Unhappy

Anybody know what tracks are av ailable in the SF Bay Area these days? Many of the old tracks aren't running anymore.

I know Hobbytown in San Carlos has moved to the east bay, but they aren't up and running in the new store yet. Kei Stylist has a small non-RCP track up in the north bay, and there is a garage track that a few folks were trying to run earlier in the summer, but it seemed to lose steam.

Question for Bay area peoples

I would be willing to set up track (RCP Two wide L) in Livermore East bay.

I order for me to do this ,set up and take down (It will be outside)

I will have to charge.. What would you expect to pay to have a track you could race on???

Also I will rent cars out to get others involved...

It would be evey other sunday???

What I would like to eventualy do is rent a building with more permanent place to race....

Any thoughts?????

Hopefully when the new Hobbytown opens up in Fremont it will become THE place for Z racing in the bay area. A 4X setup of RCP tracks plus a good supply of parts and sets should go a long way to establishing a solid Z community. I know that I will be dragging at least 6 people to the races as I was responsible for getting them into it, and I can't wait to meet some of the other locals around here.

October is only a week away so maybe we should all focus on getting everyone involved with that instead of setting up spot tracks. I know my PVC pipe track at work here in Fremont is getting a bit long in the tooth....

Have you guys tried Z-club? They moved south from japan town to somewhere, can't remember. I went there after they opened up. That track is huge, non-rcp, maybe fatigue mats. Alot of fun and I think it's like 8 bucks an hour. I did notice that they hook you up as I think they don't get as much business as they would like. They also hold tournaments there. They had one and gave away rtr sets and even a flat panel lcd. Good people there too. They love to help fix your car up and tune it. They have a FET service there also. Normal pricing and if you burn it up there at the track they most likely will fix it for free(they did for me anyway ). Check it out I think it's zclubrcc.com? It's alot of fun.

Saturdays are NICE at the hobbytown. Also the Hobbytown in San Carlos, I believe moved to Palo Alto?

There is also perhaps the event of a private track coming up late this summer, run by a firend of mine in hayward. He is thinking of starting a bay area Mini-Z Club.

The Hobbytown in Fremont is great, but I'd visit a new track in Hayward. I have a lot of RCP track too and would be willing to combine it with someone else's track. Got a lap timer on order too, so we have real racing.

Hey thought I would bump this thread. I am in the bay area and new to mini-z. Thought I might like to try out some pro tracks somewhere or race for fun (dunno how popular it is though...)

I had a few questions though. Typically how old are the people that goto these and are there people who actively take part in these?

The age ranges but it doesn't matter. Just have fun with you min z.

Are you worried that you're too old for us?

If you are in the bay area, check this place out.
It is a fun,big track, everyone there is nice, and they have great selection of parts.
I've only been a handful of times, but have always left wishing it was closer to me...
