Two went out, 3 more to go lol. Everything is together just gotta box em. Will go out this week.

Next year everything WILL be done at least a month before buildoff deadline so I have time to package stuff. But who knows what there are for prizes next year.

That's the hope! That's also assuming I actually enter! Wink Dang, I hope I can do this. I was going over some ideas yesterday, and holy cow. I'm biting off quite a mouthful. But- even if I'm not sure if I can finish in time, I might enter anyhow. Keep things entertaining.

i think a video of its intended purpose must be required for subjecting to being claimed a finished build with it in action to show the purpose of the build...just a suggestion for the 2015 build off

That's basically a given. In order to qualify as being finished on order to be allowed to be voted upon, the builder has to prove to our administrative staff that it qualifies. While no rule actually SAYS "You need to make a video", it would be kinda silly NOT to...

As the rules are now, people without video capibility can still officially participate. Of course most people can take video anyway one way or another.

What's everybody think they're building this time anyway?

Well in order to officially qualify, it has to meet criteria. And if we cant confirm it meets, then theres no making it to voting.


Rite?

I figured if you had it all slapped together and rigged up as per the rules and just took some pictures you were technically good. Since the rules don't state you had to take video. If you had some detailed pics of wiring and throttle linkages ect, at least you could see that it's hooked up. I suppose there were no issues last year. This year Doc is going to travel around to personally check all the finished builds and make sure everything is official.

That is what I did. I didn't have my youtube channel set up when the build off was taking place. I have tons of old video from that summer but just never got uploaded.

This is EXACTLY why our system is set up the way it is.

You MUST begin with a dated pic showing a password that nobody knows until the start date- so you cannot dig up old pics. From there, progress reports (this IS a forum) monitor the build. A LOT of careful consideration went into creating the system...
