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

You're welcome. I'm also going to run a Hobbywing, picked up the QuicRun WP Brushed. Looks like a good brushed ESC for the price, 80A, 7.4v 3.0A BEC, LiPo cutoff, aluminum heatsink and adj. braking options.

Does anyone know the finishing chassis order for the GT2 A main @ Tamiya USA quals? Just curious to see if any TA07's made the show.

Default Hosting a TCS race

Can anyone provide me with the contact information for organizing a TCS race. I expect it would be Fred Medel.

I am hoping to attend the TCS Finals this year. I ran at TB04R at Access Hobbies. My concern is will I be able to get a numerically low enough FDR to compete in GT2 at the Aliso Viejo track? I can get an FDR of 3.58:1 out of the TB04R. Thanks.

If you mean the March Regional at Tamiya America, top 3 were TA07's.

Yes, Fred Medel is the contact person for organizing a TCS race. They have certain criteria (like how much Tamiya stuff is sold through the track) but Fred can give you all the details. And if it is an indoor carpet track, there is a special clause that you have to buy my TRF 101W chassis with the 180mm double front carbon arms to run F1 class.

It's a good car. Top three (for sure) at 2017 Nats in GT-2 were also TA07's and I am sure there were more in the A main. I tried mine at TQ last Sunday for two battery packs on carpet and already quick with it. Will run the 20-May TCS race at TQ with the same car I ran at the March Regional with a few set-up changes only.
