That's the key at Tamiya, nail the Esses and you'll be rewarded at the straightway. I remember watching Rod C. do some double steering to change his apex approach to the Esses during the third A-main, and it impressed a lot of the Invite drivers.

What a fun weekend many thanks to Fred, Mike Reedy, Scotty, and Tamiya America for having yet another world class event. I hope we have another one next year.

I'm going to expand on this...and thanks for the quick reply DOTMAN. Where do the pros get their bodies done? Do some do it themselves? Do you know any websites I could go to?

I think that I am moving to Cali soon. You guys get all the cool races. I wish that all TC was rubber tire only. I am tired of truing foam all the time.

He's very reasonable. Cheaper than most I think, but you'll have to work that our with Frank. I gave him a lot of bodies so I got a little bit of a volume discount

I think Frank did a bunch of the bodies out there. His work is top notch--you should see the headlights and grills, they are painted too.

Is this rumor true:

Somebody of the non Team Orion V2 racers bought that weekend a V2 motor and tried the endbell on his own motor?

It is partially true. Some motor manufacturers bought V2 motors before the race and used the motors (with their own armatures) during the race.

The endbell is not available in the US as a separate unit, but should be in the next 3 months.
