Default Now Open!

We've finished the first phase of our rock crawling area we affectionatly refer to as the Quarry. I'll say that as a store owner, I am very new to rock crawling and this is a new venture for us. Daniel or I will post some pictures so you can see what we've done so far (The course is not competition ready). We are planning additional obsticals and want to make the course challenging and fun. In the mean time, The Quarry is open for some free crawling through the end of July. Please come with charged batteries as AC outlets for battery chargers are not (yet) available. This is a work in progress and we welcome your opinions and advice on how we can improve and make the The Quarry better.

Our store hours are

10 - 8 Mon - Fri
10 - 6 Sat
Closed - Sun

Many thanks,
Jack Frost
Owner
HobbyTown, Lake Ridge

Jack, looks like I'll be up there tomorrow first thing picking up a few stuff for the XRay, if you don't mind, I'll snap a few photos of the course and post them up.

Guess you're gonna have to start opening up for some Sunday crawling!!!

Talked to Jack yesterday, great guy...even let me take his crawler for a spin. Its a tight course, definately need a low COG for the climbs if you plan on getting creative with the routes. The ramps are adjustable for angle of attack and you definately have the option of falling off the course. Looks great, can't wait to get my Super up and running and take it for a spin.

I am sure I could get a few of my guys to make a road trip if you guys ever decide to have a big event. We love road trips.

I stopped by the shop today on my lunch break. The course looked pretty sweet. I might come out on Sunday to try it out.
