A pin ball likely has less bounces per game than my car did in that race on that track... I could not find the propper tire set up, only had time to try 4 or 5 combos though... at least I dont have to worry about the gold stripes making my body ugly, cuz the gold stripes are now the better looking part of the body . I did better going around the slot car track, even around that bank...

Very disappointed to say that somehow my car suffered a massive powertrain failure between practice on Thursday and the Race on Saturday, and was only able to reach approximately 1/3 of its previous top speed. The braking, however, allowed me to make up what I lost in the straights in the technical section and finish 4th overall, which was the top '01 position (podium was all MR-02s!). Other interesting tidbits: the MZR foams made it through an entire hour of racing with little wear! The GPM battery and motor sinks did a great job of keeping things cool through the extended run.
After the race, we demo'd the F1 with Z-130-S-BB and experimental 2x4 to the amazement of all!

Mini-Z and Drac

Just wanted to thank both of you for driving all the way down and racing with us. I was pleased that everything went smoothly ( except the power glitch in your car, Mini-z ) This was our first endurance style race but, after how this went, I am sure not our last.

Neither of you had much chance for practice on our track yet you did well. I hope you both enjoyed the race. I know I did.

It was a pleasure to meet both of you and I hope we can get together again sometime and race our Z's. Maybe next time we will drive up to the "state up north" as they say here in the home of the O.S.U. Buckeyes.

here is that video, it needs a better web home, cuz this url is gona die eventualy... and 3mb is a big big for a 30 second film... so if any one wants to condense it feel free too .


http://mywebpages.comcast.net/dracon...o/TT-Track.avi

It currently requires QUICKTIME to play it, at least on my PC, even though its a .avi file... so if it opens in media player, open quick time and load it to view it... unless u get lucky and it works .
