Default Could you teach me how to cheat at TCS race ?

You know what is TCS race : Tamiya Championship Series

You know the rules : Tamiya cars only, Tamiya Hop Up Options only, Tamiya parts only, Johnson/Mabuchi RS540 motor only (except GT1 and GT2 class), No re-engineering parts, No parts lightening, No extreme/weird modification, but yet TCS gives you freedom choices of electronics equipments.

How to cheat ? especially the gawd dammn slow 540 motor

But, that defeats the purpose of the race.....

If you want to go faster run MOD.

honestly, what do you gain by cheating?

To me is seems if you didn't have the skill to beat them fair and square, why would you feel proud about winning something that you didn't deserve?

Besides, most of the things you can do to the vehicle and motor to cheat won't mean squat if you can drive the thing.

Best bet is to drive better.

If you cheat at any form of racing, you had better win. Otherwise, it means that you really suck if you cheat and still lose.

The TCS program has been a great low cost (something this hobby needs more of) way to go racing. Granted, there are classes that I would not be interested in, but then again there is a lot to like.

Tamiya has been doing a great service for this sport...no entry fee, prizes for everyone, medals, a chance to go to Nationals or maybe even worlds in Japan...

Practice your butt off within the rules, you might be surprised on how good you might get.

Work on your driving so you won't need to.

you do realize that by starting a thread like this, if you do happen to run an event and do well, people are going to think you are cheating, even if you aren't. Good job on bringing the magnifying lens over you though.

And your complaint on the 540 motor....it's the same for everyone.

I really hope this thread was posted as a joke. Think about it. A cheater is nothing more than a loser who realizes he's a loser and knows he always will be a loser, so he decides to cheat in order to "win". But the problem is, he didn't really win anything because he cheated, so in the end he is still a loser!

And BTW, probably the worst race you could possibly choose to cheat at is the TCS. Like Rugrat already said, Tamiya has done the R/C community a great service by providing the TCS. If you're going to cheat, stay away from from the TCS. In fact, stay away from R/C racing altogether.

OMG..... I'm so sorry my question is rather bad or stupid jokes. I should have asked " Could you teach me how to win at TCS race ? "

Moderators, could you change the subject at the front page to
" Could you teach me how to win at TCS race ? " Thanks Sir, I mean this new name should get better positive response.

So sorry guys..... btw, no, I don't cheat at TCS race I'm currently third podium for two consecutive race in 2004. Mini Cooper class though

Learn to drive is the best way to cheat . Your hidden skill will show up on the race track and not underneath that large belly you have that is holding up your pants. I won't tell anyone. I've just read the TCS rules and it doesn't say anything about driving alot to learn how.
I race all the time with other car drivers and they all use different motors and cars. If you keep your TCS set up, you will be come a better driver with all the items that are legal.
