Hi all, completely new here!! I've run/ have 1/8, 1/10 RC Cars but have been introduced to the 1/28 just recently. Needless to say I just got my 1st two Kyosho 1/28's and am in love and excited to get the rubber on the mat. I've just learned through the forum that races are held at hobby works in Faifax!! Are their other groups? Races? I look forward to getting out and meeting you all!!!

GearHead, what area are you located in?

greatest tip i can offer to anyone new to mini-z is not to get sucked into all the bits and bobs. a stock car with bearings, right tires for the track and skill level and minimal tweaking can do quite well for someone just getting into the scale. make incremental changes when your ready. :cool:
