4th sucka... 6th, 3rd, 3rd

Also I think overall Juan was 2nd and Wally was 3rd

Patrick 1st, 1st, dns
Juan 2nd, 7th, 1st
Wally 4th, 2nd, 2nd

Had a blast this weekend... I'm burnt to a crisp. I'm sitting at my desk radiating heat! My number 1 lesson learned this weekend: It's all about the tires!!

i was reading the tcs rules. what are the " 2 door sedan bodies "??

"The GT2 class will be limited to 4 door touring car bodies and 2 door sedan bodies only. Sports car bodies are not allowed. Same TCS Finals rules as 2006 apply. "

like last year.. the GT2 class at nationals will allow you to run ANY body except for NSX (any model year) and Ferrari (360 modena, and 430). the rest are legal.

Fred did an awesome job announcing all weekend!

I thought Saturday was a bit long, but Fred made the adjustments and then I felt rushed on Sunday haha.

Chris, it's too bad you had to miss Sunday as your cars were awesome. I need to talk to you about how to get some motor outta my car. I had nothing in terms of power all weekend.

Fred, Gary and the Tamiya crew. Awesome job on the race this weekend. The B main bumps was a great idea (because I had to use it). 7 runs on Sunday was hectic. Between Nemo and I, my motor lathe is still smoking. Looking forward to the nats end of August and then to more Tamiya racing in '08 with whatever you come up with !

Must have been the "Hans Device" he was wearing. Allowed him to pull more G's on the sweeper.

Looking forward to TCS national. Where can we get the 23t motor? Usually how much is it to buy from Tamiya? I am new to this since this was my 1st time to TCS.

Thanks Yellowtaro, I used up all the energy in the car for that pass and it went dead after the second lap.

How can I get the video clip from you ?
