Front one-ways are legal in this class based on the national rules. There are a couple of tracks running this class that have decided to not allow them for some reason. You should check with your local race track just to make sure.

I'm with ya on the Javelin body, too.

You Colorado boys better bring your TA cars up for Regionals. TA will be an exhibition class. LOTS o' fun and prizes!!

As far as one-ways...I know at SIR one-ways were becoming an excuse for drilling people in the rear entering corners for a couple folks ("Why'd you do that???!!!" "Sorry, man, can't hit the brakes...I got a one-way", etc), so the solution was to eliminate one-ways. Gets rid of the excuse for poor driving.

I think we have guys running front diffs, spools and one-ways here. I don't believe I've ever driven a TC with a front diff.

Ok so 2 1/12 scales, 1 Losi Slider and a TC4 TA. Heck on this pace, I'll need a full size van and a mechanic just to repair the damage!!!

Shoot, why not add a Mugen MTX Nitro car and a Darckside Enemy Oval car. This way I have almost every onroad class covered!!!

Well...nuthin fer those, but bring your Stock/17.5 Rubber Tire car to give us some lessons. THAT will be the class that's like shooting fish in a barrel...NONE of us race rubber (hell, I don't even race Taxi Cabs 'cept TA) and the guys coming from Seattle are either old, slow, or both.

Hell...UPS charges a "fuel surcharge" on anything they haul for you now, whether they were going there or not. I'd say fare's fair...

Ryan,
I'm running at Mimi's. I can't run at the "C" because I can't run on Sat. As far as the rules I know Mimi's is running fully by the National rules. I believe that the "C" is using them also, but you might want to check there thread or pm Casey (Mojoman) and ask him.

After much deliberating and taking feedback from many tracks and racers around the country, the 17.5 brushless motor final drive ratio limit of 4.00 has been officially removed from the USVTA rules. This includes the Nationals in April. It will allow brushless racers to be able to adapt to different sized tracks without feeling like they have no chance to keep up with well-tuned brushed motors.

We feel that this not only brings the brushless racers up to the same speeds achieved by brushed motors, but will make it easier for track owners and mangers to have to police. We are also following ROAR's lead and limiting the brushless rotors to 12.5mm maximum. The 13mm "tuning" rotors are easily identified by the groove on the rotor shaft.



For the record, the motor options for racers are 27T brushed motors with bushings ONLY or 17.5 brushless motors with 12.5mm rotor maximum diameter and unlimited timing. This should keep the playing field as level as possible for now, and keep racing in Trans Am highly competitive.

Not at all. The stock Novak rotor is 12.3mm. The Novak "tuning" rotor is 13mm and not legal.
