height to the tire, at least not enough to put them over the legal limit. Biggest advantage is you can get away with not gluing your tires.

Edit: Wow I'm slow.

I agree completely on having just one 1.9 class. The more classes we have, the less people in each class and it will add set up time as well.

I agree. One class is plenty. If it means a tube bed competes with a stock-looking rig, so be it. Splitting up 1.9 into road-going and trail-only invites needless complication.

The reason for the 2 classes is the fact that we're seeing more and more 1.9 sized comp style rigs. It wouldn't be fair to force them to run with 2.2s. Plus I'm only talking about 2 classes, and the rules would only be slightly changed.

As for the 2.0 wheels, while the 1.9 is the box standard, we could allow a 2.0 rim, but it must be used with a 1.9 sized tire. No cut down 2.2's.

I think that is a good way of putting it. Keep anyone from trying to take advantage of the .1" larger rims.

I would say that comp style rigs would have comp rules, not scale rules. A guy in our club built a 1.9 comp rig that was sweet, but we had no intention of him running it in a scale category. I really believe that people who build comp rigs, no matter what the rim diameter, want to follow pretty much the same comp rules. Scale guys, no matter the rim size, want to run scale rules. Just my opinion.

I'm fine with that, any comp rig be it 1.9 or 2.2 can run under USRCCA rules.

Any objections?

This will now allow tube beds as long as it has tail lights (can be non functional) but must be large enough to securely hold a full size spare tire.

so do we have 1.9 truck specs sorted out yet?? I added tube bed back, I also took out the road going class sounds kinda repetitive to me to call it road going and then explain street legal non trailered in the next line.. any more suggestions?? comments??? are we there yet????

1.9” Class
This class is modeled after typical street-legal off-road vehicles, non-trailered vehicles. These rules are set up to judge a scale truck as the "sum of its parts." The goal is to have trucks that resemble something you might actually see driving down a highway on the way to the trail. Understand the "spirit" of the rules and work within them.

> Chassis: The chassis or frame must be a ladder style and extend over the axles. Competition style RC rock crawling chassis are not allowed. This includes twin vertical plate designs (TVP), "stick" style, torsion and forced articulation. Tub style chassis are allowed.


> Wheels & Tires: Wheels are restricted to OEM 1.9” size. If the tires are cut down 2.2’s, they must fit onto a standard 1.9” rim and not exceed 4.25” in height and 1.75” in width. Flywheels brand wheels and tires and 1/18-scale Nylint brand wheels and tires will be allowed. Wheels must not exceed 1.9"

> Body: You must run a complete body, bumpers, fenders, doors and tailgates must be intact. Moderate fender trimming is allowed, but the basic shape of the fender must be retained. If no doors are run, the vehicle must have an interior (dash, floorpan, seats, etc). If no tailgate is used, the bed must be built out (drop bed). A shortened or lengthened body is allowed. A tubed bed must have a functional bed area capable of carrying a full-size spare laid flat, and tail lights(need not function), (rear fender and tailgate rules to not apply to tubed beds).

> Steering: 4-wheel steering is illegal.

> Drivetrain: Front or rear dig is illegal. Cutting brakes are illegal. Motor On Axle (MOA) designs are illegal. Chassis with dual integrated motors are allowed, but the motors must always be powered (no electronic digs).

> Wheelbase and width: The dimensions of the vehicle are limited only by the body, but it must fit within the body’s fender wells.

> Comp-day modifications: The vehicle must be run as it was setup for tech inspection.

> Battery: The Battery must be placed on or within the chassis.

I believe so.

Are there any objections?

Umm no objections so to say, but I would like to have the wording changed on the wheel selection. There are the guys who run the 2.0's. There are no advantages to runing the 2.0's other than the not glueing thing. Maybe something like this.
> Wheels & Tires: Wheels are restricted to OEM 1.9” size. If the tires are cut down 2.2’s, they must fit onto a standard 1.9” rim and not exceed 4.25” in height and 1.75” in width. Flywheels brand wheels and tires and 1/18-scale Nylint brand wheels and tires will be allowed. 2.0 NBL's are allowed.

I thought we had 2.0's running 1.9 OEM standard tires, not cut down 2.2's.
