The closest I've seen is the ABC Hobby Swift that comes with buckets. The car is probably scaled a little differently, but it might come close.

Depending on turnout there could be a limit on how many racers we can handle! But, they should still bring extension cords and power strip, we are limited on these!
Just my 2$

Thanks Max. We will work on the tax thing tomorrow. There shouldn't be any.

As for the power, thank you so much for the offer! I'll discuss it with Jeff and Fred tomorrow, but I'm sure the racers will love you for that!

Hello Everyone,

I am currently working on updating the TCS Champion Hall of Fame page on the TCS website. It's never been that complete, so now is a good time to get a nice looking page. We have images of all the TCS Finals Champions except for the following people in the list below. If anyone has old photos of the champions from the event please let me know and we'll get the site as complete as possible.

Thanks

Very valid questions, Mr. Cole and ones we gave a lot of thought to.

In the Tamiya TCS type classes, we decided to mirror TCS rules but not *exactly,* because that is mostly what people are used to.

FWD - We had some people campaign to allow other chassis such as the 3racing Sakura FF to compete alongside the Tamiya FF03. Similar to the advantage that the Xevo mini conversions had on Tamiya minis, we felt that the all carbon cars would hold the same advantage over the Tamiya tub cars. I have a feeling that the mass majority of FF03 drivers would feel the same way. Just a hunch though. To explain further, the idea behind the decision was to prolong the longevity of the class. If the carbon cars all come out and wax the FF03s, the FF03s will probably not come out at our next club race. Hope you understand As for 21.5, that was based on customer demand and has nothing to do with TCS.

13.5 - This is what the majority of experts that we polled said they wanted to run. It was a close race between 13.5 and 17.5 with 13.5 getting the most votes at the end. If I remember right, you either have a Ballistic or Thunder Power motor for which I can "hook you up" with a 13.5 stator for much, much less than $80. How's that sound?
