Looking for Mini-Z racers!
« on: August 24, 2016, 09:22:32 AM »
Hello all,

I am looking to see if there is any existing Mini-Z club in Ottawa? I have seen a couple of posts but nothing as of late.
I am interested in racing a couple of times a week and on weekends.
Currently, I practice on a mini 96 with the extension kit. (Can't figure out how to load a pic of it!)
I have some older cars but would like to get back into the hobby if there are enough racers out there!
Would be willing to combine tracks in order to create a bigger, better racing experience!
If there is already a community of racers for this class please let me know with links!
Thanks to all interested

I always wanted a mini Z.

At one point I had 3 micro desert truck (losi) and we had a blast in the basement with my kids.

Anyway, I'm curious to see the result of your post.

There are a few people with Mini Z and there is a track that they race at in one of their basements.  it has been kept pretty low key.  If I knew more and could get in on the racing I would get one.

Hi Ben,
Yes, I do have a RCP Mini 96 with extension set up but I don't have a lap timer.
I was thinking about renting out some gym space if there was enough interest (20 people) but that might be a tough as there have not been too many responses about Mini-Z racers!
I'm hoping that after the weekend, a couple more people will have chimed in!

What I was really hoping for was enough interest to start a small club and join an online racing league. It would require more track but I want to figure out if there is enough interest before spending money on more track or a new timing system. The 18 track layouts to choose from are on RCP's website: http://www.rcptracks.com/rcptracklayouts.html
There's also a Mini-Z group out of Toronto MC3 http://www.minicarclubofcanada.com/ looking to maybe createsomething similar here in Ottawa?

Any thoughts, jump into the conversation!

Hi All,

Hi All,

Looking to see if there is anyone selling Kyosho Mini Z or Losi products and RCP Tracks? (1:24 Scale)

I am in the market for a lap counter as well.

Going to try and start a small racing club for 1:24 scale racing. (Anyone interested in getting involved, please feel free to contact me!)

PS. CrazyBen, let me know if your crew has started up again as I would be very interested!

Thanks

Patrick
