Seeing the tank crushing the Prius makes me wonder what it would look like is the batteries got a dead short.

Sure that "Monster Prius" might bite back, but this Prius GT 300 will blow your doors off!

For USVTA the stock Novak 12.3mm Sintered Rotor that comes with any Novak 25.5 motor is the only rotor allowed. Using other "option" rotors is strictly illegal in USVTA races.

Did he mean motor? I mean you answered him well either way, but It looks like he is asking what sized motor.

If you put a ton of time in painting the first one, you will probably get your feelings hurt when you blunt the nose in the first corner. Squirt something simple on one so you wont get your heart broken when it gets beat up. If you do a super pretty one, set it aside for a while. Maybe save it for a big race. Thats just my MO.

Yes as I was going through the motions of starting VTA my first reaction is go big but reality is I will destroy it or it will get destroyed by others. Going to do a rattle can two tone and a number on what I have not decided on.

Besides the few that came back from Vegas, I haven't seen any here. For me, they are not going to be available until late November or early December.

That's about all I know, which doesn't answer your question
