Naturally aspirated[edit]

The article says engines are required to be naturally aspirated, then goes on to say that turbo diesels are now being used. A turbo charged engine is not naturally aspirated, right? Alumarine (talk) 16:25, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

The turbo diesel "fact" was not sourced by a reliable source and it read like original research, so I have removed it. You're right about turbos. They are forced air induction, not naturally aspirated. Now we need to find a source that says they're naturally aspirated. Royalbroil 12:51, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Merger with SCORE Trophy Truck article[edit]

I believe the SCORE trucks should be a sub-section of this article given the high degree of overlap. The "Vehicle Description" sections for example are almost indistinguishable (if not identical). - Oosh (talk) 00:27, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

  • Support I see no reason to have separate articles. Please contact User:Lphillippi to see why that article was created. I support articles for other off-road racing classes like Class 8 or whatever, but not this one. Royalbroil 03:19, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Support I also see no reason of having separate articles. Trophy Trucks is a class that only exists as such in SCORE International Erikpn (talk) 04:37, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
  • I have seen those races before, I believe that's a cheaper version of the trophy truck that's been used there, I could be wrong. Maybe you've seen actual trophy truck race there as it happens in the local races here in Mexicali with CODE Off-Road, but the class is not called SCORE Trophy Truck but Class 1 or other name.
