Finitirax over in Daly City wants to have some racing going on. They have made a new track over at Daly city and i believe this will be the perfect time to have some racing going on while Hobbytown Fremont is getting there act together. :p

Thanks Mike for posting this information for me, I've been too busy with school and work to get around to doing this.

Yeah, I'm Leland from Finiti-TraX, thought I'd let everyone who's interested know that so far the roster is about 4-6 people. Blind, for now we're going to be setting up in the garage, but if things go well after a few more of these meet-ups, I'm planning on starting a Mini-Z club and possibly hosting at larger venues :) . Also, we might relocate from Daly City to the Cupertino/San Jose area as it seems most are coming from that direction. I should have the final event details by tonight, so I'll keep you posted.

That's a nice looking track but I'm 25 minutes North of Sacramento. I found a track here where the owner converted a slot car track into a cool mini z track with 20 degree banks, hairpins, and a fast straightaway. The material is a smooth carpet and the walls are wooden. I've ran on it twice so far and it's a blast. The track is located in Fast Track Hobbies in Citrus Heights. If anyone want to hook up and race let me know.

Ok, the event details have been finalized and there have been some changes:

Date/Time:
May 15 (this saturday) from 1-5PM

Location Change: (Most people are coming from south of Daly City)
20363 Leutar Ct.
Saratoga, CA 95070

If you have any questions, feel Free to send an email to RacingEvents@finititrax.com for directions and other information.


Revzalot: That sounds like fun, slot car tracks turned into Mini-Z tracks always look nice with various degrees of banking and under/over passes. Glad you've been havin a blast :)

Its all good Blind, because I've just received a whole buncha emails from others telling me they can't make it this weekend either :rolleyes: . I probably should have mentioned this a couple weeks in advanced, but no problem there as I'm planning to hold races every weekend :) (time permitting and such). I think to make things run more smoothly for every event following this one, I'll create a page that'll show who's planning to go and what days they'll be available. For example, if 3/5 people say friday at san jose is best, then we'll make that the final time and place. Once I've created the page I'll let you guys know.

This Saturday's event is still going down, but hopefully we'll be able to get more attendence for next week.

off topic: just looked at the autocross website and it looks like its gonna be fun! What year is your stang, and what you got under the hood? Good luck!

Saratoga works for me because it keeps the drive under an hour but I am going to a 1/5 scale race in LA this weekend so I can't make it. Please post here for any future events with a little more advance notice.

Its an `89 LX 5.0/5-speed Coupe

~260hp, 10" wide tires all around, ford motorsports suspension, and its real ugly :D

Runs a 13.1 1/4 mile @ 104mph - with a 3000 pound race weight that = 260-270 flywheel hp, and a 0-60 time of about 4 seconds. That's on 26" mickey thompson slicks though, heh.
