PostSubject: Tamiya Minis - Great Racing, Try One Today!   October 31st 2007, 2:57 am

My quest to have a Tamiya mini class at CCXRC continues.

I've been traveling a lot for work lately, so I've had a lot of time to do whatever I want drunken Basketball study Twisted Evil .

Being the RC and internet geek that I am, I've been working on putting together my own RC website during my many free evenings in a hotel room in New Jersey - mainly just to see what it would turn out like.

Anyway, here is the link to the site:

http://hawk6.home.insightbb.com/index.htm

Check it out. I've got info on minis there (most of what I've shared here already, plus a little more). Just click on the links on the left of the home page: "Tamiya Minis", "Building a Mini".

I've included hop-up part numbers and basic set-up info I've dug up along the way.

Hope it helps a couple more people get interested in minis.

Hey Scott;

Your site is pretty cool... One suggestions though. Where's the link to Cheese City X-treme RC under the track section. HUH!!!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy


When you get it finished we can discuss having it link off of the home page. Similar to what the Brodhead one does.

You noticed. Good, that means at least two people have looked at my site. I feel like Steve Martin in "The Jerk" when the new phone books arrived. Very Happy

I can't be telling the world Cheese City is my home track until there is a track right?

I'll get the link there soon.

Now that we know we will be racing Tamiya Minis, I thought I'd post the rules typically used for Tamiya Minis. For anyone racing Minis, please post here if you have any questions or don't agree with using these rules. Thanks.


Race Rules for Tamiya Minis (based on Tamiya Championship Series rules):
· Tamiya parts only for chassis, body, tires, wheels, shocks

· Can use any radio, ESC, servo, ball bearings, tire inserts

· Stick pack batteries only (larger than 4200 mAh may not fit chassis)

· No chassis lightening allowed

· Kit type closed-endbell, silver can motor only (Mabuchi or Johnson) must be used.

· Maximum pinion for M03 chassis is 20 tooth, for M04 chassis 21 tooth. (Pinions are metric size, NOT standard 48 or 64 pitch).

· Any Tamiya plastic or aluminum damper may be used.

· Any Tamiya short or regular size spring may be used.

· Any Tamiya Hop-Op Option and spare part is allowed as long as it is used in the way it was designed, and on the vehicle it was designed for. It is strictly forbidden to re-engineer or modify the car in any way other than with Tamiya Hop-Ups.

· Any motor and battery connector or direct hard wiring is allowed.

· Tire conditioners are allowed on rubber tires, but may be restricted at certain venues.

· Any modification not called out specifically in these rules is not legal. If a driver finds a loophole within the rules, that exploitation will be deemed illegal.



What to Buy:

· Tamiya part # 58368 Suzuki Swift M03M kit, includes motor, ESC

· Tamiya part # 50746 (need 2 sets) oil shocks

· Tamiya part # 5333 short springs (to stiffen suspension)

· Tamiya part # 50684 “M Grip” (medium grip) tires for rear

· (4) 11x5mm bearings for transmission

Nice to Have, But Not Required:

· Tamiya part # 53267 TA03 ball differential

· Tamiya part # 53344 aluminum motor heat sink

· Tamiya part #51238 spare suspension parts that might break (uprights, hubs)
