Default New in the US - track in Manhattan, NY

Hi,

In May i'll leave Portugal to spend the next 3 years in NY (Manhattan). Can anyone help me tracking a track for a 1/10 electric on-road (outdoor or indoor)?

Thanks for all.

See you in The Big Apple!

There are none on the island for Manhattan, I'm not sure if there are any in NYC. 360 Speedway is out on Long Island, about 40 minutes from the city. It is a world class facility. Check it out if you can, www.360speedway.com

There is an outdoor nitro on-road track in Brooklyn at Floyd Bennett Field. Maybe that is what you are thinking of.

That's really bad luck, because i live in the midle of 2 tracks, just 6 miles from my home:

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=p...0.005&t=h&z=18 CRO, in Sintra

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=p...0.005&t=h&z=18 CRAP in Lisbon

I can't find the track in Brooklyn trough Googlemaps...i see the Bennet Field, but not the track.

Thanks for all.
