Cool another touring guy in Jacksonville Only touring available is at Hobby World on the westside. Check out Hobbytalk.com on the oval discussion thread, that's where most of them hangout....

Well welcome to Jax. But if you plan on running "weekly" in JAX good luck the touring scene in Jax is all but dead. there are like 5 or 6 guys with touring cars and they don't always run them the good news is your not that far away from a few places that run monthly. and there's always the State series.

If you want to run weekly in Jax I wouls suggest you by a Oval car.

Here you go:

Weekly Friday night racing at Hobby World mostly oval, light turnout for touring but I always bring my car

First Sunday of each month, Superior Hobbies at
Casselbury 2 hour from Jax

Last Sunday of each month, Strickland RC park, Daytona Beach 1 hour from Jax

PNP races once a month also about 3 hours from Jax

and of course our state series

As you can see touring weekly race, its possible

lol well as a former Team Madness driver all I cna saym is there isn't a place like that in jax. the closest thing to it will be superior hobbies or fast track hobbies in Orlando. but since you don't mind driving you should be good. like Rcgen said you can race eveyweek. just not locally. well i take that back you can race touring cars locally but there are only a few guys with them and the driving levels are vast. your best bet is to goto stricklands and superior and the state series.

but don't rule out a oval car. I made the switch 3 years ago and haven't looked back since. we have hobbyworld in Jax stricklands (once a month) and focars starts soon with once a monthe for 6 races. www.focars.net

There's also Tallahassee. Touring has picked up a lot in last 3 months here. We usually race the 4th Saturday of the month at Home Depot West and have been averaging around 25 entries. We run a 19T Spec class, Nitro and our biggest class is Outlaw Mod where ANYTHING goes. This month we're running on March 17. You can get more info from our website at www.tallahasseerc.com.

Yes, we will be running the 3rd Saturdays from now on.

Dawgmeat, we won't give too much grief about being a Cane fan. I'll even let you pit under my FSU tent.

Have we crossed path before? I used to race with some of your brooklyn hobbies drivers JAMIE CORRADO and RENATO DIAZ when they were runnin' electric touring but they only do 12 scale now, oh well, can't wait to get down there, My friend Carl Edwards is trying to sell me his G4 that he hasn't ran so I might run nitro also

by the way when did u move down there
