Default HUGE PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT

With the help of Discount America's Ryan Mellenberger I am thrilled to announce that Ryan and I (Justin Zaugg) have joined forces to bring a fully stocked on site Hobby Shop to Race Em R/C's Off-Road Track in Rockford IL. Z & M Hobbies is HERE. Ryan and I have spent the last few months finalizing the details and putting together a program that we felt could make the goals we have for this partnership a reality. Z & M Hobbies is here.

Z & M HOBBIES has purchased a 16ft Enclosed Trailer to house all of the parts and accessories. Our #1 goal is to provide you, the racer with the respect and service you expect and deserve. Z &M HOBBIES will stock a variety of parts and accessories for the most commonly run RC vehicles in the industry and at Race'em RC.

Z & M Hobbies and Race'em RC have a goal of opening a state of the art, nationally recognized Indoor RC Track right here in the Rockford Area. Complete with hobby shop, Concession / Restaurant area and a fun family friendly atmosphere. Ryan and I are working extra hard to make that goal a reality.

Most of you have dedicated yourself to this club and this Hobby and deserve to be treated with the same dedication from where you buy your parts and accessories. We at Z & M Hobbies promise to dedicate ourselves to providing the best service and parts availability in the state line Baring any unforeseen delays Z & M Hobbies will have everything ready by season opener May 5th. Our entire Inventory will be available online through Race Em R/C's Website. The ability to add items to a shopping cart on Friday and have the parts ready and waiting for you Sunday Morning will be a great convenience to all our racers.




Spread the word!

We all have dreams.. We all have goals.. But the big thing is are they realistic.. lol.. It all really depends on how this goes.. I see it getting really big, kind of fast. My dream is by next fall. But i know that is quite a ways away.. But lets just take it one day at a time and see how things go.

As far as mugen parts.. Our main goal right now is to make sure we take care of what is popular at the track. Yes, we will carry some un usual stuff. But i can tell you right now. There will not be much Nitro stuff to start. Once we go to a store front everything will expand to a full on hobbyshop. But as for now. We need a stepping stone.

I remember a few years back when you announced that you were looking for land to build a track. After a couple different places fell through, there were a few naysayers on this message board that said you were never going to get anything off the ground. We met up, had a car wash, raised a few bucks and had a great time. Soon after, you announced that you finally found a place to call home and look at what we have now....One of the best outdoor tracks in the area! Keep chasing that dream and keep up the great work!!

This will be great having parts available on-site. I can't count how many times I left practice early due to breakages.

Will we be able to special order parts that are not in stock and get free shipping like what's-it's-place?? lol

2013 will be the year RACE'EM establishes itself as the leader in RC racing facilities. With the addition of Z & M Hobbies Race'em is becoming a self sustaining Racing facility capable of hosting National Events.. Future growth depends on how well we support Z & M and Race'em..

Most part orders will be filled in a Day or 2. We are set up with most suppliers in the RC industry. So there shouldn't be any shipping costs to you. Maybe just a extra Tip!! haha..

Just because its a trailer, does not mean I can not sell parts during the week.. I am located on the Southern side of Rockford (Alpine & Broadway). We have no issues with people coming here to get parts. We will get all the details worked out as we go. We are working on the Point of Sale system now.. Which will have our full inventory and lets us go online with it.
