Are the stock black orings the better option, then?

Where can I order this? I suck at finding retailers for these companies.

3.5-3.7 plus timing 1.5mm to 2mm past the last timing mark on the motor. IMHO

Here we run USVTA with full rules, the novaks run best around 3.5 on our medium sized outdoor track.

With a 21.5 in a sedan or gt class, I'd start around 3.2 on 24mm slicks. The VTA tires are bigger, so you are probably real close.

My EVO will be hitting the carpet tomorrow night for the first time in VTA setup. I'm starting around 3.6 to see how that goes. We run our Novak motors on the edge of melting (fierce competition!), so I'll see how that goes. I'm hoping it'll cool off better, hanging off of the chassis that much.

I gear my car 51/80 for vta. The motor comes of at 120* or so on a track that's a like 85 x 36.

I built my car following the tips CraigMBA laid out ( shimming, tapping the gearboxes) and it's fine. It's a great VTA car, and feels super solid on the track.

Are you running the kit setup? If not, any tips on setup for VTA tires?
