You are bitter because you dont have a race within a few miles of your home, you feel slighted because Tamiya changed their product and race offerings and they didn't fit you.GET OVER IT!!!!!!
I have won races in TCS I have made the A at the nats, and I have won multiple concourses as well as finishing on the podium multiple times. I cant always win, and these days it is harder than ever to make the A even at a regional. But am I going to quit? HELL NO!!!!! I do TCS for more than trophies or free kits . I have talked to people who know you and have been around you You are the guy that no one wants to hang with at the track , because you are a pain in the a$$
Hmmm.. The last statement is personal, care to back it up with facts? Or
are you just a keyboard jockey?

So, back it up Bozo....

Wester,

I dont think you have been to a big race lately. The ROAR rules allow both motors to be run together.

At the Reedy Truck race, 13.5 outnumbered the 19t . There was not one brushed motor in the A. There is no advantage to running a 19t brushed.

Check out the IIC race results and the Reedy race. 13.5 brushless dominated !!!

all day. There was not one brushed motor in the A. There is no advantage to running a 19t brushed.

Check out the IIC race results and the Reedy race. !3.5 brushless dominated !!!
Kevin,

The IIC was a brushless only race.

All,

I think the 19T vs. 13.5 issue will sort itself out since 19T motor development has been at a standstill for the last 2 years and new 13.5's hit the market every few months. By the time next season starts the current 13.5's will blow 19T motors away (if they aren't already).

Keyboard jockey? well aint that the pot calling the kettle black!
Bozo? Oh boy, ya got me, my true identity is out in the world now
Back it up? You mean cause problems for someone who simply answered a simple question when asked if he knew you and what your problem was. The response was somewhere in the neighborhood of no talent, loudmouth, whining crybaby, and no that is not a direct quote, but it makes for good entertainment at your expense
BOZO OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are there any plans to have a Vintage Class?

Oh I know the facts
The facts are that you are the only one on here that never has a good thing to say about Tamiya, TCS, or the people that run it.
The facts are that you obviously haven't been to a TCS race in quite a while or you would know what you were talking about
And probably the most important fact of all would be that me and I am pretty sure everyone that posts on this thread are more than tired of you and your BS.
You got half right in your signature you are a DICK!!!!!

Not a chance. A 13.5 was designed to be a stock equivilent motor. It can get close, but if it stays within rotor paramaters that are legal it simply won't have the gusto to be faster. That's not to say that a better driver with a 13.5 won't beat a 19, just that if all things are equal a 19 is definately faster.

Here is some proof for you-all. Last year at the 2008 Snowbirds I ran in the F1 class. I used my 3Racing F201 chassis and foam tires and 4 cell battery pack were required.
If the F103 can use oval foams that would be great... Oh Wait.. Tamiya does not make or allow other companies tires... Oh well....
DICK,
Please come to the Trackside TCS race (end of March) so you can meet a few MORONS. We will be nice to you no matter how your luck or talent run that particular day because we tend to be nice to folks from out of town, and go out of our way to be extra nice to folks who are just plain pains in the rear. Either way, we will be nice to you and not attack your inteligence.

I have a guess you have little to no experience running Tamiya F-103 cars with foam tires or otherwise. I can assure you, you will gain an understanding of where you stack up against some of the best F-103 drivers in this country, including a past foam tire F-103 National Champion.

The F-103 is nothing like an F-201 so your comparisons are of little value and indicate your lack of knowledge.

I have not run every TCS season as some others have, but I have enjoyed every event I attended. I have lost count, but it has to be around 150 or so days in attendance at TCS events including 12 Nationals. These are the facts and I think I have learned much valuable information and earned the right to my opinion on this subject.

Is TCS perfect? No, but then again, niether are you.

Please learn some courtesies and refrain from your allways rude, constant negative comments on Tamiya, their TCS events and those who participate. Quit frankly, it has gotten very old, tiresome and everyone would like to read well crafted, polite, usefull comments from you, or nothing at all.

Just checked the ROAR rules for onroad and Super Stock is 19 turn or 10.5 brushless. Rule 1.2.2. in the RMT Nationals book. I have no argument with running 10.5 or 19 turn. They are much closer in perfomance. What I object to is giving the person who chooses brushed a clear advantage over those who choose brushless. I personally think it should be just 13.5 that is allowed and those who want to run brushed can go run the vintage class with their outdated equiptment.
