They should be. I have no local shops who carry or can get tamiya tires. The nearest one is over 200 miles away. To get my stuff I will order on the internet. If its from Steve at Speedtech, Kevin at Burien or from Rainbow ten. It does not matter what state or country I buy them from I simply click and wait for them to be delivered. I know that Steve has b's(or B2's) in stock now but they have been discontinued. Does this mean that they are not legal, they were not allowing the eunos and alpha mini bodies because they were no longer available. I guess i'm just biased because I already have a few sets of b3's. I still dont know if they work or not. You can get b3's from rainbowten for now, they take paypal and shipped by ems only takes about 4 to 5 days.
Tomdav,

Thanks for the support I believe the B tires are back in production again, so they are not discontinued (they were briefly) we've been getting them from Tamiya USA without any problems. Now for the B3, I believe someone will be testing the B3 at the Tamiya facility this weekend. So we'll know real soon just how good (or how bad) these new tires are. For the tires to be legal for TCS, it has to be available through US dealers, and as of right now, only samples has arrived, but the production shipment has not arrived yet. Tamiya USA is shooting for end of July/early August, so we are cutting it real close here.

Fine, if nobody wants to step up and call KOH, I will. After I WIN the Past Chumps race I WILL use the Mitsubishi Lancer. There...you all have been served! Especially those running in the Has-Been Class

Saweet! Let us know what happens. If all else fails and our cars begin to handle the way mine did at the nats (hurting)...then lets make life difficult for the others (freddy flicks, guard rails, etc.)hehe j/k

New suspension? I don't know. They should be in sometime next month. I still haven't unpacked my gear and it'll have to wait as I am working on another car right now...something much smaller

I thought maybe Jeff brought you back some goodies.

How about the Martin mash, or the Scottty squish.

I should have mine for TCS on the 7th up here to do some testing.
