Default ORLANDO High End RC ProShops

I am travelling to Orlando next week. Would like to visit LHS that specializes in the higher end stuff. XRAY, Ko, Novak etc. Any local advice? Any tracks I should see while I am there?

Sounds like both Superior and Tq are places I should see. Plan to see both if they are not too far apart and the wifey lets me go .
Thanks for the advice guys.

Go sightseeing and 'accidentally' drive past the first, "Oh look! there is an RC shop!". Then take her out for a nice big lunch or something, and when out sightseeing again later 'accidentally' drive past the second one, "Oh look! another RC shop!".

Well, works for me anyway

Take my advice and visit both shops. TQ Hobbies is owned by the father of Team Xray driver Alex Lopez and they also have a track on site as well. Superior Hobbies is a great shop as well and Superior is the US importer for Corally USA. Like I said, stop by and check out both of them...
