Due to the low volume of entries and racer feedback, Kyosho America has decided to postpone the Mini-Z Cup. We will be searching for a more suitable date to maximize racer participation for the event. We at Kyosho America apologize for this sudden change and we'll be posting more information in the very near future when a new date has been set.

Sorry to hear the lack of interest.
May I suggest that some Kyosho reps visit America's best mini-z tracks,talk to the owners and racers,see what would fly on local level.Then return with a plan for a successful MiniCup.
Then Kyosho can advertise race results in thier choice of media for street cred and a popularity boost for the mini-z.
Another bonus is that the increase of business for these few tracks is vital.
Also traffic on mini-z racer.com increases which is a valuable website for getting advertisement buzz for new bodies and kits quickly to the American public.
At the time of the races Kyosho should provide a promise of every Kyosho hop-up availible at the day of the race for anyone worried about not having nessecary Kyosho hop-ups on thier ride.
My 2 cents :D :D :D
Always my best. :)
