For the TCS final, which motor wind are we running in GT2, a 17.5 or 21.5? I see both listed as possibilities in the rules.

Tamiya has plenty of bodies to choose from and I myself like the Raikiri body light weight.<br />
None of the Tamiya bodies will feel exactly the same as the protoform bodies, but try using the option wings will get you close to how it feels in comparison to the Protoform bodies.<br />
Just my 2$

At the finals:
Is euro truck a handout motor, or bring your own torque tuned?
Mini is handout motor this year, correct?
Is there a central place I can look for info besides the rules? I feel bad asking basic questions here.

At Nats, all three trip classes (GT-1, GT-2 and Mini) will be handout motors. 13.5 for GT-1, 17.5 for GT-2 and 21.5 for mini. Euro Truck is BYOM.

Hi all, I'm going to my regional TCS for the first time this year. I read the 2018 rules a few times over and it's still not clear to me whether non-tamiya brand brushed ESCs are allowed in the Novice class. I have a 60A Hobbywing brushed ESC that I want to use so i don't have to buy a Tamiya one. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I had the same question, because I couldn't find it in the rules and am a little leery of running a TBLE-02 ESC due to the lower 1.5 amp rating on the BEC. So, I asked Fred M. directly at Tamiya. He said that for GT Spec Novice class, "You can use any ESC you like."

Cheers, Thompson
