fyi, i have my pro-z pocket knife if anyone wants to use this for the hurda challenge. i'll haev a new gsr mrcg by then to put thru it's paces. also very interested in seeing what ken comes up with.

trg now sells a body adaptation kit for mr-02 chassis for the hurda body. if anyone expects to run thier mr-02 let me know so i can ensure we order enough of these.

i've sugegsted to the pretender that we maybe use this event as another chance to get a large track layout event going. the nature of this event lends itself well to this. that and it's several months away and will be much warmer:)

we should test another facility our for this race. saturday will be inside hw and space is limited, track size is limited.

be sure to order the hurda body for this and or the body post kit.

Ok, so I need a Hurda body and a post kit. What is the wheelbase on this body? If you havn't figured it out, from the beginning of this post, I want to run my 02. If this one looks too expensive, I may have to bail on it though. Let me know what all I need to do this. Thanks!

4th post... this should not be any more expensive than the body class races and tgr is providing the prizes.

Hurda Challenge
In 2008 TGR is launching a new race series which focuses on promoting open class racing.
HURDA CHALLENGE is an independent race series with the following base rules


TGR HURDA Body
Two wheel rear drive car
Max wheelbase = 98mm
Max tire width = 11mm
Minimum weight = 160gr
Motor = 130 Size brushed
Cells 4XAAA

As it can easily be noticed this race is not for only Sinister. We welcome all cars to race in this series.

All races will have minimum prizes of;

1 x Sinister PRO
1 x Spinner
5 x Hurda

Moreover each A Main driver will considered to be qualified for TGR Invitational Grand Prix which will be held in Istanbul in September 2008

Where can I pick up one of these bodies and post kits? Thanks.

Atomic mods has them in stock right now. 17.99 for the mounting kit and 9.99 for the body. So, for the price of an autoscale you get the set.

And here is what it looks like on the sinister. Anyone know what the offset is? I imagine it doesn't come with wheels.

Can we run the Rony Lola body instead? It is lexan and of the same class as the Hurda body. I like it because it is a very traditional wedge design. I might want to run it instead of the hurda if possible. Here is a link to it. http://www.atomicmods.com/Products/Rony-Lola-Mini-Z-Lexan-Body-Set__14147.aspx

I guess since I am going to have to buy new electronics for the AWD, I will not be taking part in this race. Any chance we are going to get together for some other club races anytime soon?

update: no responses lately from tgr:(

no timing system yet :(

we don't have a location selected :(

we really need to get the lcoation question solved, especially for hfay s6. i haev no problem pushing this back if needed. heck, if tgr doesn't get back to me asap, we will make it any lexan body and our own club sponsored event.

I don't know arch? I'm pretty sure we can set it up down here in fredericksburg but I know nobody wants 2 make that drive. I would like 2 set up at 1 of the locations that soulstice found but all I can do is voice my opinion on it. If U don't think U will have core in time then we might as well set another day 4 this race. Hopefully we''ll have the location issue resolved before the next HFAY race.

I mailed them, pm, open a topic and no response at all....do you have any informations about what's going on ?

So, I guess the question is, are we going to race soon? Regardless of the hurda bodies. I just want to get together and do a club run. It has been over a month since the last get together and I haven't even bothered to pull the cars out in 3 weeks. I even rebuilt my 02 completely converting it to a mid-mount and have not even run it on a real track yet.

Geese, I sold the truck and bought a 250cc scooter! (Really more of an automatic motorcycle) hehe, that is why I haven't even bothered to try to get out to your house as I am fairly new to highway riding and that is quite a haul. Regardless though, she will do 90 MPH and runs quite nicely. I bought an Italian (built and designed) Aprilia Scarabeo.

Not to be a stick in the mud but for now, if we are traveling to Frednecksburg, I might not be able to make many of the events as we are a one car family now and I don't really want to pack all the mini-z stuff on the bike and drive all the way to Stafford. Just my 2 cents.

i'd like to get an nova location selected that we can try out.

i just placed a tire order in preperation for the new season. i've really been looking forward to getting back into racing this season so i'm hoping we can come up with a location that suits everyone well.

i should have both my hfay car and f1 ready!

i'm still waiting for my mrch kit and build that up with asf for this rescheduled event. i've been eyeing one of those merc poly shells from tgr which are on sale at am as well. that should hold me over till the 07 350z gt car arrives in stores.

Sorry about that arch, I stole your diff height adjusters for my own car so I'm machining some more for you, as well as the battery tray I haven't made yet. :o It'll go out tomorrow or immediately after I get back from Toronto (few days' family trip).

no apologies necessary. the date has changed or will change so it's not an issue.

arch2b
2008.06.26, 11:38 AM
any ideas on when to fit this in? should we wait until after a new location is determined based on the next hfay race? there is interest in this still and silly to turn down the sponosor package from TGR.
