So, my 540-sizzle-can powered TA TC5 is ready to run in Scale Spec on Saturday, except for a “realistic, scale body.” With the family schedule this week there’s no way I’ll have a “realistic, scale body” ready in time. I’ve got an extra touring car body but those are against the Scale Spec rules.

Was wondering if anybody has an extra “realistic, scale” and preferably well-loved body in their spares pile that I could borrow or buy? I'd be happy to pay a fair price and grateful for any help.

Bill Swadener

(My contingency plan is: Shamelessly beg Saturday a.m. for one-time-only authorization to run the car in Scale Spec with a touring car body but take the wing off).

Default scale spec body

I've got a used Camaro body and wheels that you can have. The body was mounted on a Tamiya chassis so you'll have to make new holes for your TC5. Let me know if you want them and I'll bring them Saturday. Lem

Lem, we need to have a talk about your avatar. That just hurts my brain.

I have a regular weight LTC-R I don't need. NIP $15

Won't be at the hangar this Saturday. I can meet up local to Lake Stevens/Everett. Otherwise I'll have it with me at the Jan. 8th or 12th races.

Question?

I don't understand what you mean by this; are you meaning we keep track records per calendar year OR is this foretelling a change to the track at the end of the year?

I think they're planning a track layout change.

Default Good-Bye Thunderdome

This is the final race on the current layout. Then it's good-bye Thunderdome (yes, a total geek, I name the layouts.) It's been a good course all year. But, all things must pass. The ultimate course records will be posted to the website for as long as it's around.

I've scheduled a track maintenance/rebuild day for Sunday, January 2. Come join us if you're able. It will be a shorter work day than last year when we built the whole new track, but there is work to be done all the same.
