Awesome pic.. Love they diversity in bodies, creativity in livery. That's they way USGT should look.

They even have a SWB Porsche class?

Yep, Porsche Cup class. Box stock besides bearings...handout torque tuned motors. It was super close racing and too much fun!

6. Any Tamiya 190 mm GT or Sports car body is permitted with the exception of the VERMAC 350R GT (AKA EBBRO 350R or Willcom/Shaken 408R) and any Honda NSX model years 2007 and older.
so im assuming the 2002 and 2004 nsx bodies are legal per this text from the rules..?

I believe older means 2007 (10 years old currently) and anything that is actually "older" including the 2002 and 2004 versions are not allowed, but I'm not 100% sure. That's how I was told, but not actually by anyone that is involved with TCS.

What are the "rules" for people that are teaching at a TCS event? Can tech inspectors actually race in the events? Is this written anywhere? Thanks in advance.

I see in the rules that batteries must be less than 10 degrees above ambient temperature when checked prior to racing. Not to sound like a wise-guy, but is this Celcius or Fahrenheit? You know there is always that one guy that will say "well it's not in the rules." Just trying to avoid any and all questionable situations. Thanks.

been thru the battery volts and temp circus before. generally if you grab a pack and its warm in your hand you better check it. 10 deg. isn't much..and its usually Fahrenheit.

That is awesome.. Shame our track didn't pick that up.. Instead we have a Carisma RC box stock dtm class.
