7mm - mini-z track in taichung, taiwan

if you haven't seen it, i suggest looking at this thread first ----> mini-z in taiwan

1/7

7mm mini-z track in taichung taiwan

7MM 遙控模型玩具室內車場
地址:台中市西屯區重慶路99號3樓之二(青海路口)

Taichung
tel no 0958097035
business hours: wed/fri 6:30-10:30pm / 3:30 – 10:30pm

7mm was quite near to where I stayed in taichung, probably a 10 min walk away, but since it was late and trying to save time, i took a cab.... From the information that ilove599xx (a fellow member on these forums) gave, along with the reference pictures I saw on the internet care of their f_ _ e b_ _ k page (first word rhymes with mace, second hook)... the track was pretty easy to find as there was a sign outside the building.

a friend came along with me to the track... it was pretty handy that he spoke a little chinese (mandarin in particular) and it was a good thing too since my mandarin was quite limited to hello, thank you, and goodbye...

upon reaching the third floor, you could tell where the track was...

my friend an i went in. and we were met by shao chong, who was in charge... he said that the owners left word that i would be dropping by...

since language was such a barrier, i just took as many pictures as i could... the actual track surface is carpet and the layout was challenging...

after taking some pictures and looking at some parts, i decided to purchase some stuff...

my friend prodded me on and asked if i wanted to try out their track since i purchased some stuff... i said ok... so he turned to shao chong and asked in mandarin if I could try one of their cars for a couple of minutes...

luckily one of the guys at the track relented, and lent me his car to test... it was an atomic chassis with a sc430 body... i couldn't really tell if it was a 4wd or a 2wd... but after looking at the pictures... it looked like a 4wd...

the white and blue sc430 bottom left, being prepped up... for... me...

it was the first time i got to drive the atomic chassis, and everything felt smooth... except for my driving... which was pretty rusty... hahaha... it eventually got a little smoother after a couple of laps...

and just like that it was time to go... not without purchasing a couple of autoscale bodies... 2 dnano batteries, and a d nano x-speed motor... (wish i bought some dnano tires as well)... sigh...

here are some other pics of the place...




one guy trying out the new honda

HOLY CRAP!!! Keep my Visa FFFAAAARRRR away from that place lol. That is Mini-Z heaven, just look at the inventory in that place.

I could only dream about that over here in North America (let alone Canada), just not a big enough scene to warrant that kinda stock (unless a lottery winner takes an interest in MiniZ lol).

Thanks for the pics, love the pit stations.

actually for me, this is r/c heaven ----> click me (been fortunate enough to go there several times through the years)

they've got r/c shops located pretty close together so if you're looking for anything, you're most likely to find it...

as for tracks... there are a couple over there as well.. this is the latest one i've been to (way back in 2014) ----> click here to go to rcpkhk
