The Fresno TCS race had FF race I think they are going to have FF class at the NorCal TCS race. I was planning on running the FF class at the Tamiya Nationals I was told FF is only popular on the West Coast.

If you look at the registration page, it is not offered as a class. The rules for 2017 do not include the FF class.

They need to change it to red if it's not available

Saw an FF class at Fresno. Looked real fun that I'm planning to run the class at NorCal if they offer it.

I think the general rule/understanding is that enough people show an interest (enough people show up for the class) then there will be one.. contact your race director and fellow Tamiya Participants to make sure there is an interest..

I think we will have one at the Aliso Regional..

Hey guys,

I am going to be competing in my first TCS this year in Spec Novice with a TT02. I am curious about bodies. I am running the Subaru WRC body that came with the kit as a thrasher body (My first body in about 20 years....didn't come out so hot). I ordered a Raikiri as kind of a shelf queen/something nice to drive around on the street. I am looking at some bodies for racing and a lot of the bodies I am finding are for TT01, TA05, etc. I don't know a ton about the differences in chassis, but would it be hard to convert a body meant for the TT01 for use on the TT02? Also, I did find the Porsche 911 Carrera (TAM51543) for the TT02....is that a race legal body?

Sorry for the long first post.....just trying to get my bearings (get it? A little RC joke...)

All 190mm bodies designed to fit on generic touring car chassis will fit your TT02. 10th scale RC touring chassis are all designed to a industry standard dimensions which means bodies will 99% of the time be interchangeable. Any Tamiya produced GT and sports car bodies are allowed other than the the Subaru Legacy B4 body (items 53727, 49374 & 53824). I recommend you to use the Raikiri body you already have for the race.

Have fun at your first TCS!

HI gang, the Tamiya web sight states we use the same tire compounds from last year in the GT Sedan classes. Have any one heard any thing about a new tire compound to be used for 2017? Just wundering , thanks for your time.

The Porsche body is legal, but you need to switch the chassis to short wheelbase configuration. This is only possible on the TT02 and TT02R

Haven't heard anything, but they might wait until Nats to roll out the new tire
