Yea ,I know what you mean ,when I first moved here ,I had no one to run with ,but then my sister & B-law started
coming to visit ,then I got them into it ,my B-law bought a used truck an I put a new engine in for it ,then my
sis bought her a used Muggy an it went wild from there every w-end ,now it is back down to nothing!....:(

That sucks mate.... I can normally convince someone to come out and play with the 1/8 scale stuff (especially if it's all my cars)but no one want to spend the cash for 1/5 scale.(and I only have one lol)

+1, irl I have no one to talk to about RC since literally no one I know has a rc of is interested in RC, so here I can talk to people, get help, brainstorm possible ideas, brag (joking! 😂) Ect. Great place with great staff 👍
There use to be a track & HS about 10 miles from me ,but from lack of business ,they were forced to shut down ,
I think a new just opened up ,they put up a web site ,I would have to go check it!

Same problem. We had 3 with in half an hour drive or so. 1 is closed 1 is now a flight only shop and the other (closest to me) had one 1/5 DBXL E for sale and they wont let 1/5ths on their track. Just 1/10. They are supposedly going to have a spec 1/8 scale class to try to get people interested in rc again but I haven't seen any updates as to what the car would be. Last time I was in the guy was telling me it had to cheap, reliable, and electric. Well see. If it amounts to anything.

Oooooo nice 👍 there's a couple tracks around me but they are all for 1/10 scale of 1/8 scale, no 1/5 👎
Years ago ,80 to early 2000 ,it use to be hot spot mecca for RC's ,now its down to nothing ,but maybe with
the 5th scale fad ,it might pick back up!
I am further north about 25 miles ,so I would have to travel a little ,but here where I am at ,the Spanish only
like soccer & corona's ,so I see whats happening ,an see what I need to run!....I seen a nice Losi 5T at the
local HS when I was getting nitro a few months back!....:love:

You need to take yours down an bully those 1/10's!....LOL
