Fred should be back in the office Tuesday. Give him a few days to get through his emails, get things sorted out and I am sure he will let us know what the program is.

Many people know the person that threw the motor, I think he even admited it in public. But to my knowledge he has not apologized to the people he nealry sent to the hospital.

So he didn't got punnished, he even competed at regional this year and won his class. And he even got all the glory that goes with winning. Oh and he thinks he should be a shoe in to win a trip to Japan. Go figure.

Wow....its gets worse and exaggerated more and more each time..

Apologies were sent .....Fred was informed by me personally. No one was nearly sent to the hospital or close to being hurt. Story is out of control Troy and Chris, no need to make personal attack and embellish things.

Rolling a motor onto the track (while others were racing) is not sending anyone to the doctor, but my poor sportsmanship was uncalled for and apologies were sent to Tamiya and Fred. Nothing was malicious or intentional to anyone. I have no hard feelings or dislike for Keith or any Canandians.

PS....Never had a thought or did I ever express anything for a shoe in ....Racing is fun and a hobby to get away for a few hours from the stress of work.

Let have a great final race at the Tamiya Track.


Good luck to all.

Hey Guys,
For those of you who have tried both, and are willing to share your experience, which inserts do you like better in your B3s:

Much More Soft or RP-MS????

Is one better than the other at a given temp?

I have two extra sets of B3s and I have both type of inserts, but I'd hate to waste 2 sets of B3s just to test them

[QUOTE=Turbonium;3555272]i was kind of thinking along these lines, except that unless the racer is local, it cant completely be Tamiya's fault, as they dont really have a good idea of how capable the driver is, without any experience. /QUOTE]

I personally race Mini cooper because I love the class,and think running GT classes to me is redundant. I regularly race with racers in the touring car class that according to Tamiyas rules should be running GT1 only and so happen to be some of the fastest guys in GT1. Should I be made to run GT1 because of my skill level? I would be highly disappointed if that were the case. I have no sponsors and know in my heart if I put my mind to it, could do very,very well in GT1 or 2 at nats. I have no desire to run these classes. But according to Tamiya ,I should be left to somehow convince myself to run GT1 because my running Mini would not be fair............All this brought to you by the unclear rules for these classes.Racers fault? Uh.......no.

My class decision has been hanging on the shoestring by budget is on.

So to look deep within myself you might find a dust bunny, an echo and a ebay paypal account. . .

Looking forward to one last year of fun at TCS. It just won't be the same at another track.
