Sounds good to me as long as it is the 12T Tamiya system. Then my TA05-IFS with Tamiya 12T with LIPO will be legal for the TAC series in Hong Kong too !

Fred, when can I get one ?

I just want to know so I can be ready.
Don't you want to be ready ? And yes... it does matter.
I've come to the track with an untested car for the last time.
Made the A with a virgin car at Trackside. Could of done a lot better with some more testing .... and the right tires. The Kit ones from the 15th kit are not the trick, unless everyone has them. Same with the motors. Yes , it does matter.

that looks like fun... but I can tell you there will be "cheater cars" like converted pan cars or the old Corally.

So the guy that gets the setup first gets the upper hand and i will most likely have to get one last minute. Its not easy getting it all figured out in one afternoon and be competitive. Finding all the little niche's that make it really dialed. Like trying to get the gearing perfect. My experience with the brushless stuff leaves a narrow window for maximum performance. Even narrower with the slower winds. Yes .. It does matter bro! Not only that , all the west coast guys will more than likely get theirs first and then I will be a Basketball Jones for something thats SOLD OUT AND ON A SLOW BOAT FROM CHINA..... so yes , it does.

awww.. dont get your panties in a bunch.. im not really a jerk. i just get bored and start trouble i've clowned on you before... for some reason you took it personal this time around?

ask Team B&B... i got him last year. now we're best buddies.

you want info on the Tamiya brushless... the ESC is a rebadged Sphere TC. we wont be able to use their motors because its only modified as of right now... 13.5 and 17.5 versions havent been announced. when they do.. they'll probably be rebadged versions of something else. (similar to the Tamiya power supply, rebadged Much More )

oh yah.. B3 works great at Tamiya. there's your "West Coast" insider info.

dont worry i get all antsy and angry too when i havent raced a TCS event.
