Steel City Hobbies teams up with the Steelers on the Kids Zone. – SCH on location for television show

Steel City Hobbies teams up with the Pittsburgh Steelers on the Kids Zone.

Steel City Hobbies appeared on The Kids Zone television show with their radio controlled cars. The show is to air early in December four times between the networks CBS, ESPN2 and UPN19 all local to the greater Pittsburgh PA area.

“These cars are awesome” said more than just a few kids. Even First Round Draft Pick Troy Polamalu agrees. The kids had several “stations” to complete as a team, where they would be scored on their performance and try to out score the other team. When it came to the Radio Control Car Race, it was neck and neck. The cars sure provided excellent entertainment for the 200+ size crowd as everyone was cheering for their favorite car! Two cars would line up to race down a 30′ strip, do a U-Turn around some cones to head back to the finish line.

R/C Racers / Players on hand were Alonzo Jackson, Brian St. Pierre, and Troy Polamalu.

Alonzo and Troy were very excited driving the Team Associated RC4 Sedan.

AMB Timing System hits Steel City Hobbies in MD. – AMB Timing system will debut Friday Evening

Steel City Hobbies presents the latest AMBrc system at all SCH tracks.

Steel City Hobbies is no stranger to the new electronic computer scoring system. This system enables more racers to compete at one time and receive accurate lap times. Currently, stats from the race have been posted, but now we can post accurate lap time results and individual statistics so racers dial in their R/C Cars to receive peak performance. Racers who already own their own personal transponders can also benefit from this system as well. Steel City Hobbies sells personal transponders to anyone who wants to spend somewhere in the $80.00 range.

Contact the store if you wish to purchase a personal transponder which can be read by any AMBrc digital system. This enables you to track all your moves, even in practice!
