Thank you

You can mix and match the spec tires for mini.

Sorry, no pic, but I understand that you can remove the entire splitter, but not above that transition line (if that makes sense).

Seems to work well once the rear splitter is gone. Looks better too.

There is a novice racer who took 1st, 2nd or 3rd place in the previous year. Can he/she still race in the same novice class at this year? I am just curious.

The unwritten rule (at least in So Cal area as that is where the Nats are held) is the Novice winner at Nats is done in Novice and moves up to GT-3 or other classes. The others can race Novice again the following year. Just making the podium at a Regional the year before does not make them ineligible to run Novice this year.

Double negative You can run the Novice Class again if you did not win the TCS Nationals

Great racing at the TCS Regional event at RCMadness this past weekend in CT.

Congratulations to all the racers braving the east coast's "brisk" weather this past weekend. Big thanks to Chris Marcy and the entire RCM crew!
