Anybody have a EvoS manual handy? What does it say about the tires that were supplied with the kit. In the last few pages of the manual it should say what the tires are and a part number for replacement. Haha order some Torex 36R's.

No such luck Rod they do not list a part #

The insert seems to be the Tamiya black and it gives monster air gap. They list a part number for it but I did not look it up to see if it is the same

At Tamiya HQ, they change it up every so often. But at every big race, it's always been ccw.

The rumor is the TCS Nationals will run the following "trip awarded classes" for 2003:

GT1
GT2
F1

(If you qualified in GT3 you will be pooled in the same class as the GT2 racers for the Nationals event)

This is rumor/speculation on my part, however I did hear that the 2003 Nationals rules changes will be posted shortly on th Tamiya America web site.

Stay tuned!

Default Type B's returing?

So has anyone heard the rumor that the Type B sedan tires are being re-released again?

(since the B is now the OEM tire on the TA04TRF)

Default b's

Looking at the tamiya website it shows A's as the kit tire. One other thing about the trf. The new aluminum suspension mounts allow 2.5 to 3.0 deg. of rear toe in. I would think that on the Tamiya track you would want to have the 2.0 as to not scrub too much speed. Any comments.

Default TCS PRACTICE AT BURIEN

Thats right, the track will be set up in a different lot than our normal racing. The track for those that remember will be behind the TRD Parts dept.

And this weekend will be setup there for a practice day!!!!!!!

As for any questions, feel free to call the store, or email me!

Thanks
Kevin
