I would like to see a few pics as your going if you don't mind.

I will be running it for sure in the class.

No prob on the pics, i need to get it painted up first though, with the weather out here, I am not looking forward to sitting out in the garage painting.

no racing until February 20th it looks like. I am hoping though to maybe get in some racing action before that.

I did get back in my tekin 21.5 motor that was out to be repaired. Sent me a new unit, just not sure if I am going to run it or sell it and get another ballistic since I can change the stators.

The video is pretty cool. Can't believe I was flipped off!!

The track layout was nice and flowing also. Very nice!

I can't believe it, a flame Camaro paint job and a police car body in the VTA. Those paint schemes clearly weren't used in the TA racing. lol

Good to see you guys are having FUN with the class.

I was reading through the rules of the vintage / trans am series, and was wondering if I can legally swap out my gears on my TC3 from 48p to 64p? If so whats a good base line? Im running a Novak 21.5 and Havoc ESC... Thanks.

Gear pitch is a matter of choice,the is no rule for 48p or 64p the only rule for gearing is the FDR limit for 21.5 and come Sept.that will be done away with also.

if you want to change something I would just leave the current rules for your local club...and let that be the end of it...or maybe modify it some..exp..

current USVTA rules...except
no adv esc...incl SPX,RS,RS PRO,KO,ect..
any pre-1975 American Muscle Car
driver optional

and let that get you a very good starting point to an already great class...

dont change to much cause you will be right back to square one...and if thats the case, you need to start a totally new class....and since RCGT is taken, very slow TC sounds wrong..lol...just work with the current rules and see what happens...

I would like this class to start getting some respect in the r/c world..and if we dont start sticking together we will remain the bottom class of r/c racing, and not to mention getting pushed off major national races like Snowbirds and such...
I agree with this 100% especially leaving the driver figure as optional.
I used to race TC back when it was very popular, I really think the "slower" speeds of the VTA make this more fun. Lets all get together and help this segment of the hobby grow. We need more carpet tracks IMHO.

1 other thought.. why not leave as an option either the 4cell 27 turn stock..or even take it to 6 cell 27 turn.?
