How can we get the pass to RCX for us just coming Saturday to practice for the Sunday Race?:confused:

Because you said there will be somebody at the gate at 8am. We will still be on the road at that time.

Will there be somebody at the gate also after the enduro race is over, so other racer from the Sunday race can go inside and practice?

From what I understand GT mod consists of; Touring body (standard Mini-Z, not Pan), any PN motor, any Mini-Z MR or MA chassis...

EMU thank you for the explanation. I meant the race... I should have added the word race to the question :p

Yasuji - It seems you took the win but had lap counting issues. I saw that you caught up to Tj on the last few corners but didn't that make you finish on lead lap considering Tj lapped the field?

i never got lapped by tj....my car was miscounting due to the fact i was going faster that the lap minimum
the only time i got passed by him was to let him by after i hit him jus before the jelly roll... once i got by romel i had the cleanest race i have EVER had:cool:

Congratulations all winners, thank you all team from San Jose drivers, you guys such a big Mini-Z crazy racers, and every time meet you guys also give me surprise how you guys improvement in Mini-Z race.

Grant, you are the man! made a good show in main. TJ also was consistent in all rounds and finals.

I just watching whole race again in pnwc-live.com recording, you past TJ just before the finish line 0.5 second, your car was flying!

Sorry guys make everyone confusing, this is my mistake, because in the qualify round, TJ make the best lap is 10.6, I made 10.9 and Grant also around 10.9, so I think the minimum lap time 10 seconds is ok, BUT Grant was flying on the track, he made over 12 times less than 10 seconds, should be around 9.8-9.8 seconds, so in his lap counting is missing 10 laps, when I watching the lap time with Paul, and I just watching whole race again, I can said you are real won this race.

This is the great race!

Thanks all sponsors RCP John, Reflex Joe, Netzone Sam and myself make this event happen.

Ty all for the live feed. It was great to follow up the event.
Grats for the winners, and Joe to announce, and John to let us know in the feed by the second what was going on in written.

PN, thanks for explanations cuz everyone who was watching did not understood the finale at that point (telling to shut down the camera when you were giving the prizes did not helped :P)

best regarsd to all.

I appreciated the live feed as well! I didnt get to catch as many mains as I would have liked to, but I did get to see the big finale of GT mod :D Grant and TJay both had great runs. It was tough to see the whole track from the low angle, but it was still great to follow along the action! When I heard Joe say Grant got stalled on a 20 seconds lap, I knew something must have been up with the counter, cause no one was stopped for long. Its a shame we wont see what the real fast lap was! Hopefully no one will debate the new results :D

Thanks to PN Racing and John Bilig for this event. Joe Chen, Grant Matsushima and Paul Clanton for announcing the race. Nor Cal drivers on both ILR and FPR for their support on this race for without us, there will be no mini-z advertisement to thousands of crowds in this years 2010 RCX event, almost 80% of the signed up was from Nor Cal and of course to everyone that signed up, Thank you!

I have a lot of pictures to post and I'll try to find time to do that some time today or tomorrow. I will post a few right now though.. :)

Philip Ng had came up to me to show me this live feed from his iphone. Really cool feature.

Congrats to all the drivers. They performed very well this weekend!


I received few emails and text messeges all night and this morning about what happened in mod GT race... Thank you guys for the concern but I will just keep this as it is and move on. There's always another race. :) I just really love how my car felt this weekend and the cool thing about it is that It's the same set-up as the one from FPR's track! Just different T-Bar that's it!

I will post the set-up on Both of my car's stock and mod. Yes, Paul Clanton drove my stock car. ;) He drove it very well and I knew he was going to be untouchable once he gets the lead. Great Driving Paul!!

Hi Philip,

There's no explaining needed. Grant had won that race. It was just a mistake on the timer, that's all but it he won it. Let's just congratulate him for his winning as he deserves it. He has been chasing set-up all weekend and was able to find it during the main. Good job Grant! I hope to see you guys in the next race.

/\THANK YOU TJ /\i want to thank pn and rcp/rcx for putting on the event and reflex racing's joe chen for calling the races
and most of all the 30+ norcal drivers that came down to make this event possible!
with that said i had a frustrating weekend with a great result
i went all over the world looking for a set up only to end up back where i started
friday i was there setting up the track @ 10 am...new track what a job
sat mrng i was there vacuuming it then we started practice...it was awful so much white dust had no grip what so ever even the stk class cars had very little grip as more drivers hit the track the track got better and better
i had tested every tire avali to find some traction but once the tread went away my car would just spin out....lol
sunday i got there early to vacuum the track on last time and every one was pleased with the grip except for me....
the first heat was ok i almost didnt make the start cause my car lost bind. in the race i lost grip half way thru
in heat 2 i didnt make the start cause my car wouldn't bind when it did it was already 2 min in
in practice berfore the final round of qualifying i got hit in the sweeper breaking my toe bar so i needed to locate another one SPECIAL THANKS TO LEO Z he had the bar i was looking for!
heat 3 my car had weird problems....it was slow and had no grip
my spur had been smashed....jus my luck...lol
any ways i preped for the finals doing all the things i normally do.(more than i had been doing all weekend) i ended up qualifying 4th not so good
i was just hoping to make the podium in the main and in the warm up i put my car on track and right out of the gate i was able to go 10.2 so i pulled my car off the track put my race batteries in and drove one more lap. i couldnt believe how good my car felt!...i was ready!
we were all lined up and jus before the start i lean over and apologized to all the drivers and we were off....
i will be posting my set up in a few days or so...:D

TJ and Grant - first of all, awesome race. TJ, I know you don't need an explanation but for the rest of the Mini-Z community watching on the internet, here's how it went down.

I just watched the whole race over a couple times, and I'm super pissed off! I lost track of what lap Grant was on after about 6:00 and what an AWESOME race the last 4 minutes was! I only wished I could have called the race the way it deserved to be called!

Trouble is that the lap time minimum was set for 10s. The whole weekend, we were wondering if anyone would get into the 9.x lap time so I just assumed that the minimum was set accordingly low. I looked away from the track to call out laptimes just as Grant started going sub-10s. The laptimer showed a 20s lap, and I couldn't tell if he had crashed or the laptimer had missed a lap. At that point, I couldn't tell if he was on the same lap as TJ or not, since a true 20s lap would have put him a lap down.

Upon reviewing the video, Grant stayed on the same lap and made a couple bobbles attempting to pass TJ, but closed the ground back up with some amazing speed. Grant ended up passing TJ on the last lap in the last corner for the win. Grant takes the inside in the hairpin, goes the long way around in the jelly roll, and TJ catches the rail in the last corner trying to cut back up the inside. When Grant crosses the line, he is still "on the clock" because his last lap was <10s and did not register.

Lessons learned:
There is no need to set a long minimum lap time. Especially the way that the GiroZ software works. 5s would have done the job.
I wish I hadn't announced that "TJ's got this one in the bag."
Drive to the finish, especially when there is any confusion with the lap timing. The times will be sorted out after the race.

TJ and Grant were both consummate and courteous professionals, as were all of the drivers. The weekend was full of confusion with radios, noise, etc., but I want to thank everyone for making it another awesome Mini-Z race! It was great to meet a bunch of the racers from NorCal and I'll see you soon with the rest of the Reflex team!

I want the thank PN for a great event. I want to thank Philip for helping me out when I broke a Knuckle on my 03. I also want to apologize to anyone I may have hit or got in there way. it was a great learning experience and I had alot of fun. Congrats to the Norcal group, some of the best driving I have ever witnessed. I wish the 10th scale guys would have watched the sportsmanship and learned something from it. To win and win clean is the only way to go.

As I was walking around the expo, this kid had came up to me and told me "hey Tj, how's it goin'?". I knew who he was but didn't know that he knew me as well. :) Nice to see you again Alton!

Congrats to all the winners and everybody that made the race. I wish I was there for all the festivities. It looked liked everyone had so much fun. Next year, I plan on making the trip down south.

Those pics of RC Kenon are PRICELESS !!!! Gotta love all that inventory. I know if I was there, I would've walked away with over $500 worth of merchandise :D.

Thanks Phillip and Tjay for all the pics.

Had a great time. Thank you to all who organized the event. Very impressed with all the N. Cal drivers. The teamwork and sportsmanship you guys showed was awesome. Felt a little out of my element. My son and I have been in the Mini Z Nation for 3 months, in all RC for that matter. RCX was our first event. We frequent Net Zone in Rialto with Sam and Grant. Didn't get to talk much with anyone. Growing up in N. Cal felt some nostalgia seeing you guys. I hope S. Cal can get a team going somewhere. I know the drivers are out there. I've seen them at Net Zone. Too bad most of them didn't enter the race. Thanks again. Oh, almost forgot. The paint job on those cars were nice!

I tought I would never see the day that Grant would run GT instead of pan car... :D Awesome race between you and TJ.

It looks like it was an awesome event. Just makes me sad you guys are an ocean away... but maybe i will get to race with you guys in the PNRWC Final this year ;)
