F1 racing is sort of going on here in the LA area. Usually it picks up when Speedtech RC starts up the series.

I don't know what TAC is but in general I have found that for carpet the cars works best with a low ride height, wide track, lots of camber ( 3-4deg) and only 1-2mm of uptravel.

I hope this gets you started.

I thought I saw you in Portland. But wasn't sure since I haven't seen you since last year TCS nats. Too bad you can't make it down this year, it's a new motor to learn again.

Not quite Neil... Our TAC rules are patterned closer to the Tamiya Eurocup rules... but for the M-chassis class which we revived here this year, i patterned the M-chassis rules to the TCS rules...
