    Traxxas new Corp Headquarters

    I understand Traxxas has begun construction of their new corporate headquaters in Dallas. Will any part of the be open for public use? Any plans for large races?

    I read something about them possibly having a showroom with all the Traxxas vehicles ever made, old and new. Like, I think maybe the prototypes!

    I work in an Architecture firm here in Texas and have access to view all of the projects going up in the state. Heres the down low.... 124000 sq ft, auditorium , museum, and plans for several tracks made special for each of their different cars, also a top of the line pro shop!!! I won't get into more details, such as what their paying for this, but I will say their not sparring any expense to make this the Vatican of RC !!!

    Yep, McKinney is the new location once completed.
    No slipper/tall gearing/power = broken parts.

    Well if they do what is posted above, that will still be pretty cool. Right now they are only about 25 minutes from where I work but the move up to McKinney would make it about 35 to 40. Any idea when all this is gonna happen?

    I live less than 1/2 mile from where they are currently breaking ground. They started building about 3 months ago on Stacy Road and SW Hwy 121 in McKinney, Tx. From what I understand, they will have retail shops and a track for every type of product they make (on road, off road and a pond for Boats), it's massive. I'm stoked! My neighbors complain about how loud my Nitro is, so their new HQ couldn't be more convenient.

    I bet it's for their drag strip and high speed runs.

    Anyone know if the headquarters is open to the general public? Do they have a track and/or a store?
