I was looking at the Citrix line but noticed that there are four of them and only one is listed as legal. Do the other Citrix ESC's have timing or turbo or something that makes them not qualify for the legal list? Or are they just not listed yet?

i believe they are upgradable..I know the crawler version i have is able to be connected to a PC instead of just the simple programming box

and there are versions that DO have turbo/boost the club spec is the one you want - its the version that's on the ROAR sportsman speedo list

Ah. OK. I wish tekin would make one that was specific for VTA that was about the size of the FX. That would be spot on.

So VTA will be 1st-10th in the Amain....thanks to the great sponsors and donations that make this possible...

also I was asked why this event is so big right now...well here are some of the rundown....

First let me say that you have my promise you don't want to miss it. I've gone through all the hoops and fire to make this event as big as possible. For me to do this is straight cause I love my hobby and VTA...period...but you also get

Free pizza from Dominos

Free sodas form Nashrcracer

Sleep Inn rooms with breakfast and double queen bed for $49 a nite and only 5-8 minutes from track.

A lot of top VTA USGT and TC talent that normally would not get a chance to race each other cause of the distance. But at this race you will see the best form the North,South,East, and some West, go head to head for the right to be called NATIONAL CHAMPION!!!

More prizes and trophies than the law should allow, from Novak,Boca,HPI,KRC,Hobby Lobby,Car Quest,RTS,Rockstar Paints and more

A chance to be part of one of the largest onroad races of the year.

New layout, that will give no one the home track advantage

Only 3 classes, which allows for more ppl in each class for more prestige wins and placement.

Gives the locals who have never been to a big event a chance to do so, as well as out of town guys whom have never as well

Photo and video of the event

Cool event shirts, that are only $20

Entry thats ONLY $30 for first class, and only $15 for second

And most of all....FUN FUN FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And many many more....so dont miss out...Im doing everything possible to make sure you all enjoy this event and come back for more next year, Ill be working on that soon..lol..no I really am....

cya soon, and thanks for the support
And it keeps getting better. Both my club and a great hobby shop are donating towards the effort. Myron...you got an e-mail !!!

At Mikes Hobbies we had our largest VTA turnout to date with 12 entries. We ve got about 20-30 guys running VTA now, but we cant seem to all be at the track at the same time. With cooler weather coming, Im sure we will see attendance records come and go almost weekly. We have a 2 week break because of a big offroad shindig at the track soon.

My spare from Amain arrived and that was definitely the problem. Ran it on the closest tennis court without any issues. I'm still waiting on the replacement from Novak, but not surprised since I knew it would take a while to get here.

New (used) TC5, fresh body (I stink at painting). We had our first hard rain in a while, so I'll have to see when the local track dries out to get it on the pavement for the first time. The 40c 5000 Gens Ace lipo should last about a full day of racing with this 25.5

Has anyone tried a Novak Edge? If so please post your results. I'm looking at the SP Cirtix, the HW Justock and the Novak Edge to update some of my cars. So far the the Cirtix/Justock seem to be the way to go.
