Default TCS ( June 8, 2008 ) NorCal Hobbies

For those racers that haven't been to NorCal Hobbies, I will be posting photos later on this evening of both tracks (on and off road). These photos will also be posted on www.rcracing.com for others to see. There will also be a warm-up race on June 7th for those that need more track time. The tracks are normally open during business hours of 12pm to 7pm; wednesday through sunday for practice. I will also have the track directors post here for details entailing TCS or you can visit www.tamiyausa.com. Stay tune for more further developements.

Some details can be found here:

Video of Lex Tyler and Ling Tong ( Video provided by Kevin Jelich ). The video isn't that clear, but it will provide some info on how the track flows:

( NOTE: I am NOT a track director nor am I affiliated with TCS. I am just posting photos for the owner's of NorCal Hobbies per thier request. )

Default Off-Road Track

The off-road track is off the hook. Traction is tremendous. Maybe Racenut 123 can elaborate a little more since he is the traction masta !!

Here are some photos I took today:

Sick! Traction is very high for the offroad.I have been running the same slicks in practice for days.

The onroad has good traction too.The tracks will be hooked up come TCS like they usually are for club racing.
