No cooling holes or other changes allowed to motor.

Battery Specifications:
Battery Specifications: 2 cell LiPo hard cased, 5000 mAh limit


Ride Height Specification:
Minimum ride height is 5mm.


Weight Specification:
Minimum 1550g in race-ready trim


Race Specification:
- 5 minute qualifiers
- 8 minute mains
- Absolutely NO IFMAR-type starts. All heats and mains should be straight-up starts, with random sorts for each heat. Non random sorts should shuffle starting order for each heat.


Optional Main Variations:
- 12-20 car A-mains, depending on car counts.
- Invert qualifying order based on random hat pull (top 6-10 cars).
- "LeMans" type starts where all cars are lined up on an angle to the racing line in order.
- Run track in reverse rotation for mains.
- Rolling starts




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 VTA" 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.


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

I put this video together and posted it on YouTube after last year's awesome event. Should give you a taste of what you are in for if you weren't able to come last year. Of course, reading this thread it sounds like the track and facility have been improved even more for this year!

+ YouTube Video
