If. TeamC makes an aluminum chassis, I might reconsider.
not really a few years ago to run high grip carpet alot of guys just ran a thicker top deck or 2 decks on top of each other (that's what i did with the old MI3.5) until recently no one used an aluminum chassis for a TC.

I run two of them on the black carpet and see no problem with the cf chasis.

Dustin I would love to do it. I'm already promoting the TC10 and TR10 without sponsorship because they are really a good car to race with.

Since you're not offering any 12th scale, what about F1 or World GT-R?

Why would I drive/promote an inferior car that needs a Band-Aid fix, to be competitive?

Thumbs up

I run asphalt during the summer, my guess is the tc10 would do as well as any car out there. The main problem is the competition is top notch and unless there was real support, guys like me are better off just running what works since as a privateer you're not limited. Hard to imagine team c would want to commit enough to have drivers switch from an xray, awesomatix, schumacher, etc. No knock on team C as their products are great, I'd run the bejeezus out of a tc10 but anyone can offer a discount......actual support is another game entirely.

If cynicism were edible I could eat for a week off of this thread.

Default TA10?

Didn't know a TA10 existed. Is the aluminum chassis available to buy seperately?
