Thanks for a fun day and also big thanks to JohnB for helping out with a much needed part. It was a bit hard trying to keep up with the double deck chassis in GT1 but fun trying. Congrats to all the winners~! Good luck at the Nationals.

Is TCS Nationsals GT1 class 17.5 or 13.5 brushless motors???

Joey I don't. I think it's a stupid rule that the tires have to be on spoke rims. What's the problem with dish rims? Who knows. I guess dish rims are faster

I have some new in package pre-mount sets I don't need -- and will bring to track for anyone that needs them.  

Joey -- you can use loose B3's with any insert, but must use spoked wheel -- no  dish.  Here's the update from Tamiya on rctech:

“For the remainder of the 2017 TCS regional races, Tamiya’s pre-mounted B3 tire (item 1015) does not have to be used for any of the GT classes. We are completely SOLD OUT. Instead, racers participating at the upcoming June 25th (NORCAL Hobbies), July 23rd (Access Hobbies and Galaxy Hobby) and August 6th (Brownies Hobbies @ Jackson RC Raceway) may use the un-mounted B3 tire (item 53705 RC 24mm Reinforced Tires-2pcs Type B3 Compound. You may use any Tamiya spoked wheel and any insert of your choosing. Of course, you may still use the pre-mounted tires if you still have them in your possession or have access to buying the remaining stock at your favorite hobby retailer.
For the TCS Finals we will announce a tire that must be used for the two-day event shortly for both the M-chassis class and GT classes.”

For the TCS race, do you have to use the Pre-mount B3 with the silver spoke wheels? I have a lot of loose B3's from the past. If not, I guess it would be good practice tires like Juan's.
