Race Event Saturday 3/26/10 7pm - Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti, MI - Mini-ZRacer.com

Join us for another Ann Arbor Mini-Z GTG (AA GTG) on Saturday March 26th, 2010 at 7pm. We primarily run Mini-Zs (2WD, AWD, and F1s) (MR-03, MR-02, MA-010, MR-01). But if you want you can bring your DNanos, Iwavers, XMods, Micro-Ts, and Epochs, etc. Some people even bring their rc helicopters and airplanes

New people are welcome as always! Everyone is friendly and helpful and we have lots of fun!

NOTE: here's the easy to remember URL to keep up to date with our events: http://www.mini-zracer.com/annarbor

Please bring $10 to cover the cost of the race night (one fee for the whole night of practice and racing - a great value!).
Reminder: You can now pay your entry fees online.

NOTE: Transponder rental is $3 for the entire night if you do not own one.

This is a standard Saturday Event that starts at 7pm.

It is in Ypsilanti, MI (just southeast of Ann Arbor). The address is:
3140 Carpenter, Ypsilanti, MI 48197

Reminder that Dojo 4 is now 3140 Carpenter - park around the back of the building and use the back door to since the storefront section is closed when we start.

Get your orders into http://Shop.TinyRC.com early and you can choose to pick it up at this AA GTG Event to save on shipping costs.

Post here to let us know what time you plan to come and what time you need to leave.

We have started our new 2011 Ann Arbor Mini-ZRacer.com season! And we have decided to rejoin HowFastAreYou.com (HFAY) for its season # 11! We will be doing the HFAY races one week, and then do our personal big track race the other AA GTG week during the month. HFAY is a smaller layout than we typically do but is fun in that you can compete and compare your times to racers all around the world

Since we did HFAY last time (Friday Jan 14th) we will be doing our bigger track layout this time (see below for an example of a big track we run).

(We didn't get in the HFAY Formula 1 races in last time so maybe we can do a makeup of those races if enough people want to and we have enough time)

I drew up the new Austin F1 circuit... can someone with the correct stock check to see if the z-round file is actually a build-able track? I included the .rcp file in the zip file.

Depends on my health. I can't seem to fight off this cold / infection I have so I may rest so that I'm not pushing myself trying to stay up until 4 AM to watch the Australian GP.

Last week, I've counted the number of RCP tiles last week so this course suppose to be able to make. Looks like Australia GP?

Do you have the numbers for the tile types? That would be great because I have been playing with Z-round and I could have made the track bigger, but I didn't have everything counted...

Actually it's the new F1 track in Austin, TX that will run in 2012!

The number of tiles supposed to like that.

Ok I redrew the Austin F1 track for Saturday. Not exactly what I wanted but we can tweak it in the future.

Can anyone spot the differerence in the TX from stock Other-Than the Alloy screw and washer holding the wheel on? Hint. It will help me to know the transmitter is on when far away.. I got sick of trying to see the display was on as the switch is useless from any close distance or far.

Easy mod for nominal cost.
