Well, at least I'm on the West Coast now- just in San Diego instead of Aliso- and everything made it through OK. I always hold my breath until both cases appear...

Granpa, I may have a spare pair of Type A 60D's, pretty sure I packed some unglued ones. Worst case is you can use some of the ones that are already glued up- most of them only have a run or two on them and the inserts are meant for Aliso. You've got my e-mail, let me know and I'll be there early Saturday.

Like Marty said- it's all about the relationships. Let's have fun this weekend and be sad only when it's over.

As Brad stated, it is really all about the relationships and long lasting friendships that TCS has allowed to develope.

Thanks again, TAMIYA!

This weekend will hopefully be alot of fun, but it will also be somewhat sad .

Thanks to TAMIYA and the vision of TCS and all the folks I have come to know and call friend in the end, you too Larry.

I am somewhat stoked for a bit of a party atmosphere this weekend. Let's ALL do our part to make it a great weekend.

Let's make it a great one! If you can make this race, you can make history!

Marty
I checked with her, and she said "fooka you"

I hope to make it out to the track to race with a great community of racers. See everyone out there, either as a racer or as a spectator.

It's TamTech time, Baby...!

Good Luck everyone!

I'm confuse, is this TCS or Nat's already. The way people are discussing here, it sure feels like Nationals already.

Marty,

Good Luck to you and everyone else out there. Don't forget to campaign for Nationals at Trackside

Not sure which Larry you are talking about, but if it is me the feeling is mutual and if it is not me I still consider you my freind.

I wish I could have been there for this race, unfortunately I will never get to experience Tamiya's Aliso facility.

Keep me posted on whats happening out there.

See you at Trackside soon.

Good day of practice....same layout as last years Nationals.

Pretty cold outside for those of us who live in sunny Orange County.

WOW just got done painting my body for this weekend the MINI class is really good I am going to have to drive my ASS off if I want to make the A main Christensen is fast but his car is not there yet, Grandpas car is fast but he is old " love ya grandpa" mickey's car traction rolls like a beer can down a highway my car is like a palm tree its "PLANTED" and yes fast enough anyways having a great time I heard from Fred we have 105 entries so 92 are MINIS and 13 are Vintage class. Just kidding we really have 105 racers so I will keep this post updated when I get home. By the way is there anyway that someone can slash Doc's tires on the way from San Diego. I don't need any more competition than I need.

Good racing so far I got DQ'd my first round and came back to TQ in the second in MINI. We have one more round of qualifying tomorrow morning and then triple a mains if we have the time if not only two mains. I don't know how GT1-3 rounded out but we have had a blast in Vintage class. I beleive this is how the top ten in MINI goes but not sure in what order except for me.

1. Brandon Koslosky
2. Kevin Nino
3. John Christansen
4. Robert Dingemans
5. Lee Caldwell
6. Alex Lopez
7. Orlando
8. Mickey Cohen
9. Craig Richter

I am missing someone in there sorry.

Uh, Brandon...I think you forgot one citical item regarding your TQ-ness...

Marty is TQ in F103GT, I'm second (please don't ask me how THAT happened). The brushless stuff is simply amaxing to watch. Jun, Dylan White and Bill Doty have been battling it out all day in TamTech onroad.

Vintage is pretty neat, Kevin Nino is just wiping the floor with an FF01.

Hope to do better tomorrow in the final Q. We shall see....
