702 RC Raceway Track News: Week of Apr 24 – Apr 28

This Friday, April 26,  doors open at 11am on a new layout for all day practice ($15).  Online registration, here, and the opportunity to receive a free event T-shirt closes tomorrow, April 24 at 8am.  Race day, Saturday, April 27, doors open at 8am, and qualifiers start at 11am. On-site registration will be open until 10:30am.

Please take the time to go over the TCS rules so you’ll be prepared for the tech inspections.

Please Note: The TCS regional rules state the M-chassis class must use the Tamiya 60D S-Grip tire. Unfortunately we have learned from Tamiya that these tires are in limited supply and will not be available by the TCS race this month.  The good news is that Tamiya will allow the new RIDE tire as an alternative/replacement tire starting with our Las Vegas TCS race.  The item number is 26301 RC M-Chassis Pre-Glued Tires 60mm Ride SC-33M  2pcs.  The MSRP is $27.00 per pair.  Note: they will show up on the Tamiya website soon, and other outlets in the coming months.  But we’ll have them available in our hobby shop this week.  If you still have the Tamiya 60D S-Grip tire, you can still use them for the TCS race.  Also, if you need foam inserts (tam53434) for your Type C tire or tires (tam51589) for your Euro Truck , please check your local hobby shop first or an online store because these items are in very limited supply.

Spring is coming next month.  Our specialty scale race is May 18.   Yes, this is the one with the Pit Stops.  Sponsored by Team Gravity RC.
