  • Wow were gettin' started already.......

    "Motor Specifications:
    25.5 brushless with 2C LiPo: Novak SS25.5 Pro brushless motor (pn:3425V) Ballistic 25.5 (pn:3625V- stator only pn:S6625) Club (pn:3331) or Boss (pn:3626V) ONLY combined with any hard-cased 2C 7.4v LiPo pack up to and including 5000 mAh capacity. Novak motors are the ONLY motor allowed at this time. All house track rules regarding LiPo usage apply. Only physical motor timing advance is allowed, however Ballistic motors must not be advanced beyond the last line of the timing range sticker. 12.3 mm rotor diameter only (no "tuning" rotors are allowed, only stock Novak rotors allowed). Using ceramic bearings in the motor makes you a dork. No modifications or optional parts allowed on motor can, endbell, stator, or rotor, other than the Boss #5925 Ballistic 540 Vented Endbell/Bearing Racing Upgrade Kit (replacement) . No cooling holes or other changes allowed to motor. Fans and external clip on heatsinks are allowed, but integral type heatsinks/fans including but not limited to those that require motor disassembly to mount are illegal.

    All decisions of the race promoter or track owner are final. "

    I put the "approved" sticker on the box and took the picture after we tested the motor last night. Everything was set up identically to the Ballistic motor in the test car and the lap time was .1 slower on hot lap!! A little timing adjustment and the car was exactly the same speed as the Ballistic. As it was mentioned, the motor ran about 10*F cooler, so we will allow the Novak vented endbell to be used on the other motors.

    I really want to keep everything as close to the same as possible but obviously this will be the only motor manufactured going forward, so the endbell allowance is a natural to keep things even. Novak was good enough to warn us that this was coming and worked with us to ensure that the motors would as close as possible in performance to what we had, and I appreciate that. It looks like they have been able to get it right. Mucho thanks to them!

    Think your link is wrong but I managed to find the poll. I have no business voting since I'm 1000 miles away from FL., but I did. You might point out to the people asking the question, "ROAR or USVTA," that ROAR still has not officially updated it's 2010 rule book which specifies VTA as a 21.5 class, but has run it as a 25.5 for several recent major events. Point is that you don't have an official written reference for ROAR rules where USVTA rules have been mostly unchanged going on three years now.

    And for the whiners that complain about battery availability, there are a whole bunch of new reasonably priced 5000mah batteries available from several different manufacturers now. Many of them are marketed specifically as VTA packs and all of them good enough for use in a variety of classes beside just VTA. I have one of the new Trinity "Sting Extreme" packs and I love it. I haven't even run it in VTA yet, just USGT and it has been very competitive so far.

    SEE:

    Which ruleset would you prefer for VTA?

    From the homepage of the site, on the right side, there is an option to vote on either ROAR or USVTA rules. At the moment there is a 28% advantage (current voting results) to run ROAR rules. I run this class in Florida and like Pete, would like to see USVTA rules in place.

    Here is a chance to make USVTA rules the standard for a long-standing series in the South East. Posting this up so that guys racing VTA in this area are aware of the vote (if they had not checked the Fseara website). Not sure how many on this thread race in Florida but it's a good way to get the message out to those that do.
