for guys who run both USVTA and USGT, how much of a difference are you noticing on your setups on your vehicles?

I am think of just picking up the motor and body and inbetween classes or when my daughter can't race swapping the car over to USGT specs and running right away.

Thoughts?

This would be some xray T3 2012s if that helps.

I run the same type of chassis for VTA, USGT, and TC. I find that my VTA requires more roll stiffness in the rear than the front (probably because the rear tires are wider than the front). The USGT has roll stiffness nearly equal on both ends of the car.

I also run an open (ball diff) on both ends of my VTA to minimize the horsepower lost in a viscous diff, and to maximize lateral acceleration. The USGT needs more viscous coupling in the front (gear) diff to keep it stable under trail braking into corners.

I picked up a cheap TC3 for my daughter to use, makes it a lot easier then swaping everything over.

Ride tires were pretty good today. Feel balanced and I don't even think they are fully broken in yet.

Thanks, I found them after posting this. I have never ordered from them before, are they ok to order from? How are there bodies? Shipping is a little high but I could order a couple to offset that.
