My first M was the 04 and the draw was the Alfa Giulia body. The 04 which was a pain to set up, albeit I had no idea what I was doing back then..

I started out with the 06 on asphalt, I did well.. now that we have carpet, not enough Minis show up. Next weekend at TCS that will change

I picked up an 05 V2 R and find the way the fwd drive, absolutely boring. The 06 is so much more responsive and lively to drive. The only thing that makes the FWD fun to watch was the old Mini Cooper body, which is now history.

Since the 07 is a departure from the prior chassis, I think it would have been neat if they had infact made it modular, where you could put the motor in front, back or even mid.

What were your lap times compared between the 05 and 06 on carpet?

It wasn't a full apples to apples comparison, The 06 had a Novak Ballistic 21.5 and the 05 had the TCS Sonic 21.5.

I was a whole second faster in practice with the 06.

I swapped motors and went back the following week to see if perhaps the Sonic was a slower motor. Unfortunately the track layout changed.

Thank you to the 702 Raceway crew for hosting the TCS race this past weekend. Awesome facility and just an overall friendly vibe!

Looking forward to coming back out.

Wait for it....two new TCS Legal Body sets coming May 10! One is a re-release Legal for GT-1 only this year. The second is legal for all GT classes.

I would be shocked if the FDR was exactly the same. I will know for sure when I arrive in Japan next week. I'm going for the Shizuoka Show, where the car will be shown. I will be meeting with the designer of the car, so I will know for sure what the final specs of the car will be.

Make sure to follow our facebook page for all the show photos and tidbits of the the new car.
