RWD cars are not allowed in USGT. However if you're just starting out, and that's the only car you have, please come race with us anyway. We're flexible with the rules for new racers, so that they'll have time to get the proper equipment.

USGT Rules: http://www.usvintagetransam.com/rule...s7-20-2017.pdf

Chassis Specification:

O no it not that i am a new racer it that my local drift track got flooded due to irma and since now i dont have a place to use my drift chassis i thought hmm maybe i can add some touring tire and race them. I always wonder how competitive a rwd rc car would be. When it comes to racing i normally do fwd touring and rwd buggy. I used to do some 4wd touring but got bored from it.

Great day of racing. We had a good turn-out, considering the high threat of rain kept many racers away. We had a couple brief rain delays, but the track dried quickly and we managed to complete the race program. Thanks to everyone that helped dry and maintain the track. Thanks to Pak and Andre for running the computer during the Mod Races. Thanks to Maclan Racing for their support.

RESULTS: Village Raceway :: Club Race :: LiveRC

Our next club race is 11/5/2017. We'll be hosting the FSEARA - Florida State Electric Auto Racing Association Race on November 18th (Practice) and 19th (Race Day).

FSEARA Classes:

17.5 TC
Mod TC
Formula1
WGTR
Promoter's Class: USGT
USGT Rules: U.S. Vintage Trans-Am R/C Racing Series

Start getting your cars ready. November should be a great month of racing.

I want to express my gratitude to Dave, Johnny, and JT for all of the help that I received. I had one of those days where everything seemed to go wrong. These ambassoradors stepped up to the plate, as always, and helped me out. Hence, my day was a lot more fun.....

Two new state of the art roll dries will be on the way shortly..... Rain delays will be minimized....

I usually bring MTS parts should anyone need spares.

I marked my calendar for the upcoming dates.
