I wish Tamiya still had a booth...it was awesome seeing all there kits a few years ago.

But, I will still go too....great time with friends/family. My two friends, my brother and I took the controls of the rustlers at the "try-me" track last year. They were suprised we knew how to race and they called it like a race, it was pretty cool

Schaumburg convention center doesn't have union backed trades working the site?

Are you sure?

I will do the same...but this year, I will go on Thursday and Friday....and Sunday with J-Lo....(freebie on these 2 trade days..can't miss that).

According from Ammdrew (Serpent - mowery)...they will have a TRACK (carpet onroad) there this year..........hope that is the REAL DEAL cause it is not 100% confirmed yet.

Yes...Thomas the train is still plenty fast on carpet....according from my daughter...LOL

Looking forward to it. I will get to see a bunch of my friends like Jari and Team Tekin! I'll even get to try one of Jari's cars I think just for the fun of it.

It's actually going to be the RCP Track that was in place at the MMR Challenge at the Anoka, MN Armory this last April.

Still, a great track to race/test on. We've started the '07-'08 'indoor' season by running 18Ts and Recoils with drivers choice of rubber or foams on the RCP with great results.
