Yea another one would be great. the prize money was great and really helped make the weekend afordable for me being a full time student, but even if we were just going for braggin rights it would have been just as much fun and I would have found a way to make it.

Haven't posted in the thread for awhile but just curious if/when we could expect some rules updates. Thinking mostly if there will be more motors approved for this upcoming '09/10 season.

We are currently winding some 25.5 Ballistic motor stators. We will add them to the Ballistic motor accessories in our store in the next week to 10 days.

Hey all you Silvercan VTA racers out there. It has been recommended to me to gear at 5.2 FDR for a large flowing track. Would you concur? Gear up? or Gear down?

Thanks.

Cpt.

Default Music City Championship 2009

my math may be off a little check the results for more info..lap 5 Justin..lol

but if you really think my "CROWN" is to tight...there is a place to fix it..or better yet remove me from the throne...and here it is...

MUSIC CITY CHAMPIONSHIP 2009(MCC 09')

I would like to welcome ALL TRANS-AM RACERS to one of the, if not the largest TA races in the country. We plan on setting a new bar for outdoor TA racing on asphalt. This year we hope to surpass last years event in every way.

The MCC 09' is our premier on-road race of the year. It sets the tone for the indoor season and ULTIMATE bragging rights as well as some of the best trophies around. Ive been told that believe it or not some guys who dont care about trophies, would love to have one of these.....Dirla will testify to that.

But its not all about trophies. We have FREE food for the racers and any racers travelling gets discounted, some even FREE...free food and racing, nice day of fun. We will also have the best competition anywhere looking to claim top prize.

Also instead of only one champion, our race is designed to all divisions of skill level. There will be 28 awards presented at the MCC. 1st-3rd in Expert TA, Sportsman TA and TC. 1st-5th in Jr. TA. 1st-3rd for points series champions (TA, TC & JR). Best adult paint and best junior paint jobs. And 3 special awards including Driver-of-the-Year.

Our goal is to have the most entries possible and to put on the best event around. here is the general info


http://www.coolspringsracing.com/Mus...mpionship.html

Four classes:

1) Expert T/A (Straight USVTA rules, no speed limit or motor RPM limit)
2) Sportsman T/A (Local rules apply; max. speed and motor RPM limits)
3) Junior T/A (Local rules apply; max. speed and motor RPM limits)
4) Touring Car (17.5 motor and Jaco Blue rubber tires)

Three heats and a main in each class. Trophies for all classes.

Free food and drinks for all registered drivers.

SUNDAY, Sept. 27, 2009 (Rain Make-up Date = 10/4/09)

so come join in on the FUN,FAIR,CHEAP

PS...the 1st ten racers that pay their entry for VTA by the last points race(Sept 13) I will give a free prize to you...the prizes are body,# sheets,tires,rims...these are my gifts to you 1st ten....

PSS...before I get into anything new...5 out of 8 teams took home some money from the Cashville race..and a great time...this is my gift to the 3 teams that didnt..

The Music City Championship is Sept 27th.....I am willing to refund your teams entry fee and apply it to the MCC 09'....

so for TEAM...

Hobby Lobby...Robert,Bobby,Neil...$30 towards MCC 09'

a. Same level of performance and detail/realism as the current bodies
b. More realistic details even at the cost of performance
c. More performance at the cost of realistic details

Would Lexan light buckets be a welcome addition to the bodies?

Thanks,

Thank you to everyone that replied to the questions above. Your feedback is always very important to us and most certainly factor in our decisions in regards to the Vintage body production/design.

We currently have several bodies that are in the "works"

Thanks,

AndyH


*Future body questions/feedback will be posted in the Trans Am Paint & Pics thread

If you guys get a chance to race or put one of these enduros on...Do it!

Battman and Dirla did a great job thinkin it all out/planning! thanks to mark for the 3 hours of announcing & jrs/henslo for the techn...and all the rest. Great job.

I have some pics but need to resize them some...stay tuned.
Here's one pic not too big to post: concourse

Yes they were cut down to less than a 1/4 inch or so. They are shorter than the wing on my Cuda.

I am Honored sir. Everyone at the Cashville Enduro seemed to like it. It was only thirty something grams heavier than the current production shell. Painted and everything. It seemed much beefier in the nose which they all split there if you hit em enough times, but this one will hold up.

Yes they were. They were neutered pretty good. If you look again the black ones didnt have them and they didnt suffer too bad, without them.

I was just thinking that if you used a Novak Ballistic system you could swap the 21.5 and a 17.5 and use essentially the same car for VTA and RCGT. Except for that pesky wing.
