Nice facility, and a fun layout, offered plenty of practice time. Owners Joe and Ian are great! I hope to make it next year.

The inaugural TCS race at Access Hobbies in OH this weekend went very well. There were a few growing pains with some new TCS racers and a new venue, but Joe and Ian did a good job accommodating everyone as best they could. The turn out was mixed, but considering the incredibly warm weather (80deg and sunny), it was good for a 1st time event (12 heats of qualifying).

The GT-Pro Spec and Spec Novice classes had very strong support. Looks like a lot of promising up and coming racers in that class (9 car battle royal main event!)

Seemed like fun was had by all and hopefully the track will be in the running for future TCS events.

At the request of some of the racers who regurlarly attend TQ RC Raceway, we have added the 1/12GT class to the race program. It's a winner take all class. 1st place prize only.

At last weekend's TCS race,in Ohio, the BRZ body seemed to be the preferred body. The Ferrari 599 or the 458 are also great handling bodies.

i'm going to buck the BRZ trend and go with the Sumo Power Nissan GT-R since I had good luck with that the last time i ran it

I also have a Toyota Corolla Axio body I'll paint up - absolutely love that body.

if both of them suck - I have a 599xx to fall back on

all three of these will be using the optional Tamiya rear wing - not the ones included in the kits

Default Jackson TCS race rescheduled?

Over on the Jackson RC thread they posted the TCS race there has been rescheduled to July 31, but the Tamiya website still says August 7. Can we clear that up please?

New body came in for the tt02, going old school for the TCS. Back almost 20 years ago this was the ff01 I wanted, but all the shop had was the Tom's Levin so I ended up with that.
