Default Help

Can anyone put me touch with Royce Berrio? I have some questions that he can help me with. Thanks. Hopefully everyone is doing well at IRH. I miss racing there. Don, track looks better than ever. Keep up the good work. Who knows maybe I will make a future event. It would be fun to be back in NY, and CT. NC is nothing like it. 1/10 racing is all but dead in NC, it' 1/8 country.. thanks in advance for the help.

I just got back into the hobby, I bought a traxxas rustler VXL Brushless just to bash with it. Is there any class to race them at? Also how much is the practice.

Default New track?

does anyone have any info about this new track that is opening. I just got my kid into the hobby and I would like to know if he is still going to have a place to race/ practice. Sad to see this track close. Don was always so helpful. What happened.

What happened? Well, depends on who you ask. The stories run the full gambit.

If you believe what you read on facebook, it's at least a few months before it opens. And those who know are not saying what, where, or when.

If you want to stay in the hobby, there is an on road track in New Rochelle called 360. You can't use what you have now, but at least it's a track, and a really good one too.

If you are willing to travel there are other options. I've been going to Cruzin RC, Hobby Hangout, RC Madness, and T&T Hobbies. About 1.5 to 2 hour drive from Queens. Sucks but at least it's something...

Totally agree. 360V2 is fantastic. It's a world class track... I got into on-road scene because of this track. Xray T4 are popular but you can go on budget and still be competitive. 3 Racing Sakura XI and Xpress XQ1S are 2 very very good budget friendly touring car.

At 360 you're also racing against some of the best drivers in the business. If you can keep up with them, you're doing something.
