We Are Back from the 2017 East Coast Scale Challenge and We Have Got Video!

I’ve been a racer for many, many years, but I’m always up to try something different in this awesome hobby.

Recently, I made my way to New Castle PA for the 2017 East Coast Scale Challenge, an event not only designed for trail trucks, but one that awarded you for making them as scale as possible. The setting was Rose Point Park, a quiet campground surrounded by lots of tall, green trees. A couple hundred participants were in attendance, all with some pretty amazing builds that fit into the multiple classes available – Class 0, 1, 2 and 3 as well as the TTC.

There were plenty of highlights at the event – I’ve put together some of my favorites in the video below.


Stay tuned for a follow-up article on the link-converted RC4WD TF2 I built for this event – it’s pretty awesome!
