Thumbs up Help the dig

I'll be there tomorrow afternoon if anyone wants to join. Bringing shovel!
Keep it clean (meaning NO TRASH!) or we'll have legal issues.
Thanks J for the jumpstart.

I have an emaxx, not an 8th. I used 40 series chevron pattern tyres and they worked fine but I also have a set of paddles that I'm going to try out next time. Considering the mushy terrain, I would suggest paddles but then again I have a stock 4x4 Emaxx (which will be upgraded to monster mamba as soon as I burn the stock motors up!).

Guys,

I know some of the turns are sandy, when u guys come out please spread some of the darker soil from the gully west of the track and pack it down. I did that for hours on tues to get the tack suited for my losi 8 buggy. Shovels are in surrounding bushes. As well as a rake.

Check out SOCAL-RCdotcom for those who are located in San Diego and the SOCAL area, great group of guys, we also have members who have tracks in their own backyards we get together at.

It's there, but it's not much of a track imo. There are a ton of jumps out there, and an oval track, which is not very well definied. It's definitely still fun though!

http://www.socal-rc.com/forum/ This may be a no-no, but check out the "bashing spots" map on our forum. There are pretty detailed directions there. I found it the first time I went using that! Good luck
