What should my FDR be? The club I race at has no FDR restrictions.
Does anyone have any suggestions on a good starting point for set up? A set up sheet with the set up information you suggest would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Tell me about CVTA. It sounds like you are running on a modified version of the Gen2 USVTA rules, Or I could say that it sounds like you are running on USGT rules with VTA bodies.

I would start with a popular Rubber tire set up for the 6.1 chassis. Your Servo and speed controller both sound like great options, assuming they are legal where you race. I would also suggest having parts ready so that you can be legal by the USVTA rule set. That way you can come to the big races. FDR is a local thing. What are the dimensions of your track and how long ist the straight? How are the technical sections?

In Western Canada we run a close modified rules set. VTA but 21.5 with a FDR 4.2 ROAR esc. On indoor carpet tracks 100ft straight.

Here's a very cool option for 1/10 scale VTA driver figures. This is a brand new product just announced by HPI today...

Okay, maybe I don't get it, but why would you want two drivers in a VTA car?

Why not? It's a fun class. Do something different.

I just wonder if the scale is right for VTA. That set is about right for a Slash.

Ok so I got a HPI AAR Cuda body. I put some stripes on the hood and on the rear deck. I painted the main body black.

Should I do the stripes orange or white? Im having a hard time deciding! lol

One of my favorite shells that I have ever seen anybody paint Myron. Very nice use of the tray with the T-tops. Good colors too.

Im sorry I was busy thinking how awesome a straight black Cuda would look. I would paint the spoiler black as well and lay the stickers to it. Cseils has some awesome custom stickers or ahem decals for it.
