[QUOTE=ApexSpeed;431303 21.5 brushless/lipo option for next season.[/QUOTE]

Sounds good to me! Lipo is the future. We may as well get it rolling.

The Minnesota State On Road Champs Race at The World of Wheels Car Show spotlighted a Trans Am Series race quite sucessfully.

We stuck to the rules with the following adjustments: 8 min quals; We ended up running out of time at the convention center so the main was shortened to 7 minutes midway thru the run; In addition, we ran the race in the normal direction; All other vehicle rules were adhered to with just a few quals tossed out due to a wrong motor and two driver substitutions.

Conner Pfromm ran away with TQ on his 4th qualifier and then he took the win running his 4th place A-Main stock sedan. He used his stock sedan foam setup, changed tires, battery and body and 'spanked' the competition. He must have a great pit man (me)!!

Allan Pfromm, 2nd, was just under 7 seconds behind Conner's rear bumper, reeling him in. If the race would have gone the whole 8 minutes the win would have been mine since Conner's turnbuckle popped off as he crossed the line for the win at 7 minutes.

Jeff Brustad, 3rd, entered late having just one qual and then the main. He was fast, but I think he had to contend with traffic.

Mike Scott, 4th, held his own, but ran into issues on lap 14 posting a 45 second lap and then a few 27 second circuits.

Dave Hallis, 5th, ran well throughout the quals just seconds behind Allan's qualifying pace in the first few rounds. Instead of chasing the competition, he was chasing his setup all weekend.

Joey Cobb, 6th, shifted from Novice into the Trans Am class after a little coaxing from the other T/A drivers and then after approval from his uncle, Homer Lee.

Gary Pauna, 7th, had issues with traction. He certainly put on a great show for the spectators who thought he was a drifter entered in the wrong race!! He pulled off the track 3:44 minutes into the race.

Even though the turnout was light for the T/A race, interest was high and given the chance to run at the club level, this could take off into a permanent class next season for the Sunday races at LSRCC.

Pics to come, RCTech not allowing upload right now...

Ideally, we'll have the class set up as (pick one) 27t brushed stock, 17.5 brushless stock, or 21.5 brushless/lipo option for next season.

We've been experimenting with the 21.5/lipo combo. It's awesome and where everyone needs to be. I plan to run that next year.

I hope he can drive without any crashes. It would be a shame to wreck such a good job.

I really look forward to this addendum for those of us who want to run lipo and brushless.

We've been racing TA class indoor on industrial concrete treated with VHT for months now. We race here:

http://www.undergroundrcracetrack.com

Our best racers have been running TA05's and Losi XXX-s, and have been running for months now once a week. We run 27T and four cells.

Two of our better racers did a test today and switched to stock Tamiya TT01's using their usual 4 cells. The results were surprising:

A TT01 finished first in almost all of qualifiers today.

I wanted to let people know that a $120.00 US kit or an under $200.00 US RTR vehicle can be competitive in Trans AM class. I think this would be good news for any tracks looking to have newbie racers join their racing program and not have to spend tons of money to try and be competitive.

I'd even suggest that anyone new to racing and buying a TT01 just leave the silver can motor in.

I'm glad to see some place are still considering Brushed motors

I'm hoping we get something regular over here in the Phila/South Jersey area - I'm pushing for 27t or 19t and 4cells
