I didn't mind getting the class specific stuff for VTA that made sense, whether it was for esthetics reasons or performance equalising reasons. All the tracks within a 200 mile radius of where I live ignore this rule though. No one wonders why it is ignored.

That's fine that they ignore the rule. They also race 17.5 single cell up there, and that's fine with me as well. If it works, I guess I can't argue with you. I just know what I have seen go wrong in the past, and i try to use that information to inform my decisions. I have been known to be wrong sometimes.

I have run VTA only at Roar races as it allows me to use my existing equipment. and yes these are Rob King's rules for the True rules of USVTA and I can only give him props for sticking to his guns.

I know Dirla is busting your chops, but you are a better racer because of it.

Knowing your crew, someone will just loan the offender a legal battery for the day.

As someone that asked the same question, I have to say the rules in place work, and work well. Rob...you are doing a great job with vta...Thank You!

Hi guys, just a note to say that we are looking forward to going all USVTA outdoors this summer here in N.J.

I can honestly tell you that we have so much more interest in USVTA among the newer/casual racers, and they are stoked to get racing! The idea of "one" motor is the biggest draw.

We went ROAR specs last season to support our neighboring track (Jackson) who hosted the ROAR nats.

FYI, since then, both Jackson and Horsham have gone USVTA to support our effort, so NJ will be USVTA friendly! I believe Brownies in NY is also onboard, so the northeast will be represented well....

Like many have said before, the USVTA formula does work, and I also commend RobK and all you USVTA supporters for keeping true to the concept!

We will be hosting a "regional" USVTA event sometime this summer, so hope some of you will think about coming....We are 30 minutes, and a straight shot, to Atlantic City, so maybe the family will want to finance your trip at one of the many casinos while we play with our toys....

More info soon....
