Any recent info about this? Seems very restrictive. Also not sure why other brushless motors (MZ504, MZ605 and MZ603) are listed under motor RPM rules, when the only brushless motor allowed under Motor/Gearing is the Eco Tune (MZW501). I don't have an FHSS car, so I couldn't run in "Production", but I could possibly out together a narrow and wide touring car, but I'm confused about which option parts are allowed. There is a specific list of option parts for "Production" but not for the touring classes.

The original rules from JDM market are much more clear in that they also provide graphic illustration of rules for each class with photos of applicable parts. I can only hope that K.USA is able to get a more detailed translation of the original documents that are more clear, albeit just as restrictive. Understanding the rules, however restrictive, makes it much easier to participate.

For those not familiar with Mini-Z Cup, the rules have historically been very strict. Those of us that remember the last time it was active back in 2004 are familiar with this structure. It has itís flaw, like anything else.

Sadly, no news yet on locations/dates. Canít say iím Not surprised but remain cautiously optimistic.

I'm just putting this out there as a curiosity, I'll likely never compete in this series.

Under the category 'Wide Touring' it lists MR03 VE/VE PRO, but the only radio listed is FHSS. Huh? Maybe I missed something but I thought the VE/VE PRO were ASF/MHS only. How does that work?

Looks like there might be an LM class after all. This was on K America FB page, just can't find the details...

Kyosho has their classes and rules much more organized in JDM. https://www.kyosho.com/rc/ja/race/20...cup/index.html

I donít know why itís so difficult to have the existing regulation guide translated for the NA market

Hello everyone,
It's been awhile. I haven't stopped racing Z's however. I will be at the Duel in Detroit next weekend. I too, grumbled about the rules but came to the conclusion that: 1) This is a sponsored
event 2) I, like many of us, I'm in 1:28 scale racing because of Kyosho. 3) I know what it's like to not have a place to race suddenly. Now it's flourishing here in Mid-Michigan. So, I hope to see out -of-towners come to this special event, you won't regret it. Check my Instagram page to see how Detroit hustles on the RCP.
