I forsee the largest class at the TCS would be F201, followed closely by GT1. Gotta love 4wd F1, but the Evo3 is kicking some @$$ at many races.

F201 was the largest class 2 weeks ago, wasn't it? I remember hearing that there were 36 entries that showed up and over 40 signed up. GT3 was big as well. There was a full c-main.

That's true, I wish I had a better ending.

F201 may look like the biggest class at the recent THQ tcs... but I believe GT2 still was the biggest with around 40~45 entries... (I may be wrong though... hmmm... but I remember GT2 having a full D-Main and 5 heats of qualifying)

Haha! I feel your pain. I got smacked around pretty good in the GT3 a-main. I started 8th, made it up to 3rd and got spun (hacked) and the whole field went by me. Oh well, we'll get 'em in August.

Hehehe GT1 better watch out! I found a setup with B2's that's pretty easy to drive and I can get around the track for 5 minutes WITHOUT rolling. Of course this was with a hurting 12Single and I was driving in cruise control

Oh well, more testing next weekend as the search continues.

For those that are attending, go to this site for more information on Hotels Rooms. Get them while they last MSRA's TCS HOTEL INFO

Who's coming? Should be a great race. We'll be having a regular club race the Saturday before so if you like to race come on. We'll be racing all types of kits not just Tamiya. Go to the MSRA thread for more information.

Okay, here's the dialed setup:

Same base setup from Reedy Race but using Tamiya White/Blue springs and TCS legal hopups.

1. Replace Acura NSX body with Losi Alfa
2. Replace ludicrous 8x2 KR with a 13x1
3. Replace Tamiya B2's with TakeOff CS-27's

Put the car down and have a blast hehe.

Seriously, I think I'll have better luck finding a set or two of B's than finding a setup for B2's. It's just not fun running around the track with B2's and hurting so bad. Sure the car can feel better when you make a correct setup choice, but it'll never feel 100% on if you know what I mean.

Maybe, since the Sorex are now offical kit tires for the EVO 3 S, they will make it legal for TCS...hmmm! Fred?

Sorex tires rule Would be nice just to race these nice cars instead of nursing them around the track
