I completely agree. VTA racing does bring about a lot of whining. My local VTA club posts a lot of crying and whining on the LHS's forum. In response I have created a sign for all their crying...

I'd be more worried when the complaining stops...because then it means everyone has quit or moved on to something else. I'd rather have a good debate with someone that cares about the class and its long term survival then it be like 12th scale or WGT where everyone has gotten fed up and left.

Remember, in order for VTA to be effective in reviving on-road RC, it not only needs the new drivers to buy into the idea and the hobby, but it needs the experienced drivers to help them along as well.

Let me preface this by saying that this is in NO WAY bashing VTA, but at the two tracks I race at most, WGT is a class that has actually picked up several entries who were VTA racers.

It doesn't matter what the class is, there's always gonna be someone who wants to complain. Just keep positive and tout the positives of your chosen class. Those who agree with you will race with you. Those who don't will choose another class.

Don't know if I can totally agree but I understand where you're coming from. I'd like to think that those of us who really appreciate the class wouldn't need to take the pacifist route. Maybe thats what it comes down to . There will always be a difference of opinion on the goals and focus of the class unless the rules force the issue. The racers will be the ones to always push the envelope of the rules and define the focus of the class. Thats unfortunate because it forces more and more rules to keep things in line. If the rules aren't made then we simply hope for the best and keep doing what we're doing. Man, I sure have a better appreciation for TCS now. All those rules but the program is still running after 17 or 18 years.

Walmart has Poulan backpack blowers for $149.95. That's 180mph. Perfect for drying off the track or dusting it on a dry day.
