Hey Nutdriver, haven't seen you since the Ho-B-Max race back in 2015.

Been away from racing since then . Got a Euro truck to have some fun with some old friends. Dam....hooked again !

Looks like some players are going to be at the Access race ,looks like a couple of the Maryland gang will make the trip .

Looking forward to seeing some of the diehard tamiya racers , Dave ,Nathan, Rob.

I plan on GT2, GT Pro Spec, and F1. I haven't made reservations yet, but it seems that there are some hotels basically across the street.

Is it possible for you guys to tell me how the tamiya's belted tires perform? Say the b3 and c compound, a lot of people told me that these tires don't last very long so is there any alternative for practicing ? The usgt tire feels to soft to me and I don't know if it can be the alternative to the tamiya's tires for practicing on carpet and asphalt. Thanks!

C tires last forever. I ran 3 year old tires in Omaha and could not tell the difference between new at all.

If you didn’t already know...C tires are for carpet.

Zxcvg1t,
If you are asking about tires you plan to run at a TCS event, there is a matrix that shows what tire is legal for what race. TCS races do not always run Tamiya tires.

I read that already sir. Rules requires us to use type c tires and wheels on the carpet but doesn't require us to use tamiya's insert. Guess I have to ask people there for advice on insert. Thanks!

I just want to thank all of the Tamiya USA employee’s specially F. Medel for making the last regionals held at Tamiya USA track successful. You all did a great job for making it happen despite the very long day.

Thank you Fred for running the show yesterday. Tamiya USA never disappoints! 174 entries and lots of competition was had. The GT2 class was stacked with 5 full heats!
Here's the link to yesterday's results:

So I see 2 and 3 minutes mains? Is Tamiya going to limit entries for finals so 300 people don’t sign up?
