A few of our guys run usgt and vta. A couple run f1 as well. Some of us turned our vta rides into usgt cars but now we are thinking about building another car to race both. Usgt is just too much fun to change the car back. Need another chassis.

Here in Dallas we have a big group (10 - 14) of guys who race VTA every Thursday night. We also have a large group of F1 racers who show up every other Saturday. It's interesting how the VTA group and the F1 group are mutually exclusive. To each their own.

The 2012 Texas Electric On-Road Series has just finalized it's schedule. There will be 4 races:
#1 in Houston, TX on July 14,
#2 in Austin, TX on August 12,
#3 in Carrollton, TX on Sept. 9, and
#4 in Porter, TX on October 13.
A group of 6 VTA racers (known as the "VTA Voyagers") are planning to bring USVTA racing to each of the 4 cities in the On-road Series. Read more about these races at www.texaseos.net.

Unfortunate man. were lucky enough to have a group where all racers hang out and talk together. The vta guys get help and advice from the usgt guys and the tc guys (there are only a few) are always talking to everyone. The f1 guys also talk to and help everyone. Of course it helps when 4 of your f1 guys run vta or usgt as well. Come to think of it about half of the vta racers run a second class. Its really only the new guys that run one class and a few of them are already eye bailing a usgt or f1 as a second class.

It's not nearly as segregated as wwdw makes it seem. Everyone hangs out with everyone pretty much. We all pit together in the same area so it's not like each group is completely lonesome.

Also F1 is still a fledgling class at mike's, but it is growing. All of the other classes are a bit more established at this point in time.

Yes, hyujmn is right. None of the on-road classes are segregated. What I meant to say by "mutually exclusive" is that there is not a single F1 driver who also drives VTA. In fact there were at least 2 former VTA drivers who sold their VTA cars and bought F1 cars. However VTA is still the most consistently growing class with the most frequent races of any on-road class.

A very nice shade of green. It almost matches the wall in the background perfectly. Is that a Pactra spray paint color?

At our track almost everyone who races runs VTA, and then possibly some other class. I run VTA, USGT, and TCS Mini class. If F1 takes off again, I'll run that and drop the Mini class. (4 classes in a night is too much )

That green looks sweet, it is my usual color But I went red for VTA with SS stripes like yours but on the trunk too.

Find some green anodized wheel nuts, I found red ones, and your car will look ultra sick!

It's Pactra Metallic Green backed with Sprint White. It's a little darker in person, and I think the wall color maybe played tricks on the camera

Hey everyone, I have a question, My Novak 25.5 it clicking pretty loud when its installed on the chassis with a good gear mesh. I replaced the bearings in the motor and its still clicking. At speed it seems to go away. I can hear it the loudest when I run the belt by hand or at about quarter throttle. It isn't effecting my performance...yet. I have no idea what is going on. It is considerably louder then the rest of my teams motors. If anybody knows whats wrong, could you please reply. If this has been addressed, I apologize in advance. Thank you.

Is it possible that you have a longer than normal set screw in your pinion and its hitting somewhere?
