2. Are the stock tires any good? hop up tires are not in stock. Do you think the mini slicks (#53222, not 60D) be legal?
Thanks.
i have not run mine yet, but was confused by the instructions of the shocks as well... when you build the fronts, there is a spacer to shorten the internal length... kinda funky, but it worked in the end. i think the lengths are due to them fitting the buggy version of the chassis as well.

not sure on the kit tires, really... i doubt the mini tires will be legal, tho. on asphalt, the original tires might work, but seem like a pretty hard compound.

If you're going to insult me, at least get the spelling and punctuation correct.
Spelling? If you care to read my post, the date is clearly "1992". S&N's did not come into exsistance untill 1993...putz

As far as punctuation, I'll give you some "punctuation!" in the sweeper in a couple of weeks......

Does anyone know if the TamTech GT-01T Wild Boar truck is legal for the TamTech class?

But the way you put it was as a slogan for your current home track, not the track from 1992 which for the record no-longer exists! Moron....

Keep it up and I'm sure we can find a door jam for your car. Maybe under the driver's stand by the storage area

Hi Guys,

Sorry to interrupt, however, if anyone is interested in a 3 battery pack old TA05R with quite a bit of upgrades (my personal car) feel free to PM me to inquire the details

Will ship to your hotel (or where your staying) free shipping.

...and now back to your regular TCS conversation. Good luck to everyone that's running at the nats this year.

Steve Wang

The TCS racing series is intended for the general hobbyist. Factory Drivers as stated by the 2007 Season rules are not permitted to race the series. With that said we will be making sure, as best we can, the GT-2 and Mini classes are filled with racers that fit into the general or enthusiast racer profile. We are aware there are some drivers that fit into a profile that is in between a Factory Driver and general enthusiast profile. For those drivers that are in this limbo state we will be asking them to only enter the GT-1 class, as this is the more skilled driving class. When signing up for the TCS Finals please look deep within yourself to see where you fall in. We know most of you and your connections with manufactures. If we feel that you are racing a class that you shouldn�t be in we will ask you to move to GT-1.
