Default Tracks in Michigan Please

Is there any offroad tracks near shelby township MI, besides Larrys Rc, Pheasents run, and Factory tracks. I think I saw a back yard track down on shelby road the other day but im not sure yet. All the other places are to far away.

Went to Hines Park track today and the entrances were closed. Parked in front of the blockade and ran my vehicles. Anyone know why it was blocked off? I know they raced there this past Sunday.

Heinz track officially closed! Make the trip out there just to get told by police that a petition was passed to close it and to stay off. Bummer

Anyways hope to see you and your friend(brothers? not really sure) at larrys Tuesday.

I called Wayne County Parks departement and talked to someone there about it. There is an apartment complex over the hill across the tracks. 10 people are complaining about the noise.
I started to ask questions like: Did they make any noise measurements to see if its a valid complaint? Did they try to compromise by setting times that we can run? (besides on race day) Doesn't sound like they didn't do any of that.
He just took my name and number and said he would get his supervisor to call me back to discuss further.
Give Wayne county a call and voice your opinion!

Default No off-road tracks in S.E. Michigan?

I cant believe the lack of off-road tracks around here. I have both a full size and mini Revo that I wanna actually drive somewhere beside the damn parking lot. I remember awhile back Freedom Hill used to have a BMX track that all the RC guys used to love, but thats been gone for many years. I live near Larry's RC but I want a BIG dirt track. I dont know what to do anymore.
