Default PIX FROM HOT ROD HOBBIES

I've been racing at Hot Rod Hobbies the past two weeks and been having a good time so just this past Sat. I took the time to takes some pics of the track, way too much fun for our CRT.5 mini truggy hoping to see more of you .5 racers out there.

Hmm, I think I may have to go. Its not too bad of a drive from Santa Barbara. Still rocking the .5 I see! BTW Dj, does there happen to be power? What about a way to clean ones car between heats?

At Rezenclowd, You could have come with me the other weekend rather than doing taxes or whatever you said you had to do! and there is power.

At Steve Walters, the pit lane is not to die for but it isnt bad. The track is great, they have a fairly small space but its a great layout, all the lanes are plenty wide, and it is a blast to drive.

Power is plentiful, there are outlets all along the tables (Except for the rickety table in the front in picture 5).

There are a couple of water hoses but there isn't a cleaning station or anything. However, loads of people bring air compressors (me being one of them) and i'm sure you could use it if you ask nice enough

That looks like a dialed layout. It looks a lot of fun. Great job HRH track crew. I need to get up there for some club racing soon. Thanks for posting the pictures R2.

Later.

Haha, ya...that weekend was boring for me, and even worse when I found out how much I owed to Big Brother.

Hot Rods is a nice place. There's a little shade and the track is definitely dialed. It looks like it would be great for 1/10th scale. I like the last layout they had. It had a good sized triple. It was better for the 1/8th scale. I had a blast when I went. They are really pro's at putting on a race.
