Hi Guys,
I've never put my car on a scale before. Will the TA05 need weight added to meet the minimum weight requirement? If so, what do I use? Those 1/4 oz wheel weights? I guess I better pick up a scale here pretty soon!

Last year I ran a TA05 with the hard arms (short arms) and IB4200s, and was at weight without a body! But if you run the LW suspension you may have problems making weight.

Your better to add the class online. If you got your confirmation already, e-mail Gary back and let him know. I remember seeing no signs ups at the track so better to be safe and proactive.

With only 9 Tamtech Porsches signed up so far, we'll have to run twins to see 20 on the track at the same time!

F103 looks to be bigger than any regional race (16 and counting). That's going to be fun to watch!

Something tells me the Tamiya track will have slightly better traction than the Memphis parking lot. But next year.......

I dont remember identifying a specific part of your anatomy, but since I did say air, then I guess we can go with head(upper not lower)
