Hopefully Rob K can clarify, and I can understand the confusion (to a point) but understand that there is very definitely a difference between Havoc Pro and Havoc Pro SC.
yeah the Discontinued Havoc Pro is on the legal list. Its what Im running. IT came in a Novak VTA combo and I double checked it on the list when i got it

yeah...thats why I posted that...the Havok Pro SC has timming...and IS NOT allowed in VTA, nor will it make the list....I posted that so nobody would take that as being a "legal" esc for VTA....

Ah--roger that. Looked like it was an indication that it should be there, looks like we BOTH know it should not.

All is well in VTA-land.

After a couple "low" years as the spec shifted about (we adopted BL / LiPo a year late) it's looking like we have a resurgence of interest in VTA locally for our on-road season that starts up in October. We've just started an electric off-road program this summer after a 10+ year absence of same and a few of the new racers have said they plan to run VTA. Whoopie!!

So the original Havoc Pro isn't illegal, and the Havoc Pro SC isn't not illegal for VTA? Glad I got that straight!

And yes, read as you've written it, by George I think you've got it. And cleverly put as well.

Ive been cheerleading alot of VTA in my region... Knoxvill,ATL,Chattanooga/N.GA all have started up VTA under USVTA rules.. and seem to really like the whole new rules and have brought VTA back in a big way...

I apologize----I created this confusion by linking the wrong RMF store page.

We replaced the orig HP (VTA-legal) with the new HP SC (not VTA legal). But, there are still many orig HPs being raced and customers purchase used.

Im curious as to why the LRP TC Spec Version 1 is no longer legal? When the 21.5 was being used it was legal and then the second the USVTA group changed to the 25.5 this esc became illegal. WHY IS THIS? This esc has no timing advance or boost.

TC spec has dynamic timing, Comp 07 has dynamic timing. As far as I know the only one that did not have dynamic timing was the original Sphere, but that was never confirmed.
