    I like a king, hillclimb or a kingleman. Some speed but also some driving. I don't like kings which are punch bowls. Something where you could be competative without having the best motor there!

    Have you ever raced on what they call a Mini King or a Prince ?
    Its like a PaperClip with a little Finger turn or like a baby King....Now I'm not talking about a 90 Black. Its more like racing on king than racing on a black...Its just that the laps go very very fast!! . Most are about 135' and are very fast paced racing. I love them!! If anyone has any photos of any ...please post them....the Mini King tracks are some what a rarity!!

    I personally like a track that i have to drive. I like the challenge of it. I do like running on a hillclimb, but i like our korkscrew. It is very challenging, and very fun

    Hi,
    If I had to pick. Paperclip first then a King with about 5 degrees of banking in the donut and last U.K. Black.

    First- UK Black: challenging and close racing.
    Second: Orange- the only small track suited to either wing or scale racing.

    Kingleman - high speed 155ft but semi flat coners that take some driving. Excellent for both wing or scale. Most races were decided on by the section not laps.... I actually lost one race by 1 inch due to the coast when the power turned off. I would put a pic but not sure how to.

    I like kings and kinglemans and hillclimbs. Don't see many kinglemans around much anymore.

    The Purple Angel in Citrus Heights

    My favorite track on the NorCal circuit. Unlike any other track you ever raced on. Think of it as a highly technical flat track with a tall climbing bank as the lead on.

    What made this track awesome was the infield...a set of flat, high speed left and right hand sweepers that just seemed to flow together. It was as much a ball to drive with Nascars and trucks as it was with GTP12s.

    You'd be working the car so hard through the corners that it felt as if you were working the steering as much as the throttle - the closest thing to RC car racing I've ever felt with slot cars.
