Yes. You can plug in your numbers here:
Try plugging in your numbers for before your first VBAC, and then put in your current stats. I'm guessing your probability of success on a subsequent VBAC will be at least 95% (that's about what they were when I put mine in most recently), compared to more like 70% for a first VBAC.
FYI, here's a pretty nice commentary on that particular calculator: http://givingbirthwithconfidence.org/2-2/a-womans-guide-to-vbac/vbac-success-rates-and-prediction-models-understanding-your-chances-of-important-outcomes/

Yes, with each vbac you have your chances of having another are much greater. Info on this at http://www.ican-online.org
And ICAN has a brochure on this topic is shows a chart of this. http://www.ican-online.org/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=167&zenid=c511c216e41b92bebfaac2c034b19773
