View Full Version : Chicago Mini-Z R/C Race @ Berkeley - Sunday Dec. 2nd 1-4pm

2012.11.30, 04:37 PM
Where are starting a new Spec class. The "EX Stock Class" is Mr-02 only chassis with the stock Kyosho motor. The only upgrades allowed are an Oil center shock and Ball Bearings. This will allow us all to run more equally matched races. Races will continue as normal with prize entries for placement in "stock" and "70t" class while we race at the same time. We will ALSO have a separate qualifier main race where the cars will NOT run together and only the "EX Stock" spec cars will race. Owners of Mini-z cars that don't fit this class can use a club car.

Come join local Mini-z racers at our next race event! We also have a fleet of Mini-z vehicles you can use if you don't own your own. We love new people to try out racing, the competition is fun but not fierce. The membership dues for this event are $10.

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.
