Camaro Trophy Truck

I want to know why that car is allowed to race in that class? It has a truck chasis but I thought every vehicle in that class has to resemble a truck. Did the rules change?

Because it has a tube chassis, unlimited engine, suspension, and a fiberglass body.

Here is a TT chassis, please tell me how you know that is a truck?



If a Camaro fiberglass body panels are put on it why shouldn't it be allowed to race in the same class as if it had truck body panels?

Because it is called Trophy TRUCK. The answer to this gentlemans legitimate question is in the first reply. TT teams signed a petition accepting the Camaro in. Class 1 and tt both have tube chassis, similar engines etc but would it be acceptable for a TT to compete in C1?

open wheel = buggy...zorro was allowed to race because all drivers in TT signed off on his petition..

It's definitely a legit question and I'm sure he just didn't know it has already been beat to death. As cool as I think the Camaro is, I don't think it should be allowed to race as a Trophy Truck.

I hear what you're saying, but they did make a separate "truck" series and I've never heard of a car running with them... We could go around and around (haha) all day, but for me it just comes down to the fact that the truck (bodied) race CARS look cooler going through the rough.

The topic here is not about whats under the body, but what body is on it. I know what you might be after but you only helped prove my point. I just said how we can all see how similar the two classes are, but nobody would accept one or the other in their class without the appropriate body. The Truggy is open wheel. It is unlimited. They chose to ditch the CV's and move the motor in an unlimited fashion. It does not resemble a truck. ....body-wise ;)
