Right?
Wow, what a bummer, sounds like the locals may loose a little of their significant advantage

I still think it's a mistake he copy and pasted one too many times?

No insert will work as good as "MY" inserts!

Eric,

Since you asked, I went to the dispaly case and did a count.

I have earned:
07 GOLD
13 SILVER
05 BRONZE
25 total podiums

as far as total TCS races, I would guess close to 40 to 43 from my reconstruction of photos, medal notations, travel records and my fading memories. BTW, Somehow as I remember back and the older I get, the faster I was...

I started TCS in 1995, ran at least once every year since including Nationals 13 times (all top ten finishes) and have practiced/raced at Aliso 116 days up to now, Trackside TCS too many times to count (there were two Trackside TCS's for several years), Racine WI TCS, and two diferent Illinois TCS venues.

Now if you add the family plan, with my three boys running over the years add two Silvers and there has to be an additional 35 or so "MPH" Family TCS attendences....

Hi Marty,

Do you happen to have more details such as individual race results for the classes you entered, # of classes entered, dates of races (year and month), or race #? My spread sheet requires that level to work properly. Also, I am not including national results as one can really only win that one once and for some reason many of the past class winners, had failry short TCS careers (there are many excpetions to this of course). Although, Trackside's yearly race the past few years might be considered the carpet TCS nats for most years.

I like the spec tire idea, except that I planned ahead last year and had quite a few B3 sets already mounted and glued for this year. And I am 100% sure the insert I am running is NOT the same as the insert in the spec tire. But hey, at least they weren't mounted on DISH wheels!

But what I hadn't seen yet is the limit to the number of sets you can buy.

Good day at Freemont today!! Alot of fun with the guys up here we went out for some food and beverages last night and today we ran the club race. I had Ken Brumbly covered but after the race the track was open for practice and I think he has found a very strong setup and will make for some exciting Mini action tomorrow. Arluck walked away with GT2 and looks like the favorite to win it. Side note - He let me drive his car during practice and on lap 4 I put it into the inside board on the straight and the tire fell off for some odd reason as well as I think he had a defective hub carrier and it kinda fell off with the tire too. Sorry James MY BAD DOGG. Well off to sleep I will post tomorrows results after the race when I get home.

MAX - Everyone knows what your running for inserts so no biggy. Plus all the people out there will be on the same rubber so no one can complain.

Mini Guys - I heard through the grapevine that the insert for the mini is going to be double stuffed HPI Blue so all the out of town guys I suggest you mount a few sets and start testing and dial in your setup

Ken Brumbly - Your goin down tomorrow dude.

The asian guy in the wheel chair - Leave my girlfriend at Applebees alone she is all mine.

yeah, sounds a bit expensive even for GT-3 since I now have a bunch of B3 and rims that I've been saving which will now be pretty much useless...and since I don't have a Tekin, GT-1/2 will be expensive as well. And unfortunately we can't run GT-4 as a second class, then might as well cancel the FF03 (sorry speed tech)

shoot....I guess no TCS for me this year?...
