New track is going to be dialed. Work starts this week!
I'll second that, it was MASSIVE at 120'x60'. I raced 19t 1/12 on it, tons of fun, and very high speeds!

I have to say TimeZone I & II are probably the closest to a country club for RC racers as you can get.
Thursday Night Races are a blast and we always break for dinner; throw some dogs on the grill and have a bite to eat together. We share our setups and ideas; it's a very freindly place. The carpet is fantastic and the drivers stand is nice and high so you never have a problem seeing your car. The projector screen TV puts your lap times up and is visable from any spot in the pits. AND "The popcorn is always free at TimeZone raceway"

I want to thank everyone for their inputs and responses. I wanted to get a feel for the larger tracks before RCRIOT made its announcement that it will be joining this realm of tracks.

Thumbs up Largest track

If Time Zone II isnt the largest in the nation... I would have to say that it is deffinetly the BEST! Mark and Rick are the coolest guys you could ever meet! Oohh... and you cannot forget the man Mr Dave Eurlich! This place has the best environment everyone is freindly and willing to share ideas along with helping new guys. This place only exists because of two guys with a vision and passion for r/c racing. I want to give a SHOUT OUT to them and say Thank You!!! If your ever in the NW and have a chance to stop in and vist Time Zone I or II its a great experience!!!!

Default FACT

I had a chance to race Rc riot in Albuquerque for the new years gran prix. The track is pretty sick, very smooth lots of traction. There were alot of pit tables, tire truing station, set up board and compressor etc.... Most importantly of all CLEAN SH!TTERS!

It is actually a huge track, biggest indoor carpet track I've seen. And bigger than all the tracks I see on liverc.com. It will be nice to see racers from all over start going to rc riot once the word is out. I see huge turn outs for tracks that are half the size and not nearly as nice.

Nice facility
