Roll Call for TCS Glen Burnie:
I have raced there a couple of times, Great Track and Robbie Dodge and the Crew do a fantastic job!
Last year @ Laurel the GB Boys stepped up to the plate and certainly under short notice brought the track with them to the Laurel track site and put on a great race!
Everybody if possible should attend this GB TCS Event, it will be some great racing in all classes and the Heat and Humidity will be a factor with the silver Cans and the Brush-less Motors this weekend! I am sure we will see 100F+ temps this weekend and probably 150deg track temps! Be careful with those Silver Cans going "KaBlamo" and the 10.5 and 13.5 "Thermolock"
See Ya, This Weekend
Steve.

Vicko,
Choosing the best Tamiya racing body is like asking what's the best Religion.

Everyone has a different opinion. The trusty method of choosing is to go to the TCS website and look at past winners and see the body that were in the top 3. In general, the top available general purpose race bodies are (not in order):

http://www.tamiyausa.com/tcs_races/results.php

1. NSX (which year is another argument)
2. GTR
3. 350 Z
4. SC430
5. F430
6. MB DTM
7. Audi DTM

I will send you a PM with some more info.

Kahuna:
We will need to hook up with somebody for AC Power can you spare some Generator room maybe if we pitch in for the fuel cost? I am bringing a 10X10 easy up and 2 100ft ext. cords and we can probably help out with some speed secrets of own from the Hickman Bros Racing archives???
Thx,
Steve.

steve, more than likely, all the known generators carried by GB regulars i'm sure you can tie off on 1 of them. i personally know of 4 1000/2000 hondas and 1 large honda that regularly frequent the grounds most sats.

Hey Robbie:
Does look like at this point in time that the track will be set up prior to 12noon?
We would like to get out there ASAP for some practice in the AM on 7/12/08??
I know there guys coming from WI, OH, CA, VA, IL to race and they sure would like the track time if possible????
Thx,
Steve.

If it is, then Swifty is the man

She wishes she could be with someone like me. I wouldn't give her the time of day unless of course if it was late at night and she wanted it then I would give her all the time she wanted I would even buy her a folex from TJ (its a socal thing)

Hicks - Just throwin some BS around its all good and its fun too. Let me know if you want me to save you guys a pit space for Nats.
