Default TCS racing tips and car choices

I would like to get some TCS racing tips like what cars are best for each class and whats needed for each car in the class's they run. plus just general TCS talk can be done here as well.


These are what i was thinking if running this year

GT1 my TRF415
GT2 getting a TB02R or TA04R (undesided)
Mini getting a M03L


Any TCS type tips like motor tuning , setups things like that would be good to post here.

I was looking for a little more specifics as everyone has an idea of how to set up there car for them self, but alot of people racing the TCS here will have a set up and it would be nice to try them the book and/or how to tune isnt the part I am asking about. as well as other things like what parts they changed to the cars to make them better to race. a mini out of the box isnt a good racer i am sure

As for the motor one i should have been a little more specific as to tuning the silver can tamiya for mini class. i have heard of motors pulling .7 amps and some people have had motors tuned or what ever pull all the way up to 2 amps and more. I would like to know what they have done to them as any TCS legal tip would be great .

1. I believe you can only register for two classes in a TCS event, I could be wrong.

2. the 415 and EVOIV should be dominant in GT1
3. I plan on running my TB02 in GT2, but the TAO4R is tough to beat, a lot depends on if you like belt or shaft.

What do you want to know really. if you want specific answers ask specific questions.
