Well, you guys were right about the tires. PN 6 degree rears are awesome and hook up very well on my RCP track.

Also spent some time running my MR015 I-series car today with stock motor. Wow that's slow compared to my 3010 FET MR02 with the HFAY motor and better batteries. I guess that means I'm getting better as driving it was very, very easy.
The best thing about this car though is the cool corvette body I put on it. I love watching it go around the track.

On another note, I just looked up that vid I put up on youtube of our car race last year. Surprisingly it has over 10,000 views.

Can you tell Mini-z's are on my mind lately based on my posting frequency? Anyways, I might skip the Petite-Lemans this weekend to save some funds. In any case, if any of you will be around here this weekend I just set up a 'super track' downstairs using most of the pieces from 4 wide ovals. It extends into a second room now. Just give me a call if you will be in the area and we can drive some laps.

No big deal. I'm going to try and leave the big track up until the wife complains. Possibly next week sometime will work.

Man I wish I could make it but I made plans to go ride in the mountains today. It would be cool if we could all coordinate to come practice next weekend if the track is still up that is. :D PM me your number so I can get directions to your house. Hope to see you all soon!

I got the new motor in my 2 mr02s this weekend and got to run them on the mini96 track. Torque, torque and more torque. on par with the atomic stock r on torque. I had to tighten the diff in the car I removed a bb xpeed motor from. It took alot of ajustment on the radio to get the drag brake dialed in the way I like (little to none so the car will roll). The motor has a tonne of breaking power. I think may brake travel is set at 4% now

The motor will be silly fast with some new hot batteries.

This Saturday I could spare some time in the morning for some track time. Maybe around 10:00 a.m.? I have to leave in the afternoon as my daughter is having her birthday party and it's my responsibility to take the two boys somewhere else. :)

Great. Track is still set up. Might even expand it slightly if I have room. :)

Have looked at any of youyr tires from last season.
The rear Pn8/6 I put wd40 on prior to running the reflex tire turned to goo.
