A little bit off topic but since I figure all the VTA experts on on this thread, I'll ask: I'm building a VTA car and need some guidance on FDR - track is large asphalt outdoor. What's a good starting FDR? Thanks in advance for the help.

My first USVTA Scale National and I'm exhausted. The racing was rough but I really enjoyed the company of the guys at my pit table which made the weekend worth it! This is a well organized event. Eric and crew did a great job as well as all the racers that chipped in to help out. Hopefully everyone also appreciates what the sponsors bring to this event and support them with their hobby $$$. Thanks for the experience guys.

Congrats to all the winners, especially Kevin K who took the USVTA "Championship Belt" this year with a perfect performance in A1 & A2, allowing him to sit out that crazy backward A3!

Edit: Should add that what impressed me most about Kevin's dominating performance is that he did it with a vintage XXX-S chassis. In fact there was a lot of older cars running at the top this weekend, which just reinforces how well the USVTA formula works to level the playing field.

So that's why your pit spot was empty all weekend because the ghost was sitting in it?
