I plan to have tires and some misc. parts available at the track.

Gary is planning to offer lunch for $5 a person. It will be chicken, green beans, rice and soda.
I was going to charge $20 per person for the races. This will cover the cost of the trophy's.

Hey Mike and Gary looking forward to coming down for this race. From what I hear with a lot of racers coming to this event. You can't put any price on how much fun we are going to have. Looking for some good food. Racing hard with good friends and make a new ones. Just like old times. Good to see mini z racing coming back.

It is shaping up nicely. Now if we can just get some hotel information, especially over towards Andrew's everything would be hunky dory.

Mike Keely 2018.02.25 08:34 AM

We are looking forward to seeing everyone again. I am sure it will be a good time for everyone. If you guys could give me a count of the guys that are coming from your area that would help. I will work on hotel info today.

mleemor60 2018.02.25 08:42 AM

Three to five from here.

Im really looking forward to the opportunity to get back on the track with you guys. It looks like there will be a nice turnout.

I have ordered an LM and MM2 conversion set to see which body would be best for Kyosho Stock. My old Box Stock car from Cruizin is still alive, but the motor mount is broken. After watching some of the videos that were posted from yesterdays race, the track looks large enough that LM would be a good choice. It seems to carry corner speed well into the corner. I went into storage and pulled out a virgin Renown 787B body, but dont have the wheels (found some Nascar wheels which would fit the fronts). All of my other LM bodies have too many mods to be considered for stock.

For 90mm, I dug up my ATM 90mm mount with damper that I had test fit on an F1 conversion. I havent decided on body or motor yet. F40, F355, 911 GT1 or GT3.

Modified I am planning on just using a simple 98mm AAA MR03. Being away from racing for so long, I dont want to really try the new tech yet. I am not a fan of 2S LiPo, so not really planning to go that route.

Mike Keely 2018.02.25 06:07 PM

I am wanting to see how my MR03 does against the 2S cars. I have a 32 turn motor in it and it moves pretty well.

arch2b 2018.02.25 07:37 PM

I'm running my standard lineup, same for the last year or two now. 98mm MM2 configured MR-03 599XX for stock and R8 50T PN 2.5AAA chassis for mod. It's about as fast as i'm comfortable with right now. Undecided for 90mm, either the GT3 RS or MX5 (5000kv PN2.5AAA). Certainly not the popular choices with the 911 GT1 being the most popular. Many are running LM for stock. LM or something with MM2. Kris put on a clinic of whoop ass with a 50T RM MX5 stock chassis just recently so it's not all car to rule the day;)
