Just a heads up but I saw in a thread about the site, that the problem getting to this thread and some of others is a site problem that will be fixed once they update. They weren't sure when that will be but its been addressed. Just thought id let you guys know that have posted about the problem here.

I don't know the answer to that, but I'll find out. I created and run the website for RCAR. http://www.rcarindy.com So, as soon as I know, I'll post it! Kevin Cole always puts on a first class event. His family is great too. What nice people!

Hopefully this class is starting to gain some momentum on the west coast. I drove this VTA spec legal car yesterday for about ten laps:



It was so fun I ran home and ordered the parts to convert my fresh but untouched since 2004 XXX-S to run with these guys.

Anybody got an extra Trinity spur gear adaptor for the XXX-S lying around they want to part with?

Looking forward to Battlefield on Oct 29!
I have heard it called Bo Duke-ing it when you hit the corner dots and get it up on two wheels, but now I think maybe this maneuver deserves the title.

Does anybody have a good set-up sheet that I can use to build up my Xray T3 2010 for VTA Racing?

Nice car. One of the guys that I race with I believe has a XXX-S. Still holds it's own against modern chassis, so you should do fine in VTA with it.

They are out there. The only unobtanium part appears to be the Trinity spur gear adapter, heck, all the spurs are getting hard to find. I hope 4:1 FDR is enough outdoor, because that's all can get with an 86 tooth spur.

That Camaro is a xray (I think) and isn't mine. I'm going to run an AMC body.
