I didn't think "Dish" was that fast last year....j/k

Why no dish wheels? I thought they were the strongest. Nothing worse than mounting a set of tires and having a wheel break on one of the first few runs.

Does Canada allow lipos?

"Major Changes" sounds like a big investment vs adding a class.
Canada has a bunch of medium to Major changes vs what we do.

It's a new trend to be more scale-like, since we do race R/C model cars right?






MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

Nice pics, George. Are those 26mm rims or medium-narrow? Part numbers?

The boss made me put the white rims on my Calsonic, and all I had where the dishes. I may have to pick up some of those white spokes.

The white spokes are either Yok wheels or Rod painted the other.

I like the 18 spokes.
Do they seem stronger or weaker than most Tamiya wheels?

Wasn't sure if any of you noticed this:

TCS Race Rules
Rev. Nov. 29, 2005 Coming soon!

It's posted at the top of the TCS Rules page. Hopefully that means the new 2007 rules will be up soon.

Dan, I hand painted every single spoke

Haha just kidding. They are Ride wheels; they seem to be not as stiff as the Tamiya ones though.

I'm just about done with the 7Up Courage. All I need to do is finish the helmet and I'll snap some shots off.

I truley hope they are considering making the Orion/Peak Lipos legal, at least in GT1.

F103 GT's, just say yes to REALISM ! Rims are Tamiya medium - narrow black 6-spoke.
