+1 on a great time. My son and I really enjoyed coming out to the Tamiya track for our first TCS race. Kudos to Fred and the Tamiya crew for a professional and efficient race program.

The logistics for tech, on-deck driver staging was really streamlined. No more need for having a pit person assist with tech, haggling over stand position. Well thought.

Me and my son had a good time yesterday. Thank you for Fred, Tamiya and all crews. I will keep purchasing Tamiya products to support them. New Euro truck race looks very fun and my son really wants to buy them. Good Job!!!

Exclamation TCS at Tamiya

Congrats to all for exciting racing, and tip my hat to all podium winners. Track conditions really put to test finding the right setup for the mains.Thank you Fred and all tech crew and sales crews for all your hard work it does not go unappreciated! But maybe a small suggestions on putting a limit on the quantity per part per person so everyone has a shot at some great deals
Just my 2$

Final note: The Tamiya track will be officially closed from April 7th to April 19th for major restoration of the track and repair. All in preparation for CTS and Reedy. This is great news for all but unfortunately means no running there for two weekends. Lots of work ahead but it will be great to see Tamiya Raceway back to its First class racing conditions and I'm sure all you racers will be too.
Thank you Fred and Brian for making this a reality!

Thank you Fred, Max, and all the tamiya crew for this past weekend's TCS race. We all had a great time racing and talking to friends.

Fred, sorry my transponder died and hand counting my race.

Prepping for TCS at 702. Rules state carpet tracks are exempt from premounts.



Im planning on using the recommended 54256 Type C.

Which Tamiya rim is recommended? 53471?

Also what insert can I use?

Thinking of putting my TCS ready M06R on the auction blocks, but wanted to give first opportunity here if anyone is interested. Car has spec super grip premount tires and wheels, hard fluorine coated 20T pinion, aluminum rear uprights, aluminum steering set, aluminum steering post, aluminum steering rod, aluminum motor mount and gearbox plate, aluminum rear damper stay mount, aluminum servo saver horn, and Reedy 21.5 motor. Just needs servo, ESC, radio, receiver, and battery. Car is in great shape. It also includes a beat up Nissan Silvia body painted like Brian Oconner's car in 2 fast 2 furious. I have a brand new body and custom decal set if you want to paint a new one.

PM me if you are interested.

Any 24mm Tamiya rims are good to go. I used Sweep Carbon black medium inserts.
