End of Year Touring Car Testing – Tamiya TRF419XR, Tamiya TRF419, Tamiya TA08 – Cal Raceway 2021

This year, 2021, has come to an end. With that, we were out at Cal Raceway prepping for the 2022 Touring Car season.

We’ll be focusing on 3 TC classes this year: Expert 17.5T TC, USGT and VTA. We MIGHT also throw in some Formula 1 but, at the moment, the three TC classes should keep us quite busy.

This video shows us piloting all three cars around the ‘standard’ Cal layout – all three feeling good with some great potential for wins in 2022.

Here are the cars and gear we’ll be using:
