Unfortunately the TA01, TA02, TA02-W, TA02-SW and FF01 are already rebulit and shelf queen status so they will not be making any appearances. However, I do have some M2 slickes, radials and 26MM B tires.

Dragracer72nova - the FF01 was a front wheel drive version of the TA02. Same tub, steering linkage and other parts with a different gear box front and rear for front motor mount (similar to TA03-F).

Kevin,
Thank you for the info. I wasn't racing at the time when these kits were out. They are pretty cool, there was alot of interesting designs back in the day. I am curious to see how many cars will make the remain races? I have found a couple of the front drivers, I just do not know if I want to buy one yet?

Is it a certaintity that the Aliso track will close .... or is there still a glimmer of hope for us local folk that the new owners will not destroy the track ? Just curious, as this has always been a perk of living here in the AV.

That would be something you'd have to take up with the new owners. Maybe some kind of signed petition and business proposal on the monetary benefits to keeping the track.

Nothing will be for sale at the Aliso Regionals. Please plan in advance for your tires, wheels, and supplies.

So is the Vintage Class going to happen at all the venues, or was this just a special class for Aliso? There are several guys down here planning to run FF01's at Memphis if they have a Vintage Class there too.

yea, i have a couple FF01s and 2 TA03RS's gathering dust... the FF would be fun to try! kinda like a big mini.... sorta.

ditto what Madman said... is the Vintage class limited to T-USA, or at all the events?
