I'll definitely run the F1 car in this. And hopefully a second class which most likely will be GT3.

What are all the classes for this? I know I'm going to pick up a Tamiya touring car chassis before this race. But trying to decide which motor to get. GT2 is the one that is 17.5 and it's run on Wed nights also, right? Or is it GT1 with 13.5? Thanks

Thanks Jim, that clears things up! I want to make sure that whatever I get is usable for Wed nights. So I'll probably just stick with GT3.

Hello, This is Jeff with the dee and mee's on road track in Topeka. Myself and my son are planning to come up for the tcs race in February. We will be running F1 class just would like to have some advice on tires to use. We have hard, medium and soft compound rubbers. Or should we use foams, if so what compound. Thanks for any help, JEFF and Brett.
