Default Tamiya track!

I believe they open the gates around 9:00am and the track will be ready around 10:00. Cleaning and setting up the track takes time!

Just use the same setup that you would use with rubber tires.

Default tires

Hey all,

Does Tamiya ever spec a tire for any classes at Nationals? I was reading a past TCS nationals write up and it sounded like everyne was on b-compounds-but it could have just been poor editing.

Any Tamiya tire that is specific for those cars. F201's have to run the kit, A or B tire. GT-1 / GT-2 the 24mm tire A, B, B2 or B3. Mini's depend on the body type.

Yeah, those tires were the bomb, weren't they.

Jas has a point, might have been an old stat you were looking at. What I mentioned above is what they did for '03 and '04.

Ray, why do you need tire info for Tamiya USA?

B2's...dude, those sucked so bad, I wouldn't even give them to..well, Troy, to run, that would be too cruel even for me (and that's saying a lot)
