U hit it $ ... It made all the MRT guys have to buy something else . makes tracks pay $100+++ for the updates then for those that didn't do the update that will eventually have problems they will have to buy new decoder(3000+$) so tracks were forced to get updates if they were smart

in MUSIC CITY, U.S.A.


DATE:
Sept 19TH-22ND


PLACE:
Thunder RC Raceway 810 Cherokee Ave Nashville, TN 37207
615-851-1876

TROPHY:
National Title Trophy
1st-10th Amain and 1st in lower mains and TQ


RULES:
FULL USVTA AND USGT

http://www.usvintagetransam.com/rules/index.html

ROAR
Touring Car and 12th Scale
Trinity Based D3.5 motors will not be allowed

ENTRY:
$35 first class, $15 second class, Jr VTA $10(FREE if parent is running VTA)


CLASSES:
____VTA
____USGT
____17.5 ROAR Stock TC on JACO BLUES($25 set)
____13.5 ROAR Stock 12th Scale
____JR VTA

In addition to FREE entry for Jr VTA if the parent is running VTA, Im going to take the 1st 50 Paid VTA entries and put all their names in a hat. The winner will receive a brand new Team Novak Edge / Ballistic Boss VTA 25.5T Race Combo.

NOTES:

USVTA,
1st Qualifier will be 1 min of open track for VTA....best time in that 60 seconds determines starting order. All qual will be heads up. Thats 5 qual for VTA. A-main will be triple mains points style

NO ADVANCED time on the Novak Ballastic motors past the last notch on the sticker. Motor tech for every VTA 25.5, motors will be broke down and resealed like Snowbirds, THIS WILL HAPPEN, per Robert Dirla Track owner.

Tire tread will need to be visible for every round.

The Ballastic 25.5 motor as we know it is being removed from the Novak line of motors. Its replacement is the New Novak Ballistic Boss VTA Edition 25.5T Brushless Motor(#3626V). I have been reassured by Novak and others that its the same motor that we currently use, with the exception of the vented endbells. So in short this motor will be allowed at the event. So with that being said, the older motors can use them as well, but must from Novak, part #5925. NO extra cutting on the endbells.

make sure that if you put vented end bells on your current motor, that's its the ones from Novak

correct but pure rc4 transponders will. I hear that MRT does have a trade in program to work with the new RC4 system but I haven't been able to confirm that.

You guys might want to put this info somewhere on the flyer because I would have came thinking my transponders worked and been a little upset. I know I am not the only one with MRT transponders.

that blame will fall on my shoulders...Ive been away from the RC scene and track, and when I came around I was told we upgraded....I assumed most of the other tracks did as well...Im in the same boat, as I have 5 MRT pt...lol..and looking for red ones now...

I hope you are still going to attend, Im not sure if that would stop me from attending one of the best USVTA events in the country, but if you are not I understand.

Just so we are clear I will put this info in the original post

Sorry Myron Kinnard

If you are running the MRT personal transponders, they will not work at Thunder RC home of the 2013 U.S.VTA+ Southern Nationals in Music City, U.S.A.

I still plan on coming. This just sucks to have this expense just so I can race here... At least I know now and can try to do something about it vs when I got down there. It's offical; the toy car racing budget has been blown out of the water this year.

Mylaps will trade your MRT transponders for a new 3-wire transponder for $35. I know that it sucks to have an expense like this pop up, but at least you can get an upgrade at a pretty big discount. I just had one of my transponders die, so i was not able to upgrade or trade it in. I was forced to buy a new transponder to the tune of $105.

Does the my laps transponder work on the old systems? Any of the Harbor Hobbies people in IL can chime in. I don't get to race much and that is the main place I do race at.

Entry paid for TC & 1/12! Now I need to get up there and get some practice in. I think a few of us from Onelug are planning on coming up on the 28th.

The 2 wire Mylaps hybrids will work on any system. They want $85 to trade for a hybrid. The new 3 wire will only work on a RC4 decoder, and an older decoder with the latest firmware (I'm pretty sure). The 3 wire are $35 when you trade in any older transponders including the MRT.
