Yeah it should be a blast, I am going to setup a tc4 for my girlfreind to try to learn to drive (currently looking for a lot of parts, lol) but as soon as I get it dialed in I will let you guys take a look at it and get dialed in.

Default VTA

Mike, I'm going to put on together and I'm trying to get Eric Zeigler to convert one of his cars over too. Might be ready on 11/16 for TriState. Jim Krafft

sounds good jim, we are looking forward to it. You should really like the way these cars drive. I had Brandon shells drive mine last night and he loved it too, just goes to show all drivers on all levels can enjoy these things. The other good thing is his lap times where close to mine, he was a little quicker, but heck it would of been a huge difference in other classes. So I am really happy with the new cars.

Thats the beauty of VTA hopefully it wont take that many parts. Im not saying that you never break anything in VTA thats not the case at all, but its far more forgiving than when you run in a 13.5 or worse, a 10.5 or mod class.

I was so tired of having to take my car home in a bag.

i thought the trans am class was kind of silly at first, until bigmike let me drive his car, it was so much fun the realism and all. i have an old mi2 that will soon be ran in this class. i think this class is very good for the hobby.

I am going to have to make it up there for a VTA race. I have always liked the track there at tristate. Plus they have a great shop.

I can do you some in vinyl and actually anyone who runs vintage at tri state I will make you number, Just let me know if you want square or round back ground and what colors. Most popular is round white back ground with black numbers.

c-ya at the track.
