I have recently seen guys going up to 8.5 and that adds to the lipo danger

MOST IMPORTANTLY: If it's not in the rules, and does not encompass the spirit of slower, controlled racing with realistic looking cars, consider it illegal. This is called the "Spirit of VTA" Rule. The class is based on slower, equal playing field competition with less traction, minimal aerodynamic aids and mostly older carpet racing technology. The final objective is close, fair, wheel-to-wheel racing for all.

All decisions of the race promoter or track owner are final.

I think this is where this comes into place...some tracks dont follow the 8.4 ROAR rule..and even more dont check voltage at all..

for most official USVTA races...most will have the 8.4 rule in play
