The Ground Pounder's VTA class runs 1450g, with the HPI classic 5 or 8 spoke wheels and the HPI vintage tread tire part number #4793 front and #4797 rear with stock inserts. Body must be a classic muscle car from the mid 60's early 70's Mustang, Barracuda, or Camaro and the paint schemes must be of the period and not flourescent types as that is frowned upon. The motor that the club runs is the Novak 25.5 VTA motor with any none ramping "blinky" type ESC. Final drive ratio must be between 3.5 to 3.7, not under 3.5 like 3.4639 and not over 3.7233. The battery that we are using is any 2 cell currently approved by ROAR. Hope that clears things up.

Gordon.

I have a Tamiya rally car, it would be perfect for this...  Maybe have some surface variations - part asphalt and part dirt?

OK, the VTA motor is fixed and I don't know if Jeff wants to run this weekend, but I'm ready for some 17.5 NR TC action and VTA or Mini racing, and some Stock Slash.

HEY, Gary I had an idea for a once a year race. The race would be like an American Le Mans series with a two driver team, two or four wheel drive TC's and the motors can be 27 turn brushed or 540 silver can or 25.5, 21.5, or 17.5 brushless with a run time of 20 or 30 minutes. The teams must us one radio and not two the same a driver must complete 50% of the race and pit stops are mandatory for changing drivers or batteries. The course will be on road with small jumps no higher than an inch and a half and a table top on the back straight. Any feed back?

Gordon.

Side Street Speed Meet, Sept 23rd, SW leg of Regional Parkway. ISC timers will be there so records can be broken. I'll be blowing off the street and putting a light coat of soda down so speeds should be up.

Just wanted to let you guys know i think i mis-spoke at the meeting. our F1 program will be running 21.5 / silver can not 17.5. We are running a rubber tire F1 class. It takes 3 to make a class so we welcome our f1 foam friends too! The meeting was pretty cool too! Its good to be back runnin parking lot again.

Rolling start....For the first time I thought it would be cleaner to try single file and it worked fine. If we have more cars double file would be interesting but I suspect there would be accidents. Don't know till we try it....

I had Brian peel off in turn three only so he could take his truck off the track...prefer not having non competing cars in the infield.....

Hey Dan.... 25.5 non adjustable motors, non ramping or blinky ESC's, HPI wheels, tires and foams, final ratio between 3.5 and 3.7:1, I think 1450 gms minimum weight. Thats about it I think...

We're going to get the rules finalized shortly. We weren't even sure if we were going to run VTA at the beginning of the year so we've kinda dragged our feet on this.

Did I miss anything?

Would like to give it another try-wasn't sure if we were going single file or side by side.Then i guess we were tryn to go 4 wide for a lap then single file.Thought maybe the pace truck should pull into the infield on the front straight let us get around turns 1&2 then hit button as we are getting into 3.Thats kinda how we did it in a full scale race. We could get it right and it would be really cool.Just my 2cents.

I enjoyed the rolling start!  I think it went pretty well, especially for being the first time trying it!
