Doc,
Looking forword to Trackside, I fly out of Reagan 0n 2/7 and get into Milwaukee @ 5pm. It should be interesting this year with the 13.5 Brushless in GT2 and we have some pretty good Hinkley Silver Can Horsepower for GT3 this year I will probably run my TB02R-SS for GT3.
When do you arrive?
Steve.

Doc obviously gets the word of the day emailed to him
Nope, it just comes naturally when you wheel a C55. Class-O

We'll see whose off-season Motor Program has been most fruitful...

When do you arrive?
I get in Friday morning around 7:30 -don't get back to DC from Dallas until late Thursday. Gonna be one early day.

Chris,

We are putting a big push for tamiya and this race and plan on incorperating the tcs classes into regular club races on saturday.

We have to be somewhat inclusive of other chassis brands for club racing but motor and battery requirements will be solely based on tcs rules. Ie lipo and brushless will be allowed and strongly encouragd and based on tcs guidlines and not roar. The specialty classes mini and f103 etc will have their own class.

Should be a great season. I have a couple tricks up my sleeve for track and racing surface.

Looking to be very tamiya and blue this year...lol!

Cheers

Jamie

Another thing to consider for the Rc Madness race...We have between 3-5 ta04 rental cars for club races and also for the regional.

If anyone has a son/daughter/wife/girlfriend/friend etc that they want to take down to tcs race or just to club race they can be reserved for the day.

The price is very reasonable and basically arrive and drive situation.

Cheers

Jamie

Great Jamie,. I started racing TCS type last summer with Greg at TT. I really enjoy the endurance racing with the F103. Hopefully we can combine GT and F103 into the same endurance races.Looking forward to another TCS place to race!

A chance to ride in style........I might have to give that some consideration. Still in the early planning stages, but August 8th is my off Friday, so the planets are in alignment.

Oh, and just in case you missed it.......ONE WEEK!!!!!

Bill,
What will you be racing this weekend @ Trackside? I will be running GT2 and GT3. Bruce will do the same. Looking forward to racing the Milwaukee Locals with the 13.5 Brushless and our Hinkley/Hickman Silver Can Horsepower in GT3 I will run a TA05 IFS in GT2 and a TB02 in GT3. I get into Milwaukee around 5pm on Thursday. Track opens @ 10am on Friday and closes at 8pm, What time do you get in?

6 more days!!!!!!!!
Steve.

Hey Steve,
I plan to run GT2 (13.5), F103GT, and Rally. I haven't touched the TA05 since Laurel and the F103 has been in a box since Memphis. We lost our local track last year.

I don't expect to roll into Trackside until 1:30pm or so Friday. Hopefully that will give me enough time to get the GTB programmed and run a few packs through each car.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again!

Barring any bad road conditions, Team Detroit should be unloading the transporter around the same time. I believe that 6 of us are making the trip.
GT2 and F103 for me

For those that haven't run the 13.5 before...hold on!! They have some stank. And can take a little time to get used to the torque.
