Default Awesome Track in Texas...Mike's Hobby.

I don't live, race, or ever been to this place but it looks awesome. The use of space and running off and onroad at the same time is kicka##.

With 2.4Mhz radios I still think more tracks should do this if they have space. Anyway someone sent me that link and it's a pretty trick setup. If you control the camera you can see the entire on and offroad facility.

Mikes is a very nice place. the people are friendly, and there are plenty of parts in the shop! they are loose on what you run, you can run brushed or brushless, nimh or lipo, whatever floats your boat! just run the right motor for your class and thats all! the environment is great to be in, and everyone seems to respect it. i just wish i lived closer to it!

Track is in Carrollton, TX. A suburb of Dallas. Now if he would only run nitro I would live there. He even has pit rooms for rent on a monthly basis, there always rented out. Mikes is a great place for RC.
