Want to go race the TAC series in HK with Nemo and I ? The "big class" over there is GP3700. Tub chassis only (no 415/416/EVO's). They all run Tamiya's 12T brushless systema and spec battery sold by the Tamiya HK distributor. Even as "spec" as that is, the fast guys still get accused of cheating.

I know I wouldn't be accused. I just do this for fun, and my driving shows it.

Well TCS isn't following ROAR rules for legal 13.5's or 17.5's so there's been plenty of divergence already from ROAR Rules.

The only ROAR on this thread is from the people after they read the 2010 rules.

If Tamiya had a spec BL that was solid and did not get modified every year, I would happy happy run that. If Tamiya had a spec BL system for $100 or less, like Hobbywing does.... might be even better yet.

Oh snap! Not another moving target schedule!

Glad I hadn't booked my flights yet. Not sure if that weekend will work for me or not, but I will find out soon enough.

For my friends at the Tamiya track, my wife's surgery went well and she is recovering nicely. I hope to see you all soon with my updated M05 and am looking forward to doing battle in the weekly Mini Mayhems.

Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday to all. It looks like mine will be very, very good this year.

Me and Timmy haven't been to the track lately, I didn't know about your wife. I'm glad everything went well. Merrry Christmas to you and your wife.
I also want to say Merrry Xmas and a Happy New Year to all the Tamiya guys, not just local but all around the country. Too many names to mention them all. Let's just say from the east coast to the West coast and up North where you guys really get a white Christmas.
Don't forget if you've been good racers this year Santa might leave you a nice Tamiya kit under the tree! But, of coarse we've all been good! Right?
Max
