>"Men's Class"--huh? So those of us who choose the Sportsman Class aren't really sportsmen and should be called "Sports Girly Men" in your view? Or perhaps we're the "Boy's Class"? Is that what you're saying, huh? Maybe you think we who aren't frankly up to the pace of the past champions in these cars are the "Soft Class"? (insert image of Tom mad-dogging Gary K)

Gary, are you freakin' kidding me?

And are you coming here and running this year?

If I was gonna be there, im dumb enough to try and run with the big boys, so id probably run expert, if nothin else it would give them an extra challenge, but whose to say. Look for my triumphant return next year. Still think Marty should run expert

Exclamation TCS FINALS IN HOT ALISO VIEJO

Not letting the thread get too far from the subject matter, I wanted to mention to any out of towners that, Friday and Saturday is suppose to get up to 95 degrees and Sunday a cool 89 degrees.
I suggest that if you have easyups, fans, ice chests and sunscreen, you better bring what you can. You can leave the easy up at the track where your seated, it shouldn't be a problem.
Plus, if anybody has those spray mist systems, we can attach it to a easyup of a large umbrella, so racers can stand underneath to cool down. When it's this hot, chances of getting heat stroke is very high. Drink lots of water, and where cool clothing!
Just FYI and my 2$

Default Motor mount ?

Does anyone have a 4 piece motor mount assembly for the F103 ? I need the one that I can put in the adjustable ride height bearing thing in
Mine broke a month ago and I installed the solid aluminum one from 3 racing but that's a no-no for TCS...

I can't run TCS without it ....If someone has one for sale I would like to be at the Tamiya track Friday ( tomorrow )...

I have no idea where to get one in 24 hours

Do you just need the motor side? Because I think I might have the plastic one (since the 15th anniversary edition comes with the blue one, which means the plastic one is left on the part tree) Let me know, I will be there tomorrow

I think I have the back and front pieces, but I need both side pieces... I've got side pieces from a kit where the ride height are not adjustable, but that's no good with foams...

I'll see what I can dig up.

Did you check with Jeff over at Speed Tech? He got Tamiya shipment in yesterday and is anticipating on more boxes showing up today and tomorrow
