Then the pink/double pink's came out and again came 1 run tires. Then back to rubber with limited sets. Now, TC has to glue tires with precision or your done before you start.
The new foam class will take into consideration everything we have learned in the many years of TC racing. Like limit sets, hard compound to negate truing for faster times, etc.
In other words, might bring more racers back into TC. I know I and about 10-15 others just in my area that quit TC when they went back to rubber tires. Also, the spec tires and limited sets for 12th scale have helped that class and we think that would help TC as well.

I really enjoyed this race. You get national-caliber competition but with a more laid-back atmosphere. Only problem was feeding 60+ racers fried chicken dinner with only 2 bathrooms! Ha!

GREAT TYME WOW what a great event, awesome atmosphere and super friendly Prolevel RC people. This event was well represented as far as competition goes, many National, Regional and even a World Champion was in attendance to say the least. If you missed this event, then you missed a great show. Congrats to all the winners and to EVERYONE that attended and made this event go really smooth.

On another note, THANKS for the food. That's really the only reason I attend these races...............LOL
