For team races..........I would rather ONLY drive my own cars.....

RALLY? That would Excellent!!!!

Drifting? I just need to fix my X-Mod Evo (found it in a box in my basement so now I dont have to buy an AWD mini-z!) Sorry Dave

I like that there is alot of thought into these races and that will keep up interest in running these tiny cars!

See you guys at the very next event....

I want to check out the off road stuff... I saw some pictures of some off road truck rally stuff and it looks pretty rad. (Yeah... another Mini-Z vehicle to get) Offroad Pics

For the timing with gymkhana, it's not abnormal to have the track go outward, and then end by coming back through the start line in the opposite direction.

Here's an example: Gymkhana Course

I am totally excited

So yeah please post availability and interest if you're reading this
FYI I can pretty much never do week nights (other than late Friday) so it's most likely going to have to be a Fri/Sat that isn't already dedicated to another Dojo event.

S, you do understand what "Team" means, right?! No need to apologize RE XMOD - I could use a good laugh!

FYI the track that we have is the "original" off-road stuff, not the new "Losi" tracks. Though we can of course do some shopping if things take off...

D.......NICE!............I may even convert the XMod to Kyosho Spare AM gear....Take that! I know what team kinda means..exept I do not do Teams very well..more of a solo act if you know what I mean.....That way there is no hard feeling if something breaks on someones car......Especially Mine.

See you there boss

Here is a Rally Idea! How about a tarmac and Snow event on the same track!? How do you ask? You simply set up a long stage and run the AWD cars with sticky rubber tires in both direction....THEN......wait for it........
you switch the tires to Drifter Tires and then you instantly have a snow/ice course! Think...One track layout.....4 stages! Tarmac one way and then back the other way....Then snow out 1 way and back the other way!
I think that could be fun to run both setups on one track layout....

That would actually work quite well. Much better than going outside and getting snow and just sort of caking it onto the RCP

Good idea, it'd save a lot of setup time. I would still like to try multiple unique stages at some point though.

Glad you like. Good point about differently layouts as well. That way each time we change the circuit we get 4 unique stages...if you count 2 different directions for tarmac and snow/ice.

I may have to get a Mini-Z AWD from DAVE if this becomes a reality...Hear that Dave?. That White Subaru is calling my name for a Rally themed night!!!
I may have to retire my X-Mod Evo You better get some Bearing Kits in for the AWD!!!!

OK I've been messing with this Z Round track maker and here is my first attempt!


Fuji Speedway 1980



This is much more difficult than I expected it to be, these tiles don't like to cooperate!! I had too balance making it look like the track with making it (I hope) drive like the real track. I tried to allow for lines and relative speeds similar to what you would get on the different corners in real life. Also hoping that we have the tiles necessary, I couldn't get a definite list of the dojos tile stock.

If you have any suggestions or ideas please let me know! If anyone else wants to try putting together their own Fuji I'd be interested to see it
