That's a great idea using car kits to pay back tabs! I wonder if that will work with bartenders?

Hmmm.. I just read again more carefully. There's only 4 classes. GT1, GT2, F201 and Mini.

I'm glad there's a GT3 class. I heard rumblings that they may combine it with GT2, but I guess that's not the case. Should be a fun event. I am looking forward to it. Now, which classes to run...

And also RedbullFixx...our first ever F1 champion (I think, if I remember my R/C history correctly) Dave, you need to run this even! Even though it means you have to not run your fish for a change

Default TCS motor rules

Sorry guys. For those of you who have read the rules I posted on Tamiya's site there will be a correction on monday. The 23Turn motor rules state that there is adjustable timing. This is not the case as it is a locked timing omn the can. Pas it along. It seems this has bee a issue of debate.
Also there is a one class limit.

Ok time for me to get my cup of coffee, head over to the track and bring a frsh can of WUPPA$$ to my friends :-)

So FMW, did you add the "special sauce" parts to the EVO 3 last night?

Interested to see how they work...hope they help your cause because one of your employees was talkin' some serious trash

So the 23T motor for the GT1 and F201 classes. I can't wait till the nats! I take it the regionals are still open to any ROAR approved motor?

Neil I tried but had to settle for just the hobby shop.

Looking forward to the past champs class Sisley, myself and Peter are coming down to partake in the fun, and hacking Fred.

Default TCS Nats.

I spent the day testing at the TA track Sat. for the Nats....I was not the only person with this idea however. It was good to see a large number of stop watches and LCS boxes hovering trackside.

It is clear that the change in rules has quite a few people thrashing to find a set-up that works with the new motor & re-released tires

This should be an entertaining Nats. weekend....especially with the "Nats warm-up" TCS race this month at the TA track.

Dan, still have not seen anyone testing the 04R's for the past Champs race...except Hibler who showed up this weekend from TX

FYI - F201 drivers better bring your A game as Wangs F201 looked very, very good

John, Sisley, Peter, and I all ran a past champs this weekend at the TCS kind of impromptu. Pete and I both borrowed cars and Brett had his for NA Finals already. Made for fun we all had a good time rubbing fenders. All 3 of us ran 8/2 and the song was cool.

Too bad Dave it would be fun to rekindle that Reedy fun. The format should be interesting 8 runs no throwouts mmmmmmm
