Thanks to Eric and family for a great race again, and to the tech crew, who did a great job. It was also so nice to see so many well done bodies on the cars. Thanks to HPI also for all the prizes and sending Colin out. Even with all the general craziness out there, we still had a great turn out, and a great time.

Also congrats to Brad Johnson for UNIFYING THE TITLES!!!! That's right, he now holds both belts!!!!

Yes, and all occupants were killed in the roll over crash (decapitation)

Had a great time again.. thanks to all involved putting on the event. The crew from Omaha grew by one this year hopefully we can talk more into it next year because we will be back!

Some highlights for me... Concourse - man some of you take it to a level I didn't know existed! Awesome!!... Don't remember his name for sure but or the exact race but the Yellow/Black camaro that was way out in the lead and broke the rear.. ran two laps with one wheel hangin and still pulled of a second.... Of course the decapitation mentioned earlier... I think I was in that race but saw the after!! Also exploding cars... and then some just awesome battles!!

One thing I'm not so happy about... I never tried to make a pass by jumping the corner!! I practiced it on Sunday and got pretty good at it. That could have been my secret weapon!!

Next year you guys should add roll bars and safety harness' to the rules. Especially with those convertibles. A small plastic guy could get killed in one of those things.

Had a blast this past weekend racing toy cars. I've been racing various forms of rc for quite a while, but this was my first VTA event, and my first visit to The Track.

I was very impressed with the way the program was run. Tech process was smooth, and the program was run as good as any I've ever been seen.

I do have to ask, though, a question to people that have more experience running this class. The quality and style of the driving was very surprising to me. This is not a rant, rather just looking for some other opinions here.

It sure seemed to me that a 'quality pass' was very rare. In my experience, catching the driver in front of you, is one thing. Setting up and making a pass is another. The racing on Saturday, this did not seem to be the case. It seemed like much more like catch, take-out, drive thru the guy in front of you in one 'fluid' motion.

Granted, this was a tight track with a narrow race line, but the 'drive with a knife in your teeth' style seemed to prevail. It felt like an offroad Slash race, where contact is kind of part of the deal.

Was Saturday unique, or is this just the way this class runs?

This is a great summary of what I've seen in VTA just about everywhere.
