For the race February 23-24: Hobbytown USA/Hobbyplex I notice most are one day races is this like a normal 2 day race or 2 separate 1 day races?

For gt pro spec what hex's are people using 4mm , 5mm or 6mm? going to build up a gt prospec car I think it will be a pile of fun

Hopefully the new spec motors (fixed 21.5) will be back in stock soon. The first race of the season is a couple weeks away and the FT 21.5 is out of stock everywhere! I’m sure there was a mad rush and folks bought 5 but only run one 21.5 class

Part of the problem is that the same motor is being used for 21.5 classes at other tracks for spec classes other than the TCS.

there was stock of motors before TCS announced the motor rules, as soon as they were announced there was a run and they all sold out. At our track we use both the HobbyWing fixed timing and reedy fixed timing in our 21.5 TC class. Really not sure where else 21.5 TC fixed timing is being run.

It is not on the illegal body list, so I would say you are good to run it.

In Mini you may use anything we make available: M-Chassis Body sets

In GT-1 and GT-2: GT-1/2 Body Sets

What's the best?? Many racers like the Subaru BRZ. I personally like the Raikiri GT. In Mini a lot of racers seem to like the Mazda 2. In Japan, the TCS race organizers only allow the Miata and Mazda 2, but we let racers use any M-chassis body they have or can still get.
