    got to visit there last weekend the day before turkey leg at jcg. that's a first class facility down there, nice pits, nice well stocked hobby shop, helpful and courteous staff in the hobby shop. plus it's easy to get to and has plenty of parking.
    about the track...... hmmmm, what can i say? hated the elevation of the track, only two sets of stairs to access the track and half the time you had to push your way through people standing on the stairs driving. due to the elevation you either had to drive from the drivers stand, or take your life in your hands and stand on a six inch wide wall or it was impossible to see all areas of the track. (the entire track is about 4 ft above floor level) none of that matters on race day when you have corner marshalls but for practice it made crashes a serious pain..... any crash is pretty much a guaranteed flame-out because it took so long to get to your car. they won't allow driving from the track, which would go a long way helping all these problems.
    aggravating all the above problems was a technical layout with lots of big air. the general consensus among the group i was with was one word- brutal. everybody there with us that day suffered breakage due to the large jumps. with track access so difficult, everybody agreed the the layout should be toned down somewhat. it was understandable the driving from the track is not permitted, with all the big air, violent crashes, somebody would get hurt eventually.
    because of all the above, this facility would be a good place to go race, but i'll pass when it comes to somewhere to go practice. corner marshalls are a requirement at this track, otherwise it's one big hassle....

    Glad I'm not the only one to think that, arbcj! It's a parts-eater for sure!

    Losi, it's not so much the track...I liked the previous layout much better. My biggest problem now is the back jumps being so close to the wall and ending where that wall narrows. For someone not familiar with the track, that back wall is a front-end buster for sure.

    i wouldn't go so far to say i didn't like the track, i'd race there for sure. throw in some corner marshalls and most everything i mentioned as being a problem goes away. it's just a hassle to practice.
    i was thinking about it some last night laying in bed. if they could put a spot in the track area where you could stand and drive that would be a huge improvement. maybe surround the spot with haybales or something. another possibility would be to convert the pit lane to use for drivers while practicing. you really only need the pit lane on race day. block each end with some haybales and you're set.
    another idea i had might be a bit cost and labor intensive but some stairs from the driver's stand to the track would be nice as well.

    Indy's open and going strong, ARBJC. It's Speed R/C that's gone belly-up.

    The races Saturday night at Indy were well run and pretty good. Not too many entered the truggy class, but there were several buggies.

    the track(s) that you ask about that we were discussing are all in dallas/ ft worth. i see you are in houston so maybe this link will point you towards something in your area.

    Ya i kno wits so anoyying, im just turned 13 and the guys at hobbytown give me no attention becasue they want the higher paying customors and they lie to me, i called and asked if they a revo 2.5, they said they did i went their and they forgot that they ran out like 3 monthes ago, and tried to sellme other cars. It made me so mad, also i have to compliment mikes hobby shop in carrolton,Texas www.Mikeshobbyshop.com. They treat everyone equel and have great customer service and very nice employes. They will even give me their full attention even if im in there just looking at all the cool stuff, they will tell me about it all.

    I’m in south Houston area and live on an 11acre farm that has a hilly pasture that I drive on. I have an e-max. I have a friend with a 3.3 T-max and we are both 15.
    I have a huge compost pile that is covered in leaves. Its fun to practice big jumps and if I land wrong the car won’t get hurt because the leaves are like 2 feet deep and the leaves are a good cushion. It’s like jumping into a foam pit. I’m fairly new to RC but its fun.
    later.

    Ok, "hypothetically" speaking. If there were a raceway that offered 3 different tracks in north Galveston county, would you pay a small fee to go??

    A bunch of people bash at a BMX park in Sugarland, but I haven't been out there yet. I heard Sundays are good. There is also a track in Porter, near New Caney off 59. The track there is nice and covered, but it is really hard, compacted dirt and tends to crack parts on impact.

    I would like to hear some other bashing places too, getting tired of the street and ditch...
