My name's Mathieu, "mamathieu" on Ondarun 2 or Z Club Mulsanne (team name) and yes, I'm Sarthois as well (from Mulsanne...)
I now live at Angers during the week for my studies and I do a lot of kit cars (Mini-z, I invite you to go have a look on our site www.zcm.fr or directly on our forum http://zclubsarthe.heberg-forum.net/portal.php ).
The club organises open days from time to time which are really good fun.
They're not toys but real little jewels despite their small size (1/28th scale), I personally spend 3 hours a week on them, easily, preparing and cleaning them jsut like the pros
For the scale, it's very quick and very precise and the races.... great passing moves etc...
