Thanks!
Visit the TCS Section on the website. There are tabs for the general rules for your convenience, and a tab for "schedule and entry form". Registration for the TCS Aliso Viejo race event is not open as of yet.

Event registration usually opens about 2 weeks before each event.

Mr. Duty,

My system shows a spot open for both GT 10 and TC 17.5. Try it now.

Also, so everyone is aware. I will not be accepting on site entries. If the class is full it's full. There isn't enough daylight to handle more entries.

Thanks for taking care of that, Fred. I signed up to ride the West Hills Metric Century before I saw this post.

See you the next weekend.

TRF 101 is legal for TCS racing.

Rules I saw were not updated, my bad.

Are we allowed to run fans for TCS? If so, does it have to be Tamiya brand?

Yes, you can run a fan. One for your speedo and one for your motor. Any brand is ok.

What's better? A fan or heatsink for the motor?

On behalf of the whole crew your welcome!
It is a lot of hard work especially when it was hot. For me I never get tired of prepping the track and afterwards seeing racers smiling faces coming off the drivers stand after a good run.
Most of the time we get it right but sometimes mother nature pulls a fast one on us and lays down a lot of pollen from the wind which forced us to decide to re-spray that morning. We sprayed the night before but that morning was really bad, so I got a little carried away and soaked the track a little too much and the track stayed wet for at least an hour before the sun dried everything out which made the first run feel like you were using drifting tires! We wont make the same mistake again ! We have in the past dragged wet towels onto the track instead and cleaned off the pollen and allowed the track to dry much faster.
If the same situation comes up next week we know what to do!
Just my 2$
