Home track - '96 kit with expansion set

http://i427.photobucket.com/albums/pp356/NoBrainerNoN/RC-miniz/Tracks/153238.jpg

Would like at least 4 more turns and a big turn for this track


Work track - '96 kit

http://i427.photobucket.com/albums/pp356/NoBrainerNoN/RC-miniz/racing/IMAG0187.jpg

It's narrow with just the '96 kit and 4-6 drivers. Would like at least the expansion set for this as well.

Pretty cool tracks. I used to have a mini 96 till I picked up some wide L's. I miss driving on mini 96. It was different.

Nice track NoBrainer. I got a question, where can I find the mini 45 turns? Can't find them anywhere.

Meredith @ TinyRC can hook you up with all RCP stuff.
But RCP is not always very quick...

Her service is great!

it's 2x mini-96, 2x mini-96 expansion, 1x wide inner turns, ekstra straights and extra blanks.
Awesome fun with 4x8m track!

my current set-up, Mini-96 not all 96 tiles. 72 tiles due to design. No expansion. I Did install large radius / inside line kit. I Use it in both Cw and CCw rotations. its fast in the Cw rotation but there is some edges that can stop ya.

Awesome thread idea :D

I bought my collection of used Mini-96 for $100. It's been the single best purchase I've made towards Mini-Z. :cool:

Here are a few tracks I've set up in my living room. I only have space to set up about half of it. I used expansion tiles on the straights for some layouts but generally it's too crowded in my living room for expansion tiles, unless the layout is really simple. Lap times for the first track (current layout) are around 4.70-4.80, with the track record being 4.50 dead. Hoping to break into the 4.4x range soon!

Looking forward to seeing more :)

The 45's are awesome. Many people don't realize how much you can mix up the layouts by incorporating them. Nice track layout NoBrainer.

Clockwise is the official direction but I do laps both ways to mix it up a little. Making an interesting track in a small space is a fun challenge and a bit of a puzzle. Lots of trial and error to see what works and doesn't. It's fun to see the creations others have come up with :)

I use the track mate lap counter and transponders, and the software is FlipSide racing. Works great! Never had issues with this system.

Great layout for limited spaces. You can also use the one piece Quick 45
sections to make a track that flows more similar to pro road courses.

Here's mine its tiny about 3 tile widths short of a standard 96 but it's all the space i have for now...

brushed 50T my fastest was a 3.86 lap CW. New brushless PN 5500k 4.00 CW and 4.11 CCW.

It's not so bad actually looking to tune a bit more on power steering into my current #1 car (the brushless).

With a 70T i had done a 4.22 CW and with my sons car which isnt tuned that well yet and a KT18 transmitter did a 4.38 CW.

we should start a thread for time trials on the 30cm track for all the guys that have 1 at home!! like hfay, i just broke my track record again down to a 5.62!!:D:D I started a thread in the tracks and gtg part of the forum if anyone is interested in having 30cm timetrials!!

cool idea i'd be interested except what I have pictured is all I have room for at the moment and all I have is one mini-96 set. The basis for HFAY requires some flexibility in layout tile# and floor space...

Here is my first layout for the track. I need to get some blank tiles so I can make use of the rest of the track pieces. It seems like a pretty decent size for my Atomic AMZ. The true test will be when several of us are running on this layout at the same time.

Well my thought was we could just set up like yours lets say and see what times were produced. then as it gets warmer perhaps move outside and set up a little larger. Didn't intent to follow hafay exactly just give an opertunity for us with 30cm tracks at home to compare times on different layouts just to see if we are doing well or not.I have a mini 96 and expansion right now and have ordered a 45 and some blank tiles but dont know if i have room inside for all that! Just thought it would be something fun for us guys that dont have roomfor the bigger tracks.:D

Nice! Looks like you have a mix of Kyosho Japan tracks and US or Spain expansion turn kits. Kyosho Japan likes their 30cm tracks to have a lower side rail as they feel it gives the smaller track a better flow and look.

You're obviously right, i originally purchased the track from the Spanish distributor. I began with a dnano then, last summer, after my first taste of a miniz i was hooked....
I planned to expand my track and, after few months waiting for the spanish distributor to resupply, i purchased the expansion and two wide turn kit from Kyosho.
Sadly i'm still waiting for the spanish to restock... because Kyosho carries just a few 30 cm items :mad: (the track, the expansion kit and the wide turn), also i dislike their lower rail, while adeguate for dnano they simply don't make the job with mini z.
When finally restocked, I'm still planning to buy a chicane kit and a Mini Long 45, i'd also like to buy the quick mini 45 and mini straight if they'll ever arrive in Europe to add a degree of flexibility to my small tracks.

This is the most ambitious layout I've ever done in the basement and it was SUPER challenging. It looks better than it drives and I never really did grow to like it. Always a meat grinder and the ramp transitions on curves upset the cars big time.

But it sure did look cool!

Looks great! Always enjoyed doing bridges with the tracks. People at shows seem to enjoy the over/under transitions.
