Event:
2012 USVTA+ Southern Nationals in Music City, USA, will be the 2nd year for this event. Last year the event pulled in over 90 entries,over 20 sponsors, and racers from over 10 different states. We are on track to surpass those numbers already. This event is listed by RCtech as one of the top tier on-road events. Is is also one of the largest USVTA events in the country, and maybe even in the world.

Track:
The track is Thunder RC Raceway, owned by Robert Dirla(Nashrcracer). The track has had some major updates since last years event. We have added very smooth sub-floor. The carpet itself is less than a year old. The track layout will be Vegas style, that will be put down that Wed and Thurs with closed doors, so no homefield advantage. We also just added fans on the drivers stand.

USGT is going to be a new thing for me so I may need some help shaking out a new chassis and also the motor I thought I was going to use turned out to be the wrong wind. How did I miss that? Looking for a good deal/advice on a motor for USGT.
