The hobby shop is 2500 square feet and the track is 42 x 80. The track is made up of a high grade commercial carpet and the CRC Click-Trak Quick Connect Track Barrier System. The carpet has an amazing amount of traction with no tire sauce needed or allowed. The track has a 3 foot metal and red wood wall all the way around it with a top rail. You can stand around it or sit on a stool and watch the races. The drivers stand has a ramp and stairs making it handicap accessible and can hold up to 10 drivers. We also have 3, 46” televisions throughout the facility to view liveRC. Chassis protectors and shock towers are required.

Bad Fat Hobbies is located on the grounds of the Southern Hills Mall and on the corner of one of the busiest intersections in Sioux City. Sioux City is in northwest Iowa. The city is home to several cultural points of interest including the Sioux City Art Center, Sioux City Public Museum, LaunchPAD Children's Museum, Sergeant Floyd Monument, Sergeant Floyd River Museum and Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center. Sioux City is also home of the Hard Rock Casino, Orpheum Theatre and Tyson Event Center. Interstate 29 is a major highway that goes through Sioux City providing the surrounding areas easy access. I-29 also connects Sioux City to Omaha, NE to the South and Sioux Falls, SD to the North. Sioux City is served by Sioux Gateway Airport that offers many daily flights. You can also fly out of Omaha, NE or Sioux Falls, SD. Both are located about an hour and a half away from Sioux on I-29, North and South.

There are several close restaurants including Red Lobster which is right next door. Other restaurants include Olive Garden, Texas Roadhouse, Old Chicago, HuHot Mongolian Grill,
