but it is interesting to try....is it expensive???

Default mo4

I just received my Alfa mo4 yesterday from horizon, and have all the hop ups for a TCS mini. Normally I woulld be extremely excited about the build but with the TCS up in the air with the enivetable move or closing of Tamiya along with the close of track, the Alfa may stay in the box unbuilt. I probably can race it at Bending Corners or SoCal if there are enough for a mini class.

Tamiya is closing/moving?!


I can't believe that... especially with that awesome track.... maybe if they close the building they'll lease out or sell the track to someone else to keep it open... maybe if they do that, it'll open to other cars other than Tamiya

I'm near BCR.. I plan on racing 12th scale there... I also have a M02 mini that I might take out of retirement to hang with you at BCR or SCR.... now that I have a real Mini I should paint up a new matching body...

They announced at TCS Seattle that they are moving. They said nothing was in stone about the track or it's availability. They did state that they could be building a new track at the new facility.

Cause a one way rolls through the corners, a spool slides through the corner.

Slides is always better for me .....
And because we talk about these part, so it's not TCS legal for sure....
And because it's not TCS legal, we can modify the body a bit by giving a more downforce (depend on chassis M03 or M04) to avoid too much slide .....

I still wonder what this part really is .... is it lockable or not ?
Tony, have you any idea ? Got this part on your hand now ?

Default M-chassis suspension arm

Tony,

I just order this part. Quite nice, but don;t know about durability ...
You got it already ? What do you think ?

If it's nylon-based material, I will dies them to blue color ....

You wont be able to dye them I'm afraid, you're stuck with the black. But they're Tech so the quality will be good, all Tech stuff is..

They wont make any difference to your car but you'll win the bling war! And isnt that all that matters.....
