MSD Scale Nationals

Posted by RC4WD on 5/24/2011 to Events
RC4WD was at the Montana Scale National in Helena Montana this past weekend to check out all the great builds and met some awesome people. This event is held each year in Helena and is the perfect setting for the largest scale event in the country. The weekend started off with some mild rain on Friday for the Class 1 and Class 3 trucks. Saturday the skies opened up and allowed for the Spec class, and Class 2 to be ran. Then Sunday was the Top Truck Challenge and again the sun was shinning down allowing for a great day for the TTC.



The courses were built into the side of a mountain. It tested both trucks and drivers to get to the courses.





Friday started off with Tech Inspection for Class 1 and Class 3. It was evident that the rain had settled in and it was going to be a long day for all involved. At the end of the day, only 5 made the finals.
