Exclamation Take the 50' Dash Challenge!

50 feet is approximately a quarter mile in Mini-Z scale; how fast can your Mini-Z do it? Post your times here!

Woohoo

Well me and the two other guys I race with measured out the scale 1/4mile and used a light tree to start with. I ran a 3.36 w/ my WRX and xspeed motor, and 9 tooth gear. The other two stock ones ran 3.60's average.

OK, finally did the drag runs F-MA pulled a best time of 3.6 seconds for 50'. My best was 2.9 seconds flat. I have a witness to back me up too..hehe...

The 2.9 was with the 10T pinion, with a 9T I got 2.96 seconds as a best time, my 8T seems to be getting chewed up so I skipped it, and with a 7T I ran a 3.7s. I had on a 41T spur gear w/ X-Speed motor too.

F=MA ran his GPM torque motor with a 42T spur & 12T pinion.

I tried timing it my self yesterday, and this is not accurate, because I did not mark the start to finish. I do know that it was beyond 70 feet. I got from my imaginary start to the finish line in approximately 2 seconds. I wasn't gunning it either, for if I did, the car would have spun out.

I ran a 2.80 with a PN S01 and a V2 turbo, using a 7 tooth. Ill try a 9. It seems that these things top out fast, and that its more of a top speed run rather than a off the line run.

50ft run

I ran a 4.56 on the run and my car is completely stock and 8t gear. I ran it on a bumpy concrete road in my subdivision.
