I really don't care what it looks like, as long as I can run it at my local Mini-Z track. And I'm guessing it will have the built-in transponder system like the dNanos.

That's the video I referenced with the nice locking blocks for the track, it's on the Kyosho site in their blog (if memory is correct).

The Track is made by RCP:

Not cheap, but good quality.

Thanks!

Not that expensive at all, for the price of a pro level bike you can build a pretty nice track. Size is my only concern as I don't have the experience to know. Kyosho is mentioned as the Japan dealer but they flip the panels upside down.

RCP tracks are ground on one side and smooth on the other. The ground side is usually used for Mini-Z racing.

Here is a vid from my local Mini-Z track, which is a typical medium size track. The lanes are 2' wide. We race up to 8 cars at a time, which can get crowded, but is still fun, as clean passing is challenging.

BrookerTrackerMiniZ.mp4 (0 min 27 sec)


I'm really hoping the bike will work well in this space, like it does in the official vid. Oh, and this shop uses MyLaps transponders in the cars -- can't see how that is going to happen on the bikes.

So that must be the 30cm track option because the 50cm track is set to give 33 inches between the rails but may still be for mini-z sized machines.
