I unfortunately will not be in attendance for the race. I have an offroad race on Saturday. I may come to visit for a couple hours and see how things are going.

That's an interesting ideal - sedans on Tamiya foam tires. Middle River runs rubber for sedan and F1 classes, but the rule as written would not exclude a foam-car from passing TCS race tech. But who has Tamiya foam sedan tires?

Foam tires are required for the Tamiya 1/12th scale 13.5 class. I will bring my 1/12th scale, so if anybody else has one, bring it. We need five to race!

so i just went through the rule book to comply with the TCS Mini rules for the first TCS race of 2014.... 1300grams? Really, why the need to add 50grams to the chassis. the brushless systems is not that much heavier. Silver cans weigh 166 grams and brushless motors are between 165 and 180 depending.

Guess i need to make a trip to the LHS for some ugly ass lead weights.

Finally ready. For those needing to add weight and familiar with PineWood Derby sets, they sell a Tungsten weight kits. (the weights on the top of my car are tungsten and each weigh 15 grams. I added 20 grams in the front bumper area. Must give props to Dean Issac for the awesome paint job.

I've got 18lbs of 1/8" lead sheet sitting behind me. Gets attached to minis around an ounce at a time. I'll never be rid of it!

I see in the entry form space for THREE CLASS entries. We have been limited to only two classes for quite some time.

Can we now run three classes of any type?
