Sven,

I will be moving to the Ablequerque area early next year, so you can expect to see me some time shortly after that :D

That's quite a large area/track, are you guys planning on hosting a PN or Atomic regional? I would definitely show up for that, next year obviously.

Last thing, what are the cup race rules there anyway?

2008.04.04, 10:32 PM
Thanks Guys.
@ Flashsp-2
We do race for trophys 1,2,3, but no restricted rules cars , weight , motor etc.
The only thing is rubber tires and boby (no pan cars) , we have around 20 guys here 8-10 show up for the races we do 15min , 30min , and 1h races.
Yes hope to see down here.
I have to talk to pn racing about a regional race , I would like that we got enough track and we got the place :)

If you guys host a PN event I will definitely show up for that, again, next year of course.

Hood
2008.04.08, 05:45 PM
What time is the track open on Saturday for practice?
What kind of boards are most of your racers using?
I saw in your standings that you win almost every race, can you tell us more about your setup, chassis, etc..

Can you get us a price on the hotel for Friday Night?

It would be nice to meet all of your racers, and hopefully some of them will travel to Phoenix for a race occasionally..

Microracers24
2008.04.09, 02:42 PM

Sven

Hood
2008.04.09, 05:16 PM
I would think just Friday night in the hotel, I don't know how many teams (1 or 2) but a room for each with double beds would be great. We would hit the road and drive home on Saturday night after the race.

Any racing on Friday night before the event?
Can we switch bodies for the dark hour? Same style just with/without leds
I am hoping on being there..

Hood

Microracers24
2008.04.10, 08:39 PM
Yes you can , ok I ask my buddy.
Yes we can race some at my store track friday night if you guys want.
Ok let me know at least 1 week ahead if you guys coming for sure ok .

Sven

Hood
2008.04.16, 10:14 AM
Joe and I are coming as our first team. We are still unsure of a second team..

We are now working on getting a light kit.
Can we order a GiroZ transponder off of your website to get it wired and installed before we leave?

Can you please find out the pricing on the hotel room?

Thanks,
Robin Young
Hood

Here is a video for your club to check out. This was the final race of our AZGT Points Series, it was a one hour main event. Brad and I both finished on the same lap a couple of seconds apart after the full hour.

Sven,

I sent a couple emails with no response.

It looks like we will have just one team. We are hoping that we can get a room for both nights since you got us such a great deal. We would like to get a tranponder before the race, and we would come early enough on Friday to get some track time and have a little racing practice if anyone else is interested.. We have an AD car that we have never run before, so practice might be critical..


We have been running the 3010 boards with HFAY Stock Motor.. For our local series I run the HFAY motor or a Speedy 05. We know this will be totally different powerwise.. How long can you run on a set of batteries with the AD car on your average track?

Thanks, we look forward to racing..

Microracers24
2008.04.24, 09:52 PM
Robin , you got mail .
Yes sounds good there will be some guys here friday night to run some cars and ave a few beers :).

Depending you have 3 settigs on the AD board , and also depending on the batteries ! I have batteries 900 they last 25 min and then I have 1000 they last 35.
We have all the cables here for your AD board we can play around .
Sven

Hood
2008.05.04, 10:43 AM
We are really looking forward to racing. We plan on leaving early Friday, so we can have some tracktime with the new car. Just got the new PN pod and some other new stuff for the race.

I still have not gotten any emails returned. I checked all of my spam filters and don't see anything getting bounced or held.. No biggie, unless I need to do anything to reserve our hotel room. We can install the transponder when we get there. My only other concern is that I only have one set of AD crystals, do you have spares or crystals instock incase needed? We are on CH1.

Our lights are installed and looking good..

Microracers24
2008.05.06, 01:21 PM
Hello
Yes we have AD spare crystals ,your transponder should get there today .
Looking forward to see you guys here is my cell if you guys have any questions or something ..

2008.05.06, 03:22 PM
Awesome..

We would like to get the transponder mounted and wired before arrival. It looks like we borrowed another AD car, so Joe and I can both practice on Friday night with the new speed.

We are now on Ch1 and Ch2 for AD.

Can you send me the address for the hotel and track, so I know where I am heading..

We look forward to meeting and racing with you.

2008.05.07, 11:38 AM
Thanks again for the great deal. We would like to stay both Friday and Saturday night at the hotel.

The Giro-Z install is super easy.. We could have waited.. When we started racing with AMB it took us a couple weeks to get them installed in a good location and everything working perfectly.. I didn't realize the board was that small, it is even smaller than my MRT transponder.

See you in a couple days,

Robin Young

marc
2008.05.08, 09:50 PM
RCPMini-Z, I have a question for you. Would it be possible for you to make tunnel's and bridges for the RCP track? Also, for rally-effect, can you make RCP track's that look like their covered in snow on the slippery side? Also, how about providing a rocky look to the edges? I can picture an RCP track made to look like a WRC stage.

Hood
2008.05.11, 03:50 PM
Sven,

Thanks for the great weekend racing. Joe and I had a great time and learned a lot about the AD cars in the process. You have a good group of racers, and it looked like everyone had fun. When your club announced that you had won AGAIN, it sounded as though they were getting tired of hearing it..
Congrats..

We look forward to racing with you guys here or there in the future..

Thanks again,

Hood



PS..
Marc,

Please don't hijack a thread about a race to ask a specific question of a manufacturer. There is another forum for this type of question, but not in the middle of another thread..

It was great to have you guys here and race with us , yes I know I guess I have to step back in the next races and let somebody else win ;) .
You guys did good , we looking forward to see you next time in Phoenix on you home ground to race with you .
Thanks again Robin and Jo see you next time.
I will post the pictures tomorrow ...

We had a great time, but would choose to stay the extra night in the future. Joe drove faster on the way home than he did during the race.. :}

I don't know if you guys have a way of posting the results, but I would like to see the results for the final hour segment.. Great Fun..

The race came down to Sven and myself in a tie going into the final segment, with Rene just a couple points behind.. Early in the race Sven got a lap up on Rene and I. We battled hard to the halfway point, Rene went into the pits for his battery change about 10 feet infront of me. When I finished my battery change I pulled back onto the track just infront of him. Rene and I battled and ran hard for the first part of the second segment until I got away. I then caught Sven and got my lap back a couple different times, but could not keep clean enough to get away from him and try to run him down again.. I believe we finished the final segment with each of us on his own lap. Sven was ~15 feet infront of me, and Rene about the same behind me..

It was my first time with the AD car, and can't wait to start running them more. I ran mine on a Speedy 05, to tame the car down a little since I wasn't quite used to the extra power.. Next time I might have to try the Stock R, and find some forward bite to be able to use the extra HP..

Hope to see you guys again soon..

The Brauts were awesome..

P.S. They all speak German, so you never know what they are saying about you good or bad..

2008.08.09, 08:32 AM
Sorry we didn't make your regional.. Joe and I had planned on coming, until his Civic blew a head gasket.. (I think it actually happened during our last trip to Almagordo, when Joe drove and the car was having radiator issues.. I think he has been driving on a blow gasket since then..) I couldn't find anyone else that could travel with me, and it is just too far by yourself..

I would like to hear about your regional and your times.. Best laptimes, etc.. We have already run on the PN track once, so I could compare.. What classes did you guys get to run?

We are still in talks about the room, and then to see if Philip can make it, but we are shooting for the middle of September for our Regional.

In October, I am planning on coming to your Enduro. Hopefully, someone else will be interested in joining me..

In November, I am going to the PN Worlds in Vegas!! Are you planning on going?

Microracers24
2008.08.10, 10:44 PM
Hey Buddy
Well for the PN race my times in either class mod and stock wasn't good at all we practice every week at least ones or twice before the race and my best times was 49 laps in stock and around 48 in mod ... at race day i had trouble setting up the car in stock class I only did 46 laps in mod only 44.Before we where racing with track set up on carpet ,at race day the track was set up on wood floor and that was totaly different.I could not find the right set up.......
As for your race maybee I will come down to your regional let me know the date if you know more about it .
Hopefully at least one team can make to hour 12h race that would be great .
Yes I will be in Vegas for sure ..:)

Hood
2008.08.15, 10:52 AM
We ran a practice event, and I ran a 44 in stock.. Now finding the gearing on these motors, I know I can do better.. I should know later today if our regional is on.. We have a nice room in the basement of a bank, and are planning on September 27th if it all works out..

I am going to do my best to find someone to make the enduro trip with me..

We will be running stock 2WD, Mod 2WD, Mod 4WD, and F1 at our event..

Wes still wants that diff for the F1 if it is still available.

Hope to see you again soon.

Hood

P.S. I just heard from Phillip, we are on for September 27th.. I will work on rooms, etc.. Look for a flyer next week in our forum..

2008.08.18, 05:17 PM
Cool , yes would be great if you can come,

It is always a privilege to run with the fast guys or even go and just watch them. I myself had learned a lot by watching fast guys drive on the track. You guys should invite drivers, better yet call them all and have them watch yasuji do his thing with his pan car...

Microracers24
2008.08.23, 07:50 PM
Oh yes Im always looking forward to meet other drivers we can learn from them and they sometimes can learn something from us ( I hope;) )

@yasuji
Yes let me know a day ahead when you planing on coming I call some guys and hopefully we can get race or two together ,here is my cell 575 491 8229 .
Here are some pictures from the current layout its a two level track , but like i said if we have 5-8 guys we can build a bigger track in the other room , it only takes about 20 min.
