There was just a Tamiya race, so I think he still has some motors.

and i didn't hear about many being DQ'ed, so hopefully he still has a big supply

will there be registration on race day or does it all have to be pre-registered?

Unless Eric got another order in already all silver can motors were sold out over the weekend. I am sure he will get some more in as he regularly stocks those motors.

This belt is not to be confused for the yearly title handed out to the winner. This title can be contested weekly, at any track, at any location.

That is all.
To bad for Brad, I'm coming for that belt. And bringing it back to the south where it belongs

IF YOU SMELLLLLLL WHAT THE BATT, IF BURNING!!!

Am I the only guy running an 10 year old chassis in VTA?

According to my records, I bought my VTA chassis on 4/27/2001.

I Purchased one of the first 414M's direct from Tamiya. The M2 came a few years later......

Maybe I should dust off my 414X.... (1999)

Last year I ran a '99 TC3, you just can't balance the thing unless you turn it into swiss cheese, and add a bunch of wieght (opposite side).

I'm running a second hand TC3 too.

Doesn't have to be the latest and greatest to run this class.

Yoke SD-SSG. When was that made? M not sure but it was a while back. I would buy an LCG if I could find one at a deal, but the owners just fall in love and never let go.

Still got a XXX-S here. 10 years old but still a great one, especially for VTA.

There are 2 guys here with the XXX-S's and they cannot get a setup to work properly. I'm running a FTTC4 and I have way more steering and overall traction.
