# VTRAC Movements Explained

Published:

Last Edited: August 26, 2005, 9:39 am

Converting digits to VTRACS

Digits 0 and 5 = VTRAC 1
Digits 1 and 6 = VTRAC 2
Digits 2 and 7 = VTRAC 3
Digits 3 and 8 = VTRAC 4
Digits 4 and 9 = VTRAC 5

The idea is to convert 10 digits down to 5 or 5 VTRACS.

Lets take a real example from Michigan Pick 3 Evening drawing on 8/25/05.

The Pick 3 was 2 5 7
Using the chart above you convert the digits drawn to VTRACS
Digit 2 = VTRAC 3
Digit 5 = VTRAC 1
Digit 7 = VTRAC 3
So your new VTRAC combination is 3 1 3

VTRAC MOVEMENTS

Movements simply put are the differences between 2 drawings by position.
Using the example from Michigan Pick 3
The last VTRAC was 3 1 3 (or digit combination 2 5 7) 8/25/05
The previous evening drawing on 8/24/05 was digit combination 9 7 9 convert to VTRAC and you have 5 3 5.
To calculate the MOVEMENT
P1    P2  P3
8/25/05  VTRAC  3    1    3    (Digit combination 2 5 7)
8/24/05  VTRAC  5    3    5    (Digit combination 9 7 9)

Look at P1 or Position 1.  The difference between 3 and 5 = 2 or movement of 2
Look at P2 or Position 2.  The difference between 1 and 3 = 2 or movement of 2
Look at P3 or Position 3.  The difference between 3 and 5 = 2 or movement of 2

Lets take another drawing from 8/23/05

8/24/05  VTRAC  5    3    5    (Digit combination 9 7 9)
8/23/05  VTRAC  4    1    5    (Digit combination 3 0 4)

Look at P1 or Position 1.  The difference between 5 and 4 = 1 or movement of 1
Look at P2 or Position 2.  The difference between 3 and 1 = 2 or movement of 2
Look at P3 or Position 3.  The difference between 5 and 5 = 0 or movement of 0

Possible Movements of VTRACS
1      2      3    4    5
VTRAC 1 can have a movement of:  0,    +1,  +2,  +3,  +4
VTRAC 2 can have a movement of:  -1,    0,  +1,  +2,  +3
VTRAC 3 can have a movement of:  -2,    -1,    0,  +1,  +2
VTRAC 4 can have a movement of:  -3,    -2,    -1,    0,  +1
VTRAC 5 can have a movement of:  -4,    -3,    -2,  -1,    0

Notice that each VTRAC can move up, down or stay the same from drawing to drawing.
The key is to track these movements by Position (Position 1 through Position 3).

Using the example from above:

P1  P2  P3
8/25/05  VTRAC  3    1    3    (Digit combination 2 5 7)
8/24/05  VTRAC  5    3    5    (Digit combination 9 7 9)

Look at P1 or Position 1.  The difference between 3 and 5 = 2 or movement of -2
Look at P2 or Position 2.  The difference between 1 and 3 = 2 or movement of -2
Look at P3 or Position 3.  The difference between 3 and 5 = 2 or movement of -2

Lets take another drawing from 8/23/05

8/24/05  VTRAC  5    3    5    (Digit combination 9 7 9)
8/23/05  VTRAC  4    1    5    (Digit combination 3 0 4)

Look at P1 or Position 1.  The difference between 5 and 4 = 1 or movement of  +1
Look at P2 or Position 2.  The difference between 3 and 1 = 2 or movement of  +2
Look at P3 or Position 3.  The difference between 5 and 5 = 0 or movement of    0

The next step is to create a history of past drawings so you can see what the BEST movements are for each VTRAC 1 through 5 at Positions 1, 2, and 3.

The key is to use the correct number of past drawings.
There are a total of 125 VTRAC combinations.
There are a total of 35-boxed VTRAC combinations.
The question is how many past drawings do you use?
My opinion is to use 125 past drawings.  You can use your own number of past drawings.
Keep in mind that movements do change.  You can look at increments of past drawings to see this happening.

Taking the example from above:

The last drawing for Michigan on 8/25/05 was 257 or VTRAC 313

Now you need to look at each position to find the TOP movements.

Position 1 you see VTRAC 3

Now you need to look at your past history of each time a VTRAC 3 was drawn and what the TOP movement(s) for VTRAC 3 in Position 1.  Using the chart from above you see that VTRAC 3 can MOVE  -2,  -1,  0, +1, +2.  What were saying is VTRAC 3 can move or possible be picked in the next drawing as a VTRAC 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.  So this is where we want to find the TOP movement(s).  For example: We look at our past history of 125 past drawings (or whatever number of past drawings you want to use) and determine that VTRAC 3 in Position 1 HIT a total of 25 times.  Out of the 25 times, VTRAC 3 in Position 1 was drawn it MOVED (–2) a total of 7 times, (-1) a total of  5 times, (0) a total of 5 times,  (+1) a total of 4 times, (+2) a total of  4 times.
We see that the TOP movement for VTRAC 3 is (-2) or VTRAC 1.  So our next drawing we would use VTRAC 1 or digits 0 and 5 in Position 1.

Next you would do the same thing for Position 2 and Position 3.  So you want to look at VTRAC 1 in Position 2 and VTRAC 3 in Position 3 and determine the TOP movement for VTRAC 1 and VTRAC 3.
