Great day of racing on Sunday. There were heats of VTA (x2), USGT, 1/12th scale and F1. Had a few fimilar racers from last season make it to the track which was nice to see. F1 looked likes to make a resurgance with several new racers taking turns with Ted's spare fleet of cars. There was a new layout which was a fun change of pace and by qual 3, most everyone had it down.

Hope to see everyone at the track next Sunday - Jan 15th.

Erik

Another great day of racing on Sunday. There were heats of VTA (x2), USGT, 1/12th scale and F1. Had a few familiar racers from last season make it to the track which was nice to see. F1 looked likes to make a resurgence with several new racers taking turns with Ted's spare fleet of cars.

Hope to see everyone at the track next Sunday - Jan 22nd.

I have a TC6.1 on the way. I hope to make it for a race by the 29th if all my parts get here on time.

Nice. Do you know what class you plan to race (VTA, USGT, other)?

WGTR are currently running with the F1 until enough show up to make a class. The speeds are not that dissimilar.

I was planning on VTA, but the car came with USGT tires, body and 21.5 motor. So it's USGT, hopefully I can keep up with the field.

Pretty sure you will keep up. Just takes some practice and getting used to the carpet - the new black carpet has lots of grip

Hope to see you there.

3 weeks of racing USGT and I am having a blast. Started out 8 laps behind the leader and now I am about 4 laps behind the leader, keeping up with the slower regulars. I still have a lot of work to do, but I am happy with my progress (thanks for the help Dave). I am having so much fun I bought another chassis for VTA (where I should have started). Hopefully I can get it ready for next Sunday. Only running one class makes for a long day.

Welcome! Glad you are having fun!

I only run 1 class, F1, but I make sure my car is setup and perfect for every heat. There is always something to adjust to make it faster or easier to drive. Re-measure stuff or gear up/down to get the ultimate fast laps.
