We ask you post the proof to Facebook

From today....

My ALS ICE Bucket Challenge
Thank you to Mike Haynes for introducing me to artic cold. I miss the East Coast so much.

I took the challenge and will also donate.

My challenge is now passed to a stellar group of individuals that MUST pay (donate) or play (get some ice water)...

TamiyaUSA 's Fred Medel - great sport and old friend
Team Trinity 's Ernest Provetti - real all-around 'good guy'
Team Losi Racing's Todd Tlr Hodge - my old r/c mentor
Next weekends winner of GT1& GT2 @ Tamiya TRF-series

***The anticipation will make you talk faster....

It is a great cause.

The 24 clock starts now (except for the GT1/GT2 winners next weekend)! Good luck. ‪#‎benchracing‬ ‪#‎tcs‬ ‪#‎hearmeroar‬ That last plug is for Ernie!

Results are on liverc.

For some reason the triple main pages only reflect the first main, so you have to figure out the overall results for yourself.

Thumbs up CONGRATS!!!!!!

A BIG CONGRATS to all the winners of 2014 TCS Nationals! Great job guys.

To the trip winners, Craig, Julian, Nathan, and Danny…have a great time in Japan and the best of luck to you over there.

Thank you to all the Tamiya staff and volunteers for your help. It was great seeing you all again.

@RBF…is that standard equipment or aftermarket?

Another great Tamiya event. Thanks to Fred, the Tech Crew and everyone involved.

Curious as to how do we sort out tie breakers for the lower double Mains? They're not a part of the posted results.

Thanks for a memorable event. That was a great way to celebrate 20yrs of racing the TCS way. A super fun event and loved Charlie S on the mic.

Congrats to the winners....All but one have raced it for more than 5 years and earned it. The GT2 winner earned it as well, just at a much faster pace. Julian was on point all weekend and I gave it all I had and he was just superior.

Wow what a great weekend of racing!
Thanks Fred and the whole Tamiya Crew awesome event as usual.
Plenty of drama and excitement.

Redbull, mines almost built and ready for testing already!
Trying for a 24hr turnaround from receiving it to building it!
Loving that the F1 is going back to old school fat tire being legal.
See you on the rug for the shakedown soon!

See that Vyger?
