Default Tamiya TCS 2004

Our local track Hobbytown Newark California is hosting the first of a series of TCS races. Just wondering who's coming from out of town. What are you guys running and setups? Lots of TB-02 for sure. I myself will be running GT1[414m] and Mini[mo3L].Mini this year is going to be big here in Northern California.Can't wait.....

Cool, we should start our own thread, overseas p'noys running r/c.

I would definitely come if I was in the states, here we have to qualify and go to our own Canadian TCS finals to qualify in the NW TCS. But it's all in good intention, just look at Martin Crisp.

Yes bro, it still counts!

I'm full blooded. We did start running race with jeepnys but found that it would lean too much in the corner have you ever seen the actual jeepneys fly in the Phil! they do race ya know!

I've been to the bay area several times on business and almost got lost going into the Jolibee place

Anyways, good luck to you guys in your TCS

Default Classes...

the TAOB Racing team (me, eeyan, izzyracer and dyaz21) will be running GT1 (mostly evo III blue converted and surikarns) and GT2 with our super twitchy 04-SS. dyaz21 will run a normal wheelbase 04.

im still undecided.. its a long drive and i have work the next day at 5am! its 51% no go right now.. and 49% go

if i can sell my barracuda R2.. THEN ill go!
