again I'll reiterate VTA is a slow class that you might get bashed wither unintentional or out of the drivers wanting something that is not so serious as TC. Plus understand IF you want to be serious about a class and RACE please step up to TC. If you don't like getting punted sometime several times in one lap stay out of VTA. I tell the same thing to the slash stock guys and when I ran it I got bashed by less experienced drivers and accepted it. I want you guys to have fun in the class but you can't go off complaining if someone less experienced takes you out. now if batboy does it to you peel him I do, but I won't do it in touring car there is a difference.

ALSO from the VTA site

Welcome to the home for the newly created Vintage T/A 1/10th scale R/C road racing class, based on 4wd touring cars. The class rules are developed to provide close racing with controlled chassis, battery, motor, tire and body specifications. The goal of the VTA class is to bring back awesome looking cars in a cost controlled racing format where the result is just plain fun. The speed of the specification package brings close and competitive racing for sportsman, intermediate and experienced hobbyist that rewards driver development.

With a decline in all R/C racing in recent years, racing needs a big shot of fun and excitement--and this is the perfect class. Far more reasonable speeds, low costs, realistic and exciting looking bodies, wheels and tires, less traction and wheel-to-wheel action drive this class. It IS the next big thing. It's appealing not only to spectators, but to new and old racers, alike. For a low initial cost, any prospective Trans-Am racer can get a car, a radio and be racing with very little time or effort. And the fact is that racers who have never raced before can be on the same level playing field as everyone else, and really enjoy doing so.
