Default TCS #178

Just a reminder to those who plan to participate in our upcoming TCS race.

We are now an "oderless compound" facility with only (3) allowed tire traction compounds. Gravity RC's LGC, SXT Racing 3.0 and Trinity Sticky Fingers are the only acceptable compounds. Nothing Else

House rule changes as well: M-Chassis ride height will be lowered to 3mm minimum, pass/fail.

ALL Lipos must be charged in a approved charging "bag" or similar device.

I am entertaining having a GT3 "PRO" exhibition class, which closely mimics the popular USGT class and would be open to all TCS participants. I will let you know by weeks end.

Hope see everyone from last year in 2 weeks

I have only ever used Jack the Gripper at other "odorless compound" tracks. I am unfamiliar with the three compounds you listed. Will there be plenty of the approved compounds on hand in the shop, or do I need to locate my own before arriving?

Love the traction compound changes - Paragon while excellent, is quite toxic.

Can you confirm the ride height for F1 as well? Same as mini - 3mm?

Yes, 3mm for F1 as well with our super duper double re-calibrated inspection bar

SXT is comparable to Jack, and as long as our supplier ships it in a timely fashion, we will have plenty as well as LGC

BTW: Sticky Fingers and Jack are the same thing. (direct quote from a guy who works at Trinity) SXT is pretty close. Paragon is evil.

Questions??

Eric,

Is there a recommended hotel or motel for those of us traveling from out of state for the upcoming TCS event at The Track at Harbor Hobbies?

http://gurneegrandhotel.com/

http://www.lq.com/lq/properties/prop...do?propId=4017

These are the 2 that most stay at when traveling here. Both are about the same distance to the track and are both located on the interstate.

When staying at the Gurnee Grand make sure you tell them you are coming here for a race and you should receive a $55 room rate plus meal vouchers at Golden Coral.
