greetings mr. p...

good read through the threads... so you host micro's races along with the mini's... which is a bigger group? the micro's or the mini's

arc lap counting system... that sounds really cool... no more transponders to deal with... hope you don't mind my asking as to how much your got the system...

since you mentioned that it's the first time to use this system, can you let us all know how it goes...

thanks and more power (pun intended)

p.s.
what system did you use prior to the arc? thanks for any info....

Mr. P
2004.03.22, 06:45 PM
Herman, we have more Micro crowd on the micro at this point, however the key to introduce Mini Z to the crown is to make sure that your find the right set up(base set up) that will work on your track. This means that the car need to handle as good or comparable to other scale in order to hve fun driving it.

We have a pretty good Micro crowd that are driving both HPI and Xray cars now. The Mini Z F1 that we are racing now is something that most of the expert drivers have a soft spot for. We are also introducing other form of Mini Z racing(mr02 chassis and overland).

We have been using KO Propo ARC system with TD1 transponder for Micro size car. the transponder is slightly larger(may be 30% larger) than the personal transponder that AMB sell.

For Mini Z size car we purchase another ARC system specifically for MINI Z.(12 cars unit) This unit cost us $2,400.00 usd. The good things about this unit is that it doesnot require the car to carry any transponder. Please also noted that we are using both units in conjuction with AutoScore counting software system. The software will run you about $700.00 usd, you can check it out on B&B software.

If your follow all of the instructions for installation of the Unit you should not have any problem setting it up. Keep in mind that these systems are detecting Radio Frequency, adjusting the gain and try not to have any transmitters turn on next to the detection wire loop is very important to accuracy of the counting.

Good luck and have fun.

Hey Sam,

It's Fraz from NorCal. How the heck is it going? Tell Freddie and Debbie I said hi. How come I don't see Debbie's name in these results, is she too good for Mini-Z;) I'm just wonderin' when you are going to get her running an 1/8 scale so she can kick my butt in that too.[hahaha]

Do you have a phone number and directions/times for your track? I will be down for the Mini-Z nats soon and I am staying close to your track so maybe I can swing by and catch a race or some practice.

Mr. P
2004.03.23, 01:40 AM

We race on Tuesday night at 7:30 PM and Saturday night at 6:00 PM.

We race both Micro(HPI RS4 and Xray with Stock motor, 6 and 5 Cells respectively, in rubber class and prostock which means foam) and Mini Z. On mini z side we mostly race F1 with x speed motor.

We use 2 KO propo ARC systems for timing(one for micro, one for mini Z) and Auto Score to run the race program.

Hope to see you guys soon and good luck with you racing.

thanks mr. p for the info....

so far (if i'm not mistaken) you're the second track that's got an arc system that's mini-z specific (first i know of is at cp...) and it is great not having to put on/take off a transponder on the z's...

definitely the system is totally cool... unfortunately though, the huge price isn't...

just wondering... if your micro operates on a 27mhz am freq, will you be able to use it in conjunction with the arc system for the mini-z?

if it does... i can just hint at what you can do with the other arc system... :D

(unless you guys are using frequencies other than the 27mhz am that is)

Herman, with out opening it up I can only speculate the following. Price of ARC system for Micro is not that bad(Roughtly around $ 1,800 usd, compare to approx. $3000.00 for AMB), the real good thing about the system is the fact that the transponder unit is only $ 22.00 retail(the only thing it has it there is crystal for RF) this is much better in comparison to $ 80.00 for AMB unit. Can you imagine some one walked away with the AMB, at $80.00 a pop that will hurt.

I would imagine that the basic principal for the ARC unit is to detect the RF that emit out of crystal when it is power up. The main part of the box should be exactly the same however the filtering section should be according to what application it is being used such as 27 mhz or 72 mhz or ones that they use in the TD1 unit.

I'd like to say that if KO wants to go head to head with AMB they should build the system that would allow you to buy filtering unit separately.

That's my 2 cents

to keep things simple, my micro's operate on 27mhz am freq (same as the mini-z's)...

since they both operate on the 27mhz am freq, i was wondering if the arc mini-z specific system will be able to pick up the signal, thus eliminating the need for transponders...

or as you mentioned, it would depend on the filters that's in your receiver???

Mr. P
2004.03.25, 03:05 PM
Herman, we tried running Losi Mini T(1/18 scale truck) thru the system and it detect it nicely. The Losi Mini T truck happen to use
27 Mhz receiver and transmitter. We have not try other car beside mini Z and mini t yet but I beleive that it will detect any us(6 frequency) and Japan(12 Frequency) standard 27 mhz band(AM).

What you can do is to send an e-mail to KO Propo and ask them for the list of frequency that the ARC will detect and work it from
there.

The filtering part is actually in the ARC system itself. From what you have said in regarding to your micro rs 4 using 27 mhz am, I am sure it will detect it with out any problem. The only bad/good thing that I can see is the fact that you will be limiting to use only AM radio which may be good since it should cost less to purchase.

I would like to inform every one that we will run the overland race this Saturday night(March 27, 2004) also. So if you have a stock overland, bring it out and let's have fun.

7 20 8:11.56 Richard H---------3.33
During the qualify Joey Renna, Tom Acosta and Steve Vines were having titanic fight for TQed honor. In the main Steve just got away pretty clean, came around and use traffic to his advantage. Both Joey and Tom were having some tough time trying to go thru traffic and never able to reel Steve in.

7 23 5:00.74 Rod
8 6 3:38.57 Allan
Mr. TQed, Dereck Butterfield took off and led for most part of the race with Jose Rovirosa and Bobby Krusbe in tow. Allan was a factor in the race until he got hit and ended his run for glory. We also have Rod from No Motor Limit, Kyle from Mini Z world and Jason Yu from Xtreme RC participated in this race. While Rod was showing how potent his motor was, his set up was not quite there. Kyle is still trying to get his Ferrari to handle right in turn. Almost at the end Jose put a move on Dereck and took the checker flag.

------------- DNS ---- Bill Cook
Francis and James and Dereck were so close together until after 5 minute mark when Francis and James started to pull away(Dereck was mumbling something about Battery is letting him down). At the end the traffic became a factor and James went by to take the win

Pro Stock B Main
Rich Picard(no relation to the Enterprise captain) TQed with 42/8:09.40

Pos Lap Time Name
1 47 8:03.01 Rich Picard
2 42 8:07.88 Tom Acosta
3 41 8:00.27 Andre Foster
4 17 2:51.47 Eric Kim
--------- DNS-------- William Alvord

Eric Kim pulled out a hole shot and started to walk away with Captain Picard in second. Almost three minutes into the race Eric Kim battery came apart and had to drop out of the race. Picard must have felt a tremendous releive and put together a very clean fast run(5 laps more than what he qualified) to take first place. Tom Acosta with a lone HPI came in 2nd and contemplating switching over to X-Ray. Andre Foster is still getting his car to suit his driving style and came in 3rd.

Pro Stock A Main
Allan Alvord TQed with 54/8:04.43
Pos Lap Time Name
1 56 8:07.20 Freddie P
2 54 8:06.14 Allan Alvord
3 53 8:00.78 Ice Cold
4 50 8:02.99 Derrick Butterfield
5 46 8:08.04 Dane Hopkins

Allan and Freddie P led the group off the line while Ice Cold and Derick B. are working each other for 3 rd spot. Freddie P got the better of Allan and started to put some distant between him and Allan while Ice Cold finally put Derrick away with some quick laps. When the race ended Derick was tempting at 200 degrees. Guess he will need new motor soon.

Hey don't forget free races on Saturday, June 5 at 6:00 pm.
Bring all of your mini z out and race with us. We are using KO Propo lap counting system.

Maybe you didn't notice that this thread is over 2 years old. When I was at Netzone in May of last year they just had the RCP track. Funny I missed that thread in 2004 completely and was reading thru it as if it was new :p .

If it's still in existance it would be in Rialto and the name of the shop in NetZone.
