NO BIll .I'm not .George is . I just wanted to get these stickers for my
Buddies who all have 100% USVTA cars so we would all know who
Had a car that went through a full tech and passed just a fun friendly
Way of supporting USVTA and even if you would like one for your USVTA car
I would have one

And ps I show up to lots of races FYI
But I try to stay away from the rain outs and
Try to let the others know when I'm going to be out
Of town at a nationals or when I'm stuck at work watching
You all race and that's the one that sucks the most :-(

Below is the video from our VTA A-main last night. It is a great example of close racing on a small track. Basically all of the cars fast laps were within 1/10 of each other. We had Xray T4's, Schumacher MI4, AE TC6's , AE TC4 club racer, & Spec-R S1. One of the fastest cars of the night was the TC4 club racer using a Pegasus Big Fish body.

One small mistake could cost a racer one position, but often it cost several. Enjoy...

Can you guys give me some ideas on good (realistic) interiors/driver figures? Manufacturer/part number would be helpful

I'm running a Pegasus '70 1/2 Camaro if that helps.

I don't know how realistic these will look to you, but I like them. This will do two cars:

Those are the ones I use too. I make up a brace from spare lexan and shoe goo it to the underneath of the hood by the window and to the roof. Stays with the body.

After reading a blog entry by Ernest Provetti where he talks about discombobulation with all the racing rules amongst ROAR, EFRA, FEMCA, BRCA, JMRCA and IFMAR (See quote).

The message for my first blog. Let’s all work together. Let’s dispense of the "drama" that takes all the fun out of racing. Let’s support ROAR and hope the organizers around the country will start to make all their events "ROAR events" and we can all RUN ONE SET OF RULES! Consistency like this is what we need to grown and what our customers SHOULD WANT! There are no problems as long as they are "consistent and transparent".
I believe that "consistency and transparency" is exactly what makes USVTA the fastest growing R/C race class in the USA, . Anybody can just Google "USVTA Rules" and find a very complete and consistent rule set that leaves no question about what it takes to race USVTA. Ernest talks about how nice it would be if all the race sanctioning bodies could all RUN THE SAME EXACT RULES. Those of us who race USVTA all across the USA already know how nice that is.
