Default VTA: For Those of You Who Like to Turn Left...

We're starting a new class at our local track here in Ohio.

It's pretty much based off of the VTA rules, but we're opening up the body, tire, and wheel options a little bit. We're looking to get a "Vintage Stock Car' thing going on the oval tracks.

All-American Stock Cars ("VTA on the Oval"):

This class is designed to mimic a "VTA (Vintage Trans-Am) on oval" class. Touring-car chassis; limited motor/ESC combos; spec tires/wheels; and old-school stock car bodies. **NOTE**: Class rules are basically: VTA rules (copied and pasted straight from the VTA Web site) with some "stock car" touches (i.e., tires/wheels and bodies).

*NOTE*: Most of these rules are direct from the Vintage Trans-Am rules page located here -->: Vintage Trans-Am Rules

Chassis Specification:
Four Wheel Drive touring car chassis only. Any era or brand 4wd chassis is allowed.

Motor/ESC/Battery Specifications:
25.5 brushless with 2C LiPo: Novak SS25.5 Pro brushless motor (pn:3425V) or Ballistic 25.5 (pn:3625V- stator only pn:S6625) 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. No cooling holes or other changes allowed to motor.

Approved ESCs:

3813 (Vintage 8 Spoke Wheel 31mm Matte Chrome (6mm Offset))
3814 (Vintage 8 Spoke Wheel 31mm Gunmetal (6mm Offset))

MOST IMPORTANTLY: If it's not in the rules, and does not encompass the spirit of slower, controlled racing with realistic looking cars, consider it illegal. This is called the "Spirit of All-American Stock Cars" Rule. The class is based on slower, equal playing field competition with less traction, minimal aerodynamic aids and mostly older carpet racing technology. The final objective is close, fair, wheel-to-wheel racing for all. All decisions of the race promoter or track owner are final.

Body Specifications:
Mid 1950's to mid-1980s American pony car/stock car bodies only.

Body-provided deck lid spoilers only (no wings). No additional skirts or raised/extended wings or air control surfaces allowed. Body must be trimmed at body trim lines. Full rear bumper required. It is highly preferred that bodies are detailed in race type livery in period-correct paint schemes. Fluorescent colors, wild graphics, chromes and non-period correct paint schemes are frowned upon. All cars must have a number on both doors. Three-digit, "letter", and Roman numerals are permitted (A1, 17X, III, FOUR, etc.). Wheel covers of any type are NOT allowed.

Bodies must be 1955-1985 full-fendered stock car “Street Stock/Bomber/Thunder Car”-type body. Legal bodies are the following:
