Columbus Ohio racing?

Anybody racing around Columbus?
I know Tom Thumb and Cyclone have both said that they are setting up tracks. Smoke Stack hobby in Lancaster has a track setup and guys get together there every tuesday evening.
Any other shops running mini-z?

Tom Thumb setting up again? If not mistaken, they used to have RCP track back circa 2004 and held a Kyosho Mini-Z Cup race there.

I just called Tom Thumb. They are setting up to run mini-z again. They are holding a slot car championship race middle of March and after that they will be setting up the rcp track. They are hoping to be up and running beginning of April.

When I mentioned HFAY to the gentleman on the phone, he said they did run it when they had their track setup. So he was familiar with it.

Sounds good, if they ran it in previous years hopefully they have eyes on the current surge of HFAY and decide they want to jump back in it.

Mini-Z is almost back

We are currently building the timing bridge and planning multiple track layouts. The footprint we used before will no longer work as we have remodeled extensively. I Lap will be the scoring system and both Kyosho and RC Kenon products should be in stock the week of April 1st. As before the track will NOT be permanent because of the many national level slot car races we host. Current thinking is we will build the track on Fridays for practice and have organized racing on Saturdays. Schedule and rules to follow. However we WILL be focusing on stock or close to stock racing to keep the investment down for the racers. But don't worry there will be something for all the "GO-FAST" racers too.

And HFAY is definitely in the mix.

Thanks EMU it was great meeting you also. Racing mini-z is a great family activity for us. My father in law and his cousin race in hfay with us at our house also. There is a lot of smack talk that goes on in our basement

I can imagine. Whenever I race in Maryland with dwight and his guys, there is lots of smack talk! Definitely adds to the experience... it's great that you have made the hobby a family affair, I wish that my brothers and friends outside of the hobby would have moe interest, but at this point it's a long way for them to catch up.
