The HPI Camaro and Cuda will work, the Mustangs will be maybe...

I think the Parma bodies are all significantly wider.

woodys3b - Thanks, that helps.

DARKSIDE - Thanks. I know the Camaro and Cuda bodies are 210mm in the rear. I have one of the HPI Mustangs and it appears to be tight. I'll double check it.

Timbulb - Thanks. I agree. They appear to be wider. I emailed Parma and asked for the measurements on the Boss Mustang, but I haven't go anything back yet.

I have a Parma Boss Mustang on my VTA car. I can physically measure the rear width for you when I get home. I do think there is a bit of room left over in the wheel wells in both the front and rear with my TC3 chassis. Better yet, if you are going to the STCHTUSA pizza party tomorrow, I can bring it along for you to check on your car.

The Pegasus Camaro and Cuda are wide. The Cuda is huge.

The HPI Cuda is actually a TANK body...even thought it was listed 210mm, it still way too WIDE for any TC.

The Pegasus Mustang...not the best looking, but it feel the best....otherwise, HPI camero, looks and performs pretty good.

beemerfan - Thanks, I'll try to remember to bring it to the party.

robk - Thanks for the information. I've seen pictures of the Camaro painted, but not the Cuda.

Solara - Thanks. The JL10E is a 200 mm chassis and with the vintage tires it's too wide for my HPI Mustang body, but the Mustang body fit my Cyclone and Cyclone "S."

robk - Thanks, that helps. I've wondered about these bodies. They are cheap, but I don't know anyone that's run one. Are they durable?

They are about the same as everything else beside the Pegasus Mustang and Camaro, which seem to last the longest.

trust me I would rather have it national rules. but I think we only have 1 25.5 in the region right now. working on a deal to trade out a bunch of motors but till that happens and people pick up on the difference they'll be pockets of 21.5 racers running around. I still had people running 27t motors this summer. they weren't fast with them it's just all they had and were lucky to have the entry fee let alone money to upgrade even as cheap as novak has made it.

I talked to Rob and the desision to go to 25.5 was the right one for the class. so know I got to lead all my horses to the water it's just going to take a little more to fret it out.
After a day of racing, I have just a little more to add. We didn't have any 21.5s running today. My 25.5 was geared at 3.77 FDR and I could have gone up a few teeth on the pinion. Temps were not an issue. We had a guy running a 27t brushed and it was way fast at 7.0 FDR Next week I'll be geared a little higher and he'll be geared a little lower so we'll see what happens. I can tell you this. It looks like it would be easier to match the 21.5 to the 25.5 than it is to match the 27t to it. I'm not sure well get there.

However, my 25.5 prevailed at the end of the day. I sure do like this combo for VTA. Lots of fun!

Default Tamiya TT-01

Yesterday was our first day of racing for the season. We have a new Tamiya TT-01 class using silver can motors and we allow you to change the shocks to real oil filled shocks. I race in this and VTA. After a day of racing, I was surprized that the TT-01s are only about 2 tenths a lap off the pace of the VTA cars. I know it's easy to over power a TT-01 but with the new 25.5, this looks like it might be a viable chassis for VTA. I've got to tell you that the TT-01 is way better than it has a right to be. Has anyone here given it a try with a 25.5?
