      Only just found this place, ive spent all my time at MZR forums, im in mascot, with a GT3(battered)Ch5, and more than happy to find some races in sydney.

      i have few hop ups for handling, more on the way including fets for turbo modding.

      Hope to see you at the track.

      um i think u mean FETs not crystals..crystals are what governs the freq…3004 are what come in the z and IRF7389s are what most people use…im not sure they are the best tho..aparantly people use “secret” FETs, stingy bums wont say what they use…
      and also i found out that dse, jaycar, and altronics dont have crystals over 10mhz… but i can get 25mhz easy enough..would this work?

      GT-ahh, the circuit is usually designed to use a certain freq. e.g you might need to replace numerous components to get it to work. just buy the proper kit that has all the xtals.

      How does newtown or sydney uni sound for a place to race. i will check it out for carparks, netball or basketball courts.

      The city is about as far as i could go for a z race unless its a huge meet.

      For the south side there are a couple of really nice netball courts to race on, just need people and something for the track outline.. (chalk?)

      not going to make a PVC track(seen used for carpark racing)yet cause when i buy a flat next year gonna make a home track.

      Welcome to world of ‘big’ RC. 🙂

      mZ use AM xtals on the 27MHz band, they come in matched pairs. If you change your TX xtal you need to change the one in the car too (its that oval hole near the switch on the bottom, pull out its silver tag to yank it out).

      27MHz AM xtals are easily available from any hobby shop, pricewise approx A$12-20/pr. Any brand will work, it doesn’t matter but make sure the RX side goes into the car and that the RX xtal is not too long for the mZ chassis.

      Don’t buy “FM” ones as they’re dearer ($30-40?) and they won’t work in mZ. Also don’t buy ones on other bands (29, 40Mhz etc) as you’ll detune your radio system and severely lose range.
