Im always on the hunt for new places to go. :geek:

There is a great spot a few miles from me which is ideal for my Traxxas UDR/Slash. Looks just like a Short course track with Jumps/Humps etc. Not too nice this time of year though.

I have a couple of local spots on Industrial estates where i run my FG/MCD Rally, including the one my office is on.

Ive approached a local Kart centre as they have a nice flat gravel area next to them which will be awesome for the Rally car.
Not sure they`ll let me drive around the track :LOL:

Even though there are a lot of parks near me, i still don`t feel comfortable running in them even if its away from people.

The most important thing I've found about running at parks is getting permission. I work for the township and I'm only allowed to run on certain fields. There are a few state game lands that have open fields I run on. Figure I have my hunting license I may as well use the land more then 3 months a year.

Im lucky enough to have the desert as my back yard...miles and miles of desert..cactus, and the occasional tumble weed drifting by slowly. Only thing I have to wory about is those small goffer things that run into these tiny holes in the ground. Theyre everywhere!!!
If your looking for a good spot with a mix of terrain/jumps. Try your local motocross park. Most have peewee (50cc-80cc) tracks nearby for the youngins..peewee track is awesome if you can catch a couple laps between sessions or on the off hours.perfect for 5th scale. Ask permission of course but most owners and dirtbike riders are cool with it long as your not tearing up the track. Helps to volunteer with track grooming every now and then too. :;

Evssv: some same lucky.. I say alot of extra maintenance. Running my buggy out in the desert does take a toll on it especially during the summer months. Not to mention the constant cleaning and filter changes after every outing. Sand gets everywhere!!
Agree.(y)..i ran my savage flux on brean beach once ......never again!:cry:!....yes it was awseome fun but not the sand everywere..:(...i would never ever take any of my 1/5th 's near sand..no chance (y)..or any of my rc's for that matter
