This Friday is another fun Ann Arbor Mini-Z GTG. So bring your Mini-Zs, Iwavers, XMods, and Epochs, etc.

New people welcome! Everyone is friendly and helpful and we have lots of fun!

Please bring $5 to help cover costs.

The event is at 7pm at EuroTec Motors; directions are here: http://www.eurotecmotors.com/Directions.html (Yes we have confirmed that we will still be at EuroTec).

We will be doing HFAY OLPS race #9 (http://www.saltlakemini-z.com/howfastareyou/OLPS_Event_5.html).

After the HFAY OLPS races we will try to do some Open Mod racing so bring whatever you've got for that fun time.

Get your orders into http://Shop.TinyRC.com early and you can choose to pickup it up at the GTG this Friday to save on shipping costs.

That was another great AA GTG.

Drac, that new Mustang was hooked up. Who knew a Mustang was faster than a Ferrari F40? :D

Any of you annarbor racers, have any need for a 17" CRT monitor? I have a viewsonic and a sony trinitron... they are both good monitors, the sony is one of the best of the 17" that were out... I doubt they will ever be used again, if anyone is up for it... funds from these will put gas in my tank to get to the next few races.

I also have a large screen (50-60"?) Sony HD tv down stairs that my dad wont get much use out of, since hes living in chicago and not here... and plans to buy a flat tv lol. Funds from this will help fund my AWD project...

They are too big to ebay, and I dont know how else to get rid of them...
