Btw I'm not demanding it just stating the need. If y'all were willing to do something, I'd come.
I know what you're talking about. I'll see what we can do. Already have some ideas in mind.

We have to talk about this first week of December scheduling. It doesn't mesh well with my job!

Yea, there are so many races I don't want to conflict with or be too close to. Hard to get a good one

Any chance you guys would consider a novice class (car and motor type TBD) and or a TCS Mini Cooper class. Really would be cool to start and see an option for kids and or newbies at as many races as possible. Given enough time, once rules are establish, people can prepare. Doesn't have to be TCS specific but something dedicated to a "true" novice level would be nice.

Looking forward to attending. I'm marking down the dates... hopefully the kids don't have a sports event.

I'm sure they are trying to keep the program as lean as possible to get people back to work on Monday morning.

Thanks Robbie. I will look into getting some plane tickets once you guys lock things down.


If you are going to Nats, you'll see what N-Control did for me. It works well but on yours, the draw bridge type seems like a better fit. I will take pics at Banana if I go this weekend.

This would be cool as well, although 95% of the guys running Euro truck at the Tamiya race are highly experienced.

I agree, get it done quickly ... but then why have two separate classes for TC and 1/12th? Pro vs. sportsman? I'm just looking for dedicated novice class... so long as the "sportsman" understand there will be novices in their class, I'm cool with it.

I agree it would be great to have something for the future stars of rc, but I do also need to be mindful that some folks do have flights or long drives home on Sunday. Not saying no, just not sure how to work it in and make it worthwhile for the parents. Also not sure of the interest level - I think we could probably get 2 or 3 kids out there just from local support

Yea I think what I had in mind came from watching the Full Throttle Champs at Banana actually. That is probably our best bet. Pics would be great!
