Also, in Seattle there are a few who run the car that would help as well.

The most supported and ran car locally is the VBC D06, 2nd would be the Xray T4. TZ2 carries parts for the VBC and some for the Xray.

Changing my 2nd gear and working on my GT for Sunday! I cannot wait. I have not raced it since last years TZGP. I might try to get the nitro sedan going as well.

Thx Troy, is the learning curve steep coming from a WGT car on carpet to an outdoor touring car? You guys at TZII really helped me get going with WGT, it was just always a small class of top end drivers which made it hard to keep my interest. Thinking moving to a touring car class could be more enjoyable for an intermediate driver.

Coming from carpet to asphalt with my tc, I thought I was slow on carpet (TZ 2)....then GOING outside I learned I am even worse, but it does not matter because the Timezone gang is the SHIZZ to race with. All great guys that are more than helpfully and make it a point everyone has Fun.

Hope to make tommorow for some nitro Gt8 action. Heard the Ofna army grew this week

Hey Guys, whats the turnout been like for F1 class? I am considering going F1 initially since I would be able to run it at both TZ tracks and would be inexpensive to get me back in the hobby.

It is just a club race with a cool name. 300 is for 300 seconds which is 5 minutes which is the length of our electric qualifiers and mains which is cool which I think which you should come down

F-1 turnout out is really light. We had one at the track today. It is better to have a sedan and a F-1 for a second class

That's a bummer. Ok, guess I need to decide between a VBC or Xray. Anyone have setup sheets for the track for either?

Hopefully shook my car gremlins away today. 😄

Had a great time today. Can't thank Rick enough for his hospitality, and incredible facility. Scale spec was a blast, seeing that Ryan's B.'s old tc3, and my club racer tc4 could stay close to the current cars means anyone can be competitive on a budget.. A great thing for beginners, and the class. Thanks Mike B. For the tires and wheels, they made the difference for me (and almost on the same lap as you) I hope my schedule permits a few more races ahead. Top notch people, and place!

That track looks absolutely huge. What kind of FDR are people running down there?

Oh and is there a place nearby to bury the wife's body if things go bad? That's a long drive to have her 2 feet away from me jabbering in my ear.
