crash your savage through the window, with a Mini-Z in tow... they'd prolly wave your entry fee for being so badass.

Ray sold Team1 hobbies already, he is now working for Fedex I believe.

The MR-015 are old, go get a MR-03 now! They now have an optional gyro for traction control!!

Here are some pics of our last race on sunday.

Turn out was great, the races were awesome, everyone had tons of fun. I honestly haven't had so much fun in mini-z or even RC for a long long time.

The pit area was PACKED, we have got to put more tables and chairs in there!

Thanks to those who brought more track over, track was nice and big, but will be BIGGER I promise!

Also thanks to EVERYONE who helped make it more fun for everyone! That's the key to this whole racing and hobby.

Many of you guys came to drop by to check out the track. I know it might be a bit intimidating coming out the first time especially to a race, but don't worry, drop by at any of our Drop-In times and get all the practice you need!

Okay, this thread is worthless without pics! So here they are! See if you spot any old faces that has came back out to race mini-z!
