Quick FYI for all the TCS racers coming in to Glen Burnie from out of town for race #147; if anyone needs a hotel for a night or two in the area the weekend of our TCS event, please let me know ASAP. We may be able to work out a deal with a local hotel to provide a reduced rate, but we need to be able to book 10 rooms to do so. This hotel was recently taken over by La Quinta and, from my understanding, has recently been renovated.

We're working out the details with the hotel now, and your support will help us out!

Please contact me via PM, or send me an email at [email protected]

Thanks,
Robbie

Just talked to someone at Tamiya, gates open @ 7:30 and same day registration is open.

F1 has 2 maybe three heats! Any last minute F1s - Ultimate has premounted foams in stock, though they are medium/soft two stars which I heard get a little greezy out there.

Ahhhhh... It's probably "THE" tire to have, and some are spreading the word so others don't use it Ah, that's very sneaky...

Default Racing tomorrow!

Racing tomorrow!
I had nasal surgery yesterday, so I'm bandaged, looking kinda funny, and feeling a little loopy, but I'm excited! I'll be in a happy place!
Mini & F1 for me.

Sounds like you're looking and feeling normal to me. Glad you'll be able to make it. Lee and I were having our doubts. You must be one tough dude.

Hello everybody!

Tomorrow should prove to be fun. At present I am building the new M05 that justshowed up late this afternoon. If you're a Mini racer come by tech to check this new car out.

Also, parking is not what we used to have. There is only parking in the street and at Pepsi across the street. Dump your stuff at the curb and please be mindfull to park in the street and at Pepsi.

Good luck everyone! I'll make this regional a fun one and one to remember.

Thanks man. My money is on me to, but I will tell you that there are alot of tough guys out here and some that came down from NorCal inclusing Ken Brumbly which is always tough competition. And with there being the low motor RPM limits it keeps the racing very very tight which is awesome. I am a huge fan of everyone having equal horsepower in fact the events that don't have motor limits seem to be a little less fun in my opinion. Anyways just got done going through the mini with a fine tooth comb and ready for bed. I am excited to see the new M05 i will snap some pics and get them on the forum asap.
My pick for A main Top Ten Qualifiers in no particular order -

Brandon (thats me)
Ken Brumbly
Jung
Craig Richter
Danny Edgar
Grandpa (if he holds it together for 5 min X 2)
Kevin Nino
John Christensen
Lee Caldwell
John Balatico

Any one else have there guess?
