Hey guys,

The RULES for 2014 and other information has been on the TCS website since Thanksgiving in a PDF. I have updated the websites navigation to reflect what is exactly on the PDF for your easy viewing pleasure.

It should prove easy for all to find and understand.

Also, I apologize for the sign ups not being up. Both the Jan 19 TCS race and Omaha TCS race should be up by Wednesday Jan 15.

FM

You're gonna like it.
Hello Doc. Thanks for the update and can't wait for the start of the 2014 season. Did you have to make many chassis changes in brushless compared to brushed.

How you you guys fitting the brushless speedo's into an M03? Seems like a lot of finagling to get the thing in the chassis housing.
I had forgotten all about this race, but Manny was nice enough to remind me.

That's a good question, how are you gonna find room for the esc? Now I have a brand new silver can and speedo from Tamiya I can't use. Bummer.

As any sedan tire/wheel combo can be used in GT1, GT2, & GT3, don't be fooled thinking all those grey rims are running the same tires! Where are my disk wheels!

Jamie, I used a Tekin and rewired it so everything comes off of the tabs horizontally, then took apart the back end and placed it so the wires come out of the window on the left side. Took some time and some firm foam to make everything fit without rattling around a little but you'll figure it out.

+1. Makes for a cleaner look as well w/o the wiring mess sitting on top of the chassis.
