Hey everybody.

No. I don't need to win. But I do need to wreck havoc as Mr. Lewis stole my thunder at this years KO. As long as Rod doesn't take me out I will be fine.

Martin. I've only run the car for two packs worth. I'm really impressed how well it works with a 23 T motor.

All normal option touring car parts are legal. Dampers, spacers, TI stuff. Like I said before I want everyone to have fun with it as the TA-05 will be the past chump car for some time to come.

I know the spec Tamiya tire thing is kind of a bummer as most other races use RP's, Sorex or Take Off's. I'll be looking at the GT tire rules for 2006 after this season. Frankly, I'm a bit tired of scrambling for tires for our events when I can easily call up Adrain at Schumacher. Catch my drift We'll see. I'll take a poll with the host sites and racers after the Nats

I set up the track layout this late afternoon I think most of you guys will appreciate it.

There will be some live coverage. I'll post who that is tomorrow. I'll also post the track layout on our site in the morning too.
Good luck to all. I have some cool prizes and cool things to announce for next year. It's going to be a blast.
Last thing. Izzy was asking about the dry ice dealio. After much thought I will be banning those systems as the danger of them falling out and causing a unforseen accident could ruin someones' day. Sorry Izzy

Fred,

It's cool, get it, COOL! LOL, duh!
it was'nt much of an improvement though, so to anyone who wants to use this technology in other events in the future, forget about it, take it from me it does not work."

Well Guys. It's really wierd being that it's the week of the TCS Nationals and I'm not in Aliso Veijo. This is probably for the first time in 8 years that I'm not in California. I miss it alot . But I hope to see some of you in Las Vegas this september and I hope it's really a good show! Again I really... REALLY miss being here. Good Luck!

Yeah I guess it does feel a little weird not being there, but I did miss the year before last due to a wedding that I had to go to, so its not that weird. Again to those that are out there, good luck and safe travel from your respective locations. Just to stir the pot since I am not there to do it in person, could this be Docs year for a mini title? and will the Hickman juggernaut come ot of hibernation for the F1 crown? Will Marty tune himself out of contention and Will Katzer finally go to Japan? To find out tune in on Sunday same bat time, same bat channel. Fred, good luck in the grudge match haven't talked to you in a while, but it seems like the event is running like a well oiled machine.

Ok I am going after the TCS Nats No-Prize.

My Picks....
GT1 - Orlando Sherman (he has an "Incredible" avatar)
GT2 - Kevin Michellich (probably has the TA05TRF)
Mini - Doc Mertes (remembers my birthday)
F1 - Steve Hickman (he likes Jeff Gordon in F1)

Izzy, George and Corey are probably the ones but hey, trying to step outside the box.

Past Chumps...
Well since 1st is Martin Crisp.
My pick for 2nd will be Ding-a-Linger

Jeff

Hi Guys,

Just want to let everyone know that Tamiya came through and delivered one last shipment to us today before the TCS National. Most of the spare and hop-up parts are back in stock and we even got about 10 sets of B3 tires and some F201 tires in stock as well. So for those of you coming by tonight, we should be well stocked for you guys

So who fast out there today?
