stugotzz- i won the awd and f1 main

lou- don worry bout it lou lol,, you could get it from almost anysite juss type in feigao brushless 130 motor. the awd ran amazing considering the brushes on your T2 went and i thought i blew my 100$ speed control lol. the reponse time and smoothness of the controls in amazing
- it was a good nite wit a lot of good races between me and eugene, i have to say it was my worst week between car problems and driving problems ever

honestly i have no idea yet because i thinks its impossible to run a seperate servo like the 1 in my awd so im not sure yet im probably goin to run the same sterring unles i fins a way to use the 18th scale servo,, if any1 has any idea let me kno

EMU
2007.10.23, 10:48 AM
You can use just the PCB out of a servo, and wire it directly to the Mini-Z pot and servo motor...

I do not have the time to work on it.

Pro version with Spinner speed control, TGR Servo, Atomic Chili motor and I will even through in the VDS body (see the photo on the board from Dave)

All for $175 (same price as the pro version sinister alone)

I never used it or even finished setting it up.

check http://mini-zracer.com/forums/showthread.php?goto=newpost&t=24262
Theres info about the servo PCB that was used in a few AWD setups. A standard Mini-Z servo setup would be used, and the servo PCB would be hooked up the way the Mini-Z PCB normally would be. You can also check the MR02 Brushless thread by ph2t http://mini-zracer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=24976 basically the same idea, but in the MR02 with a Mamba 25 ESC...

What are we going to do with you, Stugotz? ("Who's got the Tylenol?")

Hi, everyone! Just a quick update and hello from Action RC Mini Speedway. Those who have been racing regularly at Action RC can attest that the racing lately has been absolutely incredible. Our 18th Point Series concluded on November 10th with several close finishes for Championships, and it looks like our 19th (!!!) Championship Series, which began this past Saturday, November 17th, is off to another great start.

Here is the rundown of our current Champions. Personalized trophies were handed out Saturday to the following people. Congratulations, guys!

MR02 - Division 1 Champ - ME! (Hey - I had to fight for this one too! It didn't come easy!)
MR02 - Division 2 Champ - Bob Diamond (Finally! Stugotz got robbed!)
Formula 1 Champ - Phil DeLorenzo (Look out for Johnathan next time, Phil!)
MR015 - Division 1 Champ - Mike Vinogradov (A Chrysler 300M racing - who would have ever thought...)
MR015 - Division 2 Champ - Anthony (Sam thought he had this one locked up, too. Maybe next time, Stugotz.)
AWD Champ - Anthony (A multiple-class Champion! Watch out for Anthony in F1 too, Phil!)
NASCAR Champ - ME! (Tom Sr., Johnathan, and Paul are definitely not going to let me take the second Action RC Cup without a fight. I'd better reinforce my bumpers! Here kitty, kitty!)

This series, we will be counting 6 out of 10 weeks in MR02, and 5 ouf 10 weeks in all of the secondary classes. (F1, MR015, All Wheel Drive, and NASCAR.) This will allow drivers to focus on MR02 as always, still alternate secondary classes, and still miss a few weeks, as will naturally happen with the Holidays quickly approaching.

I hope to see everyone soon! If you haven't been around in a while, come on down! There's lots of new stuff on the hooks, lots of new competition, a great track layout, all at the best Mini-Z track around - Action RC Mini Speedway!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Another awesome night of racing at Action RC this past Saturday. The 11 or 12 car NASCAR oval race was incredible. Good idea to break it into 2 heats though before the speed and crashes knocked out our marshalls. This class has grown so much and all the custom bodies now makes it even more fun.

With 5 classes of racing to chose among it's tough not to have a great time. Thanks Al for another night of good racing, good competition, and good fun.

Hi everyone! (Boy do I get a lot of laughs reading this stuff!) Hope everyone is having a very Happy Holiday Season so far! I just sent a quick email to show everyone this week's layout - it's a great one! For those who have been running NASCAR oval, you know how much fun this class has become. It is filled with great looking cars, tight racing, and lots of excitement, and the class has been growing and growing. This week, I shook things up a bit and built a SUPER SPEEDWAY! This track drives very similar to a Daytona-like track. With the right setup, you can stay on full throttle the whole time, and you can arch the entire front straight and make quick lefts into turns one and three. This track has been amazing so far this week, and I hope you all get a chance to come down and try it. There has never been a better time than RIGHT NOW to get into the NASCAR Class.

This "outer-oval" track has also helped me design an entirely new infield, so the road coarse is really great this week also. Thursday night's Gift Certificate Racing and Saturday's Points Racing should be amazing! On the email I attached pics of the new layout as a road coarse and as the oval, and the latest points standings are now up and live on www.actionRCspeedway.com . I have no idea how to put pics up on this forum, so please send me an email at info@actionRCspeedway.com and I will send the updated email and add you to the mailing list if you did not receive it.

There is lots going on at Action RC Mini Speedway right now, so if you haven't been around in a while, get those batteries charged and get racing! For all of my regular racers, I don't have to tell you how much fun we've been having - the racing speaks for itself.

(Search "Action RC Mini Speedway" on youtube and check out some cool new videos!)

I hope to see all of you soon. Happy Holidays!

I posted info on this in the NEW Products section of this site. http://www.mini-zracer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26664&page=2 With the soft carbon bar and slightly worn rear tires my car was over rotating in the turns just a hair, too much for me to run as hard as I would like and be comfortable. When I put the medium FRP (fiberglass) bar on with the top shock (friction only, NOT oil type), it had a good amount of rear bite and REALLY good corner speed espcially on the small bumps. I can fill out a setup sheet and post it on here shortly.

Hi, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas yesterday. For those of you who are on vacation this week (both the kids and grown-ups), I am so JEALOUS!

Since many of you are off from work and school this week, and since I have heard the plans of many of our regular racers, tomorrow night should be a GREAT night of Mini-Z racing at Action RC! As we always do on Thursday night, half of the entry fees go back to the drivers in the form of Gift Certificates and Action RC Bucks. Let's get a really big crowd going and let's give away some big prize money this week! The more drivers that register, the bigger the payouts!

This Saturday should be a great night also. If you've seen the points standings on www.actionRCspeedway.com, you know that there are plenty of people still eligible for a shot at a Championship, and that we've got some really great points battles going on. Come and join the fun!

I hope to see all of you on Thursday and Saturday. This is a great week to get TWO nights of racing in! Start planning with your moms, wives, girlfriends - whatever - and keep these nights free for racing!!! (Take your wives out this FRIDAY!!!)

OH - And my 2 cents on the Stugotz duct-tape pic:
"Mumble mumble mumble how much time is left?"
"Mumble mumble mumble which race is up next?"
"Mumble mumble mumble did anyone see my battery charger?"
"Mumble mumble mumble Merry Hanukah."

If I do not see you, have a very Happy (or Merry) New Year!

I have done a few, and I love them. You never know what will happen in the pits... Battery swaps, losing tires...

I would love to do an open class enduro :D MR02, MR015, AWD...

2x 5 min qualify 1x 30m race.

With the longest endurance battery, at 25 minutes you will be pretty if you try to go for a no pit strategy, and performance on the track wont be as good as a performance battery.

Or you can use a performance battery and have more punch for about 15m dump completely and swap to fresh cells, check tires and get back on the track.

Most of my current batteries are old and have low capacities... So I would definitely buy batteries before an enduro... I would probably get a high mah battery and try to run on a no pit strategy, however I would have to make sure that I raced clean and stayed off the walls and traffic as much as I can to conserve battery life. Slow and smooth... Every time you crash and have to accelerate from a stand still it eats up more batteries.

Coming out of a turn, instead of jabbing full throttle right away, ease into it and open it up fully when you are already straight. Come lift from the throttle a little midway through the straight and ease off more when you reach your normal brake zone. All of these things help alot to conserve battery power. And they also are key to being a little more consistant. You dont need to drive the car 10/10's to win. If you back off to even 8/10 there is more of a chance that you will have a better result in laps since you will be much more consistant. Avoid aggressive passing, let the guy you are passing know you are behind him before attemting the pass. Ride his bumper a little, and pass when you have a clean opportunity. If you know that you make a tighter line and are faster on a specific section of the track than other people you are racing, you should try to pass entering that section or exiting it, not in it.

Its good to back off a little if the pass cant be made clean, rather than trying to drive your line through another car. If you happen to take someone out during a pass for position. You should wait until that person has passed you again before you resume.

Even in short races I never really start to push the car until the later part of the race.

my idea of an endurance would be one set of batteries.....all racers must have the same type (ex... energizer 1000s) and charge them at the same rate....(ex. 1c) maybe even get a battery mfr. to sponsor the race.....
then whoever gets the most laps wins.....It could be a 30 min race..... :D

My approach is slightly different: limit as little as absolutely necessary. If I was hosting enduro race I'd set the time, and let people run whatever they want: That will allow to choose different strategies for the race. This can be a slow car with long battery life (fewer battery changes) or fast car that will consume much more batteries. Would be more interesting than tightly regulated race.

with your race plan a guy with a fast car who can turn fast laps and change batteries quick will win.....

my race plan you definitely need a strategy to win.....
and it is not time who wins but the most laps period......

either way it gets done it will be fun to compete and to watch.....

Did you look at the thread in the Washing DC GTG area??

Those guys are running a 3 hours enduro in Feb - 1 chassis, 1 body, 1 handout motor for 3 hours...

Ialready have a team for the race and it should be a lot fun...When I was running at Pottbellys we ran several enduro - 500 laps, 1000 laps and it was all about pit and driving stragey

I finished on a 2nd place team (like 30 laps back - because of the winners AWESOME pit idea) and the 1000 lapper my team won :)

Enduros are a blast :)

Hehehe..

The team right now is listed at Team Kaybo - but we can do something with the name if necessary ;)

This is the first enduro that we all gotta run the same chassis - all the others I've done we've each ran out own chassis...so its going to take some planning ;)

either way it gets done it will be fun to compete and to watch.....not really. I see MR015 cars with stock motor that are making only 1 lap less during 7 minute race than the stock cars with PN07 motors that are significantly faster. Taking in account battery consumption....

Sorry to everyone I ran with in MR02 last nite...My car was a pure nightmare :( Even after making a tire change it only got marginally better...

It was nice to make the "A" in 015 :) and AWD was a blast - I think it ran fairly well for its maiden run :) and just getting built this week

I may see about getting up there next weekend, but most likely won't be a for a couple of week :(

Happy new year to everyone :):D

It was a great turnout. I thought it would be almost empty due to the holidays...

My 02 hasnt been driving properly. The setup is good, the new batteries made it very fast... but it just doesnt cooperate with me. It will occasionally pull right or left when no steering input is made. In the turns its not bad, its just as soon as I straighten the wheel, I dont know what its going to do. (which is why I qualified for the B main).

I dont know if it is the electronics, or the servo (pot and gears)... I think she needs to go under the knife for a closer inspection... I am going to try running a real crystal channel next week... red channel 2... its the only one I have multiples of :P

I think I am going to try an old classic car that I thought was too slow to be competetive... My old Corvette :D Its been sitting... no change to setup (except that the body is an Audi somehow). With the newly found speed that I got with the fresh batteries (wonder how long they will last), this car should be slightly slower than the competition, but consistancy should skyrocket. The F430 drives well when it doesnt go off on its own... Dont know if it is 'glitching'

I finally worked on my AWD. It is now a Corvette :D I had to completely disassemble it to get the 98mm Atomic Ti shaft out to put the 94mm shaft in. I didnt touch the diffs or the SAS... I need to fine tune it on the track, but it should be a bit better than the SLR where the rear was twitchy with K-20d slicks in the rear, but too pushy with PN 8 radials.

I have my work cut out for me during the week... Happy New Year!!!

Yes you are correct, I forgot about that. Thanks for pointing that out, Enzo with +1 ft rims +3 rear rims.

This is the pod that I use. I am going to upgrade to the new one so that I can test the 94mm stuff. 94mm is what the Atomic Mod guys use at there home track in TX. Curious to see if I can get it to work at Action RC as well.

You know, if you hadnt crashed in to me on the last lap and said, 'good race'... that you would have beaten me :P Great racing... Im getting the car figured out a little more. You drove GREAT, and it will only be a short time before you surpass me. I will try to make it as long as I can, but I do think that it will happen eventually.

Driving with the Helios is MUCH better than the MX-A. I still prefer the MX-A to the 2PL... I still have a lot of functions to figure out with the helios, but the general reaction of the car is a little quicker, and more precise (especially the steering around the neutral zone, which is my biggest issue with the MX-A with its weak centering spring). I wish I could have more dead zone though, I thought that it would have some sort of adjustment for it... need to read the manual for it.

Dont worry about it... It happens. I didnt really notice anyway. Only in AWD, but I wouldnt say it was your fault. My AWD needs a good warm up before it is run. By the time I get the 015 off the track, and get batteries in the AWD... I have already missed all the hot lapping, and my car runs like crap for the first couple minutes. (pulls left) once it warms up, the car runs well. Maybe I should leave it on in the pits during 015, with the same channel crystal as the 015... Just do a battery swap, and it 'should' be good to go. I think Im going to try that next week.

Thanks for offering to warm up my car for me :rolleyes:



I think I am going to take AWD off for a little... until I get things straightened out with my other classes... I need to really work on my MR02 and my MR015 setups. The AWD needs a new rear diff anyway, the alloy Atomic ball diff is all chewed up on the outdrives, and I think that is causing the rear to bounce on some of the corners.
