2) you must use superglue as a traction compound.

Hope this helps
Good luck!!!!

Hi guys,

I posted two news announcements for the TCS Series. Please read below:
It's also posted on: http://www.tamiyausa.com/tcs/tcs.php?article-id=556

5/9/12

An amendment to the FWD class rules has been made. The amendment covers the use of polycarbonate wings on FWD body sets that have wing stay dimples. In the spirit of making the class more competitive with closer racing, the use of wings is now legal.
5/9/12

Three speed controls have been added to the TCS "approved" list. They are manufactured by Novak. Two are replacements to discontinued models and one is a new non-timing Club model legal for all brush-less classes.

Hey Orlando,
Just went down and checked the NIB Acura Integra I have and it has "dimples" Since I've just sold my FF03 (like 2 days before Fred's announcement), I'll make you a great deal on it! I'm sure it will be dialed with that big wing mounted on it.

Hello.

Does anyone from the TCS race that was held at RC MADNESS have any images of the event whatsoever? I really need them.

Thanks
