How many classes can you run at the TCS Finals? Are you limited to only run one class even if you've qualified in multiple classes?

Sorry for the newbie question, but I've never been.


Thanks.

Markus,

For the finals you can only run one class but there are two exhibition classes this year, one is FF-03 and the other is RM-01, so you actually can run two classes but one has to be the exhibition class and the other is the remaining classes!
Hope to see you for the finals, lets find each other and I'll help you get things sorted, I can save you a spot for that weekend. We try to make the out of towners feel welcome whenever we can!
Max

I am trying to make arrangements now. It will be nice to meet you in person as well as some of the other TCS racers that I've come to know through rctech over the years.
This may be the only time I'll ever have a chance to make it there. (perfect storm this year for me: work schedule, vacation time, $$$ lol)

One class it is...... but now which one???

Thanks Max.

A top 10 finish @ any of the TCS Regional events. So you would be eligible with your recent finishing position. All Aboard !!!! Bag check, one two, one two.

My first TCS event is in the books. Super impressed with the way things ran. Usual standard issue Jackson program,,,,,,,,,,,,,,flawless. John Brown your vision came to fruition. Your crew knew what to do to assist you in achieving your goals. Al Sodano, Greg Sharpe, ALex Valdes, Mike Hanulec and the rest of the Jackson crew did the darn thing again. Was neat seeing faces I have never seen before. Over 100 entries speaks for itself. I learned much and became more comfortable with the cars. Special mention goes to my info guru for the day, Kevin Bojarski. The week prior to the event I probably used up all his phone minutes while he assisted me in getting up to speed on how TCS events run. Thanks go out to Steve Sohl, Carl Giordano, and Ralph Morella for tolerating my form of "having fun"

Tamiya, keep this going!!!!!!!

gotcha...so its kinda like going from Philadelphia to the South Jersey shore - 106 miles in 2 to 4 hours, give or take all the yahoos going to the beach

Looks like the TCS nationals will have to wait for another year - ran it by the 'financial advisor' (wife) and not in the cards for this year, she's out of vacation time

Hello everyone

The TCS North American Finals are coming up and I have posted some information on our TCS website. Please visit the page as many questions and details are listed. I will monitor the thread in case you have any questions. Take note, there are no real earth shattering announcements. Just a few things to know and some rules clarifications.

The information is under the TCS Finals tab.

Hi Guys, sorry for the late posting
Just wanted to thank John from Brownies Hobbies and the Crew from Jackson RC Racetrack for such a fun and exciting first time out for us.
We're already looking forward to next years race there

Also we would like to Thank whoever choose Jonathon for the "Pay It Forward"
chassis. It is really wonderful that so many people made him feel welcomed
at such a large event. Considering that people could get lost in a event with so
many people It is great to see that there are so many wonderful welcoming people
out there at an event such as this.

F1 tires are being bagged as we speak. Hobby shops have placed their orders and they will be shipping starting next week.

I have submitted descriptions and images to our web department, so the product pages will be updated shortly.

Cheers.
