I'm still fairly competitive at the local level with a TC3. I've thought about upgrading to a TC4 club racer many times but just haven't found the need.

Oh ok thanks

Here's my contribution to racing USGT. I still need to do one more thing before I race it.

Out of all the tire options, what is a decent tire combo for running on carpet these days?

I had a chance to race this body and it is not a body I would recomend it has great rear grip but it lacks front downforce it has a push mid corner out. It has turn in grip but my Mercedes CLK was Faster by .2 but that body is hard to find NSX bodies are getting hard to find You guy's bought them all out.
So what body to run? I like Audi R8 but it wears the the front spliter out too quickly for me. Any other suggestions?

Just curious, but did you buy them new? Everyone in our local club has been searching for them with no luck. Everyone is sold out waiting for (hoping) Hobbico will restock them soon.

Bought them new from proshophobbies.com. All I did was internet search.
