Default TCS for 2011

Looks like spec tires and brushless systems in 2011.

Tamiya Championship Series Season Informantion

News and updates
TCS 2011 Season News!
The Tamiya Championship Series will begin its 17th season in 2011, which is coming up right around the corner. The 2011 rules and regulations have been updated to reflect new product releases, market feedback and market conditions.

The most popular class of 2010 was Mini followed by F-1, GT-3, GT-2, Spec, GT-1 and Rally. Based on attendance, feedback and host site amenities, the TCS class structure has been adjusted to adapt to current conditions.

2011 season classes:


Mini
F-1 Rubber
F-1 Foam
FWD
GT-2
GT-1
Spec
Rally
Mini Rally
4WD Buggy
2WD Buggy

Note: Not all of the classes will be run at every regional event. The classes available for each TCS regional event will be made known at the online registration page for each respective event.

The 2011 TCS North America Finals classes will include: Mini, F-1 Rubber, FWD, GT-2, GT-1 and Spec.

New for 2011:

Due to current trends in on-road racing, the TCS series will adapt a single brand brushless speed control and motor solution for the “touring car” classes. This will affect GT-1, GT-2 and FWD. This solution will be in place for a minimum of two seasons, including the TCS North American Finals, with the option of a third season. The solution we are implementing will be “locked in” and the investment will be kept to a minimum to the participants. The same speed control and motor you buy for the 2011 season will be used at a minimum for two complete seasons.

Pre-mount tires will be used for Mini, FWD, GT-1 and GT-2 for all regional races. See rules for exact details about carpet track exemptions.

The “spec” brushless speed control and motor will be the “SENSORED” type.

Preview rules set: http://www.tamiyausa.com/articles/ln...rules%20V2.pdf

No brushless in the Mini

Quote from TCS

"Due to current trends in on-road racing, the TCS series will use limited brands and types of brushless speed controls and motors for the GT-1 “touring car” class. The brushless motor and ESC (Electronic Speed Control) rules will affect GT-1 only. GT-2, FWD, Mini, Novice Spec GT and F-1 will stick with the 540-J Johnson motor solution."
