no, yes? I don't know??

This is why I got out of the hobby long ago, seems no one in Fl. is willing to help or answer questions. Everytime I go to a hobbystore i get an attitude (like I'm supposed to know everything already). I ask about tracks I get the deer in the headlights look? I would really like to race my car but don't know of any tracks south of Naples? Maybe I should buy a monster truck and launch it off some sweet jumps?

Maybe, you should. Maybe your asking he wrong people. We have a track in Royal Palm ,but you said in FTL/MIA. There are not that many people that run Oval in Dade/Broward that are on these forums.

If your getting that kind of service from the Hobby store, maybe it is time to shop at another shop. There are plenty of people in the state that will help you out, but if people do not know the answer, are they being rude ?

Or maybe they are waiting for someone like Katfish to give you the full info on Oval in the state....


Not trying to start a pissing match here, but I think there are alot of people that are willing to help.......

Nah.... I know the feeling... problem is.. most of the shops down here are not affiliated with any track, and they have no percieved vested intrest in racing. They can sell a 500-1000 truck.... and off the customer goes.... it is much more lucrative.

Hi,

Is Royal Palm a Paved or Dirt Oval?
Any info on track size?
Gotta website?
Nitro or Electric?

Could be interesting.

Actually it's a TC track. It's awesome. I took a trip up there last week to see it and it was 1st class. I also visited MDI Racing where I picked up my Xray, they were also top notch and had great service. The commute from Miramar to Royal Palm was around 40 minutes, not bad at all. I'll be up there more often!
