Race Event - Saturday 11/13/10 7pm - Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti, MI - Mini-ZRacer.com Event

Join us for another Ann Arbor Mini-Z GTG on Saturday November 13th, 2010. We primarily run Mini-Zs (2WD, AWD, and F1s) (MR-03, MR-02, MA-010, MR-01). But if you want you can bring your DNanos, Iwavers, XMods, Micro-Ts, and Epochs, etc. Some people even bring their rc helicopters and airplanes

New people are welcome as always! Everyone is friendly and helpful and we have lots of fun!

NOTE: here's the easy to remember URL to keep up to date with our events: http://www.mini-zracer.com/annarbor

Please bring $10 to cover the cost of the race night (one fee for the whole night of practice and racing - a great value!).
Reminder: You can now pay your entry fees online.

NOTE: Transponder rental is $3 for the entire night if you do not own one.

The event starts at 7pm and is in Ypsilanti, MI (just southeast of Ann Arbor). The address is:
3140 Carpenter, Ypsilanti, MI 48197

Reminder that Dojo 4 is now 3140 Carpenter - park around the back of the building and use the back door to since the storefront section is closed when we start.

------------------------------------------
Get your orders into http://Shop.TinyRC.com early and you can choose to pick it up at the GTG this Friday to save on shipping costs.

Post here to let us know what time you plan to come and what time you need to leave.
------------------------------------------

We have started our new Ann Arbor Mini-ZRacer.com season! This season will run from August to November/December. See the image below as an example of the Track Layout we will be running.

We currently have 3 Mini-Z classes (GT & LM race together in the Enduro race - click here for rules and regulations):
  • GT (Stock - including both 2WD and AWD)
  • LM (Modified/Unlimited -102mm Kyosho AutoScale)
  • F1

Qualifying will once again be based on fastest lap for the Enduro race.

I'm planning to be there. If I can get my car fixed I may even be able to compete this time.

Heya, new to the forums. I may swing by for this, can I just watch and hang around for free or will I have to pay to get in?

Heard about the community here from seanp2k, I've been wanting to get into some sort of RC racing for a long time, preferably on-road. I messed around with X-mods back when they first came out, so I've been aware of Mini-Z's for quite some time.

I don't currently have a car, but I'd like to pick one up before too long and get involved. It's nice to live somewhere where people actually do stuff for a change :P

Deca,

Welcome to the forums and group! I'm going to have an extra car at the track tomorrow for testing purposes so I could let you play around with my car while I'm driving the second one around.

If you're one of Sean's friends I might know you too =P

Deca, you can both watch and practice for free! Everyone is really friendly and lots of us have extra cars which you can try and we even have a couple of shop loaners. You're lucky to find yourself in the Mini-Z capital of the world outside of Japan! Don't forget to use the back door - look for a black convertible w/ license plate TINY RC and you'll know you're getting close! Looking forward to meeting you!

Thanks for such a warm welcome! I'm never sure what to expect getting involved in a new community. Really looking forward to swinging by tonight and meeting you guys

Edit: I don't suppose anyone messes around with Q-Steers out there?
