Well here is a little more information about "THE" USVTA Scale Nationals...we will be offering Trans AM, USGT, F1 and 17.5 Stock sedan. All Classes will be $30 per entry. We will be doing hand out motors for the USGT class this year. We have chosen the JUSTOCK 3650SD G2 21.5 Motor. https://www.hobbywingdirect.com/prod...nt=27383102024

You will need to purchase a motor from the track for $40 dollars. You will only be allowed 1 motor and we will have a suggested gear ratio range to use. Spare motors will not be available to purchase they will only be made available in the case of a catastrophic failure and you over gearing the motor is not a catastrophic failure. We will limit USGT to 55 Total entries.


Race Tires for USGT and 17.5(JACO) will need to be purchased at the track and tires for Trans AM and F1 will be BYO but must be CRC or TCS tires with stock inserts for F1 and HPI tires for Trans AM.

Race format will be Reedy race style format for all USVTA classes and they will be 8 minutes long.....with PIT STOPS!!! The schedule will be open practice on Friday April 7th, 3 rounds of Reedy Style racing on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th for 6 total round your best 4 rounds count towards the overall.

Entries will go Live next week February 15th....entry form to follow.
