There's also another Touring Car based oval class called Street Stock. If you use the Pro Line Bead Lock wheels and any 2.2 tires, they bolt right up to 190mm Touring Cars that makes them 9" wide. We have a wide variety of Street Stock bodies that work. A great fun class for all skill levels for a cool Vintage Oval look. Here's my personal 59 Plymouth Street Stock, plus my Pontiac Trans Am for Vintage Oval. Both will be races tomorrow....plus my Pan Cars!!

As a nostalgic class with spec rules, I bet it would not be long before we old guys would be racing the younger crowd and sportsman racers that want a fun class.
Well, the idea would be to try and get "crossover" guys: a cheap(er) way to go oval racing using older Touring Cars and spec'ing the electronics and tires like USVTA. Oval racers that like the "vintage" style bodies (such as myself) should be interested; and "road-racing" guys should like the "easier" layouts of oval racing, beatin' and bangin' fenders.

Gary: you mention Pro-Line beadlocks. Are those for Touring Cars? I was thinking of using the HPI "NASCAR style" wheels, and slick tires.

Jimmy- Here is the part number for the wheels...PRO270402 . They are a bigger wheel that takes any 2.2 rubber tire, so you can run asphalt, carpet or dirt oval depending on the tire selection. They are bead locks so they are reusable too. It's perfect for the 9" wide bodies. It's real "Bombers" Baby!!!

Grumpy- I'm sure you can use the Plymouth at SRS...I know guys are using them there...Tell Adam I said you could...LOL

I'll do just that Gary............. I hate to buck the rules but they should be okay as long as they are 9" and the Plymouth is.

Actually, if you dig up a hard copy of the Street Stock rules for SRS, all of our Street Stock bodies are on the list including the Plymouth. Mike Sheehan started the class there and set up the rules in January. Have fun with your Street Stock.

That is strange Gary. I downloaded the whole PDF rules from their site. Well, I like what you found better....

I may go with the Merc if that's the case. Love that body style. Old school like I am....
Can I get it direct from your site?
Also, what tires are you running there?
I won't be ready for a couple weeks, but I will see you there soon.

If you guys are interested, here's what I had figured for an "All-American Stock Car" class.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Use the USVTA rules as a base. Touring-car chassis, AWD/4WD. No "oval-only" chassis. Use USVTA electronics/battery/motor rules. Driver figure not required.

Motor Specifications:
25.5 brushless with 2C LiPo: Novak Vulcan 25.5 Spec brushless motor or Ballistic 25.5 ONLY combined with any hard-cased 2C 7.4v LiPo pack up to and including 5000 mAh capacity. Novak motors are the ONLY motor allowed at this time. All house track rules regarding LiPo usage apply. Only physical motor timing advance is allowed, however Ballistic motors must not be advanced beyond the last line of the timing range sticker. 12.3 mm rotor diameter only (no "tuning" rotors are allowed, only stock Novak rotors allowed). Using ceramic bearings in the motor makes you a dork. No modifications or optional parts allowed on motor can, endbell, stator, or rotor. No cooling holes or other changes allowed to motor. Fans and external clip on heatsinks are allowed, but integral type heatsinks/fans including but not limited to those that require motor disassembly to mount are illegal.

All decisions of the race promoter or track owner are final.

Jimmy your idea is great. Hope it works for you FL racers.

Here is a look at some of the original Trans AM cars for VTA, not exactly bombers, but real nostalig for the older racers.
