Sundays at CARCAR alternate between open practice days (all classes, no races) and Mini Sunday (Mini Races). CARCAR Mini Sunday is a more relaxed, family-oriented event with a dedicated kids class. Sundays are an ideal opportunity for beginners to hone their skills and for kids to race other kids in a friendly environment. Mini Sundays feature the Tamiya Mini (or equivalent) chassis only.
Chassis: All M-Series Chassis (M-03, M-04, M-05, M-06, M-07) Only. If you don’t already own one of these chassis, please consult with one of our Race Directors prior to buying one.
Motors: ORCA 2200KV (Blue), SkyRC (Orange), Silver Can (Stock Kit Motor)
Tires: Tamiya 60D Tires (Kit, M-Grip, S-Grip)
Transponders: A Transponder is needed for the computer to time laps and score races. If you do not own one, you may borrow one by leaving your car keys.
Pit Tables: Pit Tables are available on site and can be setup in Row 9. These tables belong to the horseshoe club and MUST be kept clean. You are expected to cover the table with a mat or towel.
CARCAR Members: Free
Non-Members: Adults: $10 Kids: $5
A Few Words on Kids Racing RC
CARCAR Sunday can be a great way to spend the day with the family. Bring Mom too -the ladies are often excellent drivers! We have a separate class just for kids so they can race with others at their own skill level. Parents should understand that the focus is to provide a friendly and supportive environment for kids to become familiar with R/C and racing in general. The kids class is not intended to be a highly structured race and clean driving (i.e. without hitting the barriers or other cars.) is the primary goal. The club has transponders (these are put into the cars so the computer can keep track of when each car crosses the start/finish line) to lend at no additional cost. In most cases, 5 years of age and older is the appropriate age for the kids class: kids younger than 5 tend to lack the coordination needed to get a car around the track. Younger kids are certainly welcome to try it out in the practice sessions. Non-racing parents and children are welcome to come and watch.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Sunday events are not a daycare! Parents are required to ‘wrench’ for their kids (fix their cars, charge batteries, etc.) and keep an eye on them. Don’t panic if you don’t know about R/C cars, we are happy to help and teach!
