Playing in one on Saturday .. format i think .. on par 4's you take the best drive & you all play your own ball out from there , best 2 scores to count (4 person team) .. on par 3's & 5 's.. you all play your own ball & best 2 scores .. anyone played this ? am i right on the format .. seemingly it helps prevent against stacked teams of 2 big hitters & 2 along for their high handicap ..

new one on me - and what's the handicap allowance? normal scramble is 10%....

reading your description again I can't see the 'scramble element' - more like an 'am-am par4 team greensome thingy'

Not played it but it sounds pretty straight forward. Par 4's are played as scrambles and the 3's & 5's are just played outas better balls. Unless there's other rules you've not mentioned it still looks like the longer hitters will benefit on the scramble holes.

The OP said that you play out your own ball on par 4's as well after all playing from best drive. Not that much of a scramble about it.
