I have to go check to make sure that this is still the VTA thread. Where have you seen multiple guages of Vintage shell? Aside from the beefed up HPI Cuda I think you get what you get.

As far as barely opaque paint jobs. I am all for banning them. That thing should be coated well. No light coming through except for the windows.

I have a VTA car that has ceramics in the driveline only. Its not that I put them there but I bought the car used and it was a competitive TC at the time. I tend to agree with Robk here but I guess it doesnt matter that much. If I were starting from scratch to build a VTA car though I would not bear the expense of ceramic bearings for an advantage that I dont even know if its measurable.

Free is fast, simple as that. Ceramics may not make that much of a difference but they certainly aren't a disadvantage either. For as long as I can remember in stock we've been blasting the heavy lube out of the bearing to re-oil them with a lighter oil to make them faster so we as racers must believe that this is an advantage otherwise it'd be way to tedious to piss with

I totally agree but we are talking about the class that you can pick your choice of the most aerodynamic brick you want and it will be just as fast as the others. Pick the out dated shaft driven touring car and win with it. Its ok! Go ahead and pass the $600 Yokomo or the $500+ X-ray or Tamiya. It happens all the time. This is VTA.

Your whole post could be used as a quote of the week.

Default Havoc 3S

The Novak Havoc 3S part number 1733 is approved for use in VTA. A three cell battery pack is not.

This setup is the #1734, and not on the approved list. Might be an oversight on Rob or Novak's part, as the #1734 is listed on Novak's VTA section as their legal Havoc VTA brushless ESC. Might just be a part number issue, too.

Something worth investigating, though.

I'm kinda confused; we do not list our Havoc 3S, either singly or in a combo, in the USVTA store section.

If used on 2S, our Havoc 3S has @ the same performance characteristics as our Havoc 2S, but is more expensive. It could have been approved by USVTA (for 2S use), but I do not think that it was.

Our P/N 1733 has been discontinued, and replaced with P/N 1734: Havoc 3S, which has Traxxas battery connector and bullet motor plugs installed for easier installation into Traxxas vehicles.
