Just out of curiousity, who all would be interested in this type of event? What if there were races held, scaled down stuff like BITD and SCORE run, racing with various classes just like the big boys? Trophy trucks, 1 cars, 10 cars, etc. There are enough people in So Cal who have built trophy trucks, just see Youtube, that could put together a pretty large field of competitors. We're talking special built rigs, scaled versions of the 1:1, not necessarily OEM stuff. Run in (with permission, of course) Plaster City, Ocotillo, Ocotillo Wells, near Salton Sea, even out by Glamis. Perhaps travel to Arizona, Nevada, or even do a baja race in say Ensenada or Tecate. Its most feasible to do this in 1/8 scale, as most of these rigs being built are truly that scale anyway. A friend and I have 99% of the race execution figured out, just a few minor tweaks for something that levels the playing field, thus making driving skill and vehicle preservation the major factors in winning. This format would be a couple hour event to make it more realistic. Comments from the peanut gallery? It could be done for fun, like a camping trip(s) or an organized series. Input???
