    Greenwood Bashplex

    Talked my buddy shawn into picking up an rc. He works at a cemetery near my house. There is a big block of land at the back of the property that is not used. He has access to a bunch of heavy equipment to move some dirt around, so were gonna put in a bash park!

    There is also a hidden little "rest area", with power for our chargers out back to relax, cook up some food over a fire and have a cold beverage. Forgot to take pics of the leisure area , but will next time I am there


    Here are some pics of the huge area we have to play with. I will try to post pics and vids as we get it together:

    That looks pretty sweet. Should make for some great times. Whenever my buddies and I go or just with the kids, we take our portable grills. Keep us posted...

    Right now there are many sections to play in. No real method to the madness, just a bunch of piles of clay, topsoil, and a backhoe... There are plans for a track, but until we have a drivers stand, its just sections to play in 8)

    No, but he has worked there for 15 yrs. We can do anything really, but could show up one day to find that a dump truck or backhoe was driven through our areas. Then we will have to just repair it.

    We made a track today, but I did not vid it. Another guy did on his phone, and it turned out exceptionally well. He said he will have to send it to me. There are a couple of bad words that I need to cut out, but have no idea how to do that. As soon as I can get the vid up to snuff I will post it.

    Did not get that file yet, but did get a cool little tool to cut and splice parts together. I made a compilation of all the vids I took, but the audio is off. Will post it as soon as I upload to you tube

    Had a great bash today, and my bud got some good footage. He will give me the files tomorrow.

    Anyway, Sean wants to make the jumps much bigger. This is gonna get better....

    That looks like a lot of fun.

    I wish I had a big area like that to play around with.

    It'll be cool watching that track transform as time goes on into a full on Raceway.

    The jumps are gonna get bigger 8)
    Sean is a newb at track building, but he has done a killer job so far.
    The track is not gonna be developed into a real race facility... No lap system or anything, but Sean has some big plans for improving the quality of the track. He found some clean clay on the property(the clay in the trip/double is very rocky), but he has to wait for a work related reason to dig it up. Once he does though, he is gonna add it to the surface with the intent of eventually having a nice smooth clay surface for the entire lap. A couple of areas are starting to get a little groove goin 8)

    The business owner stopped down the other day while we were running, I put my truck down, took a run at a new jump that crosses the trip/double, and proceeded to downside the side of the trip/double with a perfect backflip 5 feet in front of him. He had a smile as big as Texas on his face, and a twinkle in his eye... I think he wants an rc haha. After finding the place I have been looking for... well... forever, its cool to know that he approves of what we are doing. As this was getting started, I was worried that something was gonna go wrong, but its all good.

    If anyone ever wants to join us on a Saturday, 'round 3 or 4pm, pm me. I will have to approve a visit thru Sean, but as long as we don't have too many people already lined up, it will be cool.

    I figured haha. I just meant a raceway quality track.

    I know how it goes. I started a small, simple track beside my house. About a month and a half later it looked totally different.

    There will always be improvements and changes until it is just right. And when you think it's good enough, another change will be needed.

    You got a lot of room to work with so there will be lots of fun to be had at the Bashplex.

    Thanks man, I have been in a rut for the last year, bashing alone, and I then found someone I could turn into an rcnut to bash with. Turned out he has some unbelievable resources, and the drive and experience to use them for our enjoyment. These are good times for me 8)

    Just went thru and watched all the vids again. Pete L is the best camera guy ever. He is the only guy that will risk life and limb to get cool "in your face" type shots lol... Wish I had the resources to film this stuff better. Also noticed how far this place has come since the first vid. Sean and Pete have done an incredible job transferring the entire main area from topsoil, weeds and junk into a smooth, clean clay bashing wonderland. I would like to thank everyone involved.

    It rained in the morning, then dried out, then rained again right as we started. The traction was amazing, but so was the clay stuck to the trucks lol. The peperoni rolls, subs, and beverages were delicious. Thanks a ton Denny!

    Giz, Even though the weather was not the best, it was still a good time!!! Glad you enjoyed the tailgate.
    I am not sure what is worse, getting the clay cleaned off my Savage and Buggy or my shoes. That stuff really sticks.

    So, after getting rained out yesterday, seems today we will have some friends showing up. Sean, Pete, Pete, Denny and his buds, a new guy Jerry. I was just informed that there is a new feature that Sean added... Its called "the mountain". I cant wait!

    Jerry contacted me by pm here, but he has not posted in the forum yet. Hope his first post is about the plex 8)

    Had a good bash today. Broken trucks a plenty. The 2 pede 4x4s and Kookies race buggy came through unscathed. Got some good footage. Jerry (Old Metal Head)was pounding his pede 4x4 and I got a real nice vid of his truck. Will post a vid or 2 have a lot to sort out. I love this place 8)

    It was a beautiful day for rolling our trucks in the dirt. The track was nice and I abused my stampede more than I ever have.

    Rich got me straightened out as well. Seems I've been running in training mode since I got my stampede (newbie me). Fast is fun!

    I mistakenly told my wife I'd be gone for about an hour. It turned out to be more like several.

    Thanks Rich for hooking me up.

    You went from training mode to landing a perfect backflip lol... And its on vid!

    Hope she was not too upset that we kidnapped you

    And here's your "10 min after leaving training mode" backflip. Classic...
