Default Onroad tc racing.

Hi all,
in your opinion what is the best class to start with to learn driving and learn setup.

VTA- you can learn all the basics with a relatively cheap chassis and then move up in class as your skill/knowledge/comfort improves.

I could agree but the tires make it so hard to figure out setup. The tires change so much. I actually have most my experience in that class.

If your goal is to go into 1/12 then WGTR the chassis are similar and you can use what you learn directly. Some parts carry over from the 1/10 to 1/12 chassis.

VTA is great to start out with TC, I started driving it about 2 weeks ago with an old but never raced TC5 chassis, used 25.5 motor and electronics. I got new tires to run consistently with only 2 or 3 practice runs on black carpet. I wouldn't recommend any 21.5 class as a starter, watching 21.5 TC stock the cars are really fast and hard enough to control with the better TC tires pairing them up with the USGT tires would make a more expensive learning curve.

If your local track offers a "Touring Stock" or a "Touring 21.5" (that they keep faster drivers out of), I would say start there. Although this is contrary to sweems' advice, I didn't find it that difficult because you can always "detune," so to speak, your speed via esc or tx. VTA seems very easy to get bored of once you get bitten by the speed bug. Just focus on being consistent...slow is smooth, smooth is fast.

I agree with the above post. Go to your local track and stay there for a couple of hours. Get there early before racing as the guys will be more open to take the time to speak with you. Run a class that has many participants... Not one that has 3 people in it. It may be a dying class and the following week they might not even have a class.....
