Default The true definiton of FREEDOM OF SPEECH

Freedom of speech is the freedom to speak freely without censorship or limitation, or both. The synonymous term freedom of expression is sometimes used to indicate not only freedom of verbal speech but any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used. In practice, the right to freedom of speech is not absolute in any country and the right is commonly subject to limitations, such as on "hate speech".

Yes, people are free to come to this forum and criticize the choices made by those who make the rules.

We are free to tell you to be quiet and go somewhere else.

What's humorous is the reaction of people who don't like to be told 'No, these are the rules. You have X number of OTHER onroad classes where you can participate. Stop complaining.'

2 things:
Novak made the 25.5, and it was adopted due to their record of excellent customer service, their willingness to allow "upgrade" or "trade -in" exchanges on motors, and the fact that they don't introduce new motors every 6 months and get rid of the current line. This class needs stability. The reason no other motors are allowed is the motor-of-the-week syndrome. As soon as someone starts winning with another motor, everyone feels they must buy that motor, warranted or not. That is not what Trans Am is about.

The other thing is that a huge amount of people cannot stand being told what to do vis-a-vis rules. Unfortunately, we need rules otherwise this will be yet another out of control class. I am sorry if this is offensive to you, but there have to be limits.

complaining about VTA rules is a hate crime. I hate it.

again I'll reiterate VTA is a slow class that you might get bashed wither unintentional or out of the drivers wanting something that is not so serious as TC. Plus understand IF you want to be serious about a class and RACE please step up to TC. If you don't like getting punted sometime several times in one lap stay out of VTA. I tell the same thing to the slash stock guys and when I ran it I got bashed by less experienced drivers and accepted it. I want you guys to have fun in the class but you can't go off complaining if someone less experienced takes you out. now if batboy does it to you peel him I do, but I won't do it in touring car there is a difference.

ALSO from the VTA site

http://usvintagetransam.com/

Welcome to the home for the newly created Vintage T/A 1/10th scale R/C road racing class, based on 4wd touring cars. The class rules are developed to provide close racing with controlled chassis, battery, motor, tire and body specifications. The goal of the VTA class is to bring back awesome looking cars in a cost controlled racing format where the result is just plain fun. The speed of the specification package brings close and competitive racing for sportsman, intermediate and experienced hobbyist that rewards driver development.

With a decline in all R/C racing in recent years, racing needs a big shot of fun and excitement--and this is the perfect class. Far more reasonable speeds, low costs, realistic and exciting looking bodies, wheels and tires, less traction and wheel-to-wheel action drive this class. It IS the next big thing. It's appealing not only to spectators, but to new and old racers, alike. For a low initial cost, any prospective Trans-Am racer can get a car, a radio and be racing with very little time or effort. And the fact is that racers who have never raced before can be on the same level playing field as everyone else, and really enjoy doing so.

Can't wait to start racing VTA again. The new MI1 should make a great platform. VTA is relaxing AND thrilling at the same time since the racing is usually pretty close. Never had so much fun or frustration actually being able to SEE the changes in performance when you dial in the chassis.
Long live VTA !!

Yes but it comes down to Rob King rules. If you run the true rules you should follow them. but then again your track my vary. personally if you can get everybody running the true rules I think it's a better deal and has less headaches for the tracks race director. and in my case that would be me!
