Smile TimeWarp HobbyTown USA Lake in the Hills 2018 Parking lot racing!!!!

2018 TimeWarp Raceway
parking lot schedule.

Pits open at 9:00 am Racing starts at noon

Itís that time again! Time to get outside and enjoy the beautiful summer weather.

USGT, F1, and VTA will use found at U.S. Vintage Trans-Am R/C Racing Series with a few minor exceptions. The PROTOform VTA tires are the only legal tire for VTA part #ís front 10140-** rear 10139-**.
We will allow bodies not on the approved list for USGT such as the Riley Daytona from McAllister
We do not require the driver figure in VTA

For USGT the USGT Spec tire from Gravity RC is the only legal tire.

Stock Touring tires at this time are open to any 24mm rubber touring type tire and wheel.

Mini will be based on Tamiya TCS rules and will use the fixed timing 17.5t Justock 3650SD G2 Sensored Brushless Motor. We did some testing at the end of last season and feel this will even out the playing field a little while making the carís a little slower and easier to drive. Tamiya brand tires are the only legal tire.



Sportsman: open to any 1/10 scale or smaller on-road type vehicle. (please ask if your car is legal for sportsman as there are too many possible variations to list)

TimeWarp TT: Tamiya TT-01 and TT-02 chassis, Johnson 540-J and RS-540 Torque-Tuned motors and 2s 7.4v battery. (see full rules at bottom)

2wd stock SCT: ROAR legal 17.5t motor and 2s 7.4v battery, any made for SCT tire or body.

Mini: 1300 grams Hobbywing fixed timing 17.5 motor and 2s 7.4v battery (540 silver can motor also legal)

F1: 1050 grams ROAR legal 25.5t motor and 2s 7.4v battery

USGT: 1380 grams ROAR legal 21.5t motor and 2s 7.4v battery

VTA: 1450 grams ROAR legal 25.5t motor and 2s 7.4v battery

Stock touring: 1350 grams ROAR legal 17.5t motor and 2s 7.4v battery

Mod touring: 1350 grams ROAR legal 2s battery

1/12 scale: 730 grams ROAR legal 13.5t motor and 1s 7.4v battery

May 5th Saturday race
May 20th (points race)

June 10th (points race)
June 15th Friday Night

August 17th Friday Night
August 26th (points race)
August 31st Friday Night
Sept. 16th


Asphalt points series.
Eight race days with three drops (the best five races are used).
To qualify for awards at the end of the series a class must have at least 4 cars compete for 5 of the points days. (sportsman is exempt from this rule)

The TimeWarp TT class is a new spec type class designed to be a low-cost entry level class with minimal tuning options allowing more time to be spent on driving and less on chassis setup. This is a perfect class for the already existing Euro Trucks out there.
The TT-01 and TT-02 chassis are the only legal chassisí (the TT-02S chassis is NOT legal)
The kit must be built EXACTLY per the instruction manual! No ear plugs in the gear differentials, they must spin freely and be assembled with the kit (or similar) grease. The final drive ratio will be a fixed gearing rule with the legal pinion/spur being determined as soon as the weather breaks.
The only allowed hop-up/option parts are bearings and Tamiya plastic CVA shocks part numbers 53619, 50746, and 54753. Any oil/piston allowed in the shocks. The chrome kit springs must be used (the black springs that come in the 54753 packages are NOT legal)
Legal tires are any 26mm Tamiya tire, kit tires from the Euro truck kit, and the PROTOform VTA tires.
Any 190-200mm non-touring body is legal.
The kit ESC must be used, and the ESC/motor wires cannot be shortened. Any type plug is allowed for battery hook-up.
Full stick pack batteries must be used, no shorty packs.

Thank You,
Shawn Conley

Is there usually showing for mod touring? I would think stock touring would be more reliable? I'm probably only gonna subject one touring car to the pavement (and an F1 car too)
I heard rumors Victor was trying to get some mod touring goin - I could probably go either way, I am happy to rock 17.5 and probably will, but if we're trying to get mod going or if there's not many stock guys, I could go to either

Down to just one kit at the moment but I am expecting more to arrive at the begin of next week. We have bearing kits and shocks in stock. We will also have a few used its for sale after the Enduro at the end of the month.

Vic push Mod touring every spring Hahaha. we did have Mod on a couple of the Friday night races but it's definitely not a regular thing. 17.5 would be the safe beet.

There were a few people running the aluminum chassis last year but the majority were running the carbon chassis.

If you don't mind letting me set the timing on it so it turns about the same rpm as the Hobbywing I don't have a problem with you running the Reedy.

Is the TT01/2 class a go? To be clear I can build a stock TT01 or TT02 and swap my USVTA wheels/tires and any non touring body?

Yes it is a go, we raced them the first weekend but mother nature stopped us this past Sunday. You are correct on the body and tires as long as they are the new protoform vta tires.

Rain kept us from racing Sunday but we managed to dry the track and get a little practice in. Hoping for good weather for June 3rd so we can get this season rolling.
