New track

(reprinted from http://rar-studios-rc.tumblr.com/)

For many years the area where i used to live has been lacking in RC tracks and stores for that matter. There were a few stores but they usually didn’t last very long. There was an Allied Hobbies at the Oxford Valley Mall for decades, but they closed a few years ago also.

When I was a kid, the owner of the Allied Hobbies used to run electric cars around the mall. It was pretty funny.

But anyway, there is a new store and track that has opened up. It is in a perfect location, right at 95 and business Rte 1 in Langhorne, Pa. It is only about 5 miles from the turnpike, a perfect location!

It is called Action Hobbies.

I found out about them on Trinity, here is the link for that. Trinity Action Hobbies

According to the Trinity thread they are having their first race on June 14. It is going to be a trophy race.

The forum on their web page doesn’t seem to work, or it just won’t work for me, I don’t know. Since that weekend is not a Hobbytown race, I am hoping to make it down there.

Plus it is literally fifteen minutes from where my nephew lives, so he can have a closer place to race!

May 24 Hobbytown Cash Race

A very good race day!
There was a good turn out to the first cash race at Hobbytown in Reading. It could have been better except for Hobby Hut. With one week notice they scheduled their cash race for the same day as Hobbytown. This is not uncommon for Hobby Hut, they have scheduled races with little notice. Here is why I think this is kind of shitty. Hobby Hut race on Sunday, yet they schedule this race for Saturday. And last year they did this same thing to other tracks.

But enough about the idiots at Hobby Hut.

The day was great as far as I am concerned! Racing started at 11am and ended around 5pm! There was good racing all day, conditions were great. And a big, huge thanks to Larry, Jack and Bob for all of their hard work getting the track ready! They worked all week to fix up the track. A big new addition was the porta-pot. So no more walking down to the store. And I am sure the store is happy about dirt and stuff being tracked through the store.

And on a personal note, my nephew raced his buggy for the first time. He had a great time and did far better than I expected, to be honest. And besides the reciever battery pack problem, it was a worry free race! And thanks to Bob and Aaron and everyone else for the help! Also a huge thanks to Steve, Tina, Kijana and all the other racers for making it out to the race.

Here is a the link for the photos.

Next DVD project!

This past weekend was the big Meltdown race at Nuclear RC in Parkton Maryland.
I had a great time, did a lot of walking up and down that damn hill! But I was the one who set up nearly as far away as is possible, so I have no one to blame but me.
Anyway, I got tons of footage from the race and I think a DVD is called for.
Here are the photos from the event.

APRIL 26 NUCLEAR RC

I will be starting the editing on Monday, and I am shooting for a two week turn around and have it off to be duplicated. I had quite a few people tell me they would like a copy.
As far as pricing, it is looking like it will be $15, and I will try to sell as many as I can directly. Which means I have to get my PayPal account straightened out, damn!
But, I will also have copies with me everywhere, and I will post my schedule on my other web page, RAR STUDIOS

Hobbytown track work, March 25


Here is a panorama, it is not the best work I have done, but it is a little difficult the way the track is laid out. The tractor was a big help. A few more hours and the track will be ready.
