Great conversion I used when I owned a TC3.

Why wouldn't it be VTA legal?

Did you do a search in RC tech for information about this chassis prior to posting about it? That's usually a great place to start..

VTA doesn't have any restrictions on the chassis aside from 1/10 touring. The IRS chassis is darned good but do some checking. I thought that was primarily for carpet use due to it's thickness. Most all of my VTA cars ,whether they were plastic tub chassis or carbon fiber were all set up pretty soft. Remember ,those tires aren't exactly maximum grip. You need a little flex. Nice upgrade but do a little homework first. Don't be afraid to contact them directly. They've been around a long time.
bdbachus...just read that old thread. Wow, it's an oldie but a goodie. definitely designed for carpet but apparently has some value on asphalt ....with a few little concerns. Good job finding that.
