When is that 16t BL system going to be available in N America? I can buy it online easily enough, but we need it here to replace all the various silver can replacements.

There were a lot of Subaru BRZs running...myself included. It seemed to have the right balance of aggressiveness and stability. I've tested a Calsonic Impul Z and it feels similar but the BRZ just looks the business Also tested the R8, 458, 599, HSV, Corolla, etc...but kept going back to the BRZ.

Not sure of any additional vids Izzy...Torg posted some earlier.

The BRZ always was the second best body behind the 05 NSX.

Cmon Fred - outlaw the BRZ one too! Okay, that's snark.

What I wish would be considered is if Tamiya observes everyone running to the "next best body" it be banished for one or two seasons. I know it's not going to happen, but I'd like to see it.

I converted my mountain bike to tubeless. On the very first ride out, the front tire pressure got really low and coming back to the trailhead so low it folded under and I crashed at 30+. I went to an orthopedic suegon in Irvine on Monday and he gave me 40-50 injections to try and get the inflammation down, but I was not well and in so much agony in my left hand I couldn't figure out how to hold the transmitter much less wrench or load and unload my gear, or keep it together on the track over four days.

I'm doing much better now, looking forward to racing with everyone next year again, and planning on doing a short ride tonight to celebrate.

Is there a possibility that the 16t brushless motor used at Nats will become the spec mini motor for next season?

Does anyone know what motors and chassis' were in the GT2 A main? I am really curious how the newer chassis' (TA06/TB04) did in comparison to the older ones.

I ran a TB04R with the NSX concept body. There were two 04's in the A main that I remember, the other one was running a BRZ. Very competitive along with the field actually! It can keep pace for sure, but I'm not sure about the TA06 in the mix for A main category.
The top two chassis' were TA05 and 3rd was a TB03. The TA05 was the most dominant I think in the A main group.

Motors were varied with all the popular flavors. You should visit the track to get an idea on the motor choices though.

Haven't seen any TA06 this time around but TB04 is proving to be competitive. I'm kinda tempted to buy a ta06 to see how it is. I honestly think any chassis is competitive in gt2 if you have the right driver behind the wheel and the right setup.

I'm currently using Ta05v2 since it's the easiest to maintain for me.
