Will the pre-mount b3's work as well as the mounted tires with the aqua sweeps? or should I buy tires and inserts ?

The premounted tires are very good to be honest, you won't gain much if at all for most situations by using another insert. Do take notice that if you want a little more grip and less twitchiness, use a lower profile insert like the sweep regular ones. If you want the car in to be sharper (I think for B3 this is more important on most surfaces) and tire to last a little longer, use the premounted tires or taller inserts like sweep exp aqua or exp carbon.

B3 do not like as much air gap as other tires I noticed and just keep that in mind.

Does anyone know what the inserts' part number is for the premounted B3s?

Are we allowed to shave a bit of material where the Reedy motor solder tabs hit on the M07?

Let me answer that for you Cuda as I already talked to Fred. Yes, you, Dr. Bruce, Anthony, Tyree and Bill all can run F1 at Nats this year. Enjoy my friend as I will be migrating to a different class this year.

Hi everyone..

have people noticed that the newer m05's have poorer plastic quality? i compared my new m05 to an older one and the old one has MUCH better steering tightness compared to mine. (both have bearings in steering links)...unfortunatley our class does not allow any mods to the cars at all....any suggestions? whats a goos bang for buck small bearing to go in the steering thats super tight?

Wait, the TCS spec motor doesn't actually fit properly in the new car? I've seen others have problems with other motors and I just assumed that they only tested it with the TCS motor.

The individual class rules are down on the TCS racing web pages.

I found verbiage from 2015 stating that in GT1 class there is no weight limit if using a tub chassis (TA07). Is this still in effect? Even if the GT1 class is running 17.5 and not 13.5?

Yes. That rule is still in effect.

Use a .5 or 1.0 motor shim between the motor and motor plate. That will give you the perfect spacing for the Reedy Spec motor. It will also be good for other brands too.
