Thanks.

Not quite sure. It all seems so far away. I had fun running in the EJRODandLING Show last year

Well the trio is now a duo. Unless you join the group.

You might have to hit refresh on your browser. I did.
How sad... well the rules anyway.

The GT series seems redundant. 19t and 27t seems too close powerwise.

The F201 would be cool to have a 19t.

Sad to see that Rally was not given another shot. Seems whenever a class starts getting momentum.... it gets the Axe. Granted rally in usually only a TCS class, well so is mini.

Oh well let the spending begin! ! !

Coop the Rally class actually declined in attendance this year. I think TA wants it to succeed but if noone comes out how do you keep it in the program? We had a huge Rally program up here and it was very quiet when regionals came around

From what I saw in some of the results at Wis, Penn, and TA it looked like there were at least 20 at each venue. As far as races this year the only race that did not have enough for Rally was Utah. I looked it up so you didnt have to.

What more does TA need to see to make a successful class? To start any class it only takes time. I guess patience is not a virture but selling kits is.

The rally class is awesome. There were enough guys running it in teh Bay Area to make it a regular club racing class this past year. My only complaint is that the tires wear so fast. I go through 2 sets in a race day. It's still an awesome class. The thing that I find really odd is that Tamiya has released several new rally kits this year! Now the class is cancelled.

Where did you find the attendance numbers? I only found the TA race #95. I am going by others words here. Rally has died up here and we usually had 15 cars on a race day. When I heard it didn't suprise me.
I agree psycho it is a fun class and miss running it as it is a stress relief from Sedan

My son is going to be bummed. We just took his car up to the track last night and started to do some practice for Rally on the off road track, and now the class is no more. Well, the year after the LeMans class was killed, we still ran it at our venue because there were enough for a class. It wasn't eligible for any prizes except medals if I remember correctly.

19T GT1...What the heck is Christenson going to do with that huge alotment of 4 gauge coat wire he uses to wind his own motors? Man, some kid in a sweatshop is going to lose his jub just from John not needing that big wire anymore

I think the F201 chassis rule is a good idea though. But the best thing would be to introduce a graphite chassis with the area under the motor milled out to open that area up while maintaining scructural ridigity. While I am glad they didn't do 19T for F201, 23T would have made it unique.

GT3 still exsists! Whoo-hoo!

There's still a mini class?? I was expecting this class to be eliminated.

G, it's still a prototype, I think. Production hasn't started yet, has it?

Ahhh Mr. Funny Man, good to hear from you!

I was a bit bothered by the new GT1 rule, that being said you can certainly tune a 19T to be interesting these days

I wonder if we can have the TCS at Tamiya more than just two regionals. That would be cool.
