where do you guys use your onroad cars? I have an HPI RS4 3, and I haven't used it in awhile because it sucks using it by myself.

Yeah, it's kinda like a tri-oval but with some jumps and woops. Nothing organized, just some guys out for some fun. It's located rite off the Bronx River Pkwy, Gun Hill Rd. exit.

It's maintained by 2-3 guys and is clean of all rocks and pebbles. The track is dry and loomy with a banked sweeper.

Hope this helps some.

Rcburner,
I am not a big off-road fan, so I myself only pass by hear and there to shoot the breeze with friends. So I couldn't tell you how crowded it is on a regular basis.
If you take Bronx River North at exit via Gun Hill Rd. make a right off the ramp, then a right at the first block. Go down that block about 1/8th mile till you see the fork in road, stay right goto stop sign and make a right and the track is on the right. You will see a red wooden fence, walk down the stairs an presto you are there.

Wow didn't realize how many "rights" you had to make. LOL

I checked out the track last weekend. It looks good, but I didn't see anyone out there, just a bunch of little kids riding bikes. I'll check back from time to time, so I can catch some people out there. Is there any day and time that people seem to be out there more so than others?

Default Time to revive this thread

Gun Hill Road track is back and better than ever. No more is the oval with a jump or two. The truck has been enlarged, jumps added and you better bring your A-game because the truggies and buggies dominate the set. www.nitrorclabs.com is the site that details the track happenings. Bruckner will be holding some events when it gets warm.
