GT2- Tough call till the motor rules are announced...Keep an eye on Kevin M from Washington and some schmuck from Wisconsin
Mini- Craig Richter
well...here we go...

For those of you guy's going to TCS in Fremont. There is going to be a club race on Saturday. It's going to be the same track layout for the TCS race.

Talking

Man.... why does my name have to be always part of RCDriver's posts? I'm done for, so you guys play by yourselves... next thing you know, Gary's going to be at my doorstep the week before nats and stalk every move I make!

I'm telling you, Gary, I didn't do anything special last year; just did my best... and lucky for me it paid off (in dividends of Yen.) You guys have fun this year... I'm surely going to miss TCS.

Some of us So Cal guys are coming up Saturday morning to use the club race as a test / set-up day. Have any info on when track opens for practice, race start time, cost per class ?

Thanks and see you tomorrow.

Eeyan, reason 15 to go to Freemont. To see the first ever F201 body with the '95 Tyrrell Yamaha 023 paint and lettering (Mika Salo version). Finished it at 1:00 AM this morning. Now you know how I do the bodies and kits, and still race. Maybe if I was actually awake when I was racing, I might go faster !? BTW, am I the only TAOB'er to get a concourse win in F1 ? Just don't bring up tigger and GT-2/3 again.....

Uhmmm... You don't want me getting into F1 concourse... Although, I'm not sure if F1s have alarms and actual roll cages... that would be really funky!

I think you have been watching too much Unique Whips on Speed Channel.

Are you TAOB enough to get into F1 Concourse ? Yes the official challenge has been issued ! Brint it on for June. I already have my secret weapon planned and have all the parts, paint, and sticker sheets. May the best spray can win.....

Okay, now to find a chassis to mount my F1 body (maybe Christian is my best bet)... are clear paint jobs legal??? I'm going for the futuristic spacecraft look...

So my wife and I are sitting here watching "How Clean is your House", and they're doing a house around SoCal... And they go thru one of the rooms and there's an LST sitting on the floor and then...There it was...A maroon and white Toyota MRS TA-04SS with Tamiya USA stickers on it. They guy's name was Michael and he looked like he could have been a member of TAOB... Anyone want to fess up? LOL

I asked Fred about this last year... The belts may not be cut, trimmed, or in any other way altered.
