Default Input wanted

Any interested On-Road guys please chime in.

Is Thursday better for racing over Wed?

Classes:

VTA, MO5 Mini, 17.5, Legends, and Open Class. Novice would be good too.

I would be interested in coming out, but not driving two hours in the middle of the week to race.

Completely understand. I live 7min from the track and have the lap counting system with me. If you have some friends up there that want to come down and race, I'd be happy to support you guys. Give me a weeks notice, and I can make that happen pretty easily on a Sunday afternoon.

We are all about promoting the hobby and just want to give folks a place to run.

Hit me up on here, or via PM to coordinate.

That would be awesome.

I have 4 guys that would ride down with me if you would do that. this weekend i'll talk to them and see if we can work something out.

EDIT: We all run 8.5 and 10.5T TC so I guess we would just race in the RwUB class.

During the winter you guys will have to come and race with us!

Sounds great- love to travel to check out other tracks!

Our track is tight but flows well- perfect for VTA and mini, but 17.5 looks really good too. You speed demons will have to judge for yourselves.

I've run nitro on it and didn't mind it too much, but bring whatever you want. If you have at least 3 with you we can run an open TC class. You guys figure out what motor you want.

That would be great. I think the track will be fine, we were running these motors on the indoor carpet track at HT and it was mucho smaller than the one you guys have. That is a nice track. Hope to make it out very soon!

www.usvintagetransam.com/rules/

I've been getting some very good interest from guys wanting to put cars together. Biggest interest I've seen has been on MO5 and VTA.

Visit link above for VTA Rules.

As far as MO5 Goes:

not to exceed 3600NiMH batteries
Kit ESC, Kit Silver Can Motor
Tamiya Mini Tires only

Only upgrades allowed are ball bearings and non-performance enhancing. I.e. steering rack, hub carriers etc. NO BALL DIFFS.

If you have questions Please ASK
