Thanks David for replying. That clears it up for me.

Yes, the Subaru BRZ is legal. Currently, it is available with the TA06 (58548) and separately as a body set (51515). Both are in stock and should be available through your favorite retailer. The RTR version (TT01ES) is not yet in stock though but coming soon.

So the question on everyones minds (at least those of us that run F1) is when are the TCS/PIT tires going to be back in stock. I have had them on order going on 2 months now.
The race I plan on going to isn't till March, but March is not very far off.

The F1 tires (1031 & 1032) should be available next week.

I don't have an ETA for the Mini control tires yet. I'll let you know when I find out more. Have a great weekend everyone.

Already asked on the mini thread, but thought I'd come to the source to see if an insider (that's you David!) has an official answer. What's up with the new rubber compound in the S Grip Radials? They're really soft compared to the last batch I bought.

Questions??

My first TCS experience was at Trackside Hobbies. One of the cool things about that venue was the dirt track in the back. Don't get me wrong. My first love was and always will be onroad racing, but the rally class at the Trackside TCS was a blast. To the best of my knowledge, that was the only TCS venue to have any offroad classes.

I'm not 100% sure, but I believe the Hobbyplex has a dirt track. Is there any chance the Hobbyplex will pick up Tracksides torch and bring back a little offroad to the TCS? Rally! Rally! Rally!
