Default Rules for 2.2 Scale Class

This should be much easier since the baseline for 1.9 has been established, the 2.2 should follow the 1.9 rules.


2.2” 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 2.2” size. Tires must be 2.2 OEM.

> 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, and tail lights(need not function), (rear fender and tailgate rules to not apply to tubed beds).

> Steering: 4-wheel steering is illegal.

> Drivetrain: A chassis mounted transmission and/or transfer case are allowed. Front or rear dig, cutting bakes, motor on axle (MOA) designs are illegal. Chassis with single or 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've modified the Wheel and tires and removed the line about a full size spare being required to lay flat in a bed.

Maybe mention using a tub chassis as being allowed.

If 1.9 is the street-legal class,then 2.2 should reflect more hardcore vehicles IMO. Not that you can't build a pure scaler with 2.2's, but something besides tire size should separate the classes.

we don't want to get it to close to a comp style though.

this was the original wording
Quote:
2.2” Class – Modeled after modified but street legal off-road vehicles
·Chassis must be a ladder style chassis. Construction material is not restricted
·Tires are restricted to any commercially available 2.2” tire or any tire cut down to fit a 2.2” wheel.
·Must run a complete body, bumpers, fenders, doors & tailgates must be intact. Some fender trimming is allowed but the basic shape must be retained. A shortened or lengthened body is allowable. A tubed bed must have a functional bed area capable of carrying a full-size spare stored in the vertical position (rear fender and tailgate rules to not apply to tubed beds).
·No 4 wheel steer
·No axle “dig”
·Wheelbase and width is limited only by your body, but it must fit within the body’s fender wells.
·Vehicles must be “run what ya brung.”
·Battery must be placed on or within the chassis.
·“Tuber” vehicles will be addressed on site and maybe allowed to run in this class but no guarantee is given.
·No truck will be allowed with a RTI score over 500*

No, let's keep the frame requirement. All-out tubers can run in 2.2 comp. No dig or 4WS, but allow a little more leeway as to what can be run. Fenderless, doorless, flatbeds, etc. as long as the panels removed show inner fenders or an interior.

Ok, so the rules based on 1.9 are ok, just need to add wording that allows tubers as long as they extend over the axles. That means comp style rigs like scorpions etc would be allowed to compete with 2.2 broncos.

Unless it reads similar to this:

The chassis or frame must be a ladder style and extend over the axles. Full tubular chassis will be allowed, however either a partial or full body must be run and conform to all other specifications. 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.

Tubers are allowed, as long as the tube chassis is the same size and shape as the body and extends over the axles. Otherwise, a comp tuber with a Lexan body could be snuck in

Tubular chassis' must conform to the size and shape of the body being run.

And of course the body has to conform to the body specs in the rules.

How about allowing the molded bumpers to be removed?. I see a lot of backyard build hard core trucks that simply have the bumpers removed for better approach and departure angles, mostly the rear one. These are ones that are driven, of course.

I'd take that as a given in 2.2

In fact, NOSTR awards bonus points for bumpers.

yeah 2.2 dump the street legal line, not to many places you can run 54" tires down the street in the first place.. 2.2 should be the trailed rigs.. beaters, doors, bed fenders, who cares they would have fell off years ago.. people can still build trucks that look streetable if they want, but guys that want real offroad beaters can have there fun to.. heck I am not opposed to tubers in the class, just limited to dual seat style tubers. then the timberwolf, recluse, and rigs like that would have a place to run.. there not comp based tubers by any means.. a hustler is a competion style tuber it does not fit within these guidlines.

and like stu just pointed out bumpers and other items left on a truck can be rewarded later in the scale points section.. so while a tuber may gain some advantage here or there, a stocker truck would get bonus's for the parts left on it..

some examples they all still look like real trucks but there far from street legal..

Leaving the molded in/on bumpers in place really negates the ability to do custom pieces, or use Savage style molded units.

If 2.2"s require bumpers, it should be open to "Requires front and rear bumpers".

BMT I dont see where the rules say you cant change the bumper.. as there worded it just says required not that you cant change them..

I dont see a need for a bumper in this class at all. but they should be rewarded if left on, by left on I mean running a bumper not necessarily the one that came on the body.
