Yo Fred, some nice changes to mix things up a little with motors and bodies. Only problem I have now is what do I run ? GT-1, GT-2, GT-3, F201 or RWD mini ? Geez, I think I have too many Tamiya's.

Since I'm mainly a GT-2 guy, anybody looking for '04 NSX bodies, regular and lightweight ?

I confirmed the date for the Md. race last nite with the powers that be. I guess they are waiting for 1 other to post the schedule.

HobbyWorks in Md. has about 20 pairs of B3 's in stock !!

19 turn f-1

What, do you have 20 of 'm stowed away somewhere, courtesy of you Hong Kong Hookup?

I was actually just thinking that I should pick up an NSX body for the TCS. MY 430 is looking.. errr... ragged, shall we say!

I for one would be interested in running the GT2 and Mini "Nationals rules" at the Regional event level if possible? (Sport Tuned, sedan body)

your thoughts?

I like 'em a-lot..

2 questions/suggestions....

Limits on the #'s on spec packs one can purchase?

How about Specing A's or B3's in GT2? They're readilly available and have great wear characteristics.

Not that many, but a few. Since the NSX will not be legal for GT-2 Nationals, no use keeping them around. However, my brother is planning to run GT-1 and he does go through a few bodies.......

Fred - will there be a list of what is considered a GT-2 National legal body ? I know the NSX is easy to say it's not, but what about the Porsche Carrera, Ferrari 430 and 360, etc. ?
