If you've watched the video, you can tell that this section of the asphalt has seen better days. It still is in good enough condition to have fun/competitive racing though. I'm basically looking for some general setup ideas or tire prep suggestions I can share when running on low grip/bumpy asphalt.

Thanks for the help.
last time I ran mine outside, on a track with similar characteristics, I used paragon full front/rear and tire warmers.. traction and warmers on as I finished marshaling (give or take a few minutes), then let them bake until the start of my heat..

I used to do full rear and 1/2 fronts - but found full front/rear was better

Most VTA bodies mount that way. Offset body posts wouldn't offer the same level of stability anyway - and that's a concern since you're using one of the heaviest bodies made for VTA...

Place the holes in the rear window when mounting the body - it's probably your best option.

HPI has some offset rear body mounts , that I have used on a TC6. They move the mounting point back about 1/2 inch. Sorry I can't find a parts #. I think it's an A4??

Not sure if you mean USVTA membership numbers, which you would get from joining on their site, or just random numbers to apply to the car. There are a few guys here that make decals, I believe CSeils is one you can try. I forgot who-else makes them as well.

Where in Florida are you going to be running?

I am building a car to run when I can....my main guess on racing will probably be snowbirds if it is still a class....and I just meant the stickers for the car numbers not to register for it

Any updates on GTB3 being USVTA approved let alone roar approved? I just signed up for the Halloween Classic and it looks like I have to buy a speedo to replace my GTB3 so I am legal for this race. Could the USVTA Gods please give there blessings for the GTB3 speedo.

As long as ROAR gives it the thumbs up, then you can run it. Not sure exactly were to look, but there are updated list of approved ROAR esc's out there.

Is the ROAR approved label good for all USVTA racing or just the Halloween Classic?
