Plafit Mini Z Teams Enduro At X-Treme Trax

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

X-Treme Trax Dapto are hosting a Plafit Mini Z 4 hour teams enduro on Satuday 11th May.

We will be racing on the 2 tracks upstairs,the newly re-painted Pitstop track & Diggers track.

X-Treme will also be hosting the 2013 Australian Plafit Championship in August & the Enduro was seen as an ideal way to get some practice on what we think is the best 6 lane track in the country.

This will also be a good event for people new to Plafit racing to exchange ideas on setups with some of our locals who have learned a lot about Plafits over the years & are very willing to give tips on what has worked for them.

There is no limit to the number of teams entering but early nominations to Alec at the track or on this thread would be appreciated so we can cater for the most important part of the day,the Barby :D

Here's the Pitstop Track which is similar to a King but with the donut arse about & we run in clockwise direction.With the new gloss finish the Plafit sponge tyres just love it & creates some very fast close racing.

With seven Kids between us (that is i have three kids to my wife and Jason has four to his) Balls are the least of our problems. Fast cars and driving ability is what we lack.

Any new guys interested in building their own chassis for this event check out Paulthetexan's build thread.

Make no mistake, he builds some of the fastest Plafits in the country.

 

Only thing missing from his very informative guide is mounting the body which is a very important aspect of setting up a fast car. I will be assembling a car soon and will share how I mount the bodies, I encourage any other racers to provide some input on this also. Very much looking forward to this event, should be a cracker.

Great to have you on board Jimmi,I'm not sure if you have raced Plafits before but you will love them even more after this race.

Paul the Texan has put up an excellent article on how to set up a Mini Z & if you follow all his tips you will have a very good car to play with.

If you come down to X-Treme for some practice just give Alec a ring to make sure the track is free of birthday parties especially on weekends or even better come on Thursday nights 1/24th scale racing & get to know all the locals who will help you with your car set up.

Cheers Jimmy :D

Caught up with John Armundson at Penrith slot cars on Friday night & can now confirm that we will pair up for the Enduro.

Not sure what to call the team,maybe Fossils as our combined age adds up to resemble a postcode. :blink:

We now have 8 teams confirmed & another 4 or 5 still deciding on partners so I would expect about 12 teams minimum but the more the merrier.

Cheers Jimmy :D
