Default The new "GUNHILL RD RC TRACK" in "NEWYORK CITY"pics and videos.

Ok rc peeps we finally got the approval from the city to build a new track.
Keep in mind,this is a public park anyboby can come,not just for racers.

I want to give a big thanks to the people who donated there time,energy and opinons, it wasnt easy to pull this off.

The pics ,and the video of the track.....was done in 2 days.
A few pics of how it looked before,as well as video of how it was.

Rather your local or within a reasonable driving range,come by and try it out.

Here's a vid of the layout trying to be put together.

Here's some video of a couple races after we came to some type of agreement about the layout.lololololol

Let me know what you think.

I hope the local hobby shops ( Bruckner / thunder) can be more involved with this project sought of like how Brownies run a monthly race program here in Staten Island. It's a win, win for them!

Had a long talk with Bless last night about this track and the club that runs the track. IMO this is a great look for the community. A grey place for those who cannot travel upstate to the Barn/ Galli or Ct. These guys aren't looking to compete with these tracks but give local guys a place to enjoy the park and participate in their hobby they love. Id definitely like to see these plans carried out. I know things like this cost money. How can we participate?

I can see it now : Gunhill RD 1st Annual Shootout! All puns intended.

There are a lot of guys that have interesting occupations on the forum. I know there is a landscaper / construction worker amongst us. The problem is NYCRC needs the use of a bobcat to prep the track and efficiently. Anyone knows where we can acquire / rent one for a few hrs.......cheap?
