Looking for something to do the 1st weekend of March? Come join us at Summit Rc Raceway in Fort Wayne Indiana for the 1st (hopefully annual) USVTA indoor carpet nationals.

We will offer both painted and unpainted, we wanted to make our bodies a cut above the rest.
who will be stocking the kits and unpainted bodies?

so the bodies are not 200 mm so that means they are 190 mm ?

will you make a 200 mm for us vta racers?

I have a TC4 that I'm setting up for VTA. What body posts are people using to mount their VTA bodies? I have the stock ones on right now but the front seems too low and needs to go up 1-2 more holes. Is there an aftermarket one people use with the TC4?

To answer the gear diff question .... I have seen a TC3 with a TOP Photon micro-pro gear diff installed posted here on RCTech so it is possible.

So, as has been mentioned many, many times, and even the pictures above show, these bodies get some serious abuse. What are some of you guys running for front bumpers? I'm wondering if it's possible to custom fit a body hugging bumper so even if the car does "tap" a board occasionally, the impact can be transferred to the bumper rather that mashing in the front of the body.

These were a collection of racers from NJ, NY, Pa, De, and Md....May have been some from outside that area...not sure. I'ma say around a 1-1/2 to 2 hour radius of Horsham

There was some talk about including them, but the decision not to run them was due to time and space restrictions....Plus, for the paved onroad Nats at Jackson last year, I think they only got a heat of VTA.
