For those that are attending, go to this site for more information on Hotels Rooms. Get them while they last MSRA's TCS HOTEL INFO

Who's coming? Should be a great race. We'll be having a regular club race the Saturday before so if you like to race come on. We'll be racing all types of kits not just Tamiya. Go to the MSRA thread for more information.
This weekend, yeah baby!!!!!

And this weekend will be setup there for a practice day!!!!!!!

As for any questions, feel free to call the store, or email me!

Yeah MJ,

I was told this weekend that I don't have any tl01's. My response was simple. I had one of the first calsonic skylines. When the spec class ran bearings, shocks, type a (26mm), and roar stocks.

Yeah I gave that thing away along time ago!!!

Now, with the long arm sets, they look damn good!!!

Hi guys!!! WOW!!! The TCS rce in Memphis was awesome!!!! I have to be honest- I thought a TCS race was for lamers or something like that... boy was I WRONG!!! I couldn't believe how fast those spec cars were!!! Plus, I had an awesome time meeting all the folks from out of town. I even got to put some rctech names with some faces!! We had something like 78 entries which I thought was really good for our first time hosting the TCS race in a long while.

Mike, Steven, Dan, Mitchell, and all the other guys I met thank you so much for coming to race. It was a pleasure meeting and racing with you guys.

Everyone who missed the race- you really missed a good one. You need to check out the pictures- they turned out very nice. I was proud to be in such a great crown of racers. I saw more sportsmanship and brotherhood at this one race than I've seen at 10 other combined. Maybe it was that great pep talk I gave in the driver's meeting? :O

Nah BigDog, this is how it always is at a TCS event.

Good job on that 1st place finish in GT1. We should plan on attending the TCS race in Cali. I believe it's in October.

Default TCS Pictures

Hey Guys,

I have posted the pictures that MSRA took during the club race on Saturday July 12th and the TCS event on Sunday July 13th. There are 3 pages full of pictures 69 pictures in all!!


I hope to post video in the next day or two. I know that the TL-01 Spec A main and the GT-1 A main will be there in its entirety in both a low res and a high res format. Also there will be a montage video of last weekend’s events.


To see the pictures for this event click on the link below.

Default Memphis and other nonsense

Looks like you guys had a blast over there in Memphis.


I was wondering when the rules are coming out for Sept TCS race.

Some friends were telling me that T-maxes were now the GT1 chassis, F1s were running backwards, minis were running brushless and rally was a new dance on the track that involved rubber hammers... I guess like wacka-mole.... hey that would be perfect for mini.

Well anyway I would like to know so I can get my hammer ready.
