don't look like you're getting ANY brushless motor in there, aside from a SpeedPassion (with its plug-in connectors)

Not yet, but supposedly shipping this month. Installing a typical brushless motor does not look like a problem to me, but keeping the motor *cool* could be. We'll see.

Attention TCS Racers,

As many of you know Tamiya America will be hosting the Reedy Race of Champions on May 22-25. The Reedy Race organizers are looking for a few good men to help run Tech Inspection. The jobs are simple enough.

They include:

1. Check car weight.
2. Check battery voltage and temperature.
3. Check ESC for blinky legality.
4. Check car wing and height dimensions.
5. Check suspect 13.5 motors using supplied measuring equipment for compliance.
6. For the Invite Class only: oversee spec tire installation before each heat race. (The invitational racers are not allowed to take their tires into the pits)

We could use a total of 5 experienced guys. The Reedy Race organizers will be providing lunch. For TCS racers interested in helping we will also reward each tech crew member with a choice of any one of the following NEW Tamiya kits if you can work at least two of the days listed below:

1. TRF101W or TRF101
2. M-05 Version II
3. TB-EVO 6
4. TB-04 Pro Version 2

We specifically need people for the following days:

Friday: 12:00 Noon to 6:30pm
Saturday: 9:00am to 6:30pm
Sunday: 9:00am to 6:30pm

If you are interested in helping please PM me and I can provide further details.

The Tech Crew for the 2014 Reedy Race has been filled. I want to thank everyone who contacted me for wanting to help. I was very impressed on how many of you offered to be part of the crew!

F1 foam tire guys. Don't forget, make sure to sign up for the TCS race at TQ Raceway also. F1 rubber tire class will be the regular F1 race. However, if we can get at least 5 racers, we will be allowed to have a class. Probably won't have trophies or prizes for the class but sure will be fun. I will be at TQ Thursday and Friday night to help anyone with their F1 foam tire car with set-up, gearing or tire truing questions.
