have to disagree on that one, we have received questions from Germany, Brazil, New Zealand (just to name a few).

I wouldn't short sell this class at all, it has plenty of appeal, probably the biggest being that people can identify with the bodies (unlike TC bodies), here in Australia (and other places i'm sure) there is allways laughter, joking and plenty of fun on race days. And probably the most important (and we do it here) its a family time (dads/mums + kids).

My local track has really messed up VTA here. They said their running roar rules ( as a few now have the $160 phantom motor). And they said roar rules are 1450 grams so that's what their running the cars weight.

So i was thinking..I want to advertise on my car the saying "USVTA LEGAL" i looked for some stick on letters and came up with nothing. Do any of you decal guys have something ? I was thinking like nice lettering on the rear window.

Someone is out of their mind and has missed the entire point of VTA. Sad...

Cool that you receive some questions that doesn't mean there is a class or will be. I have nothing against or for the class, just sharing info.

It is a sponsord event from LRP and HPI Called the LRP-HPI Challenge. There are 5 classes during that event of which the classic class is one. (in 2013 there are 4 classes as the formula 1 class has been dropped). They have to use a specific chassis and HPI bodies.They use LRP 17.5t motors and esc. Yes the body is from HPI it is a TA , you are right but there is no class outside the LRP/HPI event. On the local LRP/HPI events the classic class gets 6-8 cars. The big lrp/hpi event had more. Just sharing info.
