Hey RTO, I think I might seriously follow you to GT-1. I just never added up the numbers like postman just did. I was probably in denial!

$88 is the full compliment, but yeah, I didn't even think about the body....

Yeah, no NSX's for GT-2. I've got an old Ford Escort 2 body I was thinking about running myself...

RTO, if the black cans are $15 each and the battey packs are $29 each, how much can you buy for $88???

So far the breakdowns are. . .

F1 - 2
GT1 - 42
GT2 - 38
M03 - 22
PC - 4
TTS - 10
TTU - 3
= 121 vehicles (Excel is Great )

It is good they are reducing costs on motors and batteries.
What would be really interesting is if they limited the tires to 3 sets. . .

I think that limiting tires is a great rule.


Maybe for Next year.

Rules changed for the better. 2 batts and motors , keep it cheaper for everyone else.
True, but it's also possible that they are having a hard time coming up with enough black can motors and 2-year old stick packs- - - minimum 120 of each needed at this point

Hi Guys,

For those of you that are still looking for:

Tamiya spare and hop-up parts

Tamiya TCS racing tires, inserts and rims are back in stock

Tamiya bodies (mostly GT-1 bodies are left)

We have just a little bit of everything left and hope to have more stuff arrive before TCS national weekend For those of you coming from out of town, we can ship your package to the hotel you're staying at.

August 12th this Saturday, we will open from 11am-7pm so those of you that practice at Tamiya in the morning will have time to make it to the shop to get what you need.

August 17th Thursday before the nationals, I will be staying late until 10pm at night for anything last minute that you guys might need. Feel free to call ahead of time to check inventory status before making the trip. We'll be closed Friday August 18th (hey, I need practice too! )

Thanks guys

Steve Wang

Martin I'll be down, I see Ling, Corey and Mike are reg'd but not sure on the rest. I am sure we'll see Rod it would be good to see Beale and of course the Green Lantern will be racing right Fred.........

Steve looks like a few of us will be out Thursday, Dougie Fresh wants to come by and see the shop and say hi also.
