not sure about the Mini or F1 classes this year....

Hey Rob its a month away...how about some info please...
Hmmm..... I called the track and they told me it was RCGT with 17.5. I guess they are in the dark with the rest of us. I'm real happy to learn it's actually USGT rules. I may have to run two classes now.

Many tracks use RCGT general rules of 17.5, but those cars are as fast as Stock Rubber, and with no difference other than the body lately, it seems relatively redundant.

The Scale Nationals (USGT) will be using 21.5 motors, and personally I think it's a really good idea for a National class. But then again, I still hope for racing as slow as 4-cell 1/12th scale carpet cars from 1988.

Thanks
i have been running a tc4 for about 2years & im in the top 3with it most of the time

my set up i run is
blue springs 40wt oil
silver springs 30wt oil
spool in the front
ntc3 cvd's...for two reasons..the spool will brake the plastic ones & the blue aluminum......the shaft part is thinner & it will reduce the chatter & bindind up then the other cvd's
i have a low roll center...to reduce traction roll
5.5mm ride height & 2 or 3mm over right height
4* caster blocks
1* camber in the front
2* camber in the rear
front shocks layed in next to the last hold
rear shocks standing up


if this dont work for you..i did find that the box stock set up works pretty good
hope this helps!!

Generally, most of the proven Stock Rubber setups are working well in VTA, with very few exceptions that I know of. Many people start with the kit/manual suggested setups, as well. If you can find a good carpet rubber setup for your car, you'll be right in the ballpark.

I was talking about possibly 4600-5000 NIHM's being legal ... I can't afford to make the jump to lipo and all it's needs at the moment.

Not likely Lynn. VTA used to allow 4 cell nimh use but times they are a changing. Then again, as has been mentioned, your LOCAL rules can be different. If you choose to allow 6cell nimh that's fine. No worries unless you try to attend or promote your own VTA sanctioned event. Then everything has to be by national rules.

BTW, the other part of the rules you could play around with 'locally" is the ROAR requirement for batteries. I use Zippy Flightmax hard case 4000mah lipo's and you can buy them for around 25 bucks a piece.

But the one on the pace car door looks bigger then the one on the #4's quarter though. Unless it is just perspective, it looks twice as big.

I designed the logo and did the original decal sheet, that was to be printed in red, white and blue on a clear backing. It wound up being red and white on a white backing with a die cut. The truth is, they can be a lot better. Carl does great work, and I have no doubt that his decals will be fantastic.

The original layout was this:



The large was 3.4" x 1.8", the medium size was 2.4" x 1.3" and the small shields were 1.2" x .625" give or take.
