SCORE Tech Inspection Results of Riot and Revolt

I loaded up the Race Riot chassis and my Revolt and met up with Andy from SCORE to have a tech inspection of both chassis/assemblies. Here is a summary of what was discussed (and learned) after talking with him.

Race RIOT chassis:
=> Tubing material was measured to be 0.120" wall thickness. Requirement for a vehicle of this weight is only 0.095" wall thickness.
=> Tubing material is thought to be DOM, which is acceptable. Chromoly is preferred, but DOM is acceptable.
=> All gussetting looked good with the exception of the cross bracing on the B-pillar (B-pillar is next to your head running over the top).
=> Cross bracing on the B-Pillar MUST be in the plane of the B-pillar hoop. Unfortunately, the bracing of the B-pillar is behind it's plain. If cross bracing were to be added in the B-pillar plain it would be at least a foot into the seating area of the driver and co-driver. The only way to remedy this issue is to either move the seats forward or to re-design the entire chassis to push the B-pillar back and align all of the cross bracing. This is the only issue with the chassis..............but the most significant.

Jay's Race prep'd Revolt:
=> Andy didn't even check it out. Due to it's size and weight he stated that SCORE would never create a class for it and would never allow it to run in a SCORE event. I questioned this (stating that it wasn't much lighter than the RIOT which they were ok with) but that didn't matter. Fact is he felt the survivability after getting hit by a Trophy Truck was zero. He called Bill Savage (head tech manager for SCORE) just to verify this statement. Bill agreed.......no way would a Revolt be allowed to run in SCORE events.

We have already had Best In the Desert tech inspection performed. And that was all good. So we are planning to just run BITD for now and continue to discuss with SCORE the acceptance of the current setup.

Re: SCORE Tech Inspection Results of Riot and Revolt

And I believe that if theres enough of us that they will come up with one. As we are in a better place than the bikes and also all utvs go off after the trophy trucks.

We just need to step up and show that there are a few of us out there wanting to do this.

Re: SCORE Tech Inspection Results of Riot and Revolt

Agreed! The best course of action is to get a bunch racing and show it works! Another comment that was made is "That thing won't ever finish a race". That REALLY pissed me off when I heard that. I hate being told no! Or that I can't do something.

It's on!!!

Re: SCORE Tech Inspection Results of Riot and Revolt

It's going slowly. We were about to start swapping parts into the chassis a week ago and then noticed some bent areas on a stock Riot that has been driven hard. so.........we spent some more time beefing up link mounts and such.

Looking to start assembling in the next week or two.

More to come.........
