Subaru BRZ R&D is still one of the best handling bodies from Tamiya...

Are you coming to 702 TCS?

GT-1 replaced by Euro Truck as a trip wining class. I am sure that is going to help promote sales for the TRF 420.

Kinda surprised by that choice as well but,
last yearís Nationals had 5 cars in GT1. Tamiya will make up more than enough sales with the Euro truck to make up any lost sales of the 420.

also if you look at what the new releases are most o. TT01 and TT02 chassisís I guess it makes some sense.

3 years ago I won GT1 at 702..... it was a real battle between me vs umm me lol. Past two years had between 3 and 5 racers as well. So the decision makes sense..

Looks like another great turnout for the 2nd TCS of the year. Good car count in all the classes.

Golddust used an M07 this weekend at The TCS at 180 Raceway in Middle River, Md and he had no problems with the Ride 33's!
