With it being a Winter Series week, it may short a few for Sunday racing. Normally we'd probably see 4-6 on a normal Wednesday.

My mini went brushless yesterday, let's get em out tonight! I will of course be pulling up the rear in vta as well. Switching from a gtb to a gtb 2 will put me in the amain for sure right?

I got under 16s for the first time in vta tonight :-)
Had a blast running 17.5 mini. Tamiya lists 17.5 mini pro as a class, will that happen here during tcs? My m-03 turns great, but it is a little twitchy, any hints on making it more driveable?

Looking at the new rules, the Mini Pro class will be 21.5 for the upcoming TCS series.

How much toe out are you running?

Try adding some toe out to it and that should help with the stability. I run quite a bit of toe out on my M-05.
