again you reinforce why I say you shouldn't run this class at the club level.

Myron If Dirla is saying that you are too fast for USGT at club level then I would take that as a compliment.

I love the lights on the USGT car. I would like to have a dusk event sometime and have all of the cars put lights on and race maybe an hour into the dark. That would be a neat summer night event.

Im to fast for everything...might just start running open mod TC on foam..whatever...

btw...we had a great time today running USGT also...its a great 2nd class for VTA...also the Dynamites are working very well for me...ran very similar laps with the Xpatterns....

also I tried the Dynamite U groove....Ill pass on those...they are a miss when it comes to the class..the radial st are a better faster tire for me...

oh Snoop...the lights look so cool around the track...goto the video...its sweet

I was looking at the rules on the USVTA site and my interpretation is that the speed controllers are to use the VTA list and or Blinky mode. Is that correct?

Basically no boost or timing?

And the motor is 21.5, but it is no longer limited to Novak. Am I on target here?

you would be right Kent since roar sportsmen class is 21.5 the maunfactors have all jumped on the 21.5 bandwagon and brought out motors. and my $350 black diamond can get beat by a $60 citrix and it's just fine with me.
still only a small crowd for 25.5 motors but VTA is better off with the one motor choice just like running silver cans. it just works.
