LOL That last post was Blake on my account!

We had a great time on Saturday!  After 26 years of being in this hobby, I FINALLY got to race sprint cars!  This was pretty much a bucket list item for me!  Can't wait for the next race!

Gordan, next time your racing budget is cut, just bring your VTA. I'll cover the fee, because you owe me one good race.

Oh, yes. Three snaps of the fingers up. Saturday was a fun day of racing, except I left my fleese coat at home that day so I had to improvise with a Walmart yellow hoody with California across the from. At least I was warm for the 8 minute SLASH Bash. I had fun and hope everyone did as well. See ya all next month.

Gordon.

No, Johnny, THANK YOU!!!! and Darren and any other vets reading this.

Thanks also to everyone who helped make the evening a success, especially Gordon, running the mike all night since he couldn't race. Selfless member there!

Fortunately the generator ran great for the last several hours when the lights were all on. I had to return the boxes and cables this morning and made sure that we get the Hondas from now on. The guy from the rental shop came out after hours and returned later in the evening. He now understands why we can't have one that won't run reliably.

Lots of outta town faces, great to see a couple from long ago, and I appreciate everyone cleaning up their pits afterward.

I believe the next race is Sunday, August 5th at the Water Agency and Nitro Sedan is the featured class with a 24 minute race!

No high power lights tomorrow night (halogen, mercury, etc.) Stick with small incandescent or flourescent.

Thanks

OH wait, I missed something in your post.  The 1029 tire that you spoke of is, in fact the slick tire!  So it would appear that we are in agreement!

Gordon,

That is not correct.  This is the text from the Tamiya TCS Standard Mini Rules as viewable on the Tamiya TCS website:

 

Mini Rules
Recommended Minimum Skill Level: Intermediate: adequate driving ability with some race experience.

  1. Legal chassis platforms: M03, M05 and M06 chassis cars that use the 60D size tire or smaller.
  2. Current TAMIYA Mini bodies available for the M03, M05 and M06 are legal.
  3. Any Tamiya MINI body parts set made for the M-03, M-05, M-06 may be used on any chassis platform.
  4. Motor Rules: Tamiya 540-J Johnson motor, item 53689. See section 28 and 29 under “General Rules” for motor RPM limits.
  5. Tamiya internal gears only. Aftermarket idler and spur gears are not legal.
  6. Battery rules: Any Legal TCS battery. See General Rules. Note: LIPO battery packs used in the Mini class must be a rounded profile for use on the M03 and M05 chassis platforms. Grinding the battery slot to fit rectangular batteries is not allowed.
  7. All M-chassis cars must meet a minimum weight of 1250 grams.
  8. Spec Tires: The Mini class must use the Tamiya pre-mounted and glued spec tires manufactured by Tamiya; items 1016, 1028 and 1029. See rule #35 under "General Rules" for specifics. Note: This rule is enforced at every TCS location.

The exact web address for these rules is: http://www.tamiyausa.com/tcs/tcs.php?article-id=531

Gary, Joe, I'd like to apologize for not seeing the change in the rule. Tamiya does show TWO sets of new 60 D tires. The 1028 set is mounted on the Suzuki rims with soft insert. The 1029 set of 60 D has a hard insert. Since the two sets are listed on the TCS rules, they should be accepted for Ground Pounders races. The slick tires are still NOT leagal for TCS races, so should still be banned from the club races until the board and members vote on this issue. That's my two cents worth.

Gordon.

You know I respect your opinion on things, but the rest of the tracks all stick with the Tamiya TCS rules, which allow any one of 3 different part numbers.  We all know that fast guys will be fast no matter what the rules are.  We will comply with whatever the rule is, but I am asking you guys to stick with what all the other tracks are doing, to promote larger turnouts.

Since the last race we have at least 2 new Mini drivers from our area alone!  Let's keep that going!  It will bum those guys out to have to maintain two separate tires for when they run GP or our track, or Norcal or Speedworld, or, a Tamiya TCS race no?
