EA Motorsports has a VTA specific battery that has a 70c 5000mAh rating. These are some great batteries, I own 4 of them. They balance easily, have great punch thru out the run, and for the price they are more than worth it! I run them in USGT also with same results

EA won't have something if it is not fast AND top quality!

No cracks yet!!!
Very happy with this body!!
Cool.
I'm very partial to the Protoform J71 body. I love it and it just works for me. My Firebirds are being painted right now, so I will give that a shot next.

What are you doing in here! Yes, one ways are allowed.

The main thing with ESC is that they have to be blinky only and no BOOST option. I think the only speedo that maybe added is the new tekin one that was run in that spec class, but I am not even sure if or when that would happen.

---- MOPAR is quicker then me I guess.

This could prove helpful!! I've had my A700 working very well (although not of late) in VTA. Would be nice to see someone else local running the car for VTA, even if not often.... Between John Choi and I, we have had our cars working well, I need to stop playing with my setup and go with what I know works...

If I am understanding what has been posted correctly, I think USVTA tests the ESCs before approving them for parity or else you would run into people just running X ESC since its "faster".

Does that sound right?

great guys - thanks for the help.
i've been running ORCAs for the past year --- not sure what is the best option for me

John Choi did a FANTASTIC job at the Halloween Classic. Just looking to see if we can improve upon that, if at all. I'm taking a note from the Mike Haynes playbook and will be starting w/ the Parma 10113 - 1970 'Cuda.
