All Current USVTA rules will be followed
No 1-ways are allowed…..cars must be full time 4 wheel drive all the time

***we will not allow the Turbo feature to be enabled for the all Tekin ESCs. You may run all the normal timing advance you wish, but the Turbo must be off. Trans Am is about cars that are fairly equal, and good racing. This is meant to ensure we are trying to reach that goal. We will have a Hot Wire and PC with us to help anyone make this change at any race of the series.***


Attention all VTA Racers.....The USVTA has banned the use of the Advanced Electronics ESC or Black Diamond ESC from use in the Trans AM class. We are also following this rule as well so if you get one of these do not plan on using it in Trans AM.



F1
Any RWD 2wd F1 car as long as it can use Tamiya size/style wheels
Only Tamiya style foam tires
Silver can motors >>13,500 rpm limit

WGT
Will follow Basic WGT rules
Only the Lilac compound Spec Foam tires with the stripe will be allowed to be used
Any 200MM body can be used but must retain the front lower splitter/lip of the body….so nothing super slammed low will be allowed to be raced.

Each class other then Novice will need to have a minimum of 5 cars to race that day….in the event that a class has less than 5 cars for the day it will be up to the race directors judgment to allow the racers to race but there will be no points awarded for that class on that day.

Awards…..
Awards to be given out based on turn out for the entire series…..
Example if a class averages 5-9 entries per race then there will be awards for the top 3…..if a class averages 10-19 entries there will be awards for the Top 5…..if a class averages 20+ entries per race then there will be awards for the Top 10 in points.

Points
Will be the standard format of 100, 99, 98 etc point system with 1 bonus point each race for the TQ of the class.
There will be 5 total races with 1 race(your lowest number) being your throw out
We will use the best 4 of the 5 races to count towards the overall point total with that throw out total being your tie breaker.

The only class these points will not be the same for will be for Trans AM…..This year the Hurricane All-Star Carpet Series will be run in conjunction with the USVTA Great Lakes Series. The USVTA GLS will have 7 total races with 5 races counting towards its point’s total. There will be two races in addition to the 5 regular Hurricane Series races ...1 additional race in November and 1 in January. The last USVTA GLS race will be the last All-Star Carpet Series race so awards will be handed out then. This also gives everyone in Trans AM an opportunity to make up a bad performance or a missed date at one of the additional races.

Hurricane Choice Award
This year Brad and Hurricane Motorsports have decided to run a money back program for the series. If you use a Hurricane motor in the 13.5 or 17.5 rubber tire classes and you win the A-main of either of these two classes you will then get your entry fee back from that class on that day. So this award will be up for grabs at each of the 5 races these classes are run. After the main is run and you win you have to bring your car into tech and the motor must retain the Hurricane sticker as it came out of the package.....Brad will award you your entry fee back for that class.

Rules and Dates are subject to change....

Good news!! The series is a lot of fun. The turn out last year was unreal. Hopefully this year will be even better. Truly a good time.

I'm talking with Cooper and I think we'll shut Strictly down for that weekend of the first race up at Winthrop and push as many of the asphalt racers as we can to attend the first race. As we get closer to the end of Summer we'll know better.

A thought: Someone should print up some flyers and get a stack over to the new Elk Grove place too. That and all the area hobbyshops.

Questions??

I have a question on the RCGT rules;

It states "ONLY HPI 26MM PRO-COMPOUND BELTED TIRES WITH STOCK INSERTS".
Was this meant to say the HPI X patterns? and either of the X pattern compounds?

Also;
Is the VTA weight per the VTA rules?
Might want to add that the VTA tires need to be the treaded version, as there is a slick version available.

Looking forward to this series again.

Hey Bob.....for RCGT we wanted it to be only 1 tire to keep the cost down and to stop people from buying all 3 types of tires to see which one works the best. This way its just 1 tire to buy and what ever type of rims you want. Plus these tires being belted will last a long time. I will post the part numbers for the tires that are allowed in both classes.

For Trans AM I will make the clearification on the rules its only the treaded tires that are allowed. The weight we raised the wait to keep them in line with the rest of the classes so its easier to tech. Plus maybe the extra weight will slow the cars down a little??? We are still kicking around the idea of a higher FDR limit but more testing will need to be done for that to become a rule for the series.

Great to see the rules posted this early! I am looking forward to the series!
The only thing that is bad, I got the wrong HPI tires to use in RCGT(#4490).
Got plenty of time to get everything ready!
