Would be good if they could but probably not economical.

I'd be interested to see what Exotek would come up with.

Dont know about integy or 3racing, but I use associated 6.8mm in the rear and 8.7mm in the front of my VTA. Both require low profile nuts and the 8.7mm requires the longer 2402 cva's.

That's too expensive! Just get wheel spacers from tamiya, schumacher, xray, etc.... Much better deal, unless your rims are shallow...

most racing wheels have around 2-3mm hex depth.

I know wheel design can be a limiting factor, but the Sweep spec Tires qts 32 Tires can take 2.5mm easily for a total of 4mm more in track width... The Exp40's max at 1.5mm though...

I've just bought my first (used) on road rc car. I've owed a few other RC in my life including a original RC10 back when I was a teenager. I've just recently got the bug to get back into the hobby. I bought a used TC4 off this forum and have decided I'd like to give VTA a try.

What kind of gear (budget gear) should I be looking at just to get running? The car Red-Line mo3 sold me already has some upgraded parts but I still need all the electronics.

I'm not sure how long it will take me to read through all 800+'pages of this forum so I thought I'd start with a mini intro.

Thanks for any help!

If you want to give VTA a try check out the rules on the website.

http://www.usvintagetransam.com/rules/index.html

They've listed all the part numbers you'll ever need.

Shoot for a 4.0 FDR on your gearing and you'll be in the ball park.

Some of those motors and ESCs can be purchased used since they've been discontinued but check out Tower Hobbies or your local hobby shop for the current stuff.

Good luck.

First find out what rules are being used where you plan on racing, vta can use usvta, roar or even outlaw rules.

ESC you cant beat the JUSTOCK
MOTOR under usvta it can be any 25.5 novak, under roar any brand is fine, hard to say no to a SPEED PASSION its just as fast/slow as the novak and only $38
BATTERY dont need anything special, a 5000mAh will be legal under both rule sets and is more then you will ever need, I like the REEDY
GEARS get a ROBINSON 48p 55T spur and couple pinions from 35-43T
WHEELS HPI 4793 & 4797 with whatever rims you like

Go out and have fun

Thanks for the replies.

Here are the rules from the local track in Kansas City Fastlane Raceway:

TransAm
4WD TC chassis
4 cell NiMh batteries with ROAR approved 17.5 Brushless or 27t, 24 deg brushed motors
ROAR Approved 7.4v Lipo with Novak 21.5T brushless motor
HPI Vintage treaded tires and vintage wheels
1450g minimum weight

With that listed what are your suggestions for a motor/esc setup.

This is a newb question but what does the acronym FDR stand for?
