That's what 30 years in the hobby will do to you.

That and the Engineer in me just doesn't quit.

I was going to measure the dourometer today, but the inspection department has "missplaced" the tester!! LOL hopefully this week though.

Interesting. I'm curious. How many of the entries were 104's? I know Bob Oakes, Bill Miller, and myself were running 103's. Joey Damore had a 104 but I'm not sure who else. Anybody do a survey by chance?

Well, as of at least yesterday, the 15th anniversary car is now considered discontinued on the Tamiya USA site.... that didnt take long....

I just hope that parts are still available from Tamiya for TCS racing. The good thing i see, is that the front end, diff, rear pod brackets (?), front/rear wings all fit from the F104. Only downside is tires, both foam and rubber arent in good quantities for the F104...

To all my Friendly Illinois Bretheren, I talked with Scotty tonight and he is planning on heavy promotion of F-1's for the Trackside Saturday Road Course program starting this fall.

See you guys soon.

BTW, you all missed an awesum TCS North American Finals last weekend. F-1 was the second largest class. Maybe next year we can get a large Midwest presence and do some damage.

Ok boys and girls as promised here are the shore A ratings for the following tires;

1) Stock kit tires from the F103 aniv. kit front 20 reat 12.
2) New premounts front 25 rear 15.
The kit tires have been used and treated so i beleive that the number will probably matst the premounts if they were now.
3) HBR OP134 soft front 15
4) HBR OP139 soft rear 18.

I didn't pick up the HBR med's so I ahve no results.

Hope this helps a little.
