Mark is correct...10 Pro Tuned motors from Bob Novak and Charlie...these motors are set pretty much identical, something like +/-.04...they will be re-checked for the event and numbered. You pick a number and thats your motor for the event. No extra cost this year either.

Concourse, the event within the event.....Ive seen some of the best bodies looking so good over the years. And I understand the time and effort to get the results we want from our paint jobs. Well if you dont know, let me introduce you to Mr. Justin Lyons and his Track Lyons Curbs. These are design to basically save your bodies and keep that lid looking new. Tracks all across the country have started using these including Snowbirds. Now Justin and his Curbs are coming to the USVTA Southern Nationals.

He is also doing a racer and beginner layout that will be fun and challenging for all. Nice flow and enough technical run to make everyone smile.

So please join me in thanking Justin and Track Lyons for coming onboard for this years event. You can check out more of his amazing products here

I can attest to this, these work perfectly. You can actually keep a body for a race season not just a few races.

Very nice and very forgiving if you KO a corner.
