A&e hobbies continues its commitment to provide a challeging course and a friendly atmosphere.

Recently, the store has made an investement to double the size of its indoor mini-z RCP track !

The has received an expansion of almost 25sq Ft. It is twice as technical now with some nicely layout fast sections.

In addition, there is not a full sound system which plays some tunes during practive nights (tuesday and thursdays) providing a nice escape from the ery day routine.

Curently A&E is holding spec races with a PN70 turn house hand out motor, and any hopups and fets. However racers are free to practice with any motor they wish.

Here are some pictures from thursday's practice session.

that is awesome, you have to make it to the racing though. I wanted to go yesterday but it was a litltle late (i like to sleep in on weekends)

BTW you was there on Sat?

2009.04.12, 02:06 PM
Yes I was there. It's hard for me to come during the week because I usually work late on Thursday but I will try for the next race. I'm building a 90mm car this week.

ProfoxCG
2009.04.12, 02:48 PM
racing needs to be later than 7pm...
Also, 90mm (AWD) may not be very stable overall considering how "fast" the track is. AWD are very twitchy.

No it's 90mm MR-02.:D Dunno on the lid, either Mini Cooper or VW Golf GTI.

i think the gti is 94mm. i want to setup a beetle or a mini cooper

whats this 90mm thing? - am I missing something? - dont most people want to run 98mm at the track?

mikey
2009.04.12, 10:43 PM
90 mm with a high mount?


could be interesting...

ProfoxCG
2009.04.12, 11:00 PM
oh wow, I just remembered.. that is crazy haha.
I may setup my MA01 to 94mm to see how it does on the front slaloms... although i think 98mm is where the game is at.

ocean rodeo
2009.04.13, 02:42 PM
98mm is a great on the track but 90mm is more of a mini's mini class. PN is releasing a aluminum 90-94 mid mount and it's going to include a damper system for under 40.00. Thats going to be the $hit for 90mm also I am going to see if A&E can get the PN Florida Regional in July?? Eddie just has to use the PN layout and I dont know if there is enough room:eek:

ProfoxCG
2009.04.13, 03:07 PM
yes eddie mentioned the PN race. The only challenge would be redesigning the track. I do however think, that the front section needs some further development.

do you have a link to the mount, I would like to see it?
its a shame the Ma01 cant be made 90mm.

I love my AWD, but im getting my a$$ kicked at the races.... I need to find out why my batteries dump so fast, or else im going to build a MR02 again with the A arm from PN, 98mm since I dont like the 94mm mounts

If you look in the MR-02 section at the reflex racing special project you can see the prototype. For the PN race you have to run their layout.

That layout looks REALLY GOOD, i asume the motor that will be used is the PN70T motor as well right??? For a track like that i dont see why anything faster would be needed!!

PNWC currently has 7 classes I think. They run Mod Pan 33/35t on that track too. Crazy fast.

Thats freaking nuts, is the space at A&E a good size to accommodate that track. It looks pretty massive.

Cesar whats the deal?? how come your taking a undefinite break for mini-z?? There was a awsome turn out last race and the penis section was removed. Everyone dropped a second or less off there lap times.

BTW: Nice Mini-z Peep Show

ocean rodeo
2009.04.26, 04:15 PM
That track is actually bigger than the PN layout. It's the same configuration except Grant uses 3 tiles wide through out the whole track where the infield should only be two. Yes A&E can fit that track only if they lay it out sideways, on the long side of the track. _|<

HUH????????.... the layout in that video is THE EXACT PNWC regional layout size all the lanes are as they are posted
the only diff is that i didnt have enough 45 deg pieces.....so i had to use radius in stead.....

Hey Luke, just been very busy with work and such. The drive down there is looong and other stuff. Maybe ill come back when the series is over and I can run my AWD. Unfortunatly a 70T is not my car's matched powerhouse. I need to run at least an xspeed. My other option would be to buy an MR02 or MR015; but I really want to start spending money on my "fake" type-R and finish my conversion, build my slot car track and other stuff.

My transmiter sold along with many of my bodies. This is not nessceraily bad, but now I have to find at least a Kt18 to drive my car.

Its great the "penis" section was taken out. I am sure it makes driving much smoother and less accidents. I suggested it to eddie last Monday, I am happy for your guys that he has taken into consideration my feedback :rolleyes: . Unfortunaly I could not attend the thursday event because it was my sister's graduation...

I think that if I go back to AE, I wont be formally racing, I will just go to drive my AWD and relax unless I decide to build a MR02 (which I dont think is fair.)

ProfoxCG
2009.04.26, 08:50 PM
What do I mean its not fair?

when I invested 175.00 dollars cash for my "specilly ordered" ASF AWD at AE,I was not told I was not going to be able to race it. I wasn't told that people were going to b*tch because now I have an "advantage". (this is what happened every week while we ran "open class"

In reality, they placed my order and closed the sale. Now rather than clasifying drivers, (and lets make this clear - I dont consired my self a top shelf driver/ A-main or even B-main driver), they made everyone run with 70T motors as a lousy atempt to make things "fair" for everyone.

In regards to AWD. My car runs and handles well - I know this because even with the 70T I have placed twice with dead/flat batteries. What I think is funny is that now that I am at a disadvantage (motor) no one makes any comment in reference to that fact that my car has a handling advantage - how ironic!

Out of the box, an AWD handles like crud. You need to invest alot of time and $ to get it run. (as a matter of fact whomever buys my car is a getting a greatly tunned car - ask Mike) But people give up on the tunning and go back to their MR02 because they are easier to setup, or they dont know how to set up and AWD car, or just dont have the $ it takes to propely build one. What pisses me off is this: I have invested time and $ into a car that I can't run for 6 months untill the series is over.

I will go back this week if I can get my hands on a KT18 and find peace within myself.

For stock class I don't feel thats it's unfair for AWD and MR-02's to run together. Mod is a different story though. MR-02's are just to fast. I was considering buying a AWD car thinking there was enough people to have a class but now I think I am going to go with F1 instead. I don't race but I still have a great time hanging out and practicing.

With that being sayed, why not build a MR02 once you sell the AWD??? Ill be completely honest ive yet to see a AWD spank a MR02 in person ever. I worked at Micro Motor Sport for over a year and a half and ive never seen it happen. Unfortunately what you have on your hands is a case of "if you cant beat them join them". It happen to me at the offroad track when i first showed up i came with a 1,200 fully tricked out revo thinking there was a monster truck class, and when i get there i find out no one cared about monster truck and the only thing dominating the track was buggies and truggies. So ofcourse i sold the truck to fund something else. Sure it wasnt fair but i didn't care all i was looking for was a good time. At the end of the day its not really about who won the race, whos car has an advantage THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT THING is having a good time!!!


BTW: i think billy is selling his KT18
