Please bring $10 to cover the cost of the race night (one fee for the whole night of practice and racing - a great value!).

NOTE: Transponder rental is $3 (http://shop.tinyrc.com/product.php?productid=20512) for the entire night if you do not own one.

The event starts at 7pm and is in Ypsilanti, MI (just southeast of Ann Arbor). The address is:

We have started our new Ann Arbor Mini-ZRacer.com season! This season will run from February to June. See the image below as an example of the Track Layout we will be running.

We are planning on having 3 Mini-Z classes:

Stock (including both 2WD and AWD) (Started in February - Note: you get 2 Drops) - Current Standings (http://mini-zracer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=33793)
Formula 1 - Started last AA GTG
Modified - (Starting in March or April?)

NOTE: We will be doing qualifying based on fastest lap instead of doing our standard qualifying heats.

There is a decent chance I won't be able to make it this weekend :eek::mad::(.

If so you guys will have to do your best to stay on schedule without me.

Last time we got done around 1:30am. I still think 12:30am is a reasonable time to shoot to be done by. Based on how it went last time I'd like to propose the following tweaked schedule. This has 10 minutes of open qualifying slots with larger time in between to do the swapping of transponders.

7:00pm AA GTG officially starts
8:15pm Finish Setup Track (incl. re-arranging screwed-in barriers, pulling down all the RCP from storage, etc)
8:45pm Finish Payment collection and Freq and Transponder allocation
9:15pm Finish Setup of ZRound (connect to bridge, simple test, register all drivers)
9:15pm - 9:25pm 1st Stock Open Qualifying
9:35pm - 9:45pm 2nd Stock Open Qualifying
9:55pm - 10:05pm 3rd Stock Open Qualifying
10:15pm - 10:25pm 4th and FINAL Stock Open Qualifying
10:40pm - 10:50pm 1st F1 Open Qualifying
10:55pm - 11:05pm 2nd and FINAL F1 Open Qualifying
11:30am - 11:38am F1 Main
11:50am - 12:00am Stock B Main
