The only rules about numbers is that you should have them on your car.

They are/we're included in the initial production of the HPI Camaro/Mustang decals sheets. They have since been removed on any new sheets per Goodyear's request

Thanks,

The "Tracks" listing on the USVTA website has been updated with any track that has submitted a listing in the past couple of weeks. If you see your track not listed, and you're running a full USVTA program, be sure to fill out the online form.

We also have USVTA t-shirts still in stock and ready to ship. Check out the front page for pricing, sizes available and ordering information. If you are a hobby shop or track and would like to offer shirts for sale to your racers, contact me directly, as we have a special offer for tracks.


Keep up the great work at your local tracks, guys. This is grassroots racing at its very best, and the reason it is growing and thriving is the RACERS supporting it. Keep posting your cars and race photos here for everyone to see—it only creates more interest and support.

Prime Time Hobbies and Speedway... listed alphabetically under "P".

Soon I will have to re-arrange the Track list into STATE listings. The list is getting too big.

They are all up there... right click the page and select "reload frame" and you'll get a fresh page of Tracks. The site is tucked up into another site, so it may be a little tricky to navigate sometimes. Sorry 'bout that.

Here is a link on Tower Hobbies that shows a Parma decal sheet with 2Goodyear fender decals - http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXDA26&P=ML - it might come in handy to make a car look a little more race ready.

The other option is to use a paint pen to paint the HPI Racing raised letters on the tires. That works to some degree, but will get rubbed off during racing. Fairly easy to do though.

I have been reading this thread for awhile, and I am interested in the class though how that would go out here don't know.

Anyway, I have a few questions:

1. What about the novak 21.5 motor makes it the choice for the class instead of another brand?

2. What is the reasoning for limiting the capacity size of lipos to 5000mah which invalidates lipos like the checkpoint 5400 pack?

I think its great what you guys got going here and I hope that something like this could get started in our area.

Well, right now, the best answer to your questions is that there ARE NO OFFICIAL RULES yet for 21.5/LiPo so any answer at this point would be moot.
