This year’s circuit is “Miracle Ballon Circuit 2019”
A total length of 225m “Miracle Ballon Circuit 2019” with a number of sections placed in 14 venues across the country. The official course of 2019 has three course layouts: North (North), East (East), West (West) and the division of the tournament area. The course image above is “Miracle Ballon Circuit 2019 North”. We will make timely announcements about other layout images and divisions. Look forward to the follow-up!


All three layout patterns! Check the circuit section of “North”
-“Digital Zone 2” (new section)
Mini 4WD Grand Prix 2019 Spring “Step Circuit 2019” appeared in the “Digital Zone” is a combined section that was further increased in power and more digital. Two consecutive digital dragonbacks where the machine jumps up and down after two consecutive digital corners where the machine is vigorously shaken to the left to the right are waiting for two more consecutive digital corners. It is important to prevent the deceleration here to put the machine on top speed immediately after the start. Be careful with the second and third laps as you rush into the section with speed.
● “kicker flap” (new section)
Install a flap-type device in the part where the straight with height jumps discontinuously. A light machine jumps upward without flaps falling, a heavy machine jumps parallel to the track surface with flaps falling. The weight of the machine changes the movement of the flap, and the lightweight machine has the risk of jumping off the course. The weight and angle at which the flap responds may vary from venue to venue.
● “Rising Phantom Changer” (New Section)
Rare Section “Phantom Changer” is further evolved. The caution section where speed and power are required that the machine on the speed climbs a gentle slope and lands on a wide landing, and then runs up a steep slope with an angle of 60 degrees.
● “Balancing straight” (new section)
The width of both sides of the straight course spreads, the road surface on both sides of the straight of the machine width becomes low, and if it does not run straight, the chassis contacts the road surface and significant speed loss Could lead to Only those sections that have a major impact on the running stability of the machine need careful setting.
● A 90-degree curve named “Fujitsu Pop” with the name of Fujitsu dry battery offering “Fujitsu Pop” Japan Cup. A sharp curve section that looks easy, but doesn’t look like it looks as the machine passes at high speed.
● “New Era Turn”
A corner bearing the name of the cap brand New Era that supports Champion Cap. The point is to pass the corners smoothly to accelerate the machine towards the second half of the course.
● “Flap Straight”
An area that uses special materials for the track surface that stands by straight after the up slope. What kind of material is it? Let’s wait for the appearance of the actual course!
