djfourmoney - SirSiwftAlot doesn't speak for all of us. I think the forums are for the exchange of ideas. The TCS is a great series with a lot of great people. I think you'll enjoy it.

You guys are right but seriously when do you say enough. There has been alot of information given and all to no avail I welcome all racers and do not get upset at a novice when he or she is needing help but when they don't take the advice given by so many then thats when it gets frustrating. My apologies to DJ.

Reenmachine - I don't think your questions got answered.

GT-2 and GT-3 are just as competitive as GT-1 or Mini. They are all competitive. Any of the classes is okay for an intermediate racer. With the turn out's you will see at the Tamiya Aliso race, the A main will usually be the same guys you see running Expert class at the local tracks. However, you will also see some familiar Sportsman or Intermediate guys making the B and C mains. Come out and race. When you run against better drivers, it only helps you to get better. As for which motor, Novak or LRP, run whatever you are running in RCGT now.

This is a great forum and series for Tamiya fans. It just gets tiring when people post the same old complaints or people ask for advice as a nube and then argue the advice with people (some who probably have 10+ years racing experience) on this thread.

Now, lets all hope Santa brought us all the cool RC stuff we wanted. If he didn't, oh well, we all know where to buy what we want anyways. Look forward to seeing all at the first regional end of January in Aliso. Only problem is, still don't know which classes to run. I already asked Fred if I could run GT-1, GT-2, GT-3, Mini and F103 and he said no. Maybe the Starbucks gift basket for Christmas will change his mind.

Thanks for the response!

I'm running a SpeedPassion in RCGT, and I read the TCS rules as specifying Novak or LRP only.

No worries though, as Santa Yung has arranged a Christmas Eve delivery of an IFS-R, LRP 17.5, NSX 2007 body, and some other goodies!

I sent an email to Fred regarding whether or not there will be an off-road class at the Aliso Viejo rounds of TCS, I'm sure I'll get a confirmation from him after the holidays
