I'm ok with trailer queens in 2.2. I still think the tail light requirement should be in place.

Me too. 'Street' doesn't really fit with the size of the rims, but they should still look 'real'. Tubers should have interiors (2 seats imo)....

I see this as kind of a 'farm/woods' truck class, wooden beds, dog boxes....mud trucks and the like. Should we possibly have a max height from the ground to the bottom of the frame?

If they must remain intact, you can change then, cut slots for chassis rails (for winch mounting, etc) or anything. It's just the definition of the word, and if it's not right in the rules, it'll bite us on the arse.

That's all.

your right I never noticed that there was a comma before. I always thought there was a period after fenders. with that said in the scale points section there are points awarded for hard bumpers

True form bumpers installed on a lexan body. (i.e. installing a clod or blackfoot style bumper on a
lexan body) *Applies only to lexan bodies, scores for each bumper.

therefore I have to assume that a hard bumper is indeed OK..

Let people build 'em as high as they want. We'll design a course with lots of sidehills just for them

I agree....I was only suggesting it for the look of it. I wondered if it was a goofy idea....but you never know if you don't bring it up!

We're dumping the street-legal requirement, any removed body panels must reveal detail, bumpers are optional.

Would a dovetailed body still count as a full body? I vote yes.

So what we are doing is creating a (more or less) open scale devision. Keeping them not quite comp worthy, but still scale in looks..ie the details. I dont mind the idea of dovetailing, but not sure. Dovetailing is usually reserved for the comp truck more so than the scalers. I think if we do dovetails we must keep it within a certain ratio to the stand body width. I was thinking about setting a standard measurement, but with different body it would look totally different. Say comparing a 1/8 scale to a 1/10 scale.

So basically what you are saying is 3 inches (for example) would be different on a Pumpkin body than a New Bright Wrangler for instance? I was thinking we could do it as a percentage of body width, but that would be hard to measure.

You've either got to eliminate dovetailing or allow it, it would be to difficult to have to figure out a percentage.

Remember the goal is keep this simple and straight forward, plus obtain the scale look of it.

sure a dovetail is a full body. it is a pretty common trail mod.. you either dovetail your truck with a torch and welder or you bash the thing off the rocks till the bed is narrow enough not to hit stuff..

jugg is right we need to keep it simple measurements and math wont solve all the things that will come up.. if there trail trucks and they meet the frame requirements and the RTI is under 500 I could care less how much body is left on the truck..
