While a legal way for kids to get involved in this great sport, remote control rock crawlers are also an affordable way for big kids to have some great 4×4 fun in the outdoors. Mini Tuff Trucks have been seen around Tuff Truck for years, but hopefully we see a lot more as we announce the Mini Tuff Truck Challenge.
An Australian RC Crawling official will design 2 courses in the Mini Tuff Truck RockCrawl course on Friday. The course is open all weekend to anyone prior to the Sunday morning competition. This is part of the great kids activities on offer.
The guys at Go Hard Hobbies have generously offered some great prizes for the little Trucks of Tuff Truck turning this into a real competition.
Two classes will be run, each with a different prizes:
Scale Truck Class Prize
- 1st Prize: 3Racing Working Winch inc. Warn winch stickers (RRP $30)
- 1st Prize (under 16s): Axial Exterior Detailed Parts Tree (chrome mirrors, wipers, etc) UNIVERSAL Fit (RRP $25)
2.2 Rock Crawler Class

Stage Manager’s Report
The Go Hard Hobbies Mini Tuff Truck RockCrawl was a roaring success, with over 50 entrants across 3 classes and many spectators to cheer them on. Most entrants were under 16 and therefore were eligible for prizes. Everyone put in a great effort and competition was fierce but friendly. A few kids even owned their dads on the course!
Outlaw class was won by Cooper of Mullion Ck, and 2.2 class was taken out by Drew. Both kids are keen to return next year to defend their title. They’ll have to work hard, because numbers of competitors are sure to be up next year, with more tracks to complete and harder lines to conquer.
