There was an awesome on-road indoor track in New Haven not all that long ago. First, it was paved (ran nitro and electric) and then switched to carpet in an effort to save the business. The place eventually closed even when on-road was more popular. I used to go there all the time. Best and worse part: I never had to worry about the crowds.

There's a paved on-road track in Bridgeport (or that general area). I have never seen another person there.

Control Freakz ... awesome on-road facility. Closed.

I love on-road as much as the next guy, but I wouldn't personally invest a dime in an on-road facility.

If you want to do this for real decide what your point(s) of difference is(are).

I don't know you or how close to reality this idea is, but I'd suggest using the large track area to create a short course friendly track (big wide lanes and low long jumps). Make a track for the Slash crowd; the 1/8-scale electric guys will run on it just fine. And, I'd build the small track area into a bashing fun zone with just-for-fun obstacles such as a back flip ramp, crush cars, wall ride, big air jumps, sand pit, etc. Give the Stampede, E-Savage, Monster jam guys a place to run.
Ya i hear ya man. I will not be opening up the onroad track as of now then. My dad and i are still currently trying to see how many people would actually come because we dont want to open and shut down. Please spread the word.

I dont really know about the bashing area. I was thinking something like motorama, like the size of the 1/10 track and the 1/8 track this past February.

Ok, I think Gio should borrow a bunch of $$ and build this thing.

I think Gio should do this! Hey if it works put for him I'm willing to open a track! Bigger though and with indoor and outdoor on road along with an outdoor 1/8 and a jumbo 1/8-1/10 indoor for electric only! Actually I'm planning of opening one mid to late febuary of 2013

Talk to all the super rich track owners where you race and i'm sure they will tell you what a lucrative business rc racing is Do yourself a favor and don't count on any of the rc crowd for anything. One bad lay out or not perfect dirt is all it takes to have an empty building. The hobby shop end of it is even worse.


Just my opinion

Take that money you want to spend on the track and save it for collage, buy yourself a home, move right between OCRC and WCraceway, buy yourself a Lamborgini, buy hookers - all of those are better things to spend money on than a track.

+1 I like marks thinking!!! I would never open a track just kidding about the post above, just trying to steer Gio away buy making him think I'm opening a bigger one next to his! I'm sure any of us woul do what mark just said if we have money like Gio!! It's up to you gio but think first and don't make a stupid move! And remember it won't be a supper premier track like OCRC or WCRC of the east cost not even close!

One can actually buy hookers? I thought it was a rental basis.

If you plan on running the race program and maintaining the track, I predict you will do very little racing.
