T-minus 7 days until the 2018 USVTA Summer Slam! A few quick updates:

First, we will have a limited number of event t-shirts available in limited sizes for purchase. They will be $15 by PayPal and you'll get them at the race. We'll post a picture as soon as we have the graphics back from our vendor.

Second, we will be performing random motor tech and inspections during the qualifiers and mains. A resistance meter will be available at practice on Friday for everyone to use to make sure their motor is compliant in advance. A list of ROAR's minimum resistance values will be available at the track as a reference.

Third, if you haven't signed up yet, head on over to RCSignUp to get in on the action.

Test runs were done this weekend with a club race. Lap times were really fast.
Time to tweak the layout . Fix a bad visibility corner that was causing crashes and fix the chicane to eliminate the cheater lap. LOL
