Hello, everyone! I'm proud to invite Eurobricks members to Jeep-trial competition, that will be held in Moscow at November 12-13 by Lego Technic Russia community (https://vk.com/technic_club). If you are ready to visit Moscow those days, we are waiting for you! Build the offroader, run it through obstacles as fast and accurate as you can and win Lego Technic sets! Also it is wonderful possibility to meet Russian Eurobricks members (RM8, desert752, filsawgood - they are main organizers of the event) and many other talented builders from all over the Russia and another countries. Of course, we will help you to set accommodation in Moscow and we will do our best to make sure you are enjoying visiting Moscow and participating in competition. Please, contact me as soon as possible in PM or post in this topic if you are going to come to Moscow and participate.

I've chosen this forum to post, because it seems to me that here it is more likely to catch as many Technic builders as it possible. 

Specially for Eurobricks forum I have translated rules of competition into English from Russian. My native language is Russian so mistakes are possible. Please, feel free to ask any question if something is not clear to you.

Wow, this is an awesome opportunity and I would love to participate, but sadly, Russia is so far away. Also, I need a Visa, and getting one is a lengthy process. But thanks for the open invite, I will definitely try to come, next year :)

Like rear axles at trucks. Two wheels instead of one.

I don't think you really need this. We have limited  width of obstacles. Heavy rear axle is disadvantage for trial

There are many chassis of other authors that were used on previous events. You can build and ask, of course, but I can't guarantee that anybody will decide to use your chassis:) I will share it, of course.
