You can't use the F201 shocks on your mini because they are not specific for the mini. The f201 shocks are only specific for the f201. You can use any other Tamiya Touring car oil filled shocks ie the TRF shocks or the plastic oil filled shocks. besides I don't think the f201 shocks would work on the mini anyway.

Rule 10 says "any".....

10. Any Tamiya plastic or aluminum damper may be used.

Then there's rule 17:

17. If a driver finds a loophole within the rules, that exploitation will be deemed illegal.

I'm in for GT1. It's been a steep learning curve practcing with the 9x1 but the 19 should feel slow by comparison.

I'll have my MX400 with me all weekend. I was having some glitching issues but I switched over to PCM and no more problems.

Here are the most important rules: This is a race for sportsman drivers, you are not allowed to be sponsored in any way, that would be cheating.

Driver Eligibility
“Factory Team” drivers (drivers who are, or have ever been, employed or supported by a factory, manufacture or distributor as part of a factory racing team) are not allowed to compete for prizes or awards.

Addendum:
"Factory Team" drivers (drivers who are, or have ever been, employed or supported by a factory, manufacture or distributor as part of a factory racing team, this includes sponsorship that entails monthly salary and paid airfare/ accommodations to racing events) are not allowed to compete for prizes or awards.

If the host site deems it necessary, they may also bar these types of drivers from participating. This will depend whether the host site believes that sponsored drivers may take away the spirit of the event being for the average hobbyist. It is further at the discretion of the host site to determine which racers fall under these criteria. Tamiya America can not possibly know every individuals claims of being a sponsored or factory driver and therefore needs the judgment and discretion of the host site to weed out the factory sponsored driver that does not meet the average hobbyist criteria.

Host sites must be careful not to confuse racers that get a deal from their friends that are employed or work for so and so “motors R us” or a fly by night battery matcher as being sponsored. There will always be racers who will try and get a deal of some kind. This can not be avoided and therefore we ask for a balance as much as possible.

We ask that the hardcore factory sponsored driver not participate. An example of a racer that Tamiya America would not allow to compete would be the Jimmy Jacobson’s and David Jun’s of the RC industry. These types of drivers are clearly supported by a factory and would not be eligible to compete as Tamiya America supports their racing careers in all the above mentioned points.

Not sure, but I think #5 might get you....

5. Any Tamiya Hop-Op Option and spare part is allowed as long as it is used in the way it was designed, and on the vehicle it was designed for. Except for the GT1 class, it is strictly forbidden to cut, mill or lighten the chassis. It is strictly forbidden to re-engineer or modify the cars in any way other than with Tamiya Hop-Ups. (This applies to all classes)
