Default Rules

Its on the Finals info page at the website. Looks like they changed it to allow the 05 now. Also the motor for f1 and gt1 is the RR with laydown brushes and gt2 and mini get mabuchi's.

But will people stick with the trusty 04's until they have more time with the 05...or will the 05 immediatley prove its worth...time will tell. Has the TB02 even got a die hard base yet??

Im gonna watch to see if it's time to give the 04 the retirement its deserved...3 yrs with only 1 broken belt and a popped out servo horn! This is including TCS', Snowbirds, club races, bashes, Pretty impressive car Tamiya! If the 05 in indeed a superior car the 04 deserves the shelf rest!

Of course the TRF shocks and the other "Transferrable" parts won't find their way to the shelf.

Maybe they should keep it box stock or stick to a specific kit number.

I have a question for you guys,

Where is the SoCal track. I will be out in the San Diego area this weekend and early next week. Was thinking of sneaking away from the family to get some time on a California track. I have a free day on tuesday and would like to get some laps in was just wandering if it would be worth sneaking a limited amount of stuff with me into the suitcase. I wanted to get to the Tamiya track but my day is all booked on Sat.

thanks for any ideas.

Larry
