As you know I'm in for sure. Probably for the Production Stock class but It may end up snowballing into the 4wd Unlimited Truck class but either way I will be in the build off it comes to pass.

Come on guys and gals lets get some more peoples insight and intrest in this build off idea.

I would say more than likely the Production Stock class for both.

This is just to see how many people are interested in being in it and for your suggestions so there is nothing in stone yet.

Awesome, now we have some hits.

I would say Stock Production is any stock rtr chassis that you're basing your build of off. I.E. Tamiya Hummer, Frog based truck, rally chassis, (maybe even TT pro-2 )......stuff like that. Minor suspension upgrades like longer shocks or relocated shock mounts but chassis remains mostly unchanged.

Any chassis or suspension system you had to build would be unlimited.

Need help placing the SCX10. Should be stock or unlimited 4???

The Baja 1000 starts on November 19. Would this be an appropriate finish date? That gives 4 months and a week from now. That gives a little extra time to come up with those atypical indy front/straight rear chassis.
