Nope, i'd come if I could get a hotel, but I can't. I'm focusing on my Xray now.. But we still have a 416X.

syndr0me, I hope you guys reconsider coming to the Timezone Grand Prix! This is the year that its going to be put on the map. We will make sure you guys have fun as well I don't feel like being the only Tamiya on the track other then my buddies Evo 5MS...

Default I only race one class...

and that's VTA. Only racing one class so I don't mind spending the money and it's slow enough I don't hit anything. Not worrried in VTA. Are there any great setups out there? I'ven been wanting to try a Tamiya, but still waiting to see the new Xray frist.

For VTA, perhaps a TA05v2 would be a better choice.

Do they make 6 degree c-hubs for the 416? If so who sells them?

They do not but you can make the HPI/Hot Bodies ones work with a little work. Never have myself but have seen a few that have...

What kind of setups are you guys running for foam on carpet? Got a meet on this weekend, will be fairly low bite carpet using nitro foams and no additive allowed. Oz is a strange place for carpet racing
