Yes. The first line of the body list has All bodies currently on the USVTA body list. Both of these are on there, so they are good to go. Enjoy!

ESC's never NEEDED to be approved when ROUND CELLS were used - the 4c version of the GTB came w/ NO Heat Sink or Fan (because 4c rounds cells didn't need it) - there's wasn't really much else that was different, other than I believe the wires were hard soldered instead of plugs for the small wires.

Most of us who ran the "Regular" GTB had covers made out of 1/8" aluminum and removed the heatsinks and fans.

I don't think esc's were ever looked at by ROAR until boosting became an issue.
Please don't anyone even start a discussion on that. It is a dead one now.

That's because brushed motors and ESCs worked a lot differently than brushless motors and ESCs do. With brushed motors/escs you couldn't advance the timing of a motor in the ESC like you can with brushless motors/escs. That was all previously taken care of in motor regulations. But now that timing is adjusted in the ESC we have to have an approval process for ESCs as well.

I hope somebody gets these and does some really good asphalt testing...(on-road and oval)

I'd like to myself, but I can't spend the $$ on them at the moment to test for a non-class...(I have too many other r/c needs...like some new VTA tires) But, I do hope they work so classes can be built around them in the really near future.

TESTERS - please post info as soon as possible!

Other things I'd like to know...

Best Mounting Methods (ie: cleaning, drying, etc.), adhesive or glue to use.

any other tips/tricks to mount them true.

Thanks!!!

We have been mounting them just like off road tires. Cleaning with motor spray, and using medium CA glue. The rims have ribs on them, so once you get the tire on there, it just fits correctly. Because the tires are belted, they do not undergo as much stress as lets say an 1/8th buggy tire (the pizza cutter effect where the tire gets all stretched out under acceleration). So in all reality, the glue job does not need to be as perfect as it would on an 1/8th buggy tire.

There is a good video on TQ racing's website (the are a hobby store in Chino CA) on mounting F1 tires. Take a gander at that, it might help.

Dumper,

I see you encourage smaller tracks to use 21.5. What about larger tracks using 13.5?

What if any are the problems with running 13.5?

Thanks,

Jose
