Talked to Tamiya America and according to Fred, the RPM limit for silver cans at Aliso the end of June is 13.5K. SO, all you guys who got motors from me for that event are safe... ...barely

Still have a few 13.5K's left if anyone's interested. Awesome torque. [email protected]

Entries are filling up fast so get your teams together ASAP!

Do you have to run a Tamiya body also ? Only asking because it just says an appropriate M-Chassis body.

Nemo, AFung, Yellow Taro........ interested ? Taro - how about we use my mini I sold you and I paint up the bodies ?

You will need a chassis plate, kingpins,frt uprights, and a diff joint set for the rear axle, as well as the diff hub and thrust bearing.
Probably about 45 min to swap everything over

CongratsTo Branden you drove a great race! same to Steve Hickman it's always fun to watch you and your brother run bumper to bumper. As always Tamiya races are about the drivers even in the slower classes the racing is exciting. It is too bad the race was run in such a crappy location TCS should be run on real tracks when available not parking lots with painted lines, arrows, and greasy oil all over the place. I know the politics involved with distributers but when the race director tells the racers in the main to "hit the leader he's coming up behind you" you begin to wonder what happened to the "FUN" TCS series.

My guess is that it will be up on their website next week. They usually don't have the next race's entry form up until the race before it has been run.
