I unfortunately couldn't get more added before it was shipped, but can provide the website if you'd like to order one yourself. I placed my order on Sunday and received Wednesday from France.

Is there going to be practice / racing this weekend?

Thanks for sharing Billy, and as always appreciate all the footage!
Here's some montage of a few random pics to go alone with that....

Depends on what you want to spend. I’m using a basically box stock Mr03. Only tires and pinion gear have been changed. Some are using highly modified MiniZ. Jomurema is another, but hard to find.

The guys have just become a vendor for GLRacing. That’s another option. There’s one in the second video,stock group B.


next race is Sunday March 3rd. I’ve got a spare stock MiniZ if interested in trying.

Most in the mod class were Jomurema. Unfortunately that’s the hardest to find. And not a starting class. Depends what you want to spend. And if using your controller is a factor, or ok with an RTR controller. If you’d like to use a controller you have, I’d suggest looking into the GL kits. Think those completed are in the $4-500 range. My RTR Mr03, with new sets of tires is just under $200

I'd suggest you go in on a race day and see what everybody is running. There's a big variety between jomurema, GLRacing, and MiniZs. I'm new to the group myself but everybody was super helpful in getting my car set up.

I went with the GLR, and am looking at the GLA v2.1 next. You can build these cheaper or more expensive just like any rc car. Your budget is the ultimate decider, but whether you go MiniZ for a slower more stock type class or GLR for faster brushless is really up to you.
