Big question: will the M-03 be legal for this event?
Second, not-so-big question: Aside from the above, are there any major rule changes in Mini or GT2 we need to know about?

Since this event is only 33 days away, would be nice to know so as to be prepared.
Thanks!
Doc
The 2014 rules apply for this event. Until 2015 TCS Rules are finalized, the current rules remain.

is it mandatory that we run them? If its not, are there any other Tamiya tires we can run?
Fred, maybe you can clairify this for us, we're trying to get ready for the MRH race on November 9th

Talking Carpet rules!

Hope this was of some help to you.
Just my 2$

Pulled right out of the GT3 rules. Pretty self explanatory.

"7. Spec tires: Pre-mount B3 tires must be used on asphalt tracks (item 1015). Any Tamiya tire and wheel may be used for indoor carpet tracks. Note: Tamiya’s C-compound tires are best for carpet. (item 54256)"

This Tamiya reminds me of my brother. He was really into that when he was still younger. I don't know if I will make sense but according to him, it is a radio controlled car racing competition that is organized by Tamiya America, Inc. Well, so good to here this series competition championship. I think, it is more fun and excting!

Simple bracket made from aluminum scrap mounted to the threaded hole on top of the spur gear holder to one corner of the fan. Bracket can be formed to whichever angle of the fan over the motor you prefer.

I thought about doing something similar with a scrap piece of lexan - so I guess this might work better

I'll have to take a picture of the fan unit when I get home tonight. With this heat sink, the clamp area is shorter then the motor can, so there is a little room for play. For insurance, I added a piece of foam servo tape to the solder posts.
