I think that maybe you are getting to the last page, but that it just doen't look like it in the indicated page number. What I mean is that for me, when I click on this thread for the last page, it appears by the time stamps on the posts I am reading that I am on the last page, because the posts are all very recent, but the page number on the top or bottom of the page seems to indicate that there are more pages to go. I am actually looking at the most recent posts, but it looks like I'm not, going by the page numbers. Is this others experience also?

Also, the first time I click on the "last page", I get a "problem connecting" message. I hit the refresh button and then I get the page. (I haven't changed my settings yet and probably won't, because I don't deserve something in my life working as it's supposed to.)

Don't forget to check those local hobby shops if you are looking for tires. I think popular online stores like A-main ran out on this week's shipment before they even filled all their back orders. But distributors got the tires and are filling orders. I just came from the LHS near me and they had 4 pairs of fronts and 2 pairs of rears in stock.

Oh how sweet that would be if Team Assoc. offered a fully USVTA legal RTR car. So racers could walk into the store, buy a Team Associated TC4 Club Racer, charge up the battery, put some Paragon on the tires, and enter the VTA Race! AWESOME!

It would be AWESOME if associated released a "VTA ready, out of the box" club racer.

Tower and Phil's Hobby Shop (the only ones i checked) have front AND rear tires in stock.

If you don't have a LHS, you might want to order some...

Open gearing but tracks are left to their own discretion on house rules. BTW, it was never 4.0. The gearing rule was 4.2:1 FDR.

What he said...

4.0 is a good place to start and then adjust from there for track size and motor temps.
