Announcement: new dedicated dNaNo area coming soon

Just wanted to let everyone know that we are in the progress of creating a dedicated dNaNo race track/area at the shop.

Features will include a 10' x 16' raised track and dedicated pit space.

We will feature the Kyosho IC Tag lap counting system (which uses the existing transponder on the bottom of your dNaNo) along with the Zround lap counting software (which we also use for Mini-Z).

Pics and other details will be posted later.

Track has arrived from RealTracks/ Table almost finished

The space maybe ready for racing tonight. Still need to mount hardware on the wall, i.e. speaker mounts, LCD monitor mount, laptop holder mount, etc... along with put 1 more coat of paint on the raised table which will house the track.

I will try to have pics posted soon.

Dedicated area almost ready- pic attached

Good news, we're almost ready. Still waiting for our backorder speakers to come in and larger LCD to arrive. Still need to finish doing the rail system and then all should be ready. Pic is attached for reference. Area is 10' x 16'.

For our surface testing, we found we had to clean the track first using simple green and then the stock tires worked like a charm as well as PN 8 deg rear and PN 35 deg fronts. Still need to test various option parts and atomic tires.

Hey D,

Good to hear from you, well you know what I meant.

For sure, I was planning on holding our Cdn PN Regional late August, early Sept. Maybe you guys could come for that? Mind you, I'd still like hang on a non-serious race day too!

Feel free to shoot me an email to discuss options.

Cheers!
