  • 2014 RC4WD East Coast Scale Challenge (August 22-24)

    In 2013, with the help of RC4WD, we brought a National Level Scale Event to the East Coast Hobby Community, that gathered close to 70 drivers, with 120 trucks, to a small town North of Pittsburgh, PA. Rick and Deb Yeager, owners of Rose Point Park, welcomed us to their Campground and 11 acres of unadulterated scaler heaven. Well, we must have been on our best behavior, because they are welcoming us back...


    WHEN: August 22, 23, 24 2014
    WHERE: Rose Point Park
    8775 Old US 422
    New Castle, PA 16101
    (724) 924-2415



    We will be following SORRCA Scale Rules (Current at the time)

    Tentative Schedule as follows:


    Registration will go through Eventbrite (Registration is not open)

    Tickets Prices are:

    Class 1: $35
    Class 2: $35
    Class 3: $45 (Chance for TTC)

    Saturday Night Awards Banquet/Pig Roast: $10 each
    Cheplic Packing is excited to come back...(We want to get everyone together for a nice sit down meal. We plan to do awards and giveaways at this time. You can attend even if you don't chose to eat off the roast pig(stuffed with Kielbasa/Hot Dogs), but you will miss out on a great meal. If your bringing the wife and/or kids, make sure to get extra tickets. There will be tickets available at the event in limited numbers. We have to prepare the food ahead of time)

    Event Shirts (Order at time of registration only):
    $15 (S - XL)
    $18 (2XL and up)

    Make sure you subscribe and check back here for latest information regarding our event.

    • Campground Reservations (Cabins, Yurts) will only be taken with an Eventbrite Order Number.
    • Only one unit will be able to be reserved per order number.
    • Any attempts to side step this will result in forfeiture of your registration fees and banned from event.
    • Camp Sites are available at any time (Camper or Tent)

    I am sorry to have to do this but unfortunately the old adage that one person can ruin it for everyone one, applies here.

    I will be forwarding all order numbers to Rose Point Park when I get them from Eventbrite. If for some reason, they don't have it (my real job gets in the way), don't give them a hard time...just give them the order number. They will hold the reservation until they verify that it is a correct.

    The faster you register for the event, the better chance you have getting what you want. Try to maximize space by sharing with others.

          Course information:

          1. We will be running 3 courses per class, with a finals course.

          2. The Finals will be the Top 5 drivers from each class. Points will carry over to The Finals.

          3. We will be deducting 50% of your scale points per if you have a 50 point truck and you are running 3 courses, you will end up with -75 scale points deducted from your driving score for the day. A 40 point truck will have -60 scale points total, etc.

          4. There will be a scale point cap of 60 points in Class 1, 50 points in Class 2, and 50 points in Class 3.

          5. We will be teching all rigs at registration. This is to save valuable time to run. It is on the honor system but at any point throughout the weekend we can call a tech on any rigs if we feel there may be something out of spec. Please don't put us in that situation

                It is with great excitement and honor to announce that John "Jester" and Bob "Garagedoorbob or GDB" (Founding Members of Tri-State Scale Outlaws) will be assuming responsibility for both the Course and Judging side of the Event. I have full confidence in their ability to offer all the drivers top notch, national level courses for the 2014 East Coast Scale Challenge. They will be working side by side with me on all aspects of the event so we can ensure an even better experience in August.

                Bringing these guys on board is going to not only help on the course and judging side, but also frees me up to make sure that the other aspects of the event go smooth. This year we will be bumping up the registrations for each class and also streamline some of the processes. With John and Bob at the helm on their side, I can collaborate with the sponsors and work on other logistics to make sure the whole event is flawless.

                I want to take a moment and thank both of them for stepping up in this important role that is vital to the success of ECSC14.

                    I want to reach out to all of you on this question...

                    First the reasoning behind it...I had received a lot of comments on the Show'n Shine... How it was handled, when it was scheduled, etc. Several people didn't like the idea that it was after we had run rigs...I sort of agree with that.

                    My thinking is that we have the Show'n Shine on Thursday Night. Gives everyone a chance to mix and mingle while we are checking in. Not sure on the complete schedule yet but with adding more registrations to the event, that I know all of you want, this would open things up a little.

                    Let me know if you will be in before 5pm on Thursday or not. Just remember that we start Friday Morning early so don't plan on driving in Friday morning and jumping on the courses...Just Saying... LOL

                      Sponsorship Packages went out to all the supporters from the 2013 event. I will then reach out to others. ECSC13 Sponsors have first right of refusal.

                      I hear that train a rolling...rolling down the track...
