I looked back a few pages but have not seen anything stating what tires will be for 17.5 touring car. Did I miss it or are we still waiting for Vegas?

You do have a rather unique car there. I would say start with a 17.5 setup take 2 lbs off the springs 5 weight out of the oil and 1/2 degree out of the toe and it should be good. That's usually where I start. I doubt there are but a handfull of that model in the states to start with ips and most are being run to TCS rules not usgt. But I could be wrong.

Seems like the prevailing answer would be 571 front/572 rear. That seems to be the default starting point for carpet.

The 2014 U.S.VTA+ Southern Nationals in Music City U.S.A. would like to welcome back the PROTOform family incl Dale and Eric Epps to this event. The PROTOform company has been a big supporter for the U.S.VTA organization and classes for the last couple of years with new bodies being produced particular for the U.S.VTA including the 1971 Pontiac Firebird that made its debut at last years event.

Thank you

Myron Kinnard

I have not ran that car @thunder yet but I would look at the gt2 or 3 whatever is the 21.5 class is at the tcs classes and add reinforced chassis...and some offset Tamiya wheels obviously swaybars .....

If I'm here for it I might run the evo 6 or the tb04 proII
