I will be in Milpitas all day on Tuesday and was wondering if the track is open to general usage (or even setup) all the time? If so I will bring my AWD. Still trying to figure out if I will brave the BART or rent a car to get there. Is the shop well stocked with AWD parts?

Thanks!

Do we need to pay a fee to race? I also wonder if they have a lot of hop-ups or not ...

The track is no longer set-up anymore unless there is an urge to race mini-z's there anymore. Al of the space is used for 1/18th scale offroad cars now.

if you really want to goto a nice track, goto club28 at Daly City. They just got a new RCP track set-up there last night. Its big and its fun. Check them out at www.club28rc.com

Here's a link of a photo of the track:

Roger,

Isn't that the same place that had an RCP Track and then took it out?

nice! I have to check out club 28. I've been practicing at home a lot on the mini96.

TNB: Club28's original track was gray mats. Just last week, club28 just received their RCP track for the first time. It could be possible that the previous owner's of club28 use to have a RCP track that was layed out for a PN race I believe.

GiXXer: let us know when you decide to come out to club28. I'll meet you there when you get a chance to swing by.

Probably not for a long time. But, I do have good news. There will be another hobbyshop opening in Union City California called NorCal Hobbies. This hobbyshop will have a permanet RCP track that will measure 25' x 30'. This wil be the LARGEST mini-z track in Northern California with full parts support. Stay tuned !!

Hey, i've seen that building several times already. They already have the sign up! If any of you guys know where the Bronco Billy's Pizzeria is in Union City, NorCal hobbies is about 1-2 blocks away from it. It's right next to a car stereo shop. Finally a hobby shop that I can actually walk to :D !

Is this shop opened already?? or is it still in construction??

Still under construction. I passed by it today, on my way to my cousin's house. The "garage" door was open and you could see the inside, IT'S HUGE! I believe this used to be a shed warehouse before NorCal Hobbies came.

Just to let you guys know, we received the RCP track last week in many boxes :). The track layout will be the PN world cup finals track :).

Here's the layout of the track:

oh man, that looks awesome. I can't wait to race on that course, would be my first RCP experience :eek: ! Will this and the other tracks be open to anyone, or do you have to join some club that NorCal Hobbies is going to start? I wouldn't mind joining the club...Would be cool if the club participated in HFAY.

FREE!.. The track's still set up. The owner (david) let me clear out some areas to make the track even bigger. Its still a fun place to go if you're not by yourself.. The more people that show up there, the more likely I'm going to be there. The best part.. ITS FREE!

NorCal hobbies track is huge.. but $$.. I.M.O It's worth it if you have a group to go with.

I just visited the NorCal shop yesterday. The track is huge and it is $5/2hours and $10/all day. For a track like that ... it's worth it ...

I haven't raced there yet... Everytime I'm there no-one's on the track. :mad:

Someone set a date to meet up there. I'll go for sure... :D

I'll be practicing on the track (NorCal Hobbies) this whole week Angelo. Come by and i'll help you set-up your car. I practiced today and the track is dialed. I also vacuumed the whole track for us to practice and race on. I was thinking about changing the track layout tommorrow to something more challenging. We also have almost every imaginable part for the MR-02 and the MA-010 from the top 3 mini-z manufactures, including tires from atomic, GPM, and others. Everybody is getting use to the layout including myself. Its time for a change.

nice! I have to check out club 28. I've been practicing at home a lot on the mini96.

How's the mini96? is it too narrow for fast racing? I am thinking of getting one. But wanted to get your opinion. Will you suggest extension mats?

thanks,
leo

Roger...

I just booked my flights, hotel and car last night... We get in Friday around noon.. Looking forward to the PN race next week.. Thanks for the hospitality last week. I ordered the universals last night and Trey is going to help me out with an F1 if my car doesn't come in or if I cant get my older car to work. (the POT is out... and I dont know if I can fit it..) I did read the rules and they are not going to allow the new f1's in the race.. Just in case I will bring one of each and the new AWD I got from you guys.

I am going to call Christian today to see if he is in?!?

FYI everyone.. This place is very nice.. if you have not seen the tracks and shop... your missing out.
