A 21.5 should be ok with the Tam BL Syst for club racing.
But we shall see I guess.

Wish they picked the Tam BL system for F1, oh well...

Anybody know the kv for the Novak 21.5 6800-type motor? We had some fun running them at TA yesterday. With a SPX speedo in throttle profile 5 (refused to use the unlimited profiles), geared at 4.46, the car was as quick down the straight as any silvercan. Later in the day MaxePower and F'N Cuda geared up from where I was and were quicker down the straight. I was banking on my setup being close to what the Tamiya 18T would run, but maybe I should gear up.

Tommy,
If I'm not mistaken, the 18t Tamiya motor will be just a tick faster than a "normal " 17.5 which in comparison to the normal 21.5s we were running yesterday, the 18t should destroy those when geared correctly.

Why the 18t was chosen to replace silver cans is confusing since they will not be close performance wise.

These cars will be on the verge of mild modified I think.
I'm thinkin they will handle just fine that fast tho, just bring extra sets of tires.
At least for the front.

Wow I was just reading the rules for 2011 and for someone who was looking to run TCS next year since I'm just getting back into rc, I guess I'm out since none of my cars are legal. My mini is a M04L, my GT1 car was a TA-03R, GT2 I had a TA-03F or my FF, my F1 is a F103RS, what got me started in TCS is my TL-01. So having to buy a spec brushless system and new car I'm not going to run the series.

Marty,
I agree that this is steep for a spec premount, but remember this is MSRP, street price will probably come in around $40 which is still above most premounts but better than $70

Welcome back, things look a bit different huh?
At the risk of being a dick, did you really think that you were going to come back to TCS with little to no investment?
All the cars that you own are very cool, I have them in my fleet as well, but they are old. Some parts are still available but mostly out of production.
as was mentioned a few posts back, Tamiya runs the series to sell and promote products. At some point chassis have to be phased out. Honestly I am surprised that the early chassis have lasted this long, although I can't remember the last time I saw a TA03 at a TCS race.
As far as the brushless deal, that has been discussed over and over on here.
I will say that if both manufacturers and competitors had been a little more liberal with the introduction of certain technologies, we probably would not be required to have a spec system. Just another $.02 for the swear jar

FoxRob - The least expensive class is Mini (I wonder it's the most popular?). I would try that. They're a lot of fun and you won't have to invest so much.

The Spec tire is the S Grip Radial #53254, hard foam insert #53255, and a 11 spoke rim. The Spec tire has a special grey rim, but almost any Tamiya Mini rim will do except the rims that came with the Rover.

My M04L was built and ready to goto the TCS race in MD back in 2001 but due to unfortunate events I didn't make it, the car has sat on a shelf since. I was looking at possibly getting a M05 pro, not sure though since I need new brushless systems for my other car which is a TC3.

What amazing was making the A-main years ago at a non TCS race with my FF, was getting it set up for a TCS race.

BP Shadow, I didn't take it as being a dick, but the M03 chassis has been around longer then the M04.

It sucks having to retire cars when they still have some life in them, but once the parts dry up, its hard to justify putting a car on the track that could get broken once and for all. I have toyed with the idea of doing something with the vintage cars, though some of them will never turn a wheel, like the Dave Jun TA03 that I am working on restoring.
