I do know what might not be legal though, although its hard to tell from the angle of the pictures, you may want to look at the wing height. The top of the wing cannot be above the roofline of the body. If so, it will be easier to deal with now than on race day.

Hi Alex
I thought if you buy any Tamiya Bodies that come with the wing s/b legal..

Hi Franco.
You are supposed to run the wings that come with the body and the wing is to be no higher than the roofline of the body since we use ROAR rules. I don't know if there are bodies that don't meet this rule out there.

Happy Holidays!

yup, sometimes its just a bad body. I think we've all had something that just didn't work well, for whatever reason.

Happy Holidays!

I've been in touch with them and they'll be back. They appreciate the volunteer time that goes into it and are happy for the opportunity to try out the hobby.

Just show up and I'll get you set up with a loaner car. We have TT-01s with brushed motors so they are very novice friendly. When you get to the track ask for Adam, that'd be me :-)

Are you thinking of coming out this Saturday?

This Saturday is a little special in that we're changing the track layout. We'll be building the new track from noon to 4pm, with practice starting at 5pm and first qualifier going off at 6pm. If you would like to race it would be a good idea to get there before practice starts, that way you can grab a pit spot and get to know your car. Or, if you have extra time, come and help us build the track
