Arch,

You're right. 10deg/20deg is a common setup with our drivers here but a couple are shifting down one to 8deg/10deg. They happen to be the faster drivers but I can't say that the softer tires are the reason why they are winning.

IMPORTANT: We will be running the track with the rough side UP. We have in the past run smooth side up when we changed the layout in our winter series to mess with everyone (challange them) . We figured that the rough side UP is design intent and most common so that is what we are running.

No problem. Lets keep our fingers crossed that someone will step up and provide dinners for everyone. At the very least The Green Turtle has promised some wings to pick at.

Just recieved another F1 registration today so I think we are sitting at 4 now. So if others are in the mail then I think we will be racing F1s for sure!!

I'll post a run down of entries at the end of this week.


Thanks!

COOL. We'll be keeping a look out for your registration. Thanx.

BTW: I just received a question on rctech from a guy trying to find a hobby store in Maryland that carrys MiniZ. I am fairly familiar with the local hobby stores and the only one that comes to mind is CWhitts. I vaguely recall Mimi's carrying some stuff but I think CWhitts has the best in-stock selection of kits and parts.

Anyone know of anyone else?

Thanks,
NCRC

Quick tally as of today:

MiniZ Stock 12
MiniZ Mod 4
MiniZ AWD 3
Xmod Stock 6
1/18th 7
MiniZ F1 4

I'm going to be out of the office for a couple of days and may not have email/internet access until Friday. If we get a influx by then I will post updates.

T-shirts have shipped and I will post a pic on Friday.

Bojar,
Thanks for making the effort to collect more F1. You will have at least one heat of not two.

With pre-reg now closed here are the latest tallys…

MiniZ Stock – 12
MiniZ Mod – 5 ( a couple more planned race day)
MiniZ AWD Mod – 3 (we said we would race it and we will)
MiniZ F1 – 5
Xmod Stock – 7
1/18th Stock – 9 (with another 3-4 estimated race day)

So we are planning on 9-10 heats. 60min per round (if running smoothly) means we would be starting the Mains around 3pm, giving the guys driving in a reasonable drive back home. Unless tons more show up race day I think we will be in good shape. Not too big of a race for our first go around.

Test run went well. No problems with 1/18th scale cars and I would wager that the MiniZ Mods will have faster laps than the 5cell M18s. I ran a 1/18th around the track and we decided to open it up to 3 tiles wide for most of the track. I’ll post a picture tomorrow on all the blogs.

Thanks to everyone for participating and we are looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Don’t forget that extra raffle tickets will be available for the premium items at $5 each or 5 for $20.

Food is looking positive. I’ll confirm as soon as we know.

Russ

Hello everyone!

A question about the 1/18th scale came across RCTech and I wanted to post it here just in case some of you are running 1/18th scale next Saturday.

The HobbyZone Mini Mauler 180 motor is legal.
