Ive got a 415 I wanted to make into a T/A ... but umm.. wasnt there some rule about no double deck cars ? I havnt seen any official stuff about it. Looks like I'd have to have a Roger Penske/ Mark Donahue Camaro! But not a Sam Posey car... Can someone shoot me some specs?

Any other known sources out there?

I can't let you get away with that utter BULL Brandon.

Just try to defend your running an extra magnet inserted into your motor can as NOT being the most "REPULSIVE" violation.

I love ya man, but, that was total BS!

It wasn't a magnet it was a metal eraser that came from the factory that way. And just to set the record straight there is no bitterness between dylan and I. In fact I like Dylan he drove a flawless race and very much deserved the win. Good luck Dylan I hope you guys do well out there. Along with Deven they they should have a good shot at bringing home the Gold , its a definite advantage having someone be there two years straight especially with his motor and setup knowledge. GOOD LUCK GUYS

Marty,
Swifty had no choice but to do what he did, I mean come on if he had bought a couple of red dots, that would be like 8 less lap dances. And you know what happens when you can't afford more lap dances

You guys need to be more like me. I lose because of my poor driving and my slow cars but I'm............. On second thought losing sucks. If I had any clue how to do the motor voodoo that yoodoo I'd be all over it. Of course that still wouldn't help my driving but whataya gonna do.

I water dunked mine till the brushes were almost seated and drew about 2 amps. But it still wasn't as fast as Doc's creations. I can get lap dances almost anywhere. But not at the race track. And apparently I can get bikinis on R/C Tech . uhh.. was she dancin there? maybe I can skip the new motor this time ..

Well, TCS fans it's Thursday 9:00PM and I'm wiped out, the jet lag has caught up to me. So here is a rundown of the day's activities for us, driver's meeting and a tour of Tamiya Headquarters, a quick stop at the Tamiya's Oshika track which is about the same size of the R&D track at Aliso Viejo, next was a bus ride to Kakegawa Circuit, which is super huge. Here are some random pics from today. Goodnight and I will be back later!

Thanks for the update George.

Too bad they missed todays activities.

Thanks for the pics George. You forgot to mention the "shopping" on Thursday.

Tony and Dylan - get some good rest tonight and be fresh for some kick butt qualifying your Friday.

Steve - we hope you make it there in time !

Best of luck to all of the North American Champions in this year's Tamiya Worlds !
