Video from one A-final of my favourite class.
Two pictures here of Atsushi’s winning HB TCXX with some new parts like shorter dampers and towers to go with them as well as a centrally mounted servo mount.
Great to see Atsushi, my number 1 favourite driver in RC, win this competitive race!
Another picture of Satoshi’s TRF417V5.
And another one of one of Marc’s cars…
A couple of interesting pictures from the TITC.
First Jilles TRF417 from a better angle with Yokomo BD7 motor mount (+perhaps layshaft and center pullies?) + different lower & upper deck.
Another picture of (one of) Marc’s cars.
Finally a picture of Jilles FF-03. Jilles qualified second in this class. Surikarn TQ’d with the HUGE FF12.

Muchmore delivering news by the hour of World Class racers joining their team of drivers now running the Fleta ESC and the upcoming Fleta ZX motors!

– Charlee Phutiyoshin
All of them now running the Fleta ESC / Fleta ZX combination except Viktor who’s running a Thunder Power motor.
Naoto’s Muchmore equipped Yokomo:
Not many good pictures from the TITC race but a few interesting details I picked up from what’s available.
Picture of Marc’s car being prepared by Kiyo. Looks like raised upper deck, probably to clear the motor mount center bulkhead (hey, I recognise that!) and in this picture it also looks like lots of ackermann spacers on the steering bridge.
Secondly on Jilles car what looks like a different lower deck made from different material.
And on this picture of Viktor’s car you can see the different material on both the lower and upper deck, as well as lots of ackermann spacers.
Pictures of Satoshi Maezumi’s and Marc Rheinard’s Muchmore equipped TRF417 V5’s.
The TITC race takes place towards the end of this week.
