I might regret this and my fellow locals might not be happy with me but our local track has a e-store and I know they have some in stock.

Im geared at 3.5-4.0, depending on track and layout....normally mt motor time is in the stock position....adding more time will increase heat and give you more straight speed, less motor time will increase punch/infield/rip....

also Ive talked to Collin at HPI, and he is aware of the tires...and more are on the way..ASAP!!..thanks CC

I dont know where you are but my track has a grace period on this car. We allow you to run it for three races before you have to be fully legal. We do make you gear down so that you are not pulling the field down the straight.

More grace time is negotiable but has to be approved by the other racers.

Socko Baby!

I guess Darkside should say BACK at the Snowbirds. It was dropped because of lack of interest. VTA is two years stronger now and I hope that we can get enough interest to keep it on the roster for coming years.

To any of my fellow VTA racers coming down to Florida for the Snowbird's. Due to just buying a house and having taken a huge hit in pay after being unemployed for a year, I probably won't be able to attend but I'll be glad to help in any way I can if somebody needs it. I'm an hour or so east of Orlando so if you run into some problems with getting stuff to the Birds or whatever, please feel free to get in touch. I will be there on any day I need to and I'll drfinitely be there for the Saturday and Sunday races. One way or the other I'll show my support for my favorite class.

Questions??

Can somebody tell me where the closest on-road track is to Jacksonville, FL? And, secondly, do they race VTA at the track?
