Tamiya FF03 TCS Winning Setup

I like Tamiya. Heck I want to name my daughter Tamiya Grasshopper Mendelson, but I'm not Jewish. Sometimes they do things that make me scratch my head, like spec Porsche bodies for a fwd only class. Don't they have an EG civc? Didn't they re-release a bunch of old FWD bodies? Yes and yes. The real question is; why do they have a surplus of Porsche bodies? Today I bring you the car that won the new FWD class at TCS (Tamiya Championship Series). Slick little piece, nice upgrades, cool paint (I like itasha), great overall car. Check it out:
Front Wheel Drive Returns
At the 2010 TCS North American Finals, one of the original TCS classes made its return with the front wheel drive GT4 class. Using the all-new FF03 chassis and spec Porsche bodies, this class what hotly contested among many different drivers and saw a lot of close action through the weekend. At the end of the day, one driver proved to have the best setup all weekend. Rod Canare took TQ and swept A1 and A2 to take overall victory in the inaugural race for what is sure to become a very popular class. After the race, Rod let us borrow his car to get some detailed pictures and even provided a copy of his winning setup to share.
