Anything that says Tech Racing on the header card is good stuff!

I use those turnbuckles myself but havent used the screw set I must say.

And thanks for the praise too! And also to all the other people who've visited our site and sent me emails as well.

BTW the 200+ entries was for the one day TA regional last year hence the 2 day schedule this year. (mains were run in the dark)

I think the TCS Nationals had less than 130 racers

keep the fingers crossed for additional races!

I saw the rally guy had hinge pins with e-clips insted of the kit type self tapping hinge pins. Where can I get these and are the TCS legal?

His front shocks were also more laid down. My M03M Swift chassis put them very vertical. It looks like his lower arms are diffrent than mine.

I like how he replaced the brass steering arm pivot balls with the blue alloy 415 pivot balls and spacers. He raised the pivot ball to get rid of the huge bump toe in you get with the kit parts.

All in all a very nicely though out Mini.

I'm noticing that a lot of people are getting the new mo3m instead from previous pages. Is it because its new or is it really much better in handling? One TAC racer told me that majority of the winners in recent races were mostly mo3m.

Reasons Why .....

A - Its the newest, and people always want the latest
B - The Swift shell is modern, not all people like Minis (fools)
C - The M03M has subtle upgrades (front suspension and rear suspension) which save you money and make the car bulletproof without having to go out and buy extra gear.

SIMPLE!

I bought 03M because that's what the local store had on the shelf.
Oh, and I hate Minis.
I guess you either love em or hate em. I'm a mechanic to trade, and had the mispleasure of trying to work on too many of them. THose of you who have also worked on them will know what I mean.

How was your finish? Were you in the top A group?

That would be really slow but I bet that 4 cell would work really well with a modern 27T or 19T motor.

The major difference betwen the Miata/Alfa and the Beetle.
Miata is a M04m the Bettle is a M04L (it uses the chassis spacer.) I think that is really all, maybe the tires are different compounds between the kits.
Basically is ts a BMW M Roadster or Honda S2000 with Mini size tires instead of sedan tires.

This just goes to prove that the Tamiya Championship Series and World?s is a great stepping-stone for world-class drivers in the international level. Now, since both Rheinard and Chaidisuriya both showed driving prowess in the Mini Class, we have to wonder where past our past American Mini Class National winners are up to. Dan Garber, Troy Crabtree, David Weir and Raymond Flores have all been North America Mini Sports National Champions. What are they up to and where are my future world champions? Well, Dan Garber is currently driving Tamiya cars in the Washington state area as a Tamiya America supported driver. Troy Crabtree is looking for another National title so he can make his way to the Tamiya World Championships, as is David Weir. Raymond Flores discovered college and girls after winning the Mini Tamiya World title in 1999. There is one thing Raymond can say. He beat the current IFMAR World Champ at the 1999 Tamiya Worlds. See if you can pick out a twelve year old Marc Rheinard in our picture gallery.
I've been busy tutoring my almost 15 year old son in the ways of Mini. The Force is now with him, as he is routinely beating Dad in weekly Mini racing. The Force has now transformed him - no blood in those veins, just ice water now. I'll probably now be just a "master", training the young knight. I suspect that if a Weir returns to the Nationals podium it may be him, not me!
