Sorry,no website of track pics.

If you southern boys get cold,I suggest you bring warm clothing.It's been in the mid 50's here lately during the day.If its clear it may reach the low 60's but dont count on it.

Had our first race of the season today to shake the cobwebs out.We will be running next weekend on saturday also as a warm up.All the classes will be interesting to watch.Very close racing today.Especially in GT2 and F201.See you next sunday!

I know this has been a question in the past, but I forgot the answer.
Is it legal to run the TAO4 front hub carriers with the camber link ears cut off on the EVO3?
Thanks!

Nope! you have to keep the ears even though you are not using it. I got burned for that exact situation.

Good luck to all of the Newark racers. I can't go due to a death in the family.
Burial is the same day.

You should be able to use these in GT1, I mean you're just lightening the chassis, and that is legal...

sigh, the days of the ta03 were so much easier and simpler....

Default Great racing weekend

Let me see...An adict racer really in the know could race at Gilroy on Friday night, Stockton on Saturday and TCS in Newark on Sunday.

That would be a full weekend of great racing.

Will be checking at TCS to see who actually did it...

Actually Gary,

They fround on that one. The mount was supposed to have the inner hole used, and did not allow at nats two years ago on the 414, and I believe still to be true. That mount was not designed for use with the ball stud / king pin.

I was being facisious (sp) Kevin, and I know that was kinda shitty. I'm still against some of the things being allowed, so that was just a shot.

Thanks!
Last TAMIYA Nationals I cut a lot of plastic parts and Fred said that is was okay because it is chassis lighting(GT1). The tech guys said I cannot race it like that so I took it to Fred. They might have changed the rules a bit now.

Talking

How about portable heaters next year? Trinity tire warmers were seen hanging on ears.

Hats off to everyone for keeping their kewl under cold conditions. Thanks Hobby Town.

Might just have to get one of them F201s...
