TCS may allow the Deans connector, but for the NorCal class, the standard connector needs to be used. This was decided on to keep people from charging at high amp rate.

So, I saw a list of rules recently (I can't find them now, but I think it was listed as something to do with TCS) that stated that we can use Deans Connectors to replace the white Tamiya connectors that come with it, however we need to leave the motor bullet connectors there. I'm leaving my white Tamiya connectors on for now, but come closer to the TCS race in Fresno at the end of January, I'll have to consider switching. Also, BadBoy, Mike Ramsey already painted his to be Optimus Prime... but it'd be interesting to see your take on it.

Fred took care of the motor "tweaks" with the 18,750 rpm limit with the 540-J and 540 torque tuned motors.  It's under motor rules.

In my experience with these motors that limit is easily obtained with standard break-in.  I am building one now and this TT01-E will be silky smooth for a box stocker.

Box stock class

Just got my truck kit from Norcal today 
Tamiya America Item #58632 | RC Team Hahn Racing MAN

 I like the format
Just assemble whats in the box..., use all supplied esc/motor chassis tires. paint the body add radio and go.

No mods except bearing set.   stock battery connector 4200mah batt  

this is a fun class   
RC Team Hahn Racing MAN TGS (Item #58632)



so far it has been a fun class..  lets hope no jerk offs drop in and start tweaking the class
