Any tips or tricks to gluing these tires up? They seem to be a pretty big pain. Never glued any onroad tires before. Always used premounts.

I am going to be starting to get into VTA at the local club after watching some this weekend.

I will be going with a ta05v2 IFS chassis since I have one and its getting replaced by a Xray T4

Anyone run this chassis in vta? it will be 21.5t bl spec

also its 190mm body but as far as i can find all the vta are 200mm bodies.... so will have to run a offset for the wheels?

The 200mm is measured at the rear fenderwell. You guys have a wider selection of bodies than we do, 50g lighter, and a 21.5 instead of a 25.5 like we run. Thats cool, I'll have to look up some of those bodies to see what they look like.

Default 25.5 motors

I'm trying to get a consensus on timing for the 25.5 motors. Who runs full timing and who runs no timing etc?

thanks for that info.. I noticed the 2 different wheel sizes when i was looking and was confused a little...

our club rules are pretty simple

Motor: 21.5 Brushless motor ROAR Approved
ESC: No ESC timing or boost.
Battery: ROAR approved 2S Li-po hard case batteries only
Tires: HPI VTA Spec tires
Weight: Minimum weight 1450g
Bodies: Vintage Trans-Am spec bodies only. Driver and/or lights preferred, but not required.

Does having the offset in the rear help? I didnt notice anyone at the club having a offset,

Actually looking at doing lights in the next body I have, anyone have suggestions on how to do it fairly realistically? Probably going to be using a Javelin, if not, I'll be using a Camaro or Cuda/Challenger. Top choice being the J71. I know I've done Led's in a short course body before, mainly to keep direction well when running on a track with dark spots at night, I'd prefer for this to be more scale looking. Getting 4 lights for the front seems it'd be fairly easy, the back tail lights might take a bit more ingenuity. I'm also going to do this so there is minimal worry of them falling out during a race, as I'd hate to lose because of lights......

Unless you create some sort of reflector (from old flashlights or something) it is more difficult to make the lights look scale. One technique some of the locals have been using is to not paint the lights (head or tail) then apply the stickers and shine white LED's through them. The rears look red through the tailight stickers and the fronts white. It also difuses the light and makes them look more like the shape of the actual light and not the pinpoint of the bulb.

Make sure the wiring is all loomed and attached firmly and out of the way, as that is the biggest worry, wrapping wires around an axle or belt. Many of the USGT drivers here run lights all the time and while the light's don't always survive the race, the cars usually do.

I'm actually going to try to find LED's (or something similar) for the front that are as large as the same size as the sticker. The taillights, I'm less worried about. Yea, the wires being outta the way of the axle is my largest concern. Any pics of local guys rides that do the lights?

I also guess I meant more size wise scale, the reflectors etc, will take more planning and thought, though I'd like to go there sometime.

It sounds like you will be building your own light harness. Be sure to use the proper resistor for your led choices. you can use 12v lights but they will be way down on brightness. its better to use a 2 v led and resist the input voltage so it doesn't burn out.

as far as securing the harness.....duct tape it to the inside of the body. holds securely without adding a lot of weight.

Somebody please clarify. No LED's are required for USVTA racing. Correct?
