I have a couple but not worthy of posting. I'll post a few from Sunday. It's a pretty cool area though with plenty to do. It should be a good time!

Sorry to hear that the directions sucked. I can now see why you got lost though. There are multiple breaks in North Manning that really don't make any sense at all and should be renamed...sorry about that...

The address you would need to park near is 596 Manning Boulevard
Albany, NY 12210 according to Google and the ONLY house on the street. Their map, however, shows N. Manning, along with other sections throughout town. Do a google search for "Park Road" as it's right there too. Each road is only 1/8 mile long and will get you right to the spot.

Livingston Track

Post  BallisticBeach on Mon May 31, 2010 10:48 pm

Ok Guys,
Enigma and I went to the track today and rode. Its fun. Heres a bunch of pics of our trucks on the track... Enjoy... :-)

Also, the location is hard to find, however once you know where it is, it isnt hard at all. I dont know if I would go there by myself, as it is the woods, with no-one around and the sign says the park is open from Dawn to Dusk.

The best way to give directions is to get off I90 on the Northern Blvd exit. Turn left and go passed Memorial Hospital and go over the I90 Bridge. just after the bridge on the right hand side is a street sign that says N Manning Blvd. Turn right on this dead end street, and park near the gate. (Right next to/ Behind Livingston Middle School!) Walk down the gravel road about 150 Ft, and on the left is the track, you do need to look for it, as you will walk right passed it. Enjoy!

Here are the Photos!

Refreshments Provided.

Those are just the hours I'll be there. People can go whenever they want.

Make it every other Saturday starting this coming one and I'll be there to meet up with people. Thanks!

Yeah, I guess now that I'm getting into the scene I'd best start meeting all of you hardcore RC guys! I'm pretty sure I'll be there tomorrow. I'll have to double check my plans with my girlfriend. I don't think she was planning anything.

Post  jrich4x4 on Sat Jun 05, 2010 7:03 pm

If anyone gets a chance i'd definetly recommend heading over to the track by livingston school ! I had a blast today...there are rock crawling spots, insane hill climbs, and a huge 5-6 ft jump. The track was sick !! They have huge banks so u can carry alot of speed & a jump that launches you over other cars/trucks into the turns!!

Let me know if anyone wants directions, i'm going to head over tomorrow...

pics to follow soon !!

Yeah, it was pretty wet. If we removed a couple puddles it would have been fine but I'm sure after the storm we just got, it's a swamp. We didn't use the trucks...crawling would have been fine though.

hahahaha that was awesome !! if that doesn't prove how water proof the slash is nothing will ! CAN'T WAIT FOR THE VIDEO !!

Those shocks work good too. i just launched it off a 4 ft truck loading dock & it didn't even bottom out. I'm using 50 wgt w/ the medium springs.

Depending on the weather i'm going to try heading down to the livingston track in the a.m. around 10....
