Does anyone know any of the basic rules to the trail class? I am wondering if my rig will fit into this class or not.

Basically, most all vehicles that hit the trails now will be able to compete in the Stock trail class (with some safety mods - 4pt belts and a rear facing amber light). In other words, if you have a full bodied vehicle that is on 60's and coil overs you don't have to move up to the Modified class and race against buggies
I also noticed that nothing was said about hydro-assist or full hydro steering.
Last year, it seemed that full hydro was not allowed in any class. (rules: Stock 6.3.8.1 and Mod 6.4.7.1)
Also, window nets are "highly recommended" but not required.

A quote from Big Rich on pirate - "The TRAIL classes are intended to open up an arena for rigs that have been built as stout trail rigs, no more than that"

Sounds like fun racing, without having to build a "race only" rig
