Smile RC bashing Edison NJ area

I have a slash 4x4. I usually take it to different baseball fields in Edison/Metuchen area.
Looking for some fellow RC enthusiasts to run together some time.
Should be fun.

Thanks,
Sunny

Hey, i'm from Edison right off of Highland Park. I'm 29 and getting back into the hobby from about 10 years ago. Here is a video of my Losi I made about a month ago.

Let me know if you want to run sometime.

Thanks,

I would be willing to meet up sometime. I'm from Edison so we are about an hour away. Maybe settle on a middle location or something. Just an idea.

This weekend I have to work but next weekend (Oct 8-9)is pretty good for me. Maybe even one day during the week if its not too much trouble. Those places look good. I do know two locations that have jumps built but they are both down by me in the Edison area. Its basically a bike trail, not sure if that interests you.

Just an update. We were able to meet up on Oct. 9th for about a 3 hours bash session. The location is in Piscataway NJ and has jumps. Here is a couple clips from that day if anyone else is interested.

Revo and Losi XX:
