702 RC Raceway Track News: Week of April 26 to April 30

Last weekend was a great time with Tamiya Championship Series at “Da 702”!  One of the favorite classes that people were really interested in was the Euro Semi-Truck.  This class is popular at a lot of other tracks and seeing them in person had people wanting one.  This class was so fun to watch, that we had a few orders put in for the Tamiya kit Saturday, so we have a few kits coming in Wednesday, April 26.  PLEASE NOTE: This is a bone stock class, so please read the rules BEFORE you buy a kit.  We will not allow any changes.
