I see a 1/28 PN mod, are only PN parts permitted, or is this a typo and meant to be Pan mod?

How strict will the F1 rules be? I have a few ideas that I want to try... ;)

Any option parts are permitted and any chassis. Lexan pn bodies in the 1/28th class. I will get the rules up soon.

F1 will be close to the PN f1 rules.

It would be great to see you guys make it up.

Eugene, my Pan Mod is allowed all parts, only limit on Body and Wheels.

Right, but in the first post here, it states only 1/28 PN mod, not PN Pan mod ;) So I was a little confused.

Bill, would we be able to use all wheels? Or the same as PN, would use PN/Kyosho wheels?

BTW, I really like how the body works :D

Ok updated with the hotel rate information.


Special rate. $59 per night for 1-2 nights. 49 per night for 3 or more. (ask for the maximus rate)

The guys running the races are great and have a lot of experience running large events.

So the LA Cali crew have confirmed they can make the event. I know our crew is super excited to take on the triple crown world champion.

Emu, yes any rims will be allowed in pan.

If we have enough people we can even do an AWD mod class. I know the NJ guys are interested.

Trophy's / awards are always top knotch at Maximus. We are also looking at having a very unique handout for entries.

My work schedule has me in Ohio this week so Im out for racing.....
There is going to be some Awesome Racing going on....
I saw from the drivers list the iron man from 1/18th scale and battery/cell guru is racing....John Cravotta....John is a great guy and Im sure if Bill Crotty helped him with set up he will be a racer to watch. Another local I remember from 1/10 SCT Nats is Rob Sylvester.....(Fast and Smooth). Im sure there are a few other locals I dont know about that will do well too...

This is going to be an awesome race and I wish everyone attending the Best of Luck.....:)

To my West Coast Buddies.....Dress warm and Good Luck!!!!

Watch out for Chad he has been sporting some kool new glasses.....:cool:

2011.01.03, 11:03 AM
Binh,

The layout will be around the same size as the 2006 worlds. We use either pn 6s with pn 10 fronts or kyosho 20s with pn 8 fronts. I would say the traction is like yours at the last race i went to.

The entry list keeps growing. Still waiting to hear from the NJ guys to see who is coming up.

I can't wait for the event. It will be a blast.

wcrotty
2011.01.03, 08:00 PM
grant,

good news. the highs for the weekend will be 26 deg. You should be all set with the big puffy jacket.

Losi, ilap and rcp give aways are in. Lots of good stuff. Pn motors and prizes are on the way.

Hi Binh

I Pick up the LA guys at 5:45am.... we will go grab a bite to eat. Drive up the coast stop at the lighthose to see if we can freeze grant when showing them the cool sites in the morning. Then i will open the doors when we get there. I think around 8 - 9 am.

I would like to thank everyone that came to the mini nats this weekend. Over all I think the weekend was a lot of fun.
The track was a very fast layout and the traction was amazing. ( I have been worrying about this for some time)

Friday I picked up the south cali guys from boston and headed up to Maine. We took the costal route so I could show them
One of Maines most popular lighthouses and to see if Grant could take the cold. He lasted about 30 seconds before he got back
In the van. It was a very cold day and the wind was coming right off the ocean.

Back to the racing. Practice went really well with everyone liking the layout and getting dialed quickly. Traction changed a little bit
As the heaters would kick on and off.

Saturday was the first 3 qualifiers with a resort between every round. Chad and Stephan were battling for TQ in almost every class.
By the end of the day Stephan was TQ in GT mod and Pan and Chad was TQ in stock.

Sunday was the last round of qualifiers and then the mains. Not much changed in the qualifying order with Stephan still TQ in GT mod/Pan and Chad TQ in stock.

In stock and GT mod chad and Stephan battled it out with Stephan winning stock and Chad winning GT. In the pan class Stephan was on fire and chad had some motor
Issues and Stephan lapped the field.

Again thank you to all the racers that came out to the event.

I had a blast.

Bill

I had a blast over there in Maine, those lobsters are so gooodd. Racing was pretty close from qualifying to the mains (qualifying positions were within 3-4ths, while stock and gt mod mains were within a few seconds.) It was nice meeting the locals and hanging out with the pn crew. I want thank Mr Bill Crotty for his hospitality throughout the weekend, my experience there wouldn't of been as cool without you there! Also i would like to thank the sponsors; RCP, I-Lap, PN, and the especially Team Losi RC products!

I am sure that all who attended had a great time. Bill Crotty was a great host and even treated us to dinner. The weather was cold but the racing was hot. Stephen and Chad were driving at a very high level. When you see the videos, you will know what I mean. I learned lots this weekend and met some very cool racers. Some might even make the trip out to the Tekin race. Bill work on Scotty for me. The best day for me was the Friday practice. I had good times running with the whole PN crew and local racers. The locals had very good driving etiquette and knew their way around the track. Again great event, hope to see some of the east coasters out west soon.

See you at the track.

We would also like to thank all of our sponsor's...

Team Losi
PN Racing
I-Lap
RCP Race Tracks

Most of all I would like to personally thank Bill Crotty...without Bill this event would not have been possible!

It was an honor to race on the same track with the best Mini-Z drivers in the world...I hope to improve enough to be able to at least get out of the way when they are coming through!

Congratulations to all the winners and we hope to see everyone at next years event!
