Body Modifications for Perfect Stance

Posted 08-26-2012 at 04:21 AM by color0
One of the great things about the Mini-Z's styrene plastic body is that it is a lot more modification-friendly than the polycarbonate bodies used in other scales. You can cut, sand, polish, weld, melt, etc. allowing you to push the envelope on your creation, whether that is reducing weight for racing, adding lights for show, or, as we'll be covering here, achieving the perfect lowered stance while keeping the car driveable.

Functional Art, Part 3

Short follow-up this time...

For the club title, I printed half a dozen options at least before settling on the final selection. I believer it's a good fit for the club, it's mission and personality. It was not the easiest option for sure but I feel it fit the best.

Functional Art, Part 2

Posted 08-25-2012 at 11:47 AM by arch2b
I immediately dove into the 'art' portion of the build which is dressing the bridge channel. It starts with of course the 2x2x36 aluminum channel. This sounds like a lot of surface area to work with but the limitations of working within a 2" vertical dimension gets tricky.

36" just fits the width of a two tile wide RCP 50cm track. These come in various widths and can easily find a length that will fit a 3 tile wide track however that limits you to only 3 tile wide tracks...

After completing my 1st custom Giro-z Bridge I was given the opportunity to manufacturer an improved version I learned a lot of fabrication lessons on mine that will hopefully make this one easier to build and perfect right out of the gate.

First build


To begin with, I order 90% of this stuff from Amazon simply because it was more cost efficient. I'm sure i could source these materials...

599XX: Flex and Aero Short Post

Lack of Internet last week, sorry guys.... anyways, new developments.

I recently got to run my 599 and Grant M's 599 back to back, and I noticed that while mine is WAY more stable in the rear end, Grant's loses only a little bit of rear end stability but gains a lot of front end traction, whether or not the front grill is opened up. The result of this was me getting owned at our Kenon "hot lap" battles, 8.036 vs. 7.852. Clearly I'm not happy about that so I've got work...
