Outlawing them makes sense because you don't need them. Steel bearings are maintenance free as well. I'm just avoiding 4 pages of crying over something that is not a big deal anyway.

As far as the car, that was NEVER under consideration. If you can run a $500 Tamiya or Xray, what's the point?

why outlaw something that makes no difference?

Outlaw things that provide unfair advantages. . .


Do we outlaw lighter-gauge bodies with barely opaque paint jobs because they weigh less? ROFL

I've been to R/Car recently for the Midwest Hurricane Series event and had an absolute blast at this facility. Even though my racing experience was undesirable it was still fun. The food is very reasonable and good! A lot of people were raving over the bread sticks

A small tip for the out of towners. If you own a TC3 or any Tamiya car, STOCK UP ahead of time! TC4 parts are available but not everything is available. If anything, call the track before you head out to see what they currently have for the chassis you own.

Other then that, great place, big track and great people that run the place.
