SCORE need to up the weight limit to 4500LBS for Class 6/7200 with 1 3/4 tubing. its to hard to make the 4000lbs limit when building a truck. At 500hp v6 and 4500lbs or less is plenty safe. 5000 lbs i can see the 2" tubing.
Now you saw this is on digital scales zeroed out with a full tank of gas, spare parts, tools, etc, etc...? I would say closer to 4200-4500...[/QUOTE]
I didn't say that, I just said it was weighed at under 4000 don't know what was in the truck or what not. For BAP maybe, for the 1000 probably not???? I do know it had 2 people in it though.
BTW the camburg truck is great looking truck
And thank you!
I do believe that the new rulebook from SCORE that I read did say that it is to be weighed without fuel. Under 4000 lbs without fuel can be done and I know of at least one of our trucks that is under that mark. This is with 2.0 coil over 3.0 bypass and very minimal extras on the truck. It is easy to add weight to these things and if your not careful you are over that mark. Which is why we now build the mandatory tubes out of 2". I know that Caspino's truck was weighed at the race in laughlin 2010 on Savage's scales and weighed 3840 lbs but there have been lots of changes to the truck since then and would no longer make the 4000 lbs mark which is why it was converted to 2". I would say Dave's truck with a full tank of gas ready to race with two spare tires, tools, spare driveshaft, front lights is closer to 4500 lbs.
So when do you think the first race will be?
