Please make sure someone records the Mini A Main since Team B+B won't be there.

Good luck to the MD representatives... something about an 'International', 'Playboy' something or another

See, there's proof my memory is fading.
How did Scotty not kill it at the 1st Nats ?

What class did you compete in AK ?

Hey John,

Creative = technical ? That could be fun ! Nemo, Terence, Alan and I will all be up there. Still don't know what class I will run so will probably just bring up about five different ones and figure it out Saturday. Hoping to get the Lambo body painted to bring up when I get back into the states. It may hadle like crap but it will sure look cool !

Think about it.....An all off-road TCS! Tamiya has a 2WD buggy, a 4WD buggy, rally cars, 1/16th scale Tamtech buggies, and the 1/8th scale buggy and truggy.......I dunno, doesn't seem so far fetched now, does it.

I just watched Ryan Lutz running his buggy and truggy with 450+ other racers at the 2010 AMS and several of us want them now!!! It looked really sweet landing the triple at the start/finish.

Oh, but I must not forget that I'm here in Memphis tonight preparing for the Great UNLIMITED MINI EXTRAVAGANZA! Team Red Dot has pulled out all the stops and have some serious ponies at the end of the straight away.

I wonder if Tamiya has any plans for a SC truck. Every other company has one. Now, that would be fun a Trackside along with the off road vehicles.

Bruce and I will be there, flying in from the East. We will be doing F104 Rubber, who else if running F1? I know there is a huge F1 contingent in the Bay area? last year there were 2 heats of F103? Come on you F1 Fanatiacs come out and race? Heck we are traveling 2500 miles to get there and fliying out Sunday on the "Red Eye" I am sure if you want to go to Japan "The Nats in Aug/2010 @ Tamiya will be "F104 Rubber" to qualify??
John will you be using the "Super Zambony Sprayer" That is pretty cool sprayer and unreal traction! also will there be AC power or Generators to hook up to? and is there a "Get Ready Race on Saturday" when does it start?

Hope to see all the NorCal guys at the race?
Steve.

I didn't see the Hickman Hauler today in Memphis. You guys here, or did the hauler break down this year?

Bill,
We are concentrating on The Tamiya Track this year! It does not make much sense to go to all the other races when it all comes down to The Nationals in Aug? The Rain variable kinda killed Memphis this year based on last year? Also we are doing F104 Rubber this year and all the tracks on the schedule do not seem to have much participation??? When the Nationals Rules comes out I am sure you will see that the only Japan F1 qualifier will be Rubber F104? Hope you guys have a good race in Memphis and "No Rain"
We will be @ Glen Burnie in July

Maybe see you in Aug @ Tamiya?ve
Steve

Thanks MSRA for a wonderful race weekend at the Memphis TCS! A smooth run event with plenty of Southern hospitality!!! I don't think anyone clocked the minis at the end of the straight, but some looked like GT2's w/Tekins.

Charlie Lydon continued his Memphis Mini Mastery and won one more time before he "retires" from TCS racing --- again.

Kudos also to Jeff Stevens for his GT2/GT3 back-to-back racing. A 2nd in GT3, followed immediately by a 1st in the 8 minute GT2 main.

Todd Marshall pulled double duty as well in the F1 classes. I can't remember exactly how he finished, but he had a stash of Tamiya goodies going home with him.

Hopefully someone can post the rest of the winners.
