there is nothing wrong with it...as long as your club is willing to regulate the speed controllers....the 21.5/lipo combo didnt have any problems(bad) till the esc came into play with all the advanced time stuff...the SPX,Tekins are really the blame..imo....but with some light modifications on the profiles the class settles really nice into a seprate tc class...with a different feel and drive experience....
we ran these at the Novak,Grand Prix,Scale Nats and alot of clubs are using this as the guilde line for the class..incl us and most of the clubs across the country....
"USVTA will be the CURRENT rules on the website with the following
No one ways - diff or spool only
Tekin max Vegas 200 NO TURBO
Mamba pro NO CHEAT MODE
LRP SPX profile 4
LRP TC Spec profile 6
LRP SPHERE Comp profile 6
KO BMC TBD
SpeedPassion Software versions 091231 and any software start with 10XXXX are illegal
No Black diamonds whatsoever
Final ESC rules will be announced before the race...will be very similar to Novak race, timing may be restricted as well "
most are also going to this formula for RCGT as well...
but also bare in mind that the "NEW" rules for USVTA events will go into effect Sept 2010...and they work as well....work with your local club to see what works for yours...Im USVTA all the way but I think my club will continue with the 21.5....I have two 25.5's and the really do have a different feel...but I still think a FDR limit will help in not burning them up....yes I did ...sucks too...
good luck and report back on any questions you may have...cya
