I would be tempted to run VTA in 21.5 too but I wasn't paying attention tonight while working on the F1 and just blew the speed control sky high, so I now need to steal the one out of the VTA car to run Friday

I should have replacements in time for the titles so I don't have to drop VTA....

Oops..., mine will only have a 540 fitted for friday as I need to purchase another motor, but should still be enough to sort out a setup.

Will be there this week for a bit of practise & a laugh, Martin to race my car, but after Friday I won't be back for a while,

An unfavourable medical result last week puts me out, (have to do as I'm told, a challenge in it's self!),

Wishing everyone the best for the upcoming Indoors race, hope to come & watch at least...

Sorry to hear that Jim, just as you were getting your eye in with your racing, and having fun doing it too.
Lets hope the next report is a more favorable one for you, and let you return to racing.

Cheers
Rob.

Sorry to hear the news Jim. I'm sure the docs can fix whatever the problem is. Humour them and do as they ask for a while and they will have you back on your feet in no time. Take care mate and I hope to see you soon.

Looks like this Friday could be a big one, The boys from Maitland and Newcastle will be back down this Friday and Rod M has said there are a few extras from the Sydney area turning up as well.

No VTA for me this week, sorry as I'm saving my tires for the August event & I promised "Red Is Faster" last week that I would race my Mercedes shell with him in 21.5

Cheers

WooHoo.... Just loaded more lights on my Body hehehe.... imagine a full gird with lights?...uhmm.... **Christmas**. i brought my extra body for 21.5, if you want to race VTA.... we'll save the lights for another day.. =)

i just bought some hpi tires...dam they are not cheap... im looking for a VTA body now.... is 1977 Japanese Body ok by the rules? or is it pushing it a little?

Body Specifications: Late '60s to early '70s American, Australian, Japanese, pony car Vintage Trans-Am bodies only.

or a 1968 GTR will be better.

Yeh a 1977 body may be considered to be too new, the 1968 one would be fine, & you still have to use the VTA rims and tires though.

The vta tires may be a bit more expensive, but you do get a good amount of racing from them before you need to replace them. (some say they work better when bald).

Cheers
Rob.
