PM me for details.

Go VTA, it is the most popular class at our track.

For those of you asking...yes I can make these in a paint mask. Just think, you could do a whole stenciled look kinda like I did with the skulls but "VTA Legal" completely covering the body...



...Sure it wouldn't be a traditional race theme and possibly wouldn't fit the "Spirit of VTA" paint rule but there would be no doubt what was under the hood.

Anyone interested in coming to a really nice hobbyshop and great race event, wanted to bring up the 2013 Sweep Challenge at Middle River Hobbies and Raceway, happening January 5th and 6th. As of late we've been running USVTA minus drivers figure, I will clarify that as well as it says we are going by USVTA rules, however that would be the only difference if any.

2013 Sweep Challenge at MRH

Hotel info to come, there are a few local places that did group discounts last year, I will update ASAP with that info.

hey ive been watching this thread for quite some time and finally just got the ambition to convert the old tc3 to vta ready, its nice seeing it run again. my question is for the guys running the proform javelin body, what is the best way to secure the nose to the body? i want it to be strong and sturdy so it wont get ripped off the first time i get clipped or kiss a board, but i also want to be able to change it out when it gets mangled. any ideas?

The 0 offset rims are the front rims and the 6 offset are the rear rims they are also different widths. The fronts are 26mm and the rears are 31mm. Per the rules you have to use fronts in the front and rears in the rear so you cant use fronts all the way around or rears all the way around. Hope this helps and enjoy!!!

Most guys use shoegoo to hold it in place then use screws and nuts to hold it together after that....two on each fender and 3 on the hood should do the job. You can also use some shoegoo and drywall tape after its screwed together for extra holding power if you want. Some also use servo tape and screws its up to you and how hard your boards are on how secure you need to make it.

I just put together a new Javelin body and am trying only the screws this time. Seems to be holding up very well after a long race weekend at the indoor champs. I drilled holes slightly smaller than the screws so I could actually screw through the plastic and then secured with the included lock nuts. I used shoe goo on the last one and it worked fine also. You don't want any slop in the holes. The body should last a long time. My first one is over a year old now and still in use.

sweet thanks alot guys. also ive been going back and forth on batteries lately, i bought my chassis with a roar legal venom 2s1p 5000mah 40c green pack and was considering purchasing another one because of how much i like it until i read other posts about the packs being a 50/50 shot. just wondering what some of the better if not best roar legal 5000mah packs that are at least 35c (i plan on running these packs in other vehicles that require a higher c rating than my vta) looking for something that will last and have excellent power delivery

My personal favorite Lipo battery is the Trinity Titanium VTA-edition 5000mah 7.4V 50C. You can get them for $63 at this web page.

You should try EAM's. Extremely consistent through the run and VERY punchy!
