RVA Mini Z Racers News - 01/07/2019 (Richmond, VA)

RVA Mini Z Racers News | 01/07/2019

Happy Holidays and New Year!

* Wow it's been a busy final few weeks of 2018 and also first week of 2019! We are starting up our first official races at this track this month with the first race being January 25th. Classes have been fleshed out for said races, some rules have been updated, and we had a massive turn out for the Sunday prior to Christmas! More on all this below.

Official Races Beginning

* Our first official race of 2019 is going to be January 25th beginning at 4pm and ending at 8pm. This will be an event where we mostly attempt to figure out how we will make it all work as it's envisioned, so future races will run smooth.

$10 entry fee. Two classes to race (Modified and Stock), and all of the entry fee money will be paid out to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in both the stock and modified class with a Hobbytown Gift Card. 1st place will get 50%, 2nd place will get 35% and 3rd place will get 15%.

Updated Rules

* The major update to the rules is that now tire compound "Sticky Fingers Oderless Tire Conditioner" can be used on the track.
Defined Competition Classes

* Classes are now more defined.

Modified now has much more freedom as to what can be used, only restriction would be that the car use a brushed motor AND be a MR-03 RWD chassis only during competition and/or during time attack contest.
01/19/2019 Rule Update: There is now no restriction on brushed motor turn, caveat being you must be able to drive the vehicle without being uncontrollable.

Box Stock is now restricted to 98mm MR-03 stock MINI-Zs only. The LM Mercedes cannot be run in this class. After numerous tests on our track, the LM Mercedes out of box out performs every other stock 98mm Mini Z, with the LM Mercedes sometimes hitting Modified lap times. This rule would also apply to the Time Attack Contest.

Box Stock is able to use aluminum lug nuts and Kyosho and/or any other brand tire (ie - PN, Marka, etc).
Time Attack Contest Rules Updated

* Starting this month HobbyTown Richmond, VA will be hosting monthly Mini Z Time Attack contests. Whichever driver runs the fastest lap around the track in both stock or modified class will score a $10 HobbyTown gift card. HobbyTown will update the Time Attack board throughout the month so participants can track who is at the top. Box Stock class rules will apply to this contest.
YouTube Channel

* I personally started a personal project website (Mini Z Track Directory via and by extension created a YouTube channel associated with the project. It will predominately show footage from the track but will probably branch out to other tracks and/or mini scale events also.
