Pretty rookie question,

If you race in the spec class, can you also race in the mini class?
also, how rookie as far skills is the spec class?

Thank you in advance.

A big thank you to Tamiya America and Fred Medel for another great TCS Nationals. Great battles in a lot of classes with two of the three trip classes going to A3 to determine the winner.

Thanks to my brother Mr. Postman for all your help in the pits and on the track so I could enjoy running FF03 class along with Gt-2.

Congrats Henry for your GT-1 win. An awesome battle against Andrew, along with all the other class champions. Good luck and have fun for those three going to Japan this year.

To the staff of Tamiya, my pit buddy Rob K. and all the other racers thanks for the memories. I had a great time. My sincere apologies to Austin and Anthony Fung. I'm not the type of racer that intentionally takes out other racers. Sorry...

Congrats Austin on your win. Good luck in Japan show them your Wheelmanship dude. Two thumbs up homie.

man, I can't see with all them "foreign" noise in the background.

it looked like two orange cars morphed into one orange car and decided to go off-road together holding hands...I don't know about the rest of you, I usually just try and go straight on the...well, straightaway

I will have to say, Good Job Orlando, you were fast and you were consistent all weekend, and you were the man to beat.

last time i checked i was racing on-road.. on the outside line.. so i wasnt trying to hold hands with anyone and 'pull' them outside to the dirt..

some will argue rubbing is racing.. which is true.. but with the apparent 'more motor' at the last leg of the lap do you really need to 'rub' (push your opponent off his line) with all that room? some call that aGGRRRessive..
