Going to the LHS today to order my brushless and Lipo 3600 as well.

So, anyone out there familiar enough with the brushless 13.5 motors to know which one to consider?

Stick with the Novak...many here locally have tried others with so so results. The Novak is the most consistent overall. We've been running the 13.5 here for about 1 1/2 years...awesome racing!

Congrats to Tamiya and its TCS F103GT class... For being dumb once again...
You bring stupidy to a new level....
Why have this class and not have parts for it?

I broke the battery "holder" and the part has been discontinued.
RC Rear Suspension Ball Mount Item #53273 (DISCONTINUED)

Rule 7 states no lighten the chassis..


And yet they talk about "more" bodies to be released for the F103GT.....

How about PARTS for this car?!?!?!?!?!?

I got rid of all my mini cooper stuff and since Tamiya won't/doesn't support the F103GT it will be gone shortly....

Anyone want an illegal F103gt car? Cheap?

Was wondering if anyone could clarify if running other brand rims in the 4wd offroad class will be allowed?I could see having to run the Tamiya tires,but the rims will more then likely be in short supply. Has anyone run the newer soft compound offroad tires before?

I would have to guess no on the use of other brands rims since that has never been allowed in the other classes of the TCS.

Dude lighten up!!!!
If you dont want to run TCS then don't
I'm just glad that Tamiya is giving the class a second chance
Maybe this means we will see a new body, new hopups , or maybe even a new chassis.
I don't agree with everything that goes on regarding TCS, but 95% of it works really well
And I am ecstatic with the motor and battery rules for '08
If you feel like you got cheated out of something, then sorry, but the rest of us are figuring out how to make it work

Marty,
Sorry for the delay, and keep dreaming
I would be happy to buy you a beer or six when we get to Trackside

The only thing that bums me out a little is that the TTG class didn't happen, as I won the GTO kit in the raffle at the Nats and was going to buy a few hopups and run it. Plus the Lambo body and wheels look way bitchin'
Other than that, all is well in the land of TCS
Oh, and if Santa could put a Detroit race date under the tree, that or at least an email reply from FMW that would work too

In their mini offroad class they made a compromise on tires because the 1/18th scale tires that Tamiya sell don't work well.I need to know a definitive answer on the rims.If they are hard to get then I want to know if they will compromise on the rims.We'll see.

501X wheels should not be hard to find. It's been awhile but I have ordered one set through the TamiyaUSA site when I first purchased my 501. There is another option with the black Durga wheels too.

I'm sure racenut and I would be interested in the spring rule too. Many 501X owners (raises hand) do use Associated buggy springs. I have kept the factory white springs but those are quite soft.

As you might have figured out I'm a BIG F1 fan and find it fustrating that TAMIYA won't support it's product. If they won't have parts for the F103GT then why not let us use other company parts. At least they have them available. I mean why bother having this F103GT if TAMIYA won't even support it?

BTW, I've tried emailing and a couple of phone calls and have yet to hear back from TAMIYA....

Any hint to what venues will be running the 4WD off-road buggy class?

Will Trackside still have the Rally class if they run the off-road buggy class?

Welcome aboard the fast lane hickmeister. I hope Laurel and the Coliseum in Frederick, MD gets a TCS race. 2008 is going to be off the hook!

Randy and I dusted off the TA05 and already strapped in the LRP TC Spec and LiPo. We got 4-13.5's to choose from. Might start off with the LRP 13.5 and end up with the Novak. The NSX had a big smile on it's face all day. Is is May 2008 yet? Laurel 2007 photos attached.

--Randy's dad and mechanic
