Hello

Looking to travel to the race from Manitoba and would like clarification on the WCICS rules for CTA. Are the Protoform bodies and tires legal? More specifically the following:
  • 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 - Part No. 1562-40
  • PROTOform VTA Front Tires (26mm) Mounted - Part No. 10140-17
  • PROTOform VTA Rear Tires (31mm) Mounted - Part No. 10139-17
Your confirmation would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Default Quick shout out!!!

Just wanted to let everyone know be ready for a great weekend! Big shout out to JAMES RYAN for I don't know how many countless hours of volunteer work from track build to putting the letter writing campaign to get sponsors to send us stuff.

Here is a preview of the 'almost finished' track. Blue (I think) felt islands to still be installed:






In addition here are some donated prizes to be won:





And door prizes:



Ö..there's more I just don't have pictures yet.....and other prizes are coming from Protoform, SXT, Action Hobby, GripWorks RC, PM Hobbycraft, Artic Truck and Service.

Oh and Jo Paint with these awesome decals and then some:



Remember everone gets a free bottle of SXT and brake cleaner!

And I was also suppose to point out that CANTEEN IS OPEN FOOD Friday till Sunday. Please support them if you can.

See you all this weekend!
