We have started our new Ann Arbor Mini-ZRacer.com season - running our new hour-long Enduro format! This season will run from July to November (2 Drops). See the image below as an example of the Track Layout we will be running.

We currently have 2 Mini-Z classes:

GT (Stock - including both 2WD and AWD)
LM (Modified/Unlimited -102mm Kyosho AutoScale)

Qualifying will once again be based on fastest lap.

Guys, please post whether you will won't be able to attend this week's race, and also post to the class/team name (http://mini-zracer.com/forums/showthread.php?p=388442#post388442) thread. Will post the full Enduro specs ASAP in a separate thread. :) :cool:

Attending, and just posted there.

I'm coming. Have to figure out what class I'll run (LM or GT).


2010.07.16, 10:28 PM
An hour long aye? This will be interesting.

I decided to run LM. Do we have to run the LM wheels & tires? Or can we run standard wheels and tires?

And I'll be there tomorrow at 7pm.

N, thanks for asking - you can run regular wheels and tires, you just have to run a 102mm Kyosho AutoScale body. You're going to love the Enduro format, I can't believe you've missed all of the long-format races we've done so far! :eek::)

I've posted a proposed new schedule (http://mini-zracer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=34747) - please take a look and LMK your feedback - thanks! :)

FYI for those who didn't make it last night - we ended up doing more of a test session, since a lot of us had a lot of setup work to do, so we decided not to count the event towards the points series. For those who did make it, LMK feedback on the format etc. so we can make any tweaks before the next race! :)
