I didnt really see too many people taking pictures other then Colin from HPI.....maybe send him an email and see if he can post some of his pics. I think most of us were racing to take too many pictures I posted some pictures earlier but that was really all I took I just didnt have time to really take a ton of pictures.

Wow....what just happened on this thread..? Are we still talking about the Silver Can RPM rule here...?

Guys...all these "Hacking" is totally nonsense...does the A-MAIN race has zero hacking...? No...infact, plenty...so does B-Main, C-Main...and almost all of the mains. The reason...I would say, is the layout of the track, it is a TIGHT track....however, it is NOT a bad track. Track need to be creative, if you want to race something wild open...go race the USVTA OVAL race...garantee to hacking, really...

I have raced at many VTA races at different track with different layout, generally, when I am racing outdoor, because they are usually bigger and the lanes are wilder, hacking is very limited. It is the same idea like racing 1/8th on road @ 1/8th track or some little parking lot....bigger is better. However, INDOOR carpet has their limit....I wish ERIC has won the lottery and start a track at McCormick Place and race 300 foot long Rc track...but ERIC did his best and created one of the best VTA track (I really like tight track, I always like TIGHT things as usual...). And bumping and hacking is something comes with...this is something EVERYONE need to deal with. But in that specific day...its all depends on WHO can handle it better then others...

I myself has plenty of hacking, including me hacking someone (I am not going to lie about that...sorry about that BILL, it was my fault) and I was hacked by others all day...........but again, at the end of the qualifies, I ended up out qualified ppls that I am usually NOT going to beat...that explained to me that even the fast guy are struggling....

USVTA is probably 1 of the few things that ppl can save some money and still race competitive...racing is suppose to be like that. And I have to agree what Wallstreet said, it was the design of the track this time...but I have to disagree what KevinK said...SLOT CAR racing is not the solution, they have plenty of HACKING...I remember someone @ the Ihoppy show in Chcago couple years ago almost ended up beating up each other because there were way too many hacking on SLOT CAR because they are too fast...

The idea of going to the NAT is to race...not really taking pictures and video, so I am sure most of us are busy wrenching VTA and try to turn at a tight track.

I will contact Team Al's (Al's hobby shop) and see they can share some pictures...I know they have some video however I am sure it is only a few and they were using tape so it might take some times to convert to digital format, I will try, but don't count on it...

Nash...I am sorry if my wording does offended you....I didn't mean what you did is wrong, infact, I have been to your website alot for all the big race coverage. I am just trying to say at this specific event, most of the ppl were concentrated on racing...only a few were doing pictures and video, and those who did, are for personal, not planning to share or post it online.

Thats why we need ppl like YOU to come to this event next year...again, my appology to you if what I said does offended you....my bad.

Im sure Nash's response was stated with a bit of chagrin. He is very laid back. And your point is well taken. But there are guys like me that are better videographers than they are racers. And guys like outlaw who are pretty proficient at both, plus he is an ace editor. And you know there cant be any pics unless somebody takes them.

I dont think anybody has any hard feelings.
