Isn't it about time YOU open a track of your own, Mr. Thunderbolt Hobbies?

Believe me anyone thats been to vineland knows how nice it is.. there hasn't been practice for as long as Ive been going there. ron and linda run the best program and are super nice people... just let it go and dont be bitter.. you may miss a race there and could have raced with some of the best racers on the east coast.

Dude ,drop it and close this thread. BOO- HOO so you did not get to practice. When you run your own hobby store and track ...do what you want. By you bashing this track (that I have never been to) you gain nothing. They will not lose any customers because of your posts, you will not cost them a single penny. In fact you will will NOT even gain anything by continuing this lunacy. Move on with your life and try to find peace through some other outlet. I'm not saying your a nut ... but for some one to take the time to do what you are trying to do( bad mouth a race track ) is kind of crazy. Especially with the way the economy it is today. Every track has its ''regulars'', it's ''clicks'' ,its new comers ,it's loners and so on and so on. Try to find a place that accepts you for the anal nut you are and be happy to belong somewhere. A great man once told me that ,I think it was my garbage man.(but it is good advise) its all in good fun

No practice days = you can't practice with your 18th scale
No 18th scale class = you can't RACE your 18th scale either.

Am I the only one not seeing a problem? It sounds to me.. which was solidified by the employees response on the thread, that the one with the attutude, was you.. the caller.

Sounds like an awesome race program to me!

Any track that's been around as long as Family Hobbies has to be doing something right. If memory serves me right they hosted the first ever ROAR offroad nats, and they're still around in 2010. I raced there occasionally in the late 90's and loved it, still my favorite offroad track.

Yeah man totally awesome
Family Hobbies is LAME.
I even tried to join their stupid forum and had to wait about a week for an approval. In the email they sent they just asked me if I raced. As if only racers need apply. What a JOKE.

its to keep those sissy 1/18 scale super bad ass racers, like you, out. you must enjoy making an ass out of yourself. open your own track and see how you make out with that attitude.

After looking at pics of the track I don't blame them for lack of practice time it's not easy to maintain a track.

Oh My !! Vineland is sacred kid !! My first away race was there at the eastern states challenge 3 years ago. Sooo hard and challenging. You would have broke your little car in 5 mins dude.

I go there twice every year at least. Go get a buggy come down at the end of summer and catch the rays bra ! You ain't loving rc if you hate this beautiful track.
