I was pretty happy with the TP36 tyres, I did try TP36 front Sweep 33 rear Sunday morning but that was a disaster as the rear had zero grip. Limped around for a single lap just to sneak on the points board before pulling it off the track.
Sorry about the confusion!

Yeah, I stuck with TP36s on the rear for all of Sunday.

Those M03/05 shells that Canadian dude is selling are really interesting, thanks Tony!

I always ran a long wheelbase. Trying a medium wheelbase this weekend at the Tamiya track. Which body (225mm)!is preffered for TCS racing? Is it the Swift?

Swift seems to be it, but you'll have to make sure it is still legal...

Does anyone have an unused sheet of the 2006 Mini Cooper decals? I'm just looking for a high res scan or screen shot of the headlights. I can recreate them, just need ones that are not applied or scuffed up.

Thanks

Swift has been the go to for years but front tire wear affects the handling at some point. A few of us have switched over to the CRX with good results.

That's good to hear I'm a Honda guy and having a CRX is perfect

You can still find the crx. But the lightweight crx is near impossible.
