***July OLPS Schedule***

Season III is over and what a great time it was. Mini-AZ finished very well (won't know quite how well until the results are posted, but well I'm sure).

Now begins Season IV, and time for us to prove our good finishes weren't just luck. With the new HFAY Spec motors we will see the fastest season yet, demanding even greater driver discipline to stay out of the walls and get that car around the track.

Gentlemen, start your engines.

(Track layout TBA)

I'm working on it. it looks like the DB has been moved. Mini-Z asked for me to make a few changes and make sure everything is working out good. if so I'll have it updated ASAP.

I was out of town (camping) just got back and made the requested changes. So Layouts for Season 4 and Final Results for Season 3 are coming soon.

Yes, the Mini-AZ.com site is down and will be moving to a new server in the near future just as soon as I get some time. Busy, busy, busy.

***August AZGT Schedule***
AND
***September OLPS in August***

Emergency change in plans. This Saturday will be both an OLPS and AZGT day. (Posting in both threads so neither schedule is missed)

We just discovered that everyone is busy in September, with our only available club date on the PN Regional race day (September 29th). So, we are going to run the September OLPS (Race #5/6) in the morning on August 18th, and the AZGT in the afternoon.

The schedule below is a guide and will be altered on-the-fly to fit things in as necessary. To get this all in will be an extremely long and busy day, so please have your cars and batteries ready to go so you don't miss your Heats.

To squeeze the time down I'm eliminating the CW Practice Sessions as we usually get sufficient time after track setup. There will still be CCW sessions to get warmed up in the other direction so we don't drive like clown cars.

Mini-AZ is off to a great start for Season IV. Some difficulties in the second race set some drivers back, but they recovered well enough to keep near the top of the total standings.

Here's the Mini-AZ results for Race #3 and 4. A few of us seemed to struggle a bit more in the Clockwise round. I gave my AWD car a try this time out. Well, its just not there yet. You can see in the CCW round I did significantly better switching back to my MR-02.

We enter the next-to-last race of the season with Brad holding the lead, Spoon only 27 points behind in 2nd, and Hood 47 points down in 3rd. And 4th-6th are within 100 points of first with four races to go.

I switched to my Murcielago this month and saw a big improvement in handling allowing me to break into the top ten. Then the steering went away in that car, too! I opened the VR sensor pot in both my MR-02's and hit it with motor spray. In both cases the snap-twitch steering went away.

We also welcome Wes into our driver stable. This is his initial score.

We enter the next-to-last race of the season with Brad holding the lead, but Spoon is only 27 points behind in 2nd, and Hood 47 points down in 3rd. We've run this track before but with the old stock motors. Let's see how much faster we can go with HFAY4 power.

Hey Guys...I know this don't particularly deal with racing with you guys, but where in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area can you buy mini-z parts at??

I'll be out there for work for a week and like to do some "shopping" :) Any decent places that carry the mini-z parts and stuff?

Thanks - you can PM or email me

I got your email and have been meaning to get back to you. Too bad you can't make it, maybe another time. As it turns out we're only racing the OLPS on Dec15th anyhow.

Hood can set you up with lots of parts here. Frank's Hobby House, which is near the Phoenix/Scottsdale divide I think has some Z's and maybe a few parts. Speed Sports I know has one Mini-Z but I don't know if they have any parts. They just moved to their new location at Deer Valley Airport. They will have indoor carpet and dirt tracks (and 5min from my house, yeah!).

And forget about Hobby Bench. Say Mini-Z and they'll look at you like you just spoke Martian.

Sorry this is a little late, I've been extremely busy lately.

The curtain has gone down on Season IV with the December OLPS. And the winner is...

Driver's Champion
*** BRAD ***

Club Champion
*** Mini-AZ ***

Outstanding work gang, we swept the top spots and finally brought home that coveted Club Championship! Hood also rounded out the podium with 3rd Place. Well done.

Congratulations to Spoon for his 2nd Place finish, holding Hood off by 11 points. And to the DC GTG for an extraordinarily close fought battle for the Club Championship, coming within 0.0556 points of snatching the victory! And don't overlook the Ann Arbor boys, who were a thin 2.711 points behind DC to round out the top three clubs.

Getting into even the top ten in this large field is no mean feat either, so here's to TallGeese(DC), OnRailz(Ann Arbor), Will3KGT(Ann Arbor), Dusty Weasle(yeah me!), CCSON(DC), Joe Krosner(Mini-AZ), and Jonny(Stafford UK) for their top performances.

Thank you to all the clubs for participating. This is a very exciting series to compete in and we have all become better drivers for the challenge. Here's looking forward to another season of great competition from some very challenging clubs from around the world.
