i hated leaving early at the pn regional and missing such lovely ladies. but i have a cup to help win for myrtle beach. its has come down to the last race and its anyones cup to win, and i hate to let my team down. landon and i have talked about trying to make it up for a one day event that you put on, as doing the regional is a chore. atleast the one day events can be done with out to much missed work. keep us posted on the next ones you have planned for sure.

daves a perv, atleast his poster is. but who can blame him? lol

This is on the same date as the Carolina Cup race... so I now have to decide between the two :( Its much warmer down south, and I do want to win the Carolina Cup 2010 championship season... But this is so close, and will have great competition.

Im thinking most racers have custom pitboards, toolboxes etc.....
something to attach to them. Nothing huge 2.5 x 4 flat plaque
Something that will be shown and displayed like a badge and not tossed in a closet or thrown away.

Hey George,

Hope things are going well for you. I had swine flu, bronchitis, and now Pnuemonia. This past Friday was my first time in over a month even stepping foot inside MHS, so I havent been there either. I am on the road to recovery I hope. Maj and I did speak about extending the hardware further on down the line but decided to stick with format that we posted. Talk to you soon!:D

what gearing???
I know if your using 48 pitch you can use mini monster/overland pinions
which go up to like 16t or you can use x ray 1/18th scale pinions:cool:

How much gearing can the 80t take.......:D

machgo5go
2010.11.28, 08:40 PM
good to hear that eddie,did you try comparing it to the 70 turn lap time on our layout?
Yes, my personal best 70 Turn from Friday night race was 9.8
so in the same gearing was only 10.8 from 54/14 of 3.857.
It topped out way too early in 50% of straighter way.
Afterward, I experiment by gearing down of 52/12 gearing of 4.333
and achieved 10.3 with now topping out at 75 % of the straighter way
It had much better low end torque in similar to 70 T at the infield.
I original thought of gearing it high but this motor tops out too early in RPM so have to try low.
Sorry that I only had time to run 2 packs of battery & no time for motor break in due to Sunday's shorter store hours.
I can see that it will be very interesting fun time in getting the best of it.

For the second year in a row the GSS was a blast. What an amazing stock A Main, numerous awesome battles between Mikey, Edel and Junior. One. Day I hope to drive half as good as these three. Once again props to Mr. Maj Banting for putting on an awesome race at the best mini-z venue on the planet and of course not enough praise can be given to the man on the mic Alex Valdes for putting on an entertaining race and keeping it all running like a Swiss watch!

Congratulations Mikey :) You used to be a fast lapper, but now have showed that you also have the patience and consistency that it takes to win an event. I was very impressed with how you handled the pressure given to you by Edel.

I would also like to congratulate Mike Gee for his win in AWD.

I would like to thank Maj, Dave, Alex, as well as all the sponsors of the event; PN Racing, R1Wurks, RC Utopia... It was a great event with plenty of good competition.

I missed Friday practice, and came to the track Saturday without knowing which classes I was going to race in. Without F1 being run, it was a toss up for the class choice. I spoke to the team drivers to see which classes they were running so we could cover the classes as best as we could. I chose to run Mod GT and Pan open. These were classes that I had run at the PNWC, and used the same cars with minor tweaks and adjustments to fine tune to the layout.

I qualified well, putting the car 2nd on the grid in Pan and 3rd on the grid in Mod.

I didnt have a car to battle with Dave in Mod, but felt that I might have enough to beat Sai. I had a few unforced errors, and lost ground to Sai, but managed to hold on to the third position.

In Pan, I broke the front bumper in warm up for the mains, as did Junior. We both did what we could to repair them before the main. I knew from qualifying that we had similar pace, with Junior slightly faster (he did a low 9.6s fast lap, I did a high 9.6s fast lap). Being a 10 minute main, and having a broken/repaired bumper, I decided to drive conservatively for the main, coasting more and using very little brake. I got a good break at the start, and pulled a gap. Junior would close it up, but lose it as his body bounced around... I managed to hold on and get the win :) I tried to do what I saw Mikey do in the 80t main. Stay clean, and focus on consistency and defend if needed.

It was a great event, and I look forward to next years GSS.

This was a great event as always….I just want to say thanks to all the people/companies that made this race possible, especially my sponsors MHS and R1Wurks. MHS provides the best racing facility to the mini-z community and produces A main caliber racers. All of which are very fast… The R1Wurks batteries made my car ballistic. I TQ’ed and had the fastest hot lap in 80 turn stock (10.3)!! I must also mention, 3c-designs “Ruby Lube” because it played a big influence on my cars handling this past weekend. Now we move onto Mikey…. Mikey, you ran a great race and remained calm and collected throughout the A main. You deserved to win that race and don’t let anyone else tell you anything different. See you at the track Mr. Garden State Shootout winner…. LOL :)

Thanks for the kind words Guys!........ I was hoping that I can also be awesome behind the wheel too. I got both cars to work real nice and go with a set-up that works week in and week out but I chose to run 70T in both Mod Sedan and Pan Car...... I thought by being smooth I can get it done but I was wrong. Still very happy that my cars didn't keep me from doing better.

See you Guys soon......... Again, Congrats to all the winners!!

EMU
2010.12.07, 11:29 AM
Alex, an ATM USA or Standard BB, or PN 50t motor may have been a better option than the 70t. Not a huge increase in power, but more power on the top to get down the straight faster. For 70t cars, you definitely held your own. Where you had more corner speed, if you were chasing, you would be held up in the corners, and wouldnt be able to stay in the draft down the straight. I used a PN 43t in Pan and an ATM Z2 in mod GT. I was going to drop a 33t in my pan car, but didnt feel that I needed anything more than the 43t.

had a absolute blast at this years garden state shootout... congrats to all the winners... my cars felt awesome throughout the day but i ran into a string of bad luck during the mains... no biggie... its racing and its happened to all of us... great to see the out of towners there as its always a blast running with you guys... congrats to everyone on there wins... thanks to all the sponsors who continue to step up and provide us with great prizes to enable MHS to always be a step ahead of the curve when it comes to holding large race events like this...

Shout outs to Team MHS for putting on a great showing... Mikey for his amain stock win... he showed vast improvments in his driving and his abilitly to handle himself in a mature manner in both pressure and post race.... Thank You Maj for continuing to provide us with a state of the art track... a place where week in and week out we are provided with whatever it takes to be the best we can be on and off the track... Thank You Alex for always bringing such color to all of our events... I have said it before and i will say it again... you are family... Thank you to all of the out of towners who made the trip to join us in our race.... Great showing by team reflex.... Congrats again to Johnny and Edel on being picked up by R1 batteries... you guys are a great addition to any team and i know your time and efforts will be appreciated by team R1....

Thank You Sammy Saks.... ;)

To my sponsors...
Thank you MHS for always providing me with what is needed to keep myself competitive...
Thank You 3C-Designs for the products you provide me to keep my car dialed... ruby lube played a huge factor in enabling me to get the power to the ground wit my pan car which resulted in the fasted lap of the day...

This event made me look back to where i was when i started racing miniz 2.5 years ago... i have grown leaps by contuning support from MHS and the members that attend the track every week... I hope that i am at the point now where i can return the favor to other racers by helping them grow in the the same positive manner that Maj and his crew helped me to grow... Its amazing to see where MHS is today from when i started with Maj, and i wish Maj and all the rest of you guys the best of luck in the new year to come... May we all be happy, healthy and blessed with family and friends...

Hello to all and thanks for the guys and gals on making this year GSS another one to remember.

So much to say but dont want to take people time reading my long A$$ posts... heheh..:p

Here goes, congratulations to all the winers from winning the A main to the B's and C's.

Here are the list of drivers in random order that I just wanted to recap of the highlights of this race.

Edle, great job on your hot laps and Tq in the stock 80t class. I knew having you as one of the Team Driver for MHS is a great asset to the team. We have a high quality of racers at the GSS that any one can win down from the 8th on the grid.

Roland, You are still number one in my book you was down from 6th or 7th place in the first few min of the stock A main race and still was able to pull of a 2nd place. I guess it's true you get better with aged...:D

Mikey, Thanks for all your help on being that pesty tech guy or kid. They always say kids are the best place to get the honest answers...;) Verry proud on your A main win... You will be hard to beat. I hope you start racing again and forget about paint balling... hehe. I will be honest that I was a tad bitter that I got beat from a kid that has not raced over a month at MHS and still pull off a win. But it's all good kid....:p

Jr, Dont take this the wrong way I had you as the under dog in this event. Tq in pan and awd and having the fastest Lap on that track is pure amazement (in a good way). I thought we lost you to the paintball gods... But it shows in big events you are one of the few that we have to worry about. (Nice sand bagging in the club racing) hehehe. Tough break on the A main in stock after looking at the results you was in the lead more then 50% of that race. better luck next time..

Dave, Like always you are a machine great job on your TQ and win in 2wd MOD. Great work on running this GSS event.

Mike Gee and EMU, also congrats on your A main wins. Emu you always can pull it off in the end. Once you get you and your cars acclimated to the track and environment you are hard man to beat... Can only imagine if you had weeks time at the MHS track how well you can do

John T, Hope all is well with your son. Sorry you had to leave in the mains. I know you would of put a great show. 3rd on the grid is more then enough to keep me happy since you are TD for MHS. keep up the great work.

Sammy, I know I may not be your favorite person right now but I had to do what was best for the goodnest of miniZ racing. Just to make clear and hope people understand Sammy is verry enthusiast racer he like to give it 110% on what ever he gets into. I know in his mind he had no intention on breaking any rules. I see sammy as person who just wants to make his situation the best it can be. I would of loved to see him raced that A main cuz I know it would of even more of a race to remember. I also understand why he did not, we all have our principles just like me so I can respect that. Thanks again for making this event.

For all the out of towners who made this year GSS Larry,Matt,Mike K,Saint,Bill,Scott,Alex,Mike G, thanks for comming out and alway have a blast and pleasure to race with you guys.

PS. Almost forgot someone shoot me!! hehe.. Thanks again Alex V. for MC'ing the GSS race it just gets better and better.

Well said Maj and Junior!!......... Keeping a good thing going is a labor of love. Going into this weekend, it was more important for me to put on a great show and keeping the program running smoothly and on time. The racing believe it or not, is secondary......... I actually enjoy a quiet Sat, hanging in the pits with my Buds, eating some great food and enjoying the chatter and race input than knuckle, balls to the wall, Qualifying and Main action.

The Mini-Z experience has helped with my Primary RC program, Carpet and Asphalt Racing. What I've been able to take in over the years is priceless. When I found out that Lexan Pan Bodies were available, I couldn't wait to take to the track again. It has been everything I imagined. So much fun wheeling it around on Sat......A special "Thank You" to Dave for helping me with my cars on Sat. They were Dialed!!

....... Again, to our Mini-Z Family and everyone involved with making this program flourish throughout the years and beyond. I will always do what I can to help keep this program competitive and yet, FUN!!

Hope to see you all real soon. Thank you all for coming out and share a day of racing with us. The new year coming is showing a lot of promise........ God bless you all and ......... Happy Racing!!:)
