Our next race is on Dad's day (6/21) so we'll be updating with some pics then....

We have a few more guys getting their nitro VTA's together for the 21st, so it is starting to catch on here....

Here is a video of a race we had at a local Nifty Fiftys restaurant in the spring....

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


We have about 15-20 cars total, and the list gets bigger every race!

Much like the USVTA (electric) we decided on using any nitro car/engine, but must use HPI Vintage tires (treaded) and wheels with a Vintage body.

The vintage tires are the "great equalizer" so it keeps big HP in check.

USVTA Body rules apply (period paint schemes, car numbers, etc.) except that we decided to use CLEAR touring wings to help keep the vintage look intact.
Wow those bodies look awesome!!

That is the typical reaction from the spectators we attract too!

Everyone who watches can relate to these body styles....

i've poked around the idea. some like to idea but most like the bodies more then anything. a few of us run vta bodies in 1/10 nitro but with foams and wings and what ever motor. i guess most think theres no room for entree or spec nitro.

Hey GanG! Great day of Vintage/RCGT racing yesterday at Nifty Fiftys!

Awesome turnout, awesome weather, awesome spectators, awesome miLKshAKES!!!!!!!!!

Can't thank you guys enough for an outstanding day of promoting R/C racing to the masses!

So many spectators walked away with a lot of HPI Catalogs and website info, so they can follow us online! Quite a few wanted to join us in the future, so this is only the beginning to building up our onroad program, to what it was back in the day....

More new race faces as well....Nice to see more people in Nitro Vintage going with real retro bodies like a 63 Corvette, a 57 Chevy, and even a 61 Chevy Impala! How cRaZY was that????

All these body styles fits into the Nifty Fiftys theme, so this is a win-win for everyone!!!!

Here are the RayZults from yesterday....
http://www.sjccr.com/results/Alpine_...07-05-2009.htm

Here are a couple of cool pics too....









The rest of my pics can be found in the www.sixfoottiger.com gallery

Nitro Vintage is our biggest class at our races right now....We had two heats, and more are on the way!
