oooh, i so hope this comp is not just x-trucks, i have a modified micro dt that i'm itchin to show off...

EDIT: just read the rules in the entry thread, and i see its only x-mods, mods wouldn't by any chance be willing to broaden the acceptable range of chassis would they?, if not no problem, but thought i might as well ask just in case...

We didn't allow them into the car competition, so we're going to allow them into the truck competition. They are a truck, well, close.. Lol.

Cheers,

I don't see why not. Just has to be on a Xmods chassis that works.

i used to own a 79 ford ranchero, and they are tagged and titled as trucks. some people call them cars because they are based off of a car. the ranchero was basically an ltd with a bed. not sure what the elcamino was based off of on cars. haven't dug into them much

they really dont have much of a bed capacity unless you upgrade the suspension. i know in order to put my 4 wheeler in the back of my rachero i had to put some coil stiffeners in it. but yeah, you pay more to tag it than a car of the same year, because its a truck..........
