Default 1/12 Track ?

I've just moved back to town and every time I think I've found a 1/12 carpet or pavement track they are closed down. I have a couple of pan cars that I'm really itching to drive ... the St in front of my house is too rough - are the local tennis courts really the best 'track' I'm going to find In the whole Phoenix-Metro area?

I'll definitely stop on by to check out the action! Thanks! As Chris knows, my 1/12 tastes are a little bit on the fringe…the cars I'm working with aren't ever going to be race-worthy (unless there’s a vintage 1/12 class in the works) except maybe for my Plazma RA, which will need some mods to conform to any class specs…

I’m really looking for some folks who want to turn some ‘laps’ for kicks - it’s always more fun driving with other people…maybe just need to scout out some freshly paved parking lots before the hellish heat arrives so I can dust off my Kyosho Fantom and a handful of other ancient miscellaneous 1/12 relics that are finally ready to run. BTW, Chris - I may have some more bodies for you to work your magic on before too long

Looks like Hobby Action is planning a carpet track - at least according to their facebook page

I get the impression they mean a carpet off road style track; so our 1/12 pan cars are still SOL.

Well, that would be unfortunate, both for every road racer in AZ and the shop because they seem to be able to do both at 702 in Vegas.
