I will miss that part for sure. Hobbytown Usa Fremont has been awarded the stop and I must give them my best wishes.

When is the SIR regional race gonna be?I need to go somewhere to qualify for Nats. I here its a cool place to race!
that sucks thats one less TCS race for me next year i guess its down to SIR and Aliso then.

Chris, sounds to me like there's going to be a TCS event in NorCal run by HTUSA Fremont. That's a race I never got to attend. Is there some reason I should avoid it this year?

Hopefully, the person I talked to in Cincinnati was uniformed. I enjoyed that race. They had the track open late on Friday and Saturday for the drivers, and they had a decent sale on Tamiya parts throughout the weekend. I just went to the Tamiya sight and the TCS home. On that page on the left side it said "2007 Schedule," but when I clicked on it the 2006 schedule came up.

There are six races, not including the championship. Two of the six are in CA and one in WA. Last year there were eight before the finals. Hopefully, it's not complete. If it is complere, I guess they are really cutting back or giving preference to the west coast. Along with their non-appearance at the hobby show, there are a lot of disappointed Tamiya supporters. Not inluding Cincinnati or more in the South suprises me. I don't even live in Ohio. There was a good turnout. Too bad.

Before you bad mouth Tamiya.
They can change anything at anytime, that meens add or subtract races. Also remember that Touring car is slowing down compare to say 3 years ago.
with the TRF501X and the popularity of the Dark Impact I wonder if there is going to be a similar thing for Off road. They do race Buggy at TCS worlds.

Sounds great!

We hit a few of the local BBQ places, hit BBKings at night and another one near there that was like a 50s garage/diner.


Wow no Ohio. I don't think Tamiya contacted them. I got the same response that MD got from the guy working there.


What happened to the Doc M War Wagon?

oh well back to my vacation... times up!

doc...

the last two TCS events i went to at Fremont were run by john hicks. Traction was awesome, the program was ran professionally and very smooth and the announcing was good. (the only hiccup was mother nature making her presence felt) now that john hicks is at another venue, im not sure if they have someone who could do as good a job as john. thats why i won't be attending this year. its unfortunate since all my racing next year will solely be TCS events. see you at SIR and aliso.

yeah, Cinci is a big loss to the series. I am hoping that Fred and company can come up with the resources to put it back on the schedule. My event count is currently at 1 if there is no Cinci event.

Cincinnati was a good race for the locals and others in the Midwest. They had the track open untill 10 or 11 on Friday night and 9 or 10 on Sat. Tamiya sent one tech guy, awards and T-shirts. I can't see that as a great expense. As a sportsman type driver I enjoyed it as compared to Trackside. Scotty does a great job and is one of the nicest track owners I have ever met. He brings great enthusiasm to the race and praises everyone. The race there is run like a national race with triple "A" mains. That's fine and many drivers support it. But for the final day of racing, most drivers run one main and sit and wait for the raffle. If I remember correctly, they don't allow bump ups. I think they should. On the final day, it would give the guys in the lower mains a goal or incentive. As a driver I know this going in, and I accept it. Is that the original TCS philosophy? I think Tamiya sends two or three tech guys there, which they need.
