I do have a mini I was planning to run as well. I got a new Suzuki Swift kit I want to run. I have loaded it up already. The new suspension is really nice too if you haven't seen one yet.
GT1 would be a good consideration for you because after TCS.. you still have a car that is very competitive at any track you go to. GT2 might be a better fit speed wise (not sure what motors you run) and equipment wise since a stock motor wont eat up tires or batteries as fast as a 19T.
GT3 is just plain fun!
BUT... running GT2 and GT3 will hinder you to only racing that particular chassis for TCS. its pretty hard to go to socal and run stock with a TB-02 or with a TA05. its possible.. but you'd be more competitive with an MSX.
Mini is also very popular at Socal.... lots of things to consider. Good luck!
