I got stuck on the track for 28 minutes in one of our enduro races when my teammates broke in rotation which didn't allow me to pit. And that was with 4000 20c SMC with 21.5 boosted spx.

I recharge it and continued to use it all day. And months to follow

+1. I've been looking for a Pontiac Firebird ever since I started in Vintage TRANS AM racing. So far the only closest body I could find is made by a company in Montana called RC Car Kings. The make a "Smokey and Bandit" Firebird. I purchased one of these in December and I am getting it professionally painted white with a red/orange/yellow firebird on the hood. I will post pics of it when it's finished.

There are really only 2 reason's a Lipo will Ignite. Charge at High Amps over the rated Voltage of 4.22/cell

Or Over discharge at high Amperage. If your ESC Fries it can take a Lipo out as it usually creates a Direct Short.

But If you ever say a fully charged NIHM Cell Get shorted and Blow Up you would be less worried about Lipo's

Yeah Ive seen a receiver pack go just sitting on a table at a race. Wasnt even hooked up. Blew all the ends of each battery out and sounded like a 38 being fired.

we do...but since they came from way away to support....and our "house" rules allowed any American muscle car at that time, it was allowed...but that was back then...

we are a FULL USVTA track and supporters....and Im hoping to get some more West TN support come Sunday Jan 29th...you should come up and run some VTA with them...I know of 2-3 that are making the trip...bring Mike with you

Didn't realize that was an old picture.
Everyone knows how I am about rules. Nashville has some of the BEST racing anywhere VTA, Touring, and 1/12th. Would hate to see it change or diluted by others. Great people, track and atmosphere.
Really want to race, but Sunday is a work day for me with time off a premium. Hope to make it up at least once a month (both 1/12th and USVTA) and will bring Mike. Attending the Snowbirds warm-up is doubtful but can never tell.
Enjoyed watching your Mustang destroy all the Chevys last time. Did you do it again?

I really had fun racing VTA at Snowbirds in 2009. I'm not to thrilled about having to run a Novak 25.5 motor or having to mount in a rediculous driver figure, but I 'm going to run at this years Snowbirds anyway. Hopefully the class is still as fun as I remember.

Im not sure if the Snowbirds will accept the alternative to mounting the driver in your car. Plus its very difficult to wear a bra and Mouse ears on your head at the same time.

Robk can fill you in. At one point in time you were allowed to not put the Driver in your car if you would wear a Bra on your head while you were driving. I think the rule should extend to ceramic bearing users and tire warmers and ported endbell users, but that is just a side note. The Mouse ears are a Snowbird thing. If you get a BQ screw you have to wear mouse ears while you drive. I still dont quite understand the circumstance behind the BQ but Im sure Dirla or EA can fill you in.
