Last time I ran it, I almost gave up and made it a shelf queen. But yeah...performance and handling at the moment is borderline equal to or slightly higer than that of an SQ.

Can't beat the track.
Can't beat the location, 10 minutes from my house!
Really likin the quality of the cars too and I need a new T/C anyway!

So, if I'm not needing the trick of the week, top of the line T/C, which car would be the best value?
Parts availability, sportsman level competitive, durability/reliability...

How bout some input from the been there done that guys. Thanks.
I would say go with the TA05 series or the TB-03. They are great for RCGT racing, regular club racing, and are the specified chassis for GT-2 racing at TCS. I'll have mine (TB-03) with me this weekend, feel free to come check it out. Dotman next to me will have his TA05. Plus these IFS series cars let you run all the cool new low profile bodies (NSX, Ebbro, Aryata, R35)

11 guys in GT1.. if you dont make the A-main.. you're a COMPLETE UTTER FAILURE of EPIC Proportions.... worthy of being written into the history books.

Either a TA05IFS-R or a TB03IFS-R That would be my pick.
I have a TA05 IFS and will probably have the TB03 before its all said and done

They should just make it an 11 car A-main....otherwise, the B-main would be rather boring

Last time I looked there were 11 grid positions on the front straightway.

I would guess having a 11 car main would be up to the discretion of the race director.
