Default Brownies Hobbies - Racing again in Staten Island, NY!

Yes we're back!! It's been 10 years since we've been racing with all of you and we've sure missed it. We look forward to seeing all the old faces and the new ones too at the track. Our hobby has changed a bunch over the years, but one thing stayed the same. FUN and Friend!! I'm looking forward to seeing all of you this summer. Getting to run some of my old cars will be great!! If you have any questions call me @ the hobby shop (718)727-2194

Well it's finally here RACING @ THE BEACH 2013 (pending)

The schedule is as follows: Sandy shortened season!
August 25th
September 8th
September 22nd


I hope this schedule fits into your schedule as well. With everything going on in all our lives, schedules are tight. So I did the best I could to fit races in and this is what I came up with. Lets make 2012 at the beach as much fun as last year.

THANKS

Just a little more info about Brownie's Hobbies racing. We will have bathroom and food facilities in walking distance. The racing will be held at Midland Beach. A newly paved section of what used to be a roller rink.

Hey guys with respect to the Mini Cooper or m-chassis class I was thinking to keep it a real competitive class and also to keep it fair I would buy a bunch of Tamiya 540 silver can motors and on the first race have the racers purchase them for a discounted price and I would keep some on hand through out the season for anyone coming to later races or for you guys who want to have a spare. Lets hear from you Mini racers out there. If you want you can post here or call me at the shop.

Might be??? M chassis was always the most popular class with Brownies. It's a great class that doesn't have the kill or be killed attitude that TC has.

I wonder if Willy still has my M04.

Great idea having the Mini Cooper motors come from you John. Keeps things at a level playing field.

O.K. it looks like you guys are in favor of me getting the 540 motors. I think its the right decision. It will make for some great racing and more fun also. I'm still looking for more fire hose. If anybody has any or knows where some is I will be happy to go and take the ride to pick it up. Keep your eyes open for it. Talk to you soon with more up dates

John or Craig: Is this only tamiya racing? If not will there be a brushless class? 17.5? 13.5? 10.5? just wondering. It's great to see someone else running some Parking lot racing in the 5 boroughs..
