would it be asking too much to run a Tamiya FWD car in the Mini class?

Since it doesn't have the same final drive ratio and roll out as the Minis, it would likely smoke them. However, your FWD would probably be a good match for the USVTA class. We can get your car set up with their spec gear ratio so you can get out there and bang doors with other 1/10 scale cars. I even have a set of VTA tires you can run. How's that sound?

I remember back in the day ( 1995 ) I did battle in FWD in the TCS series, that was a fun class..

Who might this new { Indiana Jones } be ?

BTW
I Call out Greg Sharpe in the second heat of F-1 ( it will take me one heat to cut Sharpe )

I call out John B. and Craig S. in Mini

thats an extra $30 for charity..

And I'll be in for F1 If I get one by then.
Wow, f1 for larry. Awesome!!!!

Sir, I think you might have me confused with someone else. But, I'm sure you got your ass spanked in 1995 and "called" everyone out back then too.

BTW, don't forget to bring the wedding pics.

Just a quick update on the boost/timing for the RCGT class at SJCCR, We have decided to allow boost/timing in RCGT.

I dug into my closet and found an f1 that I hope will be competitive at Jackson on the 24th. My only concern is that it is a tamiya tyrell p34 six wheeler. Do I have to contact the FIA for approval . You know how the rules are these days.
