Cain, you're the guy that bought my Xray. Glad you have someone in the area who wants to get started. Unfortunately, our local track, Valkaria R/C has fallen into a questionable status. The consistent race program has gone by the wayside since the ROAR Nats. I am in hopes that the program will once again find its' way back to being one of the best in the state.

However, there is a very consistent weekly carpet program in south Daytona. Great owners with a loyal following. It's about a 75min drive from Melbourne. And no, Hobbytown doesn't race here.

For offroad, have him check out Beachline Hobbies. Top notch in all facets!

Maybe you can get down for visit and some racing too.

Cool. Yeah my nephew does import racing / tuning and he is interested in what I do for him and his family. I saw video online of some stuff at hobbytown here:

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


which from what he says is pretty close by.

Racing was going on there years ago but that's not the case now. Valkaria would also be close to him. Hopefully things will get turned around out there.

thanks for the info. never made any indoor events for onroad but I know some guys in the region where I am living who travel all over for onroad. Very fast guys, I was happy to just be lap traffic at that point lol.

I'll pass the info along, thanks again.
