From what I hear is that Doc won't even be able to put his own motor in his mini there going to have someone impartial to do it.
You are correct.

Shame and Modesty are actually the names of my new celebrity lapdance spokestrollops

BTW - so which of the so called "Skunk Works" leads TCS in DQ's this year? ..... ......I'll be interested to see what is allowed as it relates to motors for spec classes...if rumors prove true, race management will lock down performance this year. no voodoo.........

To find more speed while enjoying my hobby, I have found that it helps immensely to spend less time at the keyboard and more time with a wrench.

Well spoken wise one!


When the point comes that I stop tinkering with cars and motors --- is the time when I'll log on here (like so many others) and complain about how fast everyone else is. It's almost an institution, bud!!!

Hello, Would like to know what Body would be good to use in the TCS race. I'll be running in the GT1 class and not sure what body to get...... Also if you know if the B3 tires are the way to go. It will be hot and large newly paved asphalt.

Thanks

Hey Alex, here you go. This body got to be the best for low speed down force and drivability. I believe the top 3 used it for last year Nats.



I will PM you with a real list.

Usually I don't race in IFMAR qualifying. Since you had alread got TQ, we were close to being the same speed, had 3 rounds, a few laps turned into 5 minutes of seeing if I could hold you off. Usually the mains I race locally I don't have the opportunity that you presented me. I was perhaps a few batts off figuring out where how you guys were eating me in the corners. I know the last turn before the straight was murder on me, which you seemed to catch me then we ran close to the same down the straight. It was all in good fun and I miss heads up qualifying . .

Jeff,
All kidding aside, it was good practice for me to race with you like that it gave me some insight with this class GT3 and the importance of corning speed in this type of "Silver Can" racing? as you could see I had the car freed up and it was caring a lot speed thru the corners the TB02R does that very well in regards to this type of motor we use in GT3. In my opinion it does it better than my TA05 IFS? I believe the TB03 should be awesome in the Silver Can Black Can type of racing. Can't wait to get mine put together!!
Are you attending the TCS Nats this year in Aug??

Thumbs up

Just wanted to throw in my 2 bits for track announcer at this year's TCS Champs. I've like Doug of SIR announcing. Can we get confirmation that he'll be back again this year?
