I know.. it’s kinda odd that the rules allow novice cars have less restrictions.. I am sure I mentioned it before.. the Reedy 21.5 motor is not a good match for a TT02 with stock gearing.. why not use Tamiya motors?!? stick in a RZ and go nuts 😎

Yep, the torque tune has higher top end than the Reedy FT 21.5. 😂

That Tamiya RZ motor is pretty darn fast.... has crazy amount of torque, can push tall gears with ease.

The Pro Spec and F104 are both looking good for next weeks race at Larry’s Performance RC.. if any of the locals are looking at this thread.. will the track be open Friday/Saturday for practice?

Hey all, I am looking into participating in my first TCS this May. I have a TT02r with all Tamiya stuff to include universals, upgraded steering rack, metal suspension balls, and TRF shocks. Electronics are 540 silver can, 1060 speedo, Protek 140 servo and a Sanwa 493 receiver. I plan in racing in the GT Spec Novice class as I haven't turned a wheel in anger before. My car seems legal per the rules so that's good but I have a few questions. First, would a 5000mah NIMH pack work for this class or should I pick up a lipo? If Lipo, what size would best work with the car as far as balance and weight etc? Is there a body set that works best for racing or is it a matter of trying to avoid the ones with large heave wings and dingle berries? Lastly, do they hand out tires or make you run a spec or does what comes in the kits good to go?

Lipo is a safe bet 4000mah is just fine.
The 1060 is an ok speedo but if u can get the 1080 it's a bit better for settings and amp draw.
gearing with the stock motor u can go low like 64x29 with a fan on it.
body if u can get the rakiri get that if not something aero is the next best thing.
​​thin.weight isn't a big deal but a shorty lipo would help keep the car light this way u can move the weight around as needed.
the stick plastic shocks are good enough no need for shiny blue trf ones just use the kit with stock oil.
Hope this helps

If you are new to racing on a track, don’t worry about speed, worry about not crashing first.. Spec Novice seems a bit of a strange class to me.. in last weekends race the winner in Spec Novice would have finished in the top 10 for Pro Spec so please adjust your expectations accordingly.. as for tires in Spec Novice you are can run any Tamiya 24/26mm tires.. check with the track to see what they recommend..
