For GT2, do one-ways tend to be used?

Also, do I need to buy a personal transponder for TCS or are they provided, or rented or something?

Tamiya's spool had just started to come out recently for the TA05 so one way was the popular gear to use. A personal transponder is a must for any racing activity now a days but TCS is also one of the few organizers still providing transponders and like the race it is free, but it will surely add weight to your car.

Ummmm, that does not even cover the first can of paint..... With a brother, new teammate, and now girlfriend ready to run her first TCS in Fremont, I think my painting schedule is a little booked right now.

Yes, I can. Actually, better deal: brandy new, completely painted and stickered fully TCS legal NSX body with molded wing (or WANG as they say in some parts). I don't need it as I run the short chassis now. Metallic black, very nice. Yours for $30 and I'll deliver it to the Aliso track on the 28th (or 29th if they don't open for practice on Friday). Possible swap for your unpainted new body if it's one I want. Let me know at [email protected]

I am still trying to decide what I want to do for a body. I am either going to run an NSX or a Nissan 350z. I am not sure if I should get a body I can use for Nats or the best body I can use for the regional race. Hell, I might color an NSX black with a few associates and the number on it and run that.... My paint budget will be higher for Nats though!!!!

Like there is anything there that has much value to others. Come on Kevin, you know that our Tamiya's have much more personal value than monetary value.
Kinda like a black can motor!
