Our Realistic class meshes well with TCS spec F1

Motor : 21.5 or silver can
ESC : non boost, stock setting... ROAR list
Tires : rubber only, F1 scale
Body : F1 with scale front and rear wing...
Width : 180mm maximum
Battery : 2 cell lipo only
Drive : 2 wheel Rear drive Only

We will have a 2 minute fast lap qualifier around noon
followed by 3 10 minute races starting at 2PM

for more info :

Youse with F1's really need to bring 'em and run 'em. The UF1 guys are a great bunch to run with, and I personally look forward to having them hand my a** to me. It really is great fun. Charlie's two-minute qualifier is a little slice of real F1 tension, our very own Q2 and Q3 to get the job done. For those of you racing F1 on Sunday, it will be a great experience to dial-in with. I really do urge you to come one, come all.
Just don't stand too close to Cuda's motor if you want to have kids that don't have fins or flippers, that's all.

After the rains this morning that made everyone leave the Tamiya track, it's now blue skies and dried asphalt in Aliso Viejo. Hope TCS will be rescheduled and soon.
