(cheering) – Scale truck challenge, Rude Boy’s RC RC Sparks 2017 (engines revving) – [Narrator] First event, the hill climb But it doesn’t start at the bottom It starts at the steeper area up the hill itself Huge crevice going down the middle and you just can’t quite get the steepness but it certainly is banked at the top where those guys are Everett, what’s going on dude? – It’s going down – [Narrator] You ready for your first hill climb competition? Brought your Wraith today? – Wraith, yeah it’s back at the camp I’m gonna be running it a bit later – [Narrator] Yeah that’s okay Three S Lipo today I believe – Three S, yeah – [Narrator] And I got my tracks here to run up I might as well get up there – You are marking in the hill climb category So there are still two judges at camp – [Narrator] We’re running in groups today, so this is the first group All the judges in the film crew go first so we can judge and film everybody else Some of the Rudeboys here Joe, here ya go Pres Good luck! – We’re finally waiting for my wind controller get here but we’ll just deal with it – [Narrator] Nice truck, Joe Love the rims (motor squealing) And we’ve been waiting all year to see a new TTC Right by my boot, you’re in big trouble Oh, nice job Look at the crawl! Up the shale, nice First gate, that’s how hard the first gate was Because he touched the flag, he is pointed on that gate The whole goal of the TTC is to have the lowest amount of points and the lowest time These are timed events, I believe five minutes each (background chatter) Backing down- completely legal Backups do not count as points against you The more scale accessories you have on here, the more points you get at tech-in Each point you get gives you a deduction in points later on So the more scale gear and accessories, I.e. gas tanks, jacks, everything else, helps you in the long run (truck motor whining) James up, puts his trail finder Mighty cool looking, love the back bar on it Great protection for the cab Snorkel, of course Driver on the inside And there he goes What you can’t tell is this truck is in a six foot gully

Lyle, from RC Athletes starting on his first gate What ya doing, Lyle? – [Lyle] One gate, one roll over (motor whining) – [Narrator] Good job, that’s a hard course Good job – Woo! – [Narrator] What’s up, Chris? – Not much, hill climbing!
