Actually I don't know what to be excited for on this trip sooo many things.
I think with the mini class, black canned motors and the seemingly stacked field, that might be the highlight of the event!

Wow pretty quiet here....

It depends on power. Usually with mabuchi I have had good luck with tamiya black inserts. When I goto 27t or 19t I usually like HPIs. In the morning run yellows, noon run reds and if the back end gets really loose like later afternoons I might run reds front and yellows back.
Oranges can be a good in-between compound greens in front if there is wayy too much front bite. Usually you can get by with yellows and reds.



So who is going to be the TCS Fremont reporter?
Good luck to all the TCS maniacs....

Why do you guys call it Mabuchi? the Mabuchi motors were horrible. And any of the good motors I ever had were Johnsons. But they are all Silver Cans.Just wondering. Gary and Lim call them Mabuchis, and I just don't understand why.

Is it Tam-eye-a or Tam-eee-a.

There is much debate on the subject my friends pronounce it both ways. Is it wrong, is it right, mostly a label and I know what they are talking about, either way regardless.

As far as the motors go both are available. I am happier saying Mabuchi more than Johnson. Johnson well... has some overtones. Maybe the Japanese translation for Johnson = Mabuchi, with the same over tones...

And finally maybe it is a way we can create misinformation about the subject forcing guys to buy Mabuchis when they hear the faster guys only talk about that motor. So yes I run Mabuchis. . . wink. . .wink . .

Usually I go by mabuchi or silvercanned.

Although Mabuchi is more fun to say.

Alot of guys have had great performance from the mabuchi's. The difference between the two is a different manufactor I think. I always call them mabuchi's or silver cans. Tamiya is correctly pronounced Tam-eee-a. I was told this buy someone I know who visited the japan head quarters. Either motor in them or how it is pronounced. Tamiya products are alot of fun & so is the tcs.

Default TA05 spool and 415

Hello,

Does anyone know if the TA05 spool outdrives are legal to use on the 415 for GT1 TCS racing? I broke all my delrin ones and have been using the 05 ones with good results. Thanks.

is it Tam-eye-a or Tam-eee-a? You can give Tamiya USA a call and listen to how they answer the phone, that'll probably give you the correct pronounciation I pronounce it Tam-eee-a, but I think really either way is fine...

I have been in the Tam-eee-a generation, which should not effect my past and present Speedtech orders...

did I mention I stayed at a holiday inn express. . .
