Thumbs up 2018 Mini-Z GTG Season

Hey guys! Once again I have created a new thread for the 2018 Season & Closed the 2017 thread. In the next month or so I will merge it into the *ARCHIVED* Mini-Z GTG Previous Seasons (Chat & Announcements) thread

As per normal, this thread will be for both General Chit Chat & our GTG Announcements.

Be sure to subscribe to this thread so you get a notification when there is an update! To do so, click on "Thread Tools" above, and choose "Subscribe to this Thread".

I would like to officially welcome the Outlaw RC gang to our club. I am hoping that along side of their club that we can once again grow Mini-Z into a flourishing hobby!

In the next few months we will be putting together more "Structured Races".
We will keeping to our traditional "Run What Ya Brung" open lap runs with some fun races thrown in here & there like we have typically done. We will be sure to send out specific GTG notifications about these runs in advance that way, those that do not wish to participate in the more structured races, can skip them. Rules/Regulations/Specs will all be worked out over the first few "Structured Race" GTG's. Currently, we will be running the "Structured Race" GTG's at the Cloverdale Show Barn which we have access to until April. Be sure to go drop in at the full time track most any evenings! It typically opens around 3-5pm M-F & stays open pretty late. Weekends it tends to open earlier, around 12pm & also stays open pretty late. Be sure to go see the Outlaw RC social Media pages for more information.

Outlaw RC Mini-Z track rates:
Drop-in: $10 (Free if you paid to run on the 1:8 carpet track)
GTG/Race: $15

Together we will make this year the best year ever!

Hope to see y'all out at the track!

P.S.: We are still looking for other members to help run more GTG's at the Outlaw RC track, please contact me if you are interested.

Just a heads up.
The track will not be setup in the Cloverdale barn again until Tues. Jan 30th due to a large weekend long event that they are hosting.

Upcoming Outlaw RC Saturday & Sunday GTG days

Starting Sun., Feb. 18th Marty will @ the track every two weeks from 11am till 4 pm. He will be setting up the timing system so feel free to join him & others out at the track to get some laps in.

Outlaw will also be hosting their non-points races on these dates, so some of them may also be joining us.

I want to know from you all, are you liking having the track setup full time in Cloverdale? Are you using it? Do the Saturday GTG's work for you as attendance on those dates seems lower, or do the Sundays work better for you all?

I plan on keeping a few Saturday dates in our upcoming schedule just to make sure we have the most coverage of racers that we can.

Next GTG on the 18th will be 11-4 or more if anyone else is willing to go setup/teardown the timing system. Also, the earlier we show up, the more room we can make use of. Come March, I will be attending as many of the Saturday & Sunday dates as my marriage will allow. =)
It doesn't help that I now have a 1:10th scale buggy that I'm running on the off-road track.

Here are some upcoming dates:
Sun., Feb. 18
Sat., Feb. 24
Sun., Mar. 4
Sat., Mar. 10
Sun., Mar. 18
Sat. Mar. 24 is the Outlaw Final race with trophy presentation, I will verify if they feel they will have a big turn out we may have to cancel this date.
Sun., Mar. 24 If the above date is cancelled

Barn closes Mar. 31 so be sure to get out & make use of it as much as you can!

I can't comment on any visits as such (f-ing work) but I've been wondering if grip levels have suffered due to placing the RCP down on bare cold concrete flooring?

Does anyone have any relevant commentary on how tire grip is in the Barn RCP?

It is definitely slipperier than we are used to and the low track temperatures are the most likely reason, but dust could be part of it too. My cars run dusty on that track. Once there are 2-3 cars out on the track and the heaters over the track are running the grip levels come up though.

I have not been able to get a mod 2WD car to hook up particularly well. AWD cars really shine on the barn track. Pro-stock 2WD cars are also fine (Eco VE/50T)

I honestly haven't noticed much of a difference. I achieved some fast laps first thing @ 8 or 9am. If I think back, yes, maybe for the first part of the day things are a bit slicker, but I honestly don't think that it's an issue after the heat has been turned on & after about half an hour. The heaters are in the roof & blow down & I get rather hot when they are on so they work pretty quickly.

Just my two cents.

Marty has messaged me saying he will actually be at the barn for 10am this upcoming Sunday. I have an out of town friend over this weekend so I will not be in attendance.

BC Mini-Z GTG in Cloverdale. Sat., Feb. 24th!


BC Mini-Z Club GTG @ Outlaw RC

Sat., Feb. 24th & Sun., Mar. 4th!

Outlaw RC is continuing to hold their bi-weekly indoor offroad points & non-points race series so I'd like to put on a GTG for both dates to include as many of them as I can again.

We would like to get all able bodies to come out. Attendance for Saturdays is getting better as more & more of their members are starting to join us.


The GTG will be held at the Cloverdale Fairgrounds in the Show Barn which is right behind the large red Agriplex.

176th & 62 Ave. Cloverdale

>>Google Map<<







Be sure to bring a Table, Chair, Extension Cord/Power Bar

For Sat., Feb. 24th: I will be on-site for 7am to setup & get things finalized. The barn is open until rather late but I may not be able to stay this time much passed 6.
For Sun., Mar. 4th: Marty will be on-site for 10am-5pm

The fee for this GTG is:
$15
-$5 if you help Setup or Teardown. (Max. $5 back)
*PLEASE TRY TO BRING CORRECT CHANGE!*

Due to scheduling conflicts it looks like we will have to pack up & move the track out of the barn on Saturday evening so there will be no GTG on Sunday.

I will be at the track around 7am tomorrow. You can come run from 7am till around 4 or so when I start pulling it apart. Come run & help break down if you want!

Next GTG will most likely be in Newton @ Dave's. I'll post up a date once I have more info!
