What was Jim Bishop driving? If 414 that means all 414's on the podium
Mike,
Thanks,
But we sure aren't helping Tamiya's marketing strategy. Maybe if they provide us all with a bunch of Evo3 S.E.'s.

Big thanks to Scotty. His voice makes us all feel faster.

Rtypec thanks for letting me run your motor, and thanks Joe for the ring adjustment. Thanks DJ for all of your hard work. With the little practice I had I was surprised to find I set the fastest lap of the weekend with that little rocket.

Madjack that was a blast battling in GT3. Excellent drive to take the win.

Famgio, I enjoyed it also...big fun! I was surprised how quick the GT3's ran in the main (4 racers with 17 laps) The class ended up being a very entertaining

I'll bet we see the entry numbers rise again in August.

Nice lap in Mod....14.4? Thats getting down there

Great race everyone, congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all competitors for making this a great TCS race, definitely the largest. Here's the final turn-out numbers for those stat minded individuals.

Total Racers - 120
Second Entry - 54
Total entries - 174

To answer the GT1 podium question, I believe Jim Bishop was driving an Evo. III.

Just to get an idea from all your F201 drivers out there, what necessary hop-ups are really needed for the car?

You have them Neil the tires!

You kinda showed everyone what a bone-stock F201 can do, but what I would recommend for ya is the lightweight diff set. No more panic attacks when that diff screw breaks.

The majority of the GT classes were driving TA04's and Evo3's.

And the winners are:

GT1 - TRF414M
GT2 - TA04
GT3 - TA04
Rally - TA03R
M-Chassis - M-O3

In GT1 there were the same number of 414M's and Evo 3's, 12 each. TA04's out-numbered them all, simply because the 04 can compete in all 3 GT classes.

I was cheering for the TL01's in the GT3 class, TA04's have won every TCS GT3 class this year and I was hope to see something different. Though I was happy to see John C. finally get a win, if anyone deserves it he does. Congratulation John.

Does anyone have a starting setup for the TAO4 for meduim traction asphalt?

Does anyone have a new/good condition TAO4 they want to sell for me to run the TCS race here in Memphis on July 13th?

Thanks Gary for your post.

Was surprised that the TA03R was still running even in Rally.
