View Full Version : Chicago Mini-Z R/C Race - Sunday Dec. 26th - 50% Bigger Track, 100% more prizes!

2010.12.23, 02:26 PM
Our Club provides the Mini-z vehicles! Read the article (http://www.bigsquidrc.com/roar-nats-vs-chicago-mini-rc/) on Big Squid RC for a feature on one of our events.

No need to prep your vehicles and bring all your equipment. We have a fleet of Mini-z vehicles that are part of the membership dues. The membership dues for this event are $10.

December is a How Fast Are You series "Big Track Event" (BTE). A BTE uses a 50% larger layout. Also, instead of $10 in Al's Hobby Shop gift card prizes, we are going to be handing out $20!

We Provide

Kyosho Mini-Z vehicles—Over 30 in the fleet! Hobby grade cars that run like the big guys but with a true scale appearance.
Climate controlled venue
All batteries charged and ready to go
Dedicated RCP Tracks specifically designed for R/C car racing
Computer controlled timing equipment using I-lap
Venue with publicly accessible washrooms
Handicap accessible
Had a breakdown? hand in your car for another one!

Check out details at the website. In Berkeley, IL, one town east of Elmhurst right on the DuPage and Cook county border.

The venue IS accessible from Chicago via Public Transportation and a 12 min walk. So those of you from the city that can't normally race R/C due to a lack of real car, you can take the Metra out.

Google map of the Metra line (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=41.886049,-87.636051&daddr=41.892714,-87.906866&hl=en&geocode=%3BFWo7fwIdzqXC-g&mra=dme&mrcr=0&mrsp=0&sz=14&dirflg=r&ttype=arr&date=10%2F17%2F10&time=1:30pm&noexp=0&noal=0&sort=&sll=41.885729,-87.661457&sspn=0.038659,0.104284&ie=UTF8&t=h&z=14&start=0)

And the street view (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=41.892714,-87.906866&sll=41.885983,-87.904959&sspn=0.009665,0.026071&ie=UTF8&ll=41.892716,-87.907048&spn=0,0.003259&t=h&z=19&layer=c&cbll=41.892717,-87.90717&panoid=ExSkDgvMUozZeOppulHdPA&cbp=12,113.16,,0,4.63) that shows the building on the right and the spot in the fence that has an access way. If you put in 1200 lind ave it takes you around but there is opening in the fence if you are walking.
