I have only had the pleasure of running in Nashville once...earlier this year at the Thunder Jam (Snowbirds warmup race). Only had 3 heats of VTA, and qualified for the B. I was running in 3rd/4th/5th with two of the local guys and we were having a blast. The racing was close, and there were good natured comments and smiles on the drivers stand. Came around the corner in front of the stand and my car went left, and my front wheel went right. Someone grabbed it, put it back on, and got me back out. Several laps down, I was still "racing" with the 2 guys now in 3rd and 4th. I finished last in the B, and it was hands down one of the most fun races I have ever had.

You don't need to be in the A, have the fastest car, or win your main, to have fun. I look forward to another great experience like that this weekend.

Thank you in advance for all the time and effort everyone has put to make this event happen!

No idea where I will be pitting, but if anyone needs anything, help, advice, to borrow a tool, or just to chat, feel free to come find me. We are going to be there starting Friday morning.

As far as the TC tire. I think I remember it being the jaco blue correct? Do we need to purchase them at the race or can we use ones we have.

It is Jaco Blue for sure and typically at a bigger race they make you buy your own...but I'll let Myron or Dirla jump in for exacts on purchase.

Hey Ryan, I was told that if you bring Jaco Blues with you to Nashville then they have to be BNIB. That's the only way they can be tech'ed at Nashville. Used tires cannot be tech'ed.

They are pre-mounted rubber tires for touring cars.

Hi Guys! We Asheville guys are headed up in the morning.
so I was neatly packing up all my gear by stuffing it into tiny little boxes when I noticed the rear shock tower is cracked. Since I've now inventoried every screw and part I own, I do not have a spare tower.
Does anyone... I mean anyone have a spare AE TC5 rear shock tower that I can beg for? I will be there before noon Fri.

Man, I'm glad to hear that! I figured my main purpose this weekend is to help pay for everyone else's trophies. That, and to give you another car to pass.

If the Jaco Blues are not available, then the TC cars should race with VTA tires. After all it is the USVTA Southern Nationals.

i have a Text in with Joe at Hot Shot RC for both shock tower and Jaco Blues. We will be up there earlyish tomorrow morning. Will update once I have an answer.

Please if you need any XRAY, Associated, Sakura, Serpent or CRC parts contact Joe today at 770-427-3770 and we will be happy to bring along.

He also has a nice stock of 1/12 tires, I want to say slightly more than a hand full of Jaco Blues, good number of all novak SCs, and a verity of 21.5 motors for you USGT guys.
