I wish we could get you guys to do Can-Am instead of LM....but oh well. I'm in for 2...GT2 and F1.

2012.09.07, 06:33 PM
Dang only 2 weeks notice? I try and see if I can get off work. If I can I will be running all 3

kwsmith29
2012.09.07, 08:01 PM
Sorry Chad. We did the 22nd, it was my understanding the majority of the beach guys would be available for that date. The majority of our guys found out dates last night. Hope it all works out..

Come on Landon. I know you have an LM body laying around.

Wade

2012.09.07, 08:07 PM
wheres your old box stock car run that

mleemor60
2012.09.08, 07:19 AM
I will provide you with a car to run. I'll even supply the cheese.

hrdrvr
2012.09.08, 11:36 AM
Come on Landon. I know you have an LM body laying around.

I do have an LM body, but no extra chassis, and no motor mount that is good at 102. i rarely run any longer than 96, so i got rid of all my old LCG pods.


wheres your old box stock car run that

I sold that box stock car to Grason when he burnt up one of his cars a while back. I only have two cars now. My 70t GT, and my mod car. In theory I could tear down my mod car, and make something work, but it's hard for me to justify tearing down the best car at our track that I run every single week.


I will provide you with a car to run. I'll even supply the cheese.

I think I will pass. I've seen your cars going around the track, lol. Just kidding....but in all seriousness, I don't want to be learning how to drive one of your cars when I can be focusing on getting my two cars good enough to get the points I need. At the last cup race I was barely lucky enough to have two cars to run by the third qualifier, and those were ones that were dialed when I left here. BTW, I'm full of cheese :D

mleemor60
2012.09.08, 12:08 PM
No dialing in needed. Arrive and drive. Or. Is that clucking I hear in the background?

hatley
2012.09.08, 02:40 PM
Man r we children or adults :eek:

hatley
2012.09.08, 02:52 PM
Bottom line by not running what we no everyone has in classes is effecting the mini z racers as a group event and also hsh losing out on profit for that class . Were is the unity :D

kwsmith29
2012.09.08, 03:54 PM
It's not a matter of unity. Just giving Landon a hard time.

Remember I'll need help next week changing the layout if anyone is available.

Clucking....if that's clucking you hear I guess the it's in the fore ground, lol. :p



for someone like you landon whos into mini-zs they way you are you would think that you would have a car for every class its hard for me to think that you only have two cars(classes of cars)

Albert, I used to have a car for every class, and a couple of extras just in case something went wrong or I wanted to try something different. That was back in the day of $100 cars, $25 diffs, and DDS suspensions. In the new day of expensive cars, diffs, tri-shocks, and a front suspension I actually have to put money into (generally ran stock knuckles and springs on the 02s), I can't afford to have 4-8 cars all set up the way I want to. Also, i have found that the hobby is much easier and enjoyable for me to only have to have 2 cars handling well. Since limiting myself to only running 2 classes at out of town races, I have finished every single class I have run on the podium. I get more free time to get those cars right, and I've even had some time to help ole Daddy Rabbit out here and there. With F1 being one of the classes at this race, I would consider running a third (since I don't work on my F1), but not when it will be a car and class I never run. I haven't run an LM body since running box stock at y'all race at the beginning of this year.



Man r we children or adults :eek:

We might be considered adults....but aren't we just getting together to play with toys? I guess we can just expect mature childish behavior, lol.



It's not a matter of unity. Just giving Landon a hard time.

Remember I'll need help next week changing the layout if anyone is available.

Wade

Giving Landon a hard time is not allowed. Y'all are all in violation of Cup code #112. I will be deducting 150 points from Rodney's season total.

Changing the layout? Sounds good to me. Is it going to be fast and flowy?

kwsmith29
2012.09.08, 06:59 PM
It will be a Wade layout......SLOW and Technical.......

BJH44
2012.09.09, 04:06 PM
Im with landon on running can-am instead of Lemans. I would run all 3 classes tht way, but don't have a car set up for Lemans. So ill just stick with running GT and F1.

kwsmith29
2012.09.16, 09:35 AM
Anybody else from the MBMZR or LET"S go Racing group going to make it?

Sorry to BJH44, I don't know your name for the drivers list. :D

Chad are you in for sure?

Thanks,

just plan to run with everyone else. you need to get use to running in the pack anyways. everyone will get sorted into the heats they should be in by the end anyways. dont be scared that you will be in the way its all part of racing, the better drivers should be able to get around.

kwsmith29
2012.09.20, 10:46 AM
Alright guys keep in mind we need a minimum of 5 drivers to make a class and the premise of the Sportsman class is a safe haven for new inexperienced drivers. I don't want to have an experienced racer drop down and where out the newbees.

i wouldn't say i'm experienced, i'm more of a newbie than anything. but i have no issues racing w/ the experienced, and if i can't race on teh sportsman as well, i'm ok w/ that, i understand the basis of the sportsman class and respect that. i'd run what i can w/ the car i have and just leave it at that..

just a double check..i can run the LMP2 w/ a McL body, correct?

mleemor60
2012.09.20, 11:55 AM
No. But don't worry. We will fix you up.

chad508
2012.09.20, 11:58 AM
that would be a negative on the McL. only the mazda 787, porshe 962, sauber c9 and nissan 390.

2012.09.20, 01:03 PM
fair enough :D

Hey guys, had a great time racing with you all.:D
Thanks to all the people that put things together for us.:)
My opion, and it is just that, an opion. i think we need to do away with the old hand out motors, they have done their job, let um go. Just sayin.;)

2012.09.27, 10:47 PM
i too had a good time with some good finishes. i really wanted that 1st place gt but obviously not bad enough.
as far as motors i say we just make all the classes mod. no calling anyone out then. just run as fast as you want :)

2012.09.28, 03:40 PM
I had an awesome time! It was one of my favorite Wade layouts ever, the racing was close, and I performed pretty well :D I will not say that Rodney won;t win when he comes down here, but he is going to have to fight harder for wins at the last race!! Chad and I are going to be on our game for the next round!!

I also posted the current points standings.
http://mini-zracer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=38392

Chad, Wade, Josh and I all have a legit shot at second, while Rodney has an almost perfect score so far.


i think we need to do away with the old hand out motors, they have done their job, let um go. Just sayin.;)

I have some ideas that may end up being better than the current set up. I just need to figure out who to talk to to get some feedback on the direction for next year :D

You guys do that already, lol. There are a lot more options than just the honor system.


as far as motors i say we just make all the classes mod. no calling anyone out then. just run as fast as you want :)

While I like the idea of just running mod, I love the close racing we get with the controlled motors. Maybe going to one 70t class and two mod classes would relieve some of the pressure on the motors, and some of the shady allegations :D

hrdrvr
2012.09.28, 06:24 PM
and Landon so do you

At least you assume I do. I can not tell you the last time I thought some one was cheating. It's been even longer since I actually accused any one of such. It was before you were even racing with us, I know.....

I like writing the rules where everything is legal. That way there isn't a such thing as cheating. I wish we could do that with the cup rules, and every other event for that matter.

kwsmith29
2012.09.28, 11:26 PM
I can tell you right now if all the animosity and griping doesn't go away the series and racing Mini Z's in general is doomed.

Hand out motors are a great way to control things so everything seems fair and for the most part hand out motors are great. If you run a new motor every race. In here lies the quandary. Motors are abused, wore out or don't get proper maintenance(this is not a slam on anybody, Please don't take that way). Having new hand out motors or having someone go through each motor every race is not cost efficient for this series.

There are three other ways to skin this cat.....

First of all; all mod classes. On this point I do agree with Landon, I love the close fields the 70 turn motors create. Some of the closest tightset fields I've ever seen. Mod motors would kill close racing, and I don't mean close racing between 2 or 3 racers. I mean close racing between an entire field of drivers and cars.

Second option; Put a claim rule on the motors. A claim that is the cost of the motor $10. Put rules in place that would allow a motor to be blueprinted(truing the com, advancing timing, and the replacement of brushes) with stock 70turn parts only, allow brushes to be upgrade to silver brush installs in the stock location and stock alinement. When a motor is claimed the owner is allowed to run the rest of the event or surrender motor at time of claim. Once motor is surrendered the motor is disassembled and checked. If illegal, claim money is given back to person that claimed the motor and the cheater is disqualified. If legal the racer claiming motor gets the diassambled motor. To claim the motor you must be running in the event and running in that class.

Or the third option; Same type of motor rules as option two, but at the end of the event all drivers in the A-main will pull motors after the race and two tech inspectors(one from each group competing) will disassemble and check motors for rule violations. If a motor is found illegal driver will be disqualified and forfeit the position and points.

We would need to sit down as a group or select representatives from each group and determine a simple, yet complete and clear set on rules for the motors.

Just my two cents,
Wade

chad508
2012.09.29, 12:24 AM
the only problem i see with allowing blueprinting, advancing timing, trueing comm and all that other stuff is i dont want to have to do it. if i have to do anything to a motor other than spray some motor cleaner in it to be competative i will just run mod classes only. im fine with the motors we have now. i say at the start of a season everyone buys 1 motor that pn sells for the regionals. at the end of the race the motor goes into a bag for the next race. at next race you pull a motor if its a dud you get one alternate pull. at end of season motors can be sold to whom ever wants them for a set price to be determined. i feel sending the motors all the way to Australia is a little on the crazy side, they cost $10 and they produce no revenue for the series. we will always have faster motors and slower ones its just luck of the draw.

Daddy Rabbit
2012.09.29, 08:18 AM
Hey guys, I did not mean to open a keg of worms here. I just think these handouts have done their job. Sell them at the end of the next race and get new for next year.

Daddy Rabbit
2012.09.29, 12:11 PM
I think Chad may getting close to hitting on something here. Both HSH and LET's will have to order and invest in these motors at the beginning of every season and then recoup their investment fairly. The track that has the first race will have the biggest investment, so something would have to be worked out there.
Wade......I agree with you about the animosity, the drama and the BS. Also everyone taking a simple statement that someone makes and taking it personally and with the wrong meaning. We are all grown men here, all this crap needs to stop, so that we can enjoy racing even more.

Just my two cents,
Wade

That was more like 4 cents Wade, lol I guess that means I'm going to give you back .08 ;d

I totally agree with you on reduced animosity. I am sorry if I started that by replying with a joke to Albert. I thought the "lol" I put behind it made it known that it was a joke. I know just typing makes it hard to read humor, but I thought you guys knew me good enough to know my tone on that statement.

Just to clarify in all seriousness, I have not heard any one from our group accuse any one from HS in AT LEAST two years of any type of foul play. The last time I remember anything at all was the second Diablo (3 or 4 years, right?) where I had a problem with y'alls motors. It came around that y'all were doing things that I wasn't, but once I had a grasp on your rules, it wasn't a matter of cheating at all. The fact was, I didn't know y'alls whole rules package, and I wasn't taking full advantage of the way the rules were written. Shortly after that y'all came up with some very detailed written rules, and it has been clear ever since then. We also came up with the joint Carolina Cup rules (Pedro, Mike, and I worked on these tirelessly for months and months), which I think cover pretty much everything in very good detail. I mean, here we are three years later, and the rules have rarely been challenged by any innovations. All of these posted rules have stifled any sort of cheating, and any sort of accusations about cheating between our groups. I think over all, that has brought us closer together, and I hope we can continue down the positive path.

I hope that clears up my stance on cheating from group to group. Also, I think I can confidently say that every one from our group feels the same way...there is no foul play, and definitely no good reason to complain about the possibility of it.


Option 1: We need some controlled motors for closeness. It doesn't have to be a majority of the classes, but it needs to happen. I've seen our groups have 10 people (with the addition of some other travelers) qualify on the same lap with the cup motors, and I would hate to see us chose a path that would lead us away from having that chance again.

Option 2 and 3; I have to say, I am with Chad on this. I'm not going to put work into a $10 motor, when I just just buy a different $10 motor and go faster. I would not be opposed to trying to run in this class, but if I felt I was at a significant disadvantage because others were working their motors more, I wouldn't continue to run it.



the only problem i see with allowing blueprinting, advancing timing, trueing comm and all that other stuff is i dont want to have to do it. if i have to do anything to a motor other than spray some motor cleaner in it to be competative i will just run mod classes only. im fine with the motors we have now. i say at the start of a season everyone buys 1 motor that pn sells for the regionals. at the end of the race the motor goes into a bag for the next race. at next race you pull a motor if its a dud you get one alternate pull. at end of season motors can be sold to whom ever wants them for a set price to be determined. i feel sending the motors all the way to Australia is a little on the crazy side, they cost $10 and they produce no revenue for the series. we will always have faster motors and slower ones its just luck of the draw.

We aren't sending the motors to AUS any more, but there is still a lot of time, and a little cost in maintaining them. I like the idea of actual hand-out motors (kept by the racer at the end of each event) more than the whole, "Ill buy one and throw it in" deal, but maybe that's just me.



Hey guys, I did not mean to open a keg of worms here. I just think these handouts have done their job. Sell them at the end of the next race and get new for next year.

It's a keg of worms that needs to be discussed. I just hope we can discuss it, and not argue about it. We are mature enough to do that.

I know we could sell some of the current motors off pretty easily, but who is going to foot the rest of the bill to buy the new ones? Cost is something we really need to take into consideration. Profitability is a big part of event planning and hosting for the two shops involved, and that needs to be at the fore front of any discussion about spending money for the series.

Hopefully not too many posts were made while I was typing this. It took me a while :cool:
