Just going by the tracks that I've seen or been to, either the Hobbyplex in Omaha or the A-Main Hobbies track in Chico, CA.

If there are bigger tracks, I'd like to know too.

The CORRC temp track from 07/08 might have been the biggest in history. I forget the dimensions.

New track is going to be dialed. Work starts this week!

I'll second Mike's in Texas. I'd guess 120 x 70. I enjoyed my 4 days of practice there.

most of the time when they have 2 or 3 day events, the TZ crew are kind enough to let people camp out or they find a spot for them to sleep for a couple of nights LOL hence the need for showers LOL

if your ever in the NW give them a call and check them out!!
