I was nice to see so many people come out for the race. Here are some links for the results with videos and some other photographs.

Rog the biggest hack was the 11th hour spec tyre change to Ride 33 shore that no one had tested before.

not sure about the hacking I was busy trying to hold my line! I thought I was doing good until I got lapped but it was all good. And thanks to Flagstaff Hobbies that was there racing and had some extra mini parts that 702 didnít have in stock for my M07 that broke during practice.

Just got home from the TCS races at Access Hobbies in Springfield, OH. Giving credit where credit is due, I want to call-out Joe Ruggles and crew for maintaining a tight program. Things went well from when the doors opened on Friday until I walked out of the door yesterday. I don't recall the final count on Euro Trucks, but I believe that there were 33 at one time. The F1 battle had Rob King, Howard Lo, and Bang (sorry if I misspelled and I won't butcher your last name) setting the pace. Good facility, good people, good racing.....and all free of entry fee. What more can you ask for?

702 Mini A hack, FTW. He shouldn't feel as good as he does about winning. Not a good pic, video grab I believe.

That wasn't me.....LOL,I was having a tough time trying NOT to traction roll my F1, I guess I sauced the tires a little too much...but overall it was a GREAT EVENT and great place to race. 5 hours drive from Chicago was not fun but it was a great weekend fun of RC and hanging with some old faces and meeting new faces. ACCESS HOBBIES does a great job for keeping the time and schedule and we were all back at home within a reasonable time. Will definitely come back again next time.

BTW thanks TAMIYA for the great door price............I did not have a great main runs, but winning that grand price I felt like I won the world championship already, LOL.

So I noticed this morning that the M08 now has a June release date (along with a smattering of hop-ups).

Is this going to be a legal car for regionals once released, or just for Nats?

Not that clear either but you can see the movement.

now...i am planing to go to the big show, the FINAL @ HTUSA Omaha. I read thru the whole rule book about the final.............is that true that I can only pick racing either GT1, GT2 or M-class, pick 1 only? I cannot race GT1 and GT2 or GT2 and M-class? I don't see that listed but everyone told me it is the same old rule for every final........I just want to confirm.

If I can pick only 1 class (ticket class) to race on that weekend, I can still race F1 and Euro truck (non ticket class) along with the GT2 that I prefer to race..? I don't want to spend the whole weekend there to sit most of the time and race only 1 class....thank you.

Only can run one Japan trip class for nationals. You can run as many other non-Japan classes (F1, GT Pro spec, euro truck, etc.) as you want.

I hope that's the case. I tried finding last year's rules (no luck), but seem to remember that it was really wonky as to what you could run at the nationals. Along the lines of you could run one ticket class, but could ONLY run Eurotruck or Prospec as a second class. I had bought an F1 with intentions of a second Nats class so as to not make the trip to only run one car. Unless I totally misinterpreted.

Glad to hear (REALLY HOPE) the rules are what Dan said above

Pretty sure you can't run as many classes as you want, never could before
1 trip class, if you qualified by running that class at regionals and 1 secondary class if I'm correct.

I've seen at least one who have done 3 classes at nationals. If what you said is the case, then it should be enforced.
