Gary is probably in a dark place right now due to his Packers being 1 and 7 while the Bears are winning the division....

I think he's actually a Bears fan...and now that he lives south of Chicago he'll feel right at home!

Anyone hear anything regarding TCS rules for 2006 as far as spec tires or GT3 motors? I'm really hoping for improvements on these to spice things up. Always a blast at TCS races anyway.

Group C Jaguar is "the bomb" Steve I'm going to have to get one of those...as soon as TAMIYA tells us it will be an OFFICIAL TCS CLASS!

Steve,

any parts for these comming in as well...ie clear bodies, replacement parts?
Paul

With the TA05 out now, Im sure there will be less TA04's running...still got mine...but what about the TB02's? Seems this is the forgotten car...with the exact same suspension...is anyone running an 02?

We have a few replacement tires and rims coming in for now, but I don't think Tamiya has release any spares for it just yet.

TA04 is still competitive for few, however, it's getting less and less attention. TB02 is still very fast and capable

787B Mazda from what I understand will not be brought into the US by Tamiya USA due to licensing issues I think? However, "special arrangement" can always be made

Herc... Juan finished 4th at Nats with his TB-02R. should have been finished higher, but his motor was hurting. He held TQ for a round also. car is very VERY capable. btw..its lighter than the 05 at least mine was.

Hey Steve, You may be making lots of special arrangements, considering your price is same or less than HK before shipping. At least from what I have seen on e-bay.

Any idea when they plan to release the 787B ?
