This race is setup for drivers to help each other out and have a race in a race concept. This will work the same way in VTA and 1 driver will go home as the Duel Champion in VTA and 1 for TC.

I'll give you a hand Fuzz. Hit me up with any questions you have and we'll get it figured out. The setup changes from the E-mergent track to Onelug aren't much if any.

I know you were thinking of VTA, but I also know you have a 1/12 laying around too. Time to fire up both of them.

You disapointed me Fuzz! Did you even open the box?

Just get that VTA ready for some carpet. Which car are you going to use? You have a few to choose from.

Personally I would use whatever car you can get a front diff or spool in. The track is tight and you need brakes. I tried using a oneway and hated it.

I'm in for something...TC and dunno what else. Brent said I should be in Sportsman but I think he is just afraid of being bit by the Serpent!
