Chicago Mini-Z R/C Race - Sunday Nov. 14th - We provide the cars or bring your own

You read the title correct. Our Club provides the Mini-z vehicles! Read the article on Big Squid RC for a feature on one of our recent events.

No need to prep your vehicles and bring all your equipment. We have a fleet of Mini-z vehicles that are part of the membership dues. The membership dues for this event are $10.

We Provide
  • Kyosho Mini-Z vehicles—Over 30 in the fleet! Hobby grade cars that run like the big guys but with a true scale appearance.
  • Climate controlled venue
  • All batteries charged and ready to go
  • Dedicated RCP Tracks specifically designed for R/C car racing
  • Computer controlled timing equipment using I-lap
  • Venue with publicly accessible washrooms
  • Handicap accessible
  • Had a breakdown? hand in your car for another one!

Check out details at the website. In Berkeley, IL, one town east of Elmhurst right on the DuPage and Cook county border.

The venue IS accessible from Chicago via Public Transportation and a 12 min walk. So those of you from the city that can't normally race R/C due to a lack of real car, you can take the Metra out.

Google map of the Metra line

And the street view that shows the building on the right and the spot in the fence that has an access way. If you put in 1200 lind ave it takes you around but there is opening in the fence if you are walking.

We expanded the Nov. HFAY layout for the later half of our meeting. Basically joined it to our large oval that was next to the track.

I was having a good day with my start reflexes. Our member David took a video of one race. This isn't the whole race. Craig and I are in our own "class" as we run the pn70t. The rookies race the stock Kyosho motor.

I must say when watching the video, all I see are mistakes
