If it is determined to be illegal, then I'm out...no TCS for me.
Hey Rod
Are you going to run rubber or foam. I hope they don't ding you. I don't see why? Hopefully will see you on saturday.

Hi Alex...I'll "try" to run rubber. Emphasis on try because my car may be sponsored by Krispy Kreme...it does donuts. But I gotta try because that trimmed tray is worth .4 sec a lap

We have launched a new site within our website. www.tamiyagear.com
Check it out. We have new TCS 2010 T-shirts available with 3 different designs, depending on your class preference. They are also available in different colors. More color choices will be added in the future. Check it out. We made the pricing on all the apparel as cheap as we could to

Hope you guys like the designs.

Any chance of "at track" sales ? The hooded sweatshirt is on my buy list.

I spoke to Jeff today also. He should have one more order before the race. Call him for details.

No TCS for me.


Dude, don't give up yet, I'm not.

I'm hopin some of these F103 Veterans will step up and help out during the current gearbox drought.

Maybe Fred will even allow us to run the F104 gearbox as an emergency measure since the parts are so scarce.
If he has to say no I understand but there's no advantage to using it other than the fact that they don't explode on impact.

Where did you get that sticker sheet? I'm assuming it is stickers?

Hi Chris! The decals are either AMS or Decal Island (they're identical). They are a part of the "Bar and M" sticker sheet. Here's a link to the item description from D-Drive in Japan: Sticker Sheet. Rainbow 10 also has a large selection of AMS decals as well. The red and black parts were painted and the beige is vinyl from Ultimate hobbies.
