Very cool H. Does this one have reverse for practice? I love my Cirtix though. They work well.

What always killed us wasn't longer mains. It was the 5 minutes between rounds that ended up being 10 or more. That might have been a race director issue, but more likely it was drivers not paying attention due to the too much fun factor.

And we're going to assume YOU can handle a modified motor !? If you've ever tried a VTA car you'd know that our tires would make it a true handful. Not fun for the greater novice to sportsman level racers that we are. Lord knows if you're TRULY capable of racing mod then mod class is where you should be.

Well, I couldn't stay away from the fun for very long !! Our club, the Brevard Electric Auto Racers will be up and running again shortly. A couple of minor surgeries made it necessary to take a small break and I'm spending some time (and money !) to get some things fixed and rethink some goals. The one big thing is that we are now ALL USVTA, ALL THE TIME. Continued growth and interest in VTA and USGT proves to me that it's a good move.
Thanks to all you folks who continue to find the value in both these classes. It's the type of racing I always enjoy and always wanted to share with others.
If you're a race director, club manager or track owner offering VTA or USGT, I welcome a PM or Email with suggestions how to make our program get better.
Thanks again !!!

64P 48T pinion and a 96t spur will get you in the ball park, unless your at Leisure Hours.

I run a 88/53 in my tc5r with the Novak ballistic for a FDR of 3.32. Endbell timing on the 40 degree notch and came off after 6 min at 150 deg. My track is Mikes Hobby shop where the ROAR nats was held last month. I believe that's what the guy who came in second ran also. Anything in the 3.6 to 3.8 would be a good start until you can check your temps.

WOW!!!????!!!!

3.32 and 40 on the timing mark?

Are you running any cooling fans?

Can you post a link or picture of your track so we can see how big it is? That has to be one wide open track...

No fans. It is pretty flowing. This is the track the ROAR nats were just held at.
