Default Back Yard Track in Central PA.

Hey guys whats up! My name is Cody and I got a Traxxas Slash 4x4. I also got a few tracks you guys might want to see. I came here trying to get feed back on my tracks and see if people would even want to drive them.I also have another track that is in the making for 1:10 and up! These tracks pictured are mostly 1:10 and smaller scales. I do not have the fancy eqiupment or anything this was all made with a shovel and wheelboro. I also do not have a drivers stand or pit area as it is only me and 2 other guys that drive these track on a daily basis. I have a youtube with some go pro laps on it too. But let me know what you guys think. Also the track is called DT Speedpark!

Yes interested in how you define Central PA as I have seen Lancaster and York called Central PA and I laugh.

Conceptually I like it but the lanes are too narrow if you want to have racing.

Im located right outside of Harrisburg in Carlisle. I really dont know how to define central PA either lol. But thanks for the feed back. I figured it would be to narrow for some people. I only allow 4 man Main events on it right now. We have not had more than 5 people on it and that is the most i will allow it gets to crazy lol. I pretty much use this as a test track you can say haha it really test your skills. I dont really have any plans with having organized races, I just wanted to know if people would be interested in just coming out and driving it lol. I have a few more updates! I will post pics later. I also am building a 3rd track that is a ton wider so I hope this rain stops and I can get to finish it up!!

The offroad ones looks pretty fun. A very nice place for you to mess around at thats for sure. Looks like with a few guys and more help you could really make them even nicer than you already have them. Look really nice for the 4x4 Slash type trucks.

haha thanks man! Yea I got lucky with my neighbors lol but I am taking part of my motocross track to make a 3rd rc track lol. It has a lot of elevation for an rc track and the jumps are decent size. It just sucks I dont have a driver stand for any of the tracks and no pits for any tracks yet either. I dont know what im going to do lol.

Thanks man!! It looks like im getting more intrest from people I will have to try and setup a free ride day for people to come check it out. I want to do that soon but the weather is not helping with the rain we got 2 days ago my tracks are still so mucky. I might be able to make it happen but if not I will def have one in the spring time.

That looks familiar...is that by Spring Road/Wertzville Road or is that out by Rt 74...or somewhere else. Perhaps that barn looks similar to ones I've seen along those roads and thus looks familiar.


I live in the area as well and wouldn't mind learning to drive away from a more formal track so I don't embarass myself in a race.
