A new hobby shop and track opened in newburgh ny on monday 5/09/05 and the 1st race is friday 5/13/05 @ 7pm.

The web site is www.ttminisports.com

I have been running some hot laps for fun and the surface is great.

They are soon to build a dirt track down stairs for the new half 8's

if anyone is in the neighbourhood I'd like to see some videos of a race on that track. Looks nice... not many hobby shops go for a custom built yet modular (sort of) track. Looks very interesting!

It is about 1 hour north of the city. Call the shop for directions. After U get off the newburgh exit of the nys thruway it is about 5 minutes.

Yeah, but not in a while. If U have been @ the barn, Tony would sometimes run the races. He is the one who opened TT mini sports. The other T is for Todd that owns Tarmac.

I just got back from racing and it was a blast. Small turn out but still fun. The ko lap counting system will be in by the end of the month. For now he is hand counting on auto score. We were turning around 40 laps in 5 mins with the different layouts and bone stock mr-01 and mr-02's.

If I was coming from Albany NY would I take exit 17 off the NY state thruway?
Also did you prepay for the KO system? Because just about every shop in the US has called me with the same problems that we had with it.

What problems are other tracks having with the lap counting system?

Itís to complicated to explain on the forum Iíll just give your shop a call. When are you at your shop and what exit are you guys at off the NY state thruway?

I got a question about track fees, is there really that much interest and people coming out daily to charge for track usage? The reason I ask is that there is a few shops locally that have Z tracks and there isn't a constant customer base to warrant the fees. Granted the Z following isn't as big in western Canada as there are 3 shops that carry K cars IW cars locally that even have an area big enough to run them indoors.

The answer is simple if no one is willing to pay to use them then you wonít have any local tracks to race at. At some point the local shops will realize that the tracks are taking up valuable commercial space and start to see them as useless overhead.

Hi Everybody,

Thanks for the kind comments about our Mini-z track!

I hope that all of you who came in the past few Friday & Saturday Nites ,had a great time. I was surprized how many of you enjoyed the 1:32 Scale Slotcar track! There was more cross-over interest between R/C cars and slots than I ever thought possible. I quess we can't resist anything with wheels on it!
I know I enjoy both myself.

Until next week.

TT

I saw that you only have a stock and modified class. Hows about an open class? Or even a non-turbo/FET open class?

We could run an open class if people show up with them.

Just a little update...Here are the classes that we are running on Friday nights.

RWD Class - No limitations
AWD Class - No limitations
High Mount Class - Limitations, kit motor and kit PCB
Overland Offroad - Limitations, kit motor and kit PCB
.....New Class......
Porsche Cup Spec Class - Limitations, no upgrades of any kind are allowed except for metal wheel nuts. Kit settings for toe, camber, offset, and kit springs must be used. Kit tredded tires on classic rims must be used. Cars will be inspected each race. Older style PCB with out the higher power output must be used. This class is designed to allow for very close racing, door to door...bumper to bumper.

I just set up my car last night and I am surprised how well a bone stock MR-015 car can go with just a little fine tuning. All I did was align the tires on the rims, grease the king pins and the rear shock and it went really good.
