Cool Tamiya America GoPro

Hey guys, i was at the Tamiya track yesterday and brought my New GoPro HD. After trying a few different mounting positions i got the video as still and clean as i think it will ever be. There was a lot of requests yesterday to put this up on Youtube and post it on RCTech. Here it is, its about a 5min collaboration of all the video i took yesterday.
It is in HD so remember to change the video to 720p HD on youtube when you watch it. (if you want to see how clear it really is.

I ran a TCS legal ESC at the Xray challenge and was happy with my 4th place result. I felt like my lack of driving and setup knowlegde were the only things holding me back.

I can't set a car up to save my life to run on a low grip track like Tamiya Aliso so I think, based on what I have seen there lately, that the podium in GT1 will come down to setup and driving skill.

The fun race will be down to setup, tires and driving skill...

I plan on running my new ta06 at the MD TCS next month. As a tamiya and onroad n00b, what body should I pick up to use in gt2? Something that handles well for a new driver?

If we are concern on brushless system fairness because of prize in fun race, then why GT2 has no motor rpm limit !!!! People can tweak , zap, and get special tune mabuchi is fair ?

Opening up the esc's is opening up Pandora's box again. If it is a "no prize club race", go ahead. But since prizes are being awarded and the race is based on TCS rules, people who will run the TCS legal esc's that they got to run GT-1 this year will be at a disadvantage to some other esc's if allowed. Is that fair to the people who bought new equipment to compete in a certain TCS class this year ?

The GT-1 esc rule for the fun race should be either the current TCS rule or open to any ROAR legal esc rather than start adding just this esc or just that esc because someone wants to run "what they have".
I am in support of using the ROAR list. The point is to include more equipment that is allowed to get more people back to racing especially the fun races. For TCS races, rules has already been set and the ship has sailed.

Did everyone see the new Honda CRZ body that Tom was running. His car was sick. I ran my Integra and Honda Civic type R and I couldn't keep up with his car. I hope Rod brings his FF-03 next weekend so he can run against the CRZ. Without a wing that body works really well. I need to try it again if Tom is willing!
Oh, and that was my TA05-V2 in the video, very cool to watch the suspension working as it's going around the track!
