  • COOL! I'm IN!

    but I have a question for you. I have recently acquired a number of Puller kits, Two orange Blossom Specials, a tennessee Thunder Funny car, and here just recently, a Meister brau Tractor. I also acquired the parts I need t start a mud-racer project I've been wanting to do.

    Plus I've already got quite a few Monster kits, USA-1, Bigfoot #1, Bigfoot #10, (still need the other two kits, Bigfoot #6 and Bigfoot #8) And a Thunderbolt One Blazer Monster kit.

    I also have an MPC monster Dragster, but it's a goofy-lookin' thing that I am going to put a set of paddle-tires on and turn into a sand rail.

    Anyhow, because of all this, and the seemingly renewed interest in these subjects, I was thinking about starting a Monster/puller/mud racer/ tough truck/USHRA CBP.

    basically just like the Monster CBP, but encompassing ALL the subjects you would have seen at any given USHRA/Monsater Jam type event, or any Monster truck show. I was thinking about basically making an on-line Monster-truck/tractor-puller rally. See what I'm saying?

    Anyway, I am Definitely IN for the Monster CBP, but I have decided to hold off on my CBP as I don't want to step on your toes.

    Unless you want to adopt my idea. My guess is that this could turn into the largest CBP on earth if you did. Imagine it: Do you remember the BIG off-road truck shows in the 80's and 90's? The ones you;d see on T.V. all the time? There'd be a regular truck show for the lifted, jacked-up 4x4's, then there would be all the events. The tractor pulls, the 2wd and 4wd truck pulls, The mud-racers in all different classes from Stockers all the way up The Open-Unlimited paddle-tire class, Which are basically just a 4WD Fuel altered that runs on mud, to the tough trucks and all the other stuff at one of those shows.

    It would be really cool to see someone build a "truckasaurus"!!! or something like that...

    There are just PILES and PILES of kits available out there (few are still in Production, but all are still readily available for under $50.00) for something like this.

    if you want, i could make up a list of stuff.

    Sorry dude, I'm not trying to hijack your CBP, I just had an idea at the same time you did, and they kind of COnflict, so I'll hold off on mine unless you want to meld the two together.

    Either way, I'm IN!

    Class one Entry:
    Bigfoot #1, Completely corrected, with tilt front end, Correct wheelbase, corrected wheel opeings and stretched Flares.

    Class Two Entry:
    Bigfoot #10. I had already started this one, I painted the body and decaled it, then set it on my shelf. I never did anything else to it. Is this OK?

    Class three:
    AMT Thunderbolt one Blazer monster Truck, will probably have custom decals and paint, and a different name. As-yet un-named project.


    Can't wait to see everyone Else's entries.

  • first all entries are welcomed.

    second, i have already changed the title

    as for the rules of the puller, and mud racers and tough trucks rules, i will allow javelin to create those.
  • Awesome! I LOVE it!

    The rules for the pullers/mud racers/Tough trucks are as follows:

    Tough truck:
    The rules here are pretty much open. Any body style of truck (or even car converted for off-road use) or SUV (Blazer, Bronco, jeeps) will be allowed. The only restriction here is no "rock buggies". It MUST be based on an existing kit body.
    Modifications are open, but heavy emphasis here will be on creating "the look" of a well-abused tough-truck competitor. These things take an absolute BEATING the likes of which no truck was ever meant to see. Remember, Rollovers are frequent, and the body is the last thing to get repaired. Also, tough trucks run the gamut from $50 beaters dragged from the woodlot behind someone's house, to $50,000 stadium-style race trucks. it's definitely "run whatcha brung".

    mud racers:
    This will be broken into two categories:
    Street-legal: This really should be called "street appearing". Lights, mufflers, windshields, etc. not required. open stack-type exhausts, (like from the mad mudder kit) body mods, etc. are all okay, but no stretched wheelbases, no tube frames, etc. No paddle tires allowed in this class. Stock-type suspensions and frames only. Square-or rectangular tube may be substituted for a bent/broken/missing frame, but no round tube frames allowed. Full Rollcages OK. Fuel cells okay. tractor tires okay.

    Open-unlimited: This is for the bad-dogs. Anything goes. Body style, frame type, all open to your imagination. Want to build a paddle-tired, rear engine unit with an underslung chassis? Go for it. 4WD Funny car? Sure. Use your imagination. the competitors in the 1:1 classes do quite a bit. I've seen everything from a glass-bodied '57 thunderbird to a Chevy s-10 with the engine mounted in the middle, to Fuel-altered type bodies like bantams, t-buckets, and even the occasional chopped Ford Vickie and deuce!

    Puller rules:
    This will be broken down as Follows:
    2WD: Any two-wheel-drive pulling-type vehicle that is not a tractor. tire sizes and types, body styles, etc. are all unlimited. Wheelbase stretches are permitted. All bodies are permitted. Weights may be placed anywhere and in any fashion.

    4WD: Any four-wheel-drive pulling vehicle. This will include trucks with reagular street tires outfitted with equipment for pulling as well as trucks equpped with specialty pulling tires. Also included will be Diesel pullers (break out your AMT Dodge Snap-kits!)

    Tractor: Any pulling tractor, any number of engines, and type of engine (Turbine, Allison, or otherwise. The sky's the limit. Just keep in mind that many sanctioning bodies are now limiting these things to 25,000 horsepower(YIKES!)

    Lawn tractor: yes, lawn tractor. Any lawn tractor modified for lawn-tractor pulling. or, any small pulling tractor equipped with any engine less than 8 cylinders. (Generally called Mini-rods). Can be powered by motorcycle engines.

    And that's pretty much it. All the rest of the rules as stated above. I am really looking forward to some creative and unique models from you guys.

    screamXforXme, if you have aything on here you want me to change/clarify/delete, let me know.

    Go ahead man! I'm kinda flattered!!! Hey by the way...Would a '02 Ram on leaf springs would fit in one of your classes?? By the way i see it, i think it would go in 2 of 'em...!Big SmileBig Smile

  • nitro, now that theres the tough truck class, pretty much anything would be ok to enter lol. but if your entering an actual monster truck, that uses leaf springs, it would be in class one, the older style trucks.

    and an 02 ram? where did you find that? i'd love to use that for a raminator truck
  • I'm in, at the moment I am working on the Grave Digger and is autographed by Garry Porter. I also have the Snake Bite truck, USA 1, Bigfoots and I want to try and build Avenger.
    Act like a grown up... Play like a child!
  • Aesome to see you guys joining in! The '02 Ram must be one of the older AMT Snap-fast kits? (I don;t know WHY they never made them in regular glue-kit form, but oh, well!)

    And yeah, all of those sound good to me. The leafer '02 ram could fit into any number of classes. if it's a monster, then class one monster trucks. if it's a regular lifted truck, it could fit into either the street-legal mud-racer class or the Tough truck class. (i never thought about it, but there could be a number of cross-over vehicles btween tough-truck and street-legal mudder. I'll leave it up to the entrants on which class they want to be in.)

    Can't wait to see what you guys are working on.!

  • I`m definately in! I`ll be building either the AMT or Revell Grave Digger, whichever is more detailed, cant remember atm Tongue

    On the bench (cos I see people put that in here!):

    * Scratchbuilt Peterbilt 351 (finished)/Fruehauf tanker - The Duel Truck

    * 1977 Pontiac Ventura 'Cannonball Run 2011' CBP Entry

  • i to am very happy to see everyone joining in, i picked up the final kit i need to get started on monday, an older s10 for equalizer. hey mcss8788 which avenger are you going to do? the old s10 or the 57 chevy? and which color the green one, the orange one, the orang and green one, or the chrome one? im just curious as the 57 chevy will be a future build for me, so i'd love to see someone else do it as well.
  • Thanks Scream. So far, for sure, I will be entering the Dragon Slayer. I might have more to enter but the deadline is a little short, I think.

    Posssible entries would be BACKDRAFT, BUILT FORD TOUGH BLUE THUNDER or BIGFOOT #16 with the 30th anniversary paint job. Until then we shall see......................
