    Default Summer challenge

    Busy planning a summer challenge @ Chloorkop. Looking at 13 Sept. Its now open to landy's, fords, toyotas, nissans, jeeps etc etc.




    Rules and handycap system for 10 obstacles at 100pnts ea =1000pnts. Handicap will be taken from 1000 points.
    • Lockerless 10 bonus points/ obstacle
    • Vehicle with one locker [front or back]
    • Traction control = double lockers
    • Different engine or cut body minus 200
    • Front lockers/crawlers minus 100/locker
    • 4" lift kits Minus 100
    Allowed mods.
    • Tyres
    • Suspension like ome, ironman
    • Replacement bumpers/towbars/sliders
    • Longer/revolver shackles
    • Safari equipped vehicles extra points, ie fridge, chairs etc etc
    Entry will be R200. It will include entry and prizes with the balance. Standard indemnity. There will be neutral judges, no wining, moans, groans etc etc.

    So now blom can come and shaun will have a chance to beat him. It will have 6 easy, 3 difficult and 1 riller obstacle. Entry will be limited to 15 vehicles only for control. Kom wys jou staal.

    Lewer nou maar kommentaar, moenie moan nie, suggest dan sal ek besluit. Ons sal ou vetseuntjie in PE laat moderate

    Herman, kies net 'n beter datum dat die Ford jou kan kom wys. Daai naweek van 6 Sept is 'n Sabi Sand mannekamp wat ek reeds voor ingeskryf is, so dit gaan nie werk nie

    Jy kan ook nie die double cabs, ens wat met 'n locker uit die fabriek kom penaliseer daarvoor nie. As jou datsun sonder 'n locker uit die fabriek kom is dit maar jou saak

    Jy mag wel mense penaliseer vir after market lockers

    Herman, I would suggest that you only penalize vehicles with diff locks or large engines if they were so modified, but not if they had these as standard equipment or factory options. In my opinion it would be interesting if at least part of the object of the exercise were to test vehicle ability as designed and produced. I am sure you are not afraid are you?

    Datum is nie vas nie en wil nie clash met ander datums nie. Ek is nie gepla om te ry nie, maar jy kan nie n dubbel locker voertuig vergelyk met n sanie nie. Ek sal n kroozer aanvat met sy lockers en gaan jou waarborg hy gaan sukkel, dink aan ander manne. Maar gooi die kommentaar!!

    Chloorkop is op die allandale pad van Kempton Midrand toe, Basies in kempton. Ek sal dit seker aanskuif sodat dit almal pas. Die Datsun sal soos gewoonlik weer wen, so ek dink daaraan om die ander manne te laat ry en ek sal baas speel. Pryse sal lucky draw wees, maar daar sal n wenner wees. Gaan maar kyk of ek so bietjie sponsors kan kry!

    No too far to drive for a weekend, but if planned well in advance then I would love to be camera operating spectator. Have family in PTA, but place to stay in near Brits (about 8km from Moegatle, so maybe Engeltjie must move the venue )

    Within limits. Die idee is dat almal kan deelneem en n kans het om te wen. Die punte het laas gewerk!

    Herman, ASB, ernstig, truth & all.
    Die enigste rede hoekom daai Datsun obstacles maak is omdat jy hom Bl1ksem teen n helse spoed en hoe revs.
    Jammerte, maar dit het ek al oor en oor en oor (which part of this does anybody find boring at this stage) gesien. There is no finesse in hammering an obstacle continously. If you don't make it, which isn't very often in my case, drive away & try another day.
    Die van ons wat weet vat dinge vreeslik rustig. Ek wil n obstacle op en af ry met n bier in my hand wat ek terselfde tyd rustig kan drink terwyl ek die obstacle ry.
    Die ding met die Datsuns begin nou effens te afgesaag te raak.
    Ja, Datsun/Nissan is goed (kyk na my Terrano - blerrie awsome) maar ek verkies Jeeps/Toyotas met crawler gears, lockers ens.
    Moet asb nie kom se ja maar my ding is groter as jou ding nie. Glo my, myne is groter.
    Been there, done that. Now I enjoy my outings. No need to brag/slag other brands like you're doing all the time.

    True, but you can't compare a vehicle with beam axles front and rear to an IFS-bakkie either, especially if you penalize it for using the standard locker.

    Perhaps you should define the purpose of the exercise (apart from having fun, of course).

    If the object of the exercise is to compare the abilities of basically unmodified vehicles off the tar, then all vehicles must be allowed to employ all standard fit technologies.

    If the idea is to compare driver abilities then classes have to be devised to eliminate differences between vehicle designs as far as possible, as is done for challenge events.

    In any case, it is your brain child and you can take it any direction you wish. Remember that it is easy to devise a scoring/penalty system designed to systematically favour a certain vehicle configuration...

    Dirk, jy moet ons kom join. Ek is seker iemand sal jou in Brits oplaai die oggend as jy op vlieg en nie self gaan deelneem nie (hel, as die datum reg is sal ek ry en jou oplaai en weer gaan aflaai). Ons maak 'n plan

    Bennie, ek stem. Daar moet eerder punte gegee word, al is dit bonus punte, vir voertuie wat oor 'n obstacle kan kom sonder om te spin, ens. Ons wil 'n kultuur skap waar ons so min as moontlik skade aanrig aan die omgewing. Met genoeg geweld kan jy jou vinger jy weet waar afbreek, maar dit vat baie meer skil om stadig oor 'n obstacle te kom sonder om te spin en die omgewing te beskadig. As dit beteken om eerder 'n locker te gebruik, dan is dit die moeite werd

    1. Almal wat moan was nie op die laaste challenge gewees nie, vra vir die wat daar was of dit fair en lekker was. As jy nie kom nie, moenie klippe gooi nie!
    2. Dit pla my nie om deel te neem nie, ek sal host.
    3. Meeste goed crawl ek uit so by the way. Met crawler gears kan jy net crawl. jy kannie alles crawl nie.
    4. As jy dit nie laaik nie, moenie kom nie.
    5. Penalty system is so that blom can come and enjoy met boesman but koos in his zook can beat him.
    6. the exercise is enjoyment and getting to know your vehicle. Mine is old and junk so it cannot be bigger or better than yours.
    7. Ek drink en bestuur nie, veral nie obstacles nie.
    8. Dis n quarry, nie die bosveld nie en niks fauna word beskadig nie.

    Ja Engel grootbek jy is reg en verkeerd
    Die ouens wat laas daar was sal se dit is noggal pret om engel te sien SPIN ? crawl ? engel ? jyt laas gekrawl toe jy 'n baby was

    Dit is so, 'n handicap sisteem sal lekker wees om die ouens op 'n gelyke vlak te laat kompeteer, dit is seker my en arnold se erenstigste topic as ons die biertjies om die vuur vasvat.

    so op dit m2cw
    Jy kan enige handicap sisteem uitdink en toepas!!!
    Die geheim le nie in die handicap nie
    Die geheim le in die baan , die baan moet van so 'n aard wees dat met die handicap beide kompeteerders op geleike voet is

    Ons het al probeer dis doners moeilik
