Yes indeed, rumor has it, TCS legal for 2015.

Fred, by the way, if Tamiya releases this body, your sin of banning the older NSXs will be largely forgiven, at least by me

Or how about an LFA Body? By now its a little old, so the Toyota FT-1 Concept might be a cool option.

Default Hebiki Design Works Custom Graphics - Inquires is just a PM away

Since I dont have my hands on an NSX yet.... I was toying around in Photoshop and came up with my new paint scheme.

I hear tales of a race where you had to wheelie on the straight etc. Sounds like fun..

I would LOVE to see this as an exhibition class!!

My WW2 is just a shelf queen, but it would be awesome to see it running around the track in a swarm of VWs, Lunchboxes, and other Wild Willys.

Question for you TCS gurus and Fred in particular. I have a F104V2 but with a TRF101 main chassis plate. Is this a legal mod?

Gents,

My local club has a M-chassis class that follows TCS rules only.

Some of us have the M03 but only have rectangular batteries and are not too keen on the oval batteries.

Since the M05 and M06 allow rectangular batteries, is it legal to rectangle the oval battery slots?

Or.

Is there a M03 kit chassis that already has done this?

I do have an M06 opted out so you don't have to tell me to buy an M05-6.

Coop

Looking on attending one of these races in June.

I am a huge Tamiya fan and finally get to go to one of these races.

I do have a few questions, Can I race my TRF TA04 with the Carbon Fiber chassis hop up in GT1?

I also plan on running GT2 with a TB-04, can I race both classes?

For the chance to win a trip to Japan, is that race only held in California or any GT1 TCS race?

Thanks.

The modification you described would not be legal.
