I believe Fred will be updating the page to include shocks and a number of other items that are "in stock".

Same here, not sure about the $$$. If shocks are a go then I hope that just means they'll allow me to put my 415 shocks in . I still think it'll be cool just to run the cars box stock as the rule- the way the Tamiya series was meant to be

Ling... if you and Neil go... (Saw Neil already shopping for his stuff... ) I'll open up my daughter's piggy bank to get some needed $$$. It would be cool to wear that "grey" Jersey again complete with bib. But then, it would not be cool if I'm the only one to wear it... haha!

So that's why you were practicing the bumper bumps on Eeyan last week.

You have been a load of help to me my friend. I am looking forward to getting out to Cali through the Washington Turnpike. Not only in meeting you but some of the other nice guys in the series.

Does anyone know when sign-ups will open for the TCS Nationals? Will it be shortly after this weekend's last TCS?

My guess is that there will be a signup page on their web site next week. Seems like they can only put one of those up at a time, and they wait until an event has ended before putting up the page for the next one.

Looks like I will have to miss the next TCS race/Nats this year. My wife got really sick and it looks like a done deal. Hopefully next year I will have better options to work with.

I'm definitely going. I just received my TA05 with little hopups. God, I hope the motors and the batts will kick the car in the arse for some speed. I am definitely bringing and wearing our team shirts, I don't have a bib though. I gave my back to Tamiya since they were asking for it. Ling, are you going to make it out? It would be cool to get the team back together again.

My understanding is if shocks are replaceable, then do it. The hop-ups for the TA05 aren't the only hop-ups you can put on there. You better show up damn it!
