Arrow Mini-ZRacer.com Event: Friday 8/28/2009, Ann Arbor, MI

Join us for another Ann Arbor Mini-Z GTG on Friday August 28th, 2009. Bring your Mini-Zs, Iwavers, XMods, Micro-Ts, and Epochs, etc.

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.

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.

------------------------------------------
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.

This is the 4th race of HFAY OLPS Season 8!

We will be doing HFAY OLPS Season 8 Race #4.

Not that I can make it as I'm still in Florida , but I believe you mean Friday August 28th.

You need to update the post title and body. It's been awhile (2.4Ghz Mini-Zs? oh my ) but I don't think you've figured out time travel rc car racing yet.

BTW, I'm curious what everyone in Ann Arbor is running in terms of:
1) Transmitters and AM vs 2.4GHz (I still have my M8)
2) Batteries (I'd have to buy some new AAAs)

Also what timing system are you running?

Oops, thanks for catching that N! It's been a long week!

A lot of us are running 2.4GHz, and everyone who is is rocking a Helios (btw, if you are considering upgrading, order now as we've got a crazy Helios sale that expires 8/31 ). Plenty of people are still running 27MHz though.
Most of us are running 750s I think, either the Team Orion or R1Wurks.
We're running GiroZ, which requires a transponder.

Hurry back!

Well in one week I'll be back in AA. Maybe I'll make it to a Sept AA GTG.

That deal on the KO Propo EX-10 Helios for $250 w/ 2.4Ghz ASF module is killer. Hopefully when I get my money saved up you'll have another deal like that

I have to do some reading to figure out what I would need/want to get back in the game w/ 2.4Ghz.

I still have my:
  • Airtronics M8 w/ Mini-Z AM Module
  • MA-010 2007 HFAY race ready car
  • MR-02 2007 HFAY race ready car
  • MA-010 modified car
  • MR-01
  • and all my extra parts.

I'll probably have to sell some/all of them to fund an upgrade/conversion to 2.4Ghz. I did just sell my RCP Track so I wouldn't have to ship it back to AA (but I'm starting to regret it now).

Also what is everyone running in terms of wheelbase (98mm? 102mm?) and 2WD vs 4WD?

Man I've REALLY missed a lot in 2 years. Trying to catch up:

2.4Ghz
WTF front suspension for MR-02
Dual A-Arm front suspension for MR-02
HFAY rule changes & new motors
96mm - just like goldilocks and the 3 bears - not too short (94) and not too long (98))
Non-Nascar MR-02 in 102mm wheelbase
Porsche 962 (incl one of my all-time favorite racecars: the Rothmans Porsche 962) bodies for the 102mm wheelbase
Team Orion and R1Wurks AAAs
The Dojo moving again...and again
The Dojo switching to the GiroZ timing system

Anything else major I need to add to the list?

BTW, if you want to see my list of all-time favorite cars that I wanted made into Mini-Z bodies check out this ancient post: http://mini-zracer.com/forums/showpo...2&postcount=42

(This post brought to you from a hotel in Asheville, NC...Ann Arbor here we come)

Has anyone in Ann Arbor tried the 2.4Ghz Mini-Z module (and PN Adapter) with an M8 or M11? I read somewhere that the KO Propo Helios 2.4Ghz was way better than the the M8/M11 with the 2.4Ghz Mini-Z module (and adapter). Any thoughts?
