What do people do that fly in? I figure 2 vintage cars (2wd and 4wd), maybe a heavy metal truck and all the associated support parts would be very hard to check in airline. Not a typical modern weekend racer set up which I wouldn't really care if they lost.

2 or 3 cars, box or two of backup parts or car, batteries, etc.

Feels like I need a 14hr. drive to avoid? So tamiyadan, a 3 hor. drive, no big deal.

Nothing ruins the vintage nationals😁

It’s a great event, anytime you can race little rc cars against other people, it’s always fun....whoever is going to win, is going to win, regardless of their equipment, you can put an original gold pan with a 1200mah pack, silver can motor, and mechanical speed control into the hands of a Alex K per say or a Tim Cover and he’s going to win👍
Life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what R/C car you're gonna get next!!!

Well put, you just described most racing or at least my local scene well. There are a handful of guys who seem to spend 24/7 at the track combined with some natural talent who always win no matter what the class or rules. I only recently started racing again after 25 years and it is clear I will never beat these guys no matter if I ran twice the motor. So I just do my own thing, happy when I improve and don't come in last.

Vonats would be great just to see these cars all on track. That said, I'd love if it was all silver can.

I can appreciate tamiyadan's saltiness. It is refreshing. I am not kidding.

I mark my years with VONAT misses. It's already time for another one??!! Many "props" and well wishes to those who manage to get there.
Hope you're doin' something fun.
