The Clodtalk May 2017 Truck of the Month Contest

Post by andymac0035 » Sat Apr 08, 2017 3:21 am

Welcome to our Clodtalk May 2017 Truck of the Month Contest!!!
Anyone is welcome to enter! (all entries MUST be in by next Sunday night following this posting)
The winner's truck/pic gets placed on the site's home page and featured in the winner's circle forum.


Your entry must have TWO good QUALITY pictures of your R/C.
Please try to keep pics in the 500-900 pixel range.....600-700 being ideal.....no tiny or blurry picks.
(HUGE pics will get re-sized, either by you, or one of us)
Your R/C must be whole (as in complete) and in running condition
Your R/C must be an off-road-worthy R/C.....that's it.

The ban on non-monster trucks....meaning crawlers and independent suspension trucks has been lifted.
That's right....want to enter your USA-1?, High Roller?, E-maxx? or Savage?.......go for it.
Buggies, short-course, stadium trucks, crawlers, scalers....you get the idea....and if you try and enter an on-road, it better be converted to a rally car.
Nitro powered R/C's are welcome in addition to electric BTW.

Complete listing of all rules: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=27055

The voting pole will be added at the end of the week.

i thinks we need more votes....

That's a thought, not sure how that would blend with the monthly though, as you'd want the winner displayed somewhere.


What I'd thought about doing sometime is letting you guys dive through the archives and pic a truck from the past you really like.
Like a nomination type thing.

Having no idea of the work involved, my thought was to put another section like the truck of the month winners in underneath, thing I can't quite work out is weither to just show the winner from the year for the year, which would get fairly boring quickly (atleast for me) or staggered time for the top 3 in a 5 month, 4 month, 3 month setup, or more with less time.

But as I said, I have no idea of how much code work would be needed to do this, and I'm just shooting from the hip on this.

Side note, need more votes people :)

One of the mods always holds back on voting till the end as a tie-breaker.
