    I hope this schedule fits into your schedule as well. With everything going on in all our lives, schedules are tight. So I did the best I could to fit races in and this is what I came up with. Lets make 2016 at the beach as much fun as last year.

  • 5 minutes from my house. of course i'll be there now i can buy my first mini cooper (i always wanted that thing)
  • Yes! I will be there.
  • Wow, this is great! Some of the most fun racing was at the old
    Brownie's track at Hooters! Fire hoses and all. Good luck guys!
  • I'll be there!!..........And I'm bringing the Cooper!
  • Hey guys with respect to the Mini Cooper or m-chassis class I was thinking to keep it a real competitive class and also to keep it fair I would buy a bunch of Tamiya 540 silver can motors and on the first race have the racers purchase them for a discounted price and I would keep some on hand through out the season for anyone coming to later races or for you guys who want to have a spare. Lets hear from you Mini racers out there. If you want you can post here or call me at the shop.
  • mini coopers might be huge. i just ordered 1 from john brown today
  • Quote: mini coopers might be huge. i just ordered 1 from john brown today

    Might be??? M chassis was always the most popular class with Brownies. It's a great class that doesn't have the kill or be killed attitude that TC has.

    I wonder if Willy still has my M04.
  • Great idea having the Mini Cooper motors come from you John. Keeps things at a level playing field.
  • I'm fine with you supplying the motors John.

  • it's better off having john supply the motors. try to keep it even
  • O.K. it looks like you guys are in favor of me getting the 540 motors. I think its the right decision. It will make for some great racing and more fun also. I'm still looking for more fire hose. If anybody has any or knows where some is I will be happy to go and take the ride to pick it up. Keep your eyes open for it. Talk to you soon with more up dates
  • John or Craig: Is this only tamiya racing? If not will there be a brushless class? 17.5? 13.5? 10.5? just wondering. It's great to see someone else running some Parking lot racing in the 5 boroughs..
