Timer:   A count up timer must be used, count down timers are not permitted. Time limits can be used but are not mandatory and should not be less than 1 min per gate (not including bonus gates), example: 10 min  for 10 gates.   

The timer can be stopped for reasons of driver safety.  Time must resume as soon as the driver verbally indicates that they are in a safe position.  If the driver uses any portion of the stopped time to study the course or take driving instructions from their spotter in anyway, that driver will receive a DNF, NO EXCEPTIONS.  The judges call is final. 

Spotter:   A single spotter with a winch pole is permitted.

Driver must be full 3D, vac molded drivers/seat will NOT get points. 

Courses:   3 course minimum.   The number of courses over the 3 course minimum will be decided by the event organizers.

 DNS:  If the driver is unable to start a course for any reason during their assigned starting position, he/she will get a DNS and zero points for that course. On course repairs are not allowed in this situation.  Note:  if the front axle clears the starting gate, and on course repair can be made. 

DNF:  If the driver is unable to complete a course for any reason or attempts to progress a gate against the course direction, he/she will get a DNF with zero points for that course, negative points still apply.  

Roll Over:  Manual and winch assisted roll overs are not allowed. Instead, the truck must be picked up and repo'd to the prior gate with the rear axle lined up with the gate,  repo penalty will be assessed. If a boundary is hit during a roll over, an additional repo penalty will be assessed. 

Boundary:  If a boundary is hit, the truck must be picked up and repo'd to the prior gate with the rear axle lined up to the gate, repo penalty will be assessed.

Scoring:   The highest score wins.  Tied final scores will be decided by adding individual course times.

Minimum of 10 gates per course, 3 course minimum.

Start at zero points (+20 for scale driver per course)

+10 per cleared gate (no lost points if gate is hit)

+5 per cleared winch thru gate (no lost point if gate is hit)

X4  ROCK BOUNCING 

 

There will be three hills at every event. All hills will have a minimum time of 3 min or Maximum of 10 min depending on course. This is a progression race. Your performance will be what gets you to the next level.

 

1.“Chassis” Hill one, your rc must have at minimum a 4-point cage/roll bar that appears to be functional. Hill two and three you must have a minimum of a 8 point roll cage, like you would see on a wraith, bomber etc..

 

2.. "No touch". no touching your Bouncer once the run has begun. Exceptions to this rule are: Hand of god recovery, if you roll over and cannot right your RC you then may pick up your RC and place it back to the last gate progressed. If you break and can trail repair with in your time limit. When deemed necessary we will allow catching if the hill has a large amount of incline to prevent too much damage.

 

3. "Gates" there will be limited number of gates to show your route and to make progression. You're allowed to hit the gates but no tire can be over the gate for progression Backing threw the gate is allowed only if it is in the intended direction of the course. Once the gate has been progressed it is now dead. Going back threw it will result in disqualification and you will get a DNF.

 

 Hill #1  Everyone will start on this hill, this will be an easy hill designed for the new driver to get a feel for the sport and or test and tune, this is also a warm up hill for those who are looking to move forward into the series. You are only allowed to run one Bouncer on this hill. Two runs not back to back, fastest 10 with in spec. will move on to hill two. 

 

Hill #2  This will be a Medium to Hard hill designed to challenge a driver and bring more of a competitive edge. You can only run the Bouncer you advanced from hill 1 with. Two runs, not back to back. The fastest 5 will move on to hill three.

 

Hill #3  This will be a difficult to extreme hill. This will be for the top 5 drivers from hill two. You can only run the Bouncer you advanced from hill 2 with. Two runs, not back to back.
