First VTA and now USGT is on the rise in our club. The 21.5 formula is perfect for this class. Not to fast and not to slow. Looking forward to some cool GT action in Florida !

Ok our track is changing from VTA to USGT. The 25.5 most feel is too slow for our large outside track. I really like the HPI 7483 Honda NSX GT body. Has anyone run this body and if so how is it. I liked the Lexus IS F body but was told it was too top heavy. Any thoughts?

I have run the HPi NSX and it's pretty good. The Tamiya one is good too from what I hear.

I'm thinking about turning my current AE TC5 VTA car into a silvercan GT car. Anybody run one still and have any tips for me?

Just get an NSX (Honda V6 SUPERCAR) It's basically an Accord with the engine in the back since you seem to be interested in a midsize sedan

I ran the HPI Honda NSX GT body at the Southern Nats, and set TQ with it...it worked just as well as most bodies do....

Default Thunder Jam #4

ok guys the time and days are going really fast.....Thunder Jam is just around the corner, and looking really good...

Like Ive said before, if you are going to Snowbirds in FL, this is a perfect race to get ready for it...plenty of fast guys to race against and a super smooth track with new carpet...and big enough to get that "BIG" race feel...and dont forget ...
"The Visitor from Sweden (Alexander Hagberg) will be here the 26th of Jan through the 29th but will not be racing the 29th. Our flight to the birds is at 3PM Sunday. He will be there all day friday and Saturday for those wanting to come run with us. Practice will be available for a special price!

EA "

But even if Snowbirds isnt in your plans...Thunder Jam has been a great event year after year for USVTA racers as well as TC and 12th scale..with the new track and an open door for alot of new racers, I can see VTA and GT being awesome...and as smooth as the track is I see a really good 12th scale class with TC

and above all else, its $5 more on the entry and carries a cash payout...in any class with 5 or more...and trophy as well for Jr VTA and VTA...

plus $25 CASH for overall concourse winner and Final Race of the Night
USVTA Super Main...VTA cars will go 50 laps. Winner will take home $50 Cash...

its a win win for all the racers attending the
4th Annual Thunder Jam Championships..(Birds Warm-up) Sunday Jan 29, 2012 @ Thunder RC Raceway in Nashville,TN

call for more info...615-851-1876 ask for Battman


http://www.thunderrcraceway.com/

what are you running?...

Im in for 17.5 TC ROAR Spec

Anyone having problems with Solaris wheels cracking on their USGT's? I'm more prone to hitting the wall than others, but I think their plastic is a little brittle maybe? The black set I have seems to be worse. Maybe I just need to replace my sets more often?

Mine have done that, I think it's just from having too many "board meetings" as nobody else in our group really seems to have this issue. I just continued to run them as it didn't seem to upset the car.

I used to have that problem with c-hubs. Turns out if I don't hit the boards, I don't break them.

but seriously. I run Solaris in my 17.5 TC and I have not seen that (and I still hit the boards)
