Headed to the track if anyone is interested. There's only one wet spot that can be driven around. I'll be there at 6:00.

Great time tonight, thanks! Can't wait to see the video where you almost broke my nose with your truck!! :)
We need to get 2+ more Slashes out there to race. They're prefect for that track!

Sounds like this track is right around the corner from my shop. We are located on north pearl st. I would like to get over and check it out some night. I have both a 2wd and a 4wd slash.

All,
Jrich4x4 and I are going out the the RC park Saturday, June 12th at 10:00ish if anyone is interested. Bring whatever vehicles you own and have some fun on the track, rock crawling, the jump or the hill climb. Bring your charger. If you're lost, give me a call at 573-301-4951.
Rock crawlers, you won't be disappointed!

Here are a few photos of the park. The rock crawling area photos show the quality of the area well. There's more too it than what's in the photos. The track photos really don't show well. As many people have said, photos don't do it justice. I'll assume that the right side of my photos will be cut off, as all of the other photos are. I'll have to take care of that problem. The jump over is a pretty cool part of the track. So far, only one major in air collision! (on my truck) Can't wait to see more! That's AtomicRC in the air in the last photo.

You must have a new BlackBerry with an 8MP lens then.

Laughing

Great Shots Ross!

FYI, I blew my truck up last night... Again!

The ESC caught on Fire~! Smoking like crazy!

Calling Traxxas today, no idea why, it was brand new. FYI- and those videos were shot with the old ESC.

thats the second ESC in 2 weeks!

If I can get a new ESC!

My truck caught on fire last night in a parking lot...

I was only doing like 70-80MPH, then it just started bellowing smoke from under the body... Thats what I get for running a 5000 mAh 40C 3S LiPo!!!!

I have smoked 2 ESC's in 2 weeks. I dont have $140.00 for another right now... so Im screwed until I get paid next Friday!

I was planning on running all weekend if it was nice~!

I had an extra motor and esc, like I said, i burnt up 2 ESC's in the last 2 weeks!

Traxxas better hook it up... If they dont, I am sure George will,.

If I dont have a truck to drive, I probably wont be down there...
