Yeah if they would just make the nose piece that would be a ton better then nothing. After that to make it a firebird all someone has to do is either make a sticker sheet with the slotted tail lights, the louvers for rear fenders, small pontiac logo for rear side markers and the firebird for the front fenders. Can be painted easy enough but the stickers would be for the people who dont have the means to paint them. If they wont do a extra sticker sheet for this, I bet CSeils would.

What's the point of the extra nose? Is this a right of passage thing - after so many races you get a nose job? Or is it a clown thing? Or just for halloween?

I was going to also suggest Carl Seils for the decals...he does great work.

Yeah ive bought his manufacture (go fast) stickers a few times in the past and his quality cant be beat. Even being scraped down the walls they dont show a bit of damage and stand up to lighter fluid when using it to wipe scuffs off body after said wall scrape.

VTA was reborn last night in Indianapolis!

Indy RC (formerly Indy Slots) put VTA back on the schedule, and we had two heats the first night! The track is really a great size for it too.

These were the first guys... We had a heat of 5 and one of 6 I believe.

How about more racers? Its a known fact that not everyone cares for Novak motors....if Tekins not givin a chance then thats 3 manufacturers being kept out. Tekin, Trinity and Speed Passion.....let the discussion begin.

1. This has been discussed to death.
2. Do you really want to play "motor of the week" like all the other classes ?

more racers wont and hasnt happen...look at the ROAR races where any 25.5 and esc(blinky) is allowed...great races, but not for VTA where you only got 7-15 guys...

where on the other side of the coin..the USVTA races are tops...with 40-50 entries for the Scale and Southern Nats?

The USVTA is trying new things all the time, so you never know...but imo, the motor rule works great and I dont see it changing anytime soon....now esc's are being tested and we will see where that goes

any other thoughts on new motors?

no we dont...one motor works..and if you are not a fan of Novak...we would still have an issue with ppl who dont like Tekin or SP...double sided sword
