Hey guys, I wanted to post to say thanks for the fun day racing. We had menbers from 3 different states GTG for a day of racing. Shaun from Georgia, DogbreathRacing from Oregon and us guys here from Tennessee. :D I want to say that DogbreathRacing is a class act and we really enjoyed meeting him. It didnt take us long to see that DBR really knew his mini-z's front to back Including how to drive them. We also had a chance to check out the lexan bodys by DBR first hand and I have to say that they are great quality and I think they have a huge potential in the mini-z commnity.

Shaun suprised us all with his driving skills and his ability to up a z and make it stick to the track. Everybody that raced won a few but I think Shaun walked away with the most wins of the day. DBR and Shaun are welcome to come race with us anytime :)

Here are some pics ot the 3 different track setups we raced on and also some pics of our cars.

Here is a shot of the first track layout

BASTARD...beat me to it....havent had a chance to get mine painted....got any pics?

Hell my IW04 body is so beaten up Im tempted to put in on that but that would be a waste of a perfectly good wedge....better put it on the MR01

Ninja
2005.01.06, 10:42 AM
well he said to use an extra piece of lexan or something, but i didnt get any extra pieces of lexan and couldnt find anything here at my house, i might go to hobby lobby and get some poly styrene or something

Just to let everyone know we made it home last night, no problems.
We had a great time racing with all of you, a good bunch of stand up guys!
Hopefully we can do it all again another time, I think it was awesome to get racers from three states and two coasts together, we all had something in common....our Z's.

Got lots of pics to post but may be a day or two before we get everything unpacked and I can get to that.

Phredd, again thanks for making this all happen, for picking up that lunch tab, and for being the kind of guy you are.


More to follow............

Thanks DBR, we like to call it “southern hospitality” :D . Glad to see you made it home ok. Looking forward to the pic’s.

Shaun
2005.01.09, 05:59 PM
Hey DBR good to know you made it home alright. Had fun racing with you.
Still trying to decide what paint scheme to use for my body. Thanks again!

We're all a little NUTS when it comes to our Z's aren't we? :)

I just placed an order for tires, motors, batteries, PCB boards, springs and more.
Can't Wait to get all my stuff! Must go faster! :)

Ok race fans....here are some of the highlights of our 3 state get together...

Pic 122 shows the results of a miscalculation during a high speed oval run...the lexan body survived but the rear pod was another story, I don't think anything could have survived the impact this car took.

Pics 125 and 128 are views of the group of cars that joined up for this three state run.

Pic 139 shows Ninja's car after taking a hard hit that stripped his car of the body and rear motor clip, leaving him both naked and frozen in place!

Pic 156 is the strat of a race with Ninja and Shaun jumping ahead of the field, and while Ninja may be ahead by an inch at the start, Shaun's 02 iWaver would eventually take the race.

2005.01.09, 10:57 PM
Here are a few more......

Pics 159,160,and 161 show a Ninja-ized CLK...watch out for that wall!

Pics 164 and 165 show off Steve's custom Subaru body.....ahhh steve, it's time for some new skins, you work for a Hobby Shop.....nuf said
