Neil,
Yes, Bruce and I are planning to come to the race on June 27th,
I hope are cars work there as good as they have been working @ Scotty's and Toys for Boys. They are a real pleasure to drive when you are winning!! We hope to give you guys a good race this summer in June and August?

Steve

I hope everyone signed up for the June TCS. I hear there is a cut off date with all entries going into a bingo wheel for a drawing.

I'm signed up for my first TCS. This should be interesting. After Reedy I may start running the 414 all the time to practice. I'm thinking about using a Ferrari body. Is there a good comparison for the Ferrari? Does it handle like a Stratus, Alpha, etc?

jon

i could probably be totally wrong on this... but the comparisons are... when the nsx is compared with the ferrari, just like when the stratus is compared to the alpha..... then the nsx is like the stratus... stable.. planted... while the ferrari is like the alpha.. more steering.. a little bit more twitchy. im sure people will correct me on this. does that make sense? but the tamiya bodies behave very differently from the protoform/losi bodies.. so dont set up your car with an alpha thinking it'll drive like it has a ferrari on there.

I was planning on spending all day Saturday @ Tamiya. I got the diff and solid pully so I could get used to brakes on that that track I sold my Pan Car to a SoCal guy so I have to stop by there afterwards. I'm thinking about getting a hotel down the street from the RC Heat race and just stay the night for Sunday.

I want to remind everyone that the TCS Race in Memphis this June will be awesome!!! We have one of the nicest mobile parking lot setups I've ever seen, AMB r/c system running R/C Scoring Pro (which works awesome btw... unlike Jlap ). There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance, Hobby Town is by the track and there's even a hotel across the main road that's easilt within walking distance. You can find more information on our TCS Rce thread here on rctech in the Memphis area forums. You can also find info on our website www.msra-racing.com or click the link in my sig.

Talking

Gary-
If you decide to go to the June race, I already have a room and a rental car if you want to split costs.
Plus that guves you more time to rag me about how much faster you are...
