Sat Apr 30th at MHS. Doors open at 8 am racing starts at 11am

*WE WILL BE RUNNING I-LAP FOR THIS EVENT*

Classes are:
2wd 80t sportsman sealed handout motor - $25 / $20 dollars if you preregister
GT 50t stock spec sealed handout motor - $25 / $20 dollars if you preregister
Pan Car Open - $10
F1 Open - $10

Rules:
2wd 80t Sportsman will follow all current pnwc rules. You can find the full set of rules on pn's website. 175g weight limit. factory windows and windsheilds and wing and body restrictions as far as modifications are concerened

GT 50t Stock Spec: 175g weight limit. lexan windows allowed. no wing restrictions. no electronic restrictions. must run AAA batteries and rubber tires

Pan Car Open: no weight restrictions. No electronic restrictions. Any manufacture pan body plastic or lexan allowed. AAA batteries and rubber tires required

F1 Open: AAA Batteries required. i know alot of you F1 enthusiasts really want to see the barriers broken down in this class so heres your chance. Run anything you want. as long as it runs on AAA batteries and remains within stock wheel base and legnth Max Wheel Base 130mm. Maximum Car Length 205mm. Maximum Car Width 85mm. Only rule is if you run foam tires no traction compound will be allowed on track.

MHS will stay open till 9pm on fri night for open free practice. It will not be the layout we are going to be racing on sat but it will give you guys the chance to at least run on the track and get your setups and tires together. At 9PM SHARP!!! MHS will be closing the doors and preparing the layout for sat morning. At that time noone will be permitted to run on the track. Doors will open at 8am sat and you will have 3 hours of just being able to get used to the layout and fine tuning your cars. We will run 10 min practice sessions of no more then 10 guys. Just as we did at the last PN regional race. After that 10 mins is up those guys will leave the drivers stand and the next 10 guys will get on. This is a very simple concept and im sure all you guys can make it work as we all just saw how successful it was yet again at the Action Winternationals. I will however dedicate the last 10 mins of each hour to strictly F1's, F1 guys you can run at any time at your own risk but i will dedicate time just for you guys to be out there by yourselves.

I am also going to steal a page out of the capital challenge rule book. i really like there idea of the tech table and i am going to incorporate it in this race. I will have a small table setup by the announcers stand. After your race is over you are to bring your car and remote directly to the tech table and return back to the track to marshal. During the next qualifier your cars will be weighed and inspected. After yuor marshalling duties are over you can then pick up your cars and remotes and head back to the pits.

Also on a side note. At anytime during a race no driver is permitted to leave the drivers stand till everyone in that heat has completed ther race.

Top 5 in every Amain will recieve a plaque. Top 3 in all remaining mains will recieve a plaque.
We will also be giving away 4 Hot Lap Plaques. One for every class.

We will be running 5 min qualifiers. 8 min Amains and 6 min sub mains.

We already have sponsors lined up who have committed to some really amazing prizes. And more are comming in daily. Thank you for always stepping up and supporting MHS... the place to be...

Maj has also ask me to state that anyone who does an early prepaid registration will get a 5 dollar discount on the 80t and 50t classes. So if you guys want to preregister and save a few bucks you can paypal him at
maj993@optonline.net. Please leave full name and classes you will be running in the description box. Thank You.

the cut off for pre paid entries will be apr 23rd

so far confirmed sponsors are:
MHS
Reflex Racing
DG Designs
Team Scream Racing
Top Secret Motors
LL3 Industries
Dream Killr Racing :D
R1 Wurks
PN Racing
White Knuckle Racing
I-Lap

Wish I could be there to be a part of this race. We will be starting nitro by that time so I will catch you guys in the fall. It was a blast running with you guys in the winter. I will be back to Mini-Z's next winter. You guys need to slow Maj up a little. He was in a class by himself at the CC. Take care. MK

Hello All,

I can't wait for this race. It's sure to be another stellar race to add to the already amazing list of top-shelf races that have been held at MHS since 2007.

I can not wait to see truly the best drivers in Mini-z once again burn up the RCP in Saddle Brook, New Jersey.

It's sure to be a WINNING event! :)

See you all there.

The really Kool thing is we have Team Action in the HOUSE for this event....
I have known these guys for years and they always bring there A game

I know there are other sponsored teams....battery, motors, etc...
and I Dont want to forget you guys either but Im not sure who will have the dominating aaa or other part....

Lastly I cant and will never forget the Team of Teams...

For someone who isnt local to Majs, getting the car tuned to their RCP/ambient conditions. No 2 sets of RCP are the same, so the setup will change. Sometimes a little, sometimes a lot. Especially since I have exactly zero experience on fresh RCP, I have no idea what to expect.

Great event. Great competition in every class. It was nice to see some racers visit different tracks for the first time, and do well. Al, you did very well in F1 :) Especially since it is basically a stock SP1 chassis with a few tweaks. Way to go, I was very impressed with how tight some of the battles were from the top mains to lower mains.

The new track is nice... I stubbed my toe a couple times marshalling on the platform :rolleyes: I guess thats my biggest complaint. The grain going all one direction was very interesting. It changed the way the cars handled on the track slightly. As the approach to the corner was different depending on the orientation that the corner had with the grain. It is a very slight difference, but noticeable.

I would like to thank my sponsors, Reflex, Mantis Worx, DG Designs, HKS Hobbies, Team Scream, for products that we use to fine tune our cars, and find the speed that we do.... as well as Alan at HKS, Al from ARCMS, Maj at MHS, Ron at Cruizin, Willy/Bennet at NYRC... Without their support and dedication to the hobby, providing tracks to participate in this hobby. it would be very difficult for me to be where I am in this hobby. Having so many tracks in the local area, makes the diversity and versatility of the racing very strong. I just wish that some day we could do a multi track racing series, similar to the Carolina Cup. Every track has a different atmoshpere, and different setup. It is amazing that there can be this many tracks in such a close vicinity. We truly live in the most populated racing region in the USA, and possibly the world.

Thanks again for such a good event. Glad to see the people from out of town make the trip to MHS to participate.

I cant wait to see the videos :)

Well I just woke up after a long 2 days :eek: Had a great time. The 50t class was intense! Everyone had tons of speed. That was probably one of the most stacked B mains ive seen in a while. Thanks to everyone who helped put this race together, and also big thanks to Matt for the ride, and loaning me a pair of 6's for the main, after I discovered 2 of the pairs I bought were bad :rolleyes: It was good to see everyone again, until the next one... (hopefully the regional :p)

Where to begin! Thats an easy one!

Junior- You have taken "You Da Man" to a new level. As race director IMO you have exceeded expectations. I can't stress how it was such a pleasure to be there. You know everyone from Action had a good time because we all went to DQ for Ice cream after the race! We kind of had to put the cherry on the top of a great day. As far as I know everyone from Action left with a smile.

Maj- IMO you have the best track in the Tri-state for mini z and products and parts to cater to all your customers needs. From Planes,Boats
,Helicopters to Mini Z your shop caters to all.

Phil- Awesome win last night! I just want to know what parts I will be running on my car when a sponsor snatchs you up. I'm sure because you run multiple scales in differant states it is sure to be a good one! As a MHS Team Driver you fit right in! I guess I'm a Phil fan! Go Phil!

To All- It was great to see old friends and make new ones. This race ranks in my top 3 of my young racing career. My son and daughter seemed to have a great time. Now that Harley has bragging rights I'm sure this race will be repeated in my house for months! I just wish I could get them to cut down on the meltdowns!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Maj, Junior and the MHS crew for holding this race and putting on one hell of a show. I had an absolute blast and I cannot wait for the next one. A special thanks goes out to Junior for building that sweet all Reflex Car car for me. The car was absolutely amazing and a blast to drive. Also, I want to thank the rest of the Reflex Team Drivers, Eugene, Johnny T, Matt, and Mike for all their help and advice that they gave to me at the Race. It was great to finally put faces to the names that I see on the forum and create some new friendships. I hope to see everyone soon

This was another successful event at MHS… I would like to thank everyone involved. Junior did a great job moving things along in his first big event.. Congrats to all the winners and hope to see everyone at the PN Regional. In the meantime, I will try to solve my traction rolling issues. :confused::confused:

The new track is nice... The grain going all one direction was very interesting. It changed the way the cars handled on the track slightly. As the approach to the corner was different depending on the orientation that the corner had with the grain. It is a very slight difference, but noticeable.

So Junior, is this what you were touting in advance of the race? More info on how and why would be nice... :)

to me it looks like they used all blank tiles and somehow attached the rails to the rcp

yes it was...

what we did was built up a platform awhile ago... so we went and ordered nothing but blanks to fil the entire platform... as you can see in the pics from the race the rails are actually screwed down and gives a 10th scale feel... this allows us to change layouts in mins compared to the old way... this also allows for the same tile to always stay in the same place and will keep the track from getting grooves in it as in the conventional way some sections always have to stay the same tile and this tends to wear them faster...

by putting all the grains in the same direction no matter what the layout you will always know what kind of grip to expect depending on the grain direction... all turns will end up either with the grain or against the grain... it definitly gives the track a more drivers realistic feel to it... not to mention it keeps the track ultra smooth...

:) That is what was done. I really liked it, although it took a little while to get used to, since the spacing of some of the corners were not normal RCP spacing.
This type of track layout was what HKS used when I started racing (although it was not on RCP), on a much smaller track, but layout possibilities are much less limiting than RCP with the modular system. When the layout changes, the track does not need to be disassembled, only borders need to be reconfigured, so layout changes will be faster. The only downside, is that you need a platform under the track to screw the borders into. The holes from the screws are so small that it really shouldnt hurt the RCP, at least for a few years :rolleyes: Now MHS can get away from a box style track, and use more diagonals and create whatever layout fits in the space of the platform.

Interesting! I look forward to running on it. Will it be PNWC legal?

i dont see why not... we will bring it to phils attention... we can still do the pn layout just the way it is... on difference is the rails will be screwed down instead of the conventional manner... shouldnt be an issue...

Below statement from Eugene made me wonder out loud. That's all. I'm sure it'll be fine.

i think thats more due to not using a double wall. i dont see it be a problem with the regional as long as the foot print is the same. i like the fact of it being screwed down and not having the track shift.

First I'd like to say thanks to Maj's guys for inviting us to their house. Had a Great time at the race this weekend, despite the little snafu's I encountered throughout the day. My MR03 losing power, and suddenly comming back on at its leasure, and my F1 getting drilled on the straight during the main....Thank you Phil for getting the 03 back "some what". It was great to see the Action RC guys well represented at the event.
Crotty's F1 was sick! I'd love to see pic's up close of that front wing and MR02/03 rear end on the F1. Top notch!

See you guys Monday for some Dnano Action.

Below statement from Eugene made me wonder out loud. That's all. I'm sure it'll be fine.

This was the specific layout that we raced on. The chicane section was not a standard tile width if I remember correctly... I really liked that aspect. Since you dont HAVE to follow RCP standardized layout styling. And can have a tile and a half lane width if you want... or have a short straight that goes from one tile width to 3... I was just making a general statement about the possibilities that this type of track has, not saying that it can only be placed in non standardized layouts.

For PN layouts, you could always remove all borders and put another track on top ;)

I've driven your car when the race was over. You know and I know, that you don't really have a traction rolling issues, you have a driving issues.:eek::D

I will do you a favor and get rid of your headache. Let's do a chassis swap, you can choose any of my chassis, there are 5 of them, including the A-Main winiing Pan car.:cool:, plus $50.00 or even $100.00. that's how good I think your car is.:)

You drove my car after I changed the stock plastic windows out for the Atomic Lexan one.. This helped a little, but with my driving style, I was still able to make it traction roll. You don’t go as hard into a turn as I do... It’s still my issue and I will solve it. As far as taking one of your cars, thanks but no thanks. You are the only one that can drive those pieces of ????@@@@@ … That being said, you still drive them well. :)
