Good thing you aren't running on a old Windows computer or all those fonts would have used up your available memory. (I'm an IT nerd )

I'll try and get you an order over the weekend that will include #'s 67 in the that font with the bolder type.
Thanks again,

I have a set of VTA tires i bought for the first USVTA nats. I ran them at the second one and took a few years off. They've been stored in the closet but not in a plastic bag. They have plenty of tread left but feel a bit dry. Should I pick up a fresh set for this year's nats?

Just get some traction compound in them and run them a few times. Older tires typically are a bit better.

As far as what was written into the rules and talked about its any ROAR approved 2cell lipo for USGT.....VTA has the 5000mah Cap. Not that you really need anything more then a 3800 really....but its there if you want it.

Cool

Our Local race track [OVRCCC] has adjusted our VTA requirments to allow the racers an easier way to keep racing
Saturday we had 9 VTA racers and we ran the ALL in the Main

Currently we allow 21.5, and the VTA required Speedo's
NO gear ratio limit,

We are discussing the possibly of allowing ROAR "TC SPEC" speedos
our racers feel they are very limited in Speedos so they are in favor of allowing more speedos in VTA as long as they meet the 'Blinky mode'

Now let the beatings begin!!

You are the devil and will burn in hell !! Is that beating enough !!??
It's still basically VTA and I'm assuming none of your racers plan on being part of a VTA sanctioned race nor is the club planning on promoting a sanctioned event.
I am curious though. "To allow the racers an easier way to keep racing"...What does that mean ?? I'm guessing EVERYBODY already has 21.5 motors?? Just a reminder and something you may not have thought about. As the speed increases, certain costs due to wear will increase exponentially. Tires in particular will wear out much faster and therefore each racer will spend more in the long run.
