The new car looks very tunable and more like a real "12th scale" R/C. Question is will they include that Tamiya "spec." brushless motor and speedo to complete the package. At least I do not feel bad about the $235 sticker on it now that I know the tires are $70 a set.
I think it would not be fair to allow those cars to be legal this year especially when alot of people have invested there money in the cars they currently have but again I dont' think the M05 will be any better then the M03 but I guess we will have to see when Doc gets his

Just talked to Fred this morning...the M05 will be legal for mini racing. It has the exact same gearbox as the M03.

It was a good weekend...lots of wrenching. In the end all of our cars came to us in the mains. Actually...Jims car was on the whole time in GT3. And doc Hickman and I had a great battle in GT2. Tim put on a hell of a show. Anybody who didn't make it out to Hobbyplex really missed out. That place is a class A world class facility!

It was great meeting Fred. We spoke a lot of the future of TCS...and all I can say is it's gonna be very cool! Time to get the M05!!

People are just recovering from the Reedy race. Give them some time.

This just in:

Robbie Dodge, Race Director for the TCS event in Glen Burnie, MD on July 26th, has just announced that there will be NO RPM LIMIT on motors in any Silver Can class at their event.

Let it rip, gentlemen!

So I'm wondering when Tamiya is going to slip us a Micky and tell us that we need to be using their new spec. Brushless system ?
