They only run one class and its most similar to USGT. Everyone runs 21.5 for the most part but my 25.5 (vta setup) was competive. My VTA tune on the tires that work there was not on the other hand. They use a sweep premounted slick that works quite well but I had a bit more roll than I'd like w/ the vta chassis setup.

See page one.

I was running a USVTA legal setup as well.

I recall coach saying he has two loaner transponders.

Email him for more info.

Default Spring racing season 2013

Happy new year all!!!
My new years res is to post more...lol...
O.K. so here goes,
1) Racing is open but I like to screen drivers because this occurs at an elementary school I rent out, it is not a hobby shop or "race track"
2) We run one class, it is a 50X70 gym and the motors are fast enough, they are silver can brushed, black can brushed, 25.5 brushless and 21.5 burshless all no boost.
3) Any body, any tire (Sweep OG Spec pink inserts (soft) seem to work well, reverse allowed if no one is passing by, 2 cell lipo or 6 cell nimah, etc.
4) We have beginner, medium and advanced drivers.
5) Our goal is to have fun, AND help each other out with setup, driving skills, etc. It is a tight technical track, if you can drive well here, you should do fine anywhere!
6) We use the I-lap transponders, I think I have 2 extra ones so try to get one if coming, check out rclapcounter
7) I charge 10 bucks for racing, this covers the cost of renting the building (15.00 and hour), the insurance, and duct tape, etc. If money is left over at the end of the season, we get pizza, trophies, etc.
8) Please try to contact me ahead of time so we can send out info sheet, etc.
E-mail : [email protected]
Thanks,
Hope to hear from others soon!!

Unfortunately, we won't be able to have a practice date, but there will be time to practice for about an hour before qualify time on the 18th of Jan.
Hope everyone can make it!
