Obviously a typo, but it gives new meaning to the term "aggressive" drivers!
Fred should be informed the webmaster didn't check grammar.

I can't speak for Tamiya but my first instinct would be no. If you read the rules, only Tamiya hop ups are allowed. The only class that allows modification to the chassis is GT1 and that is limited to chassis lightening, no custom fabrication allowed.

I wouldn't say "custom" so much as "home-made"...but yeah, it would be very illegal in a TCS event. Even if you weren't planning on running in TCS, wouldn't it be easier to pick up the Tamiya aluminum motor mount and mill out the motor holes so that it could be adjustable?

Rod is right, home made is a better description. But hey, just so long as it works right? And no, it is not legal for TCS.

This Just In:
****SUPER IMPORTANT NOTICE****
The motor rules for GT-2 ( for the TCS Nationals) have changed.

This is due to the lack of sufficient supplies of the Sport Tuned motor.

GT-2 will be using a spec Johnson 540 Silver canned motor (#53689). Each competitor in the GT-2 class will be allowed to purchase a maximum of two motors for practice, qualifying and racing. (If you have your own silver canned motors to use for practice, they are allowed to be used) These motors will be available at the event for $15.00 each. Manage your two motors accordingly as they must be used for qualifying and racing.
************************

Note that your own motor may only be used for practice, not for racing. Katzer, this should make you a very happy guy!
Later
Doc
