I have a question about this as well. Is this a 1 min run with just your hot lap or how many laps you can do in that 1 min?

I ask because I failed hardcore at the Souther USVTA Nats thinking it was just hot lap and on my 2nd lap I cut a corner closer then I should have flipping and broke and DNF... I did 1 good lap, but found out after it was how many laps you could do in that 1 min. I was one of the first few people to go so at the time I was under the wrong impression. I got to start in the back of the pack and learned my lesson.

1 Week away! We are going to have a packed house. I do ask the assistance of anyone that may be able to help us out and bring tables, chairs and extension cords.

How Many VTA cars are you planning for in each qualifying heat?
Also what tire compound is the approved for your track?
Thanks

Most likely 7. Final car count will determine. Looks like we are over 60 vta vars as of now.

As I'm sure everyone is starting to get their gear together, one thing I would like to make clear is ABSOLUTELY NO CHEATING. We have the ability to check stators and rotors. For anyone who is unclear on the rules....http://www.usvintagetransam.com/rules/index.html

I have name tags that I have purchased to reserve pit spots that will have the name that I have from rcsignup. If you would like to put your online name as well, feel free.

Everyone please check in at the hobby shop to sign up when you arrive. Even if you have signed up and paid. Some guys have paid and some have not. We also have a few guys that are wanting to switch classes as well, which is fine. I just want to make sure we have every ones appropriate information. You can also pick up your t-shirts for all those who ordered one.

Really looking forward to a fun weekend!

Really, this is toy car racing. Nobody really cheats at this stuff just for a bowling trophy.
