Lightbulb Off Road Scene in Vancouver, BC?

Hi there all, new to this forum, and re-entering RC stuff
I have several RC10's and 2 kids old enough to cause a little damage with the 2 stock RC10T's they have been given permission to use, until they act like idiots and reck them.

Looking for a few good tracks that we can play, anybody have a backyard track or know of the local Off Road scene?
Would really like to see some track pics in this tread if possible

Oh crap, can we do that?

OK, I know I can't but at least we can attach a file.
Hey Admin? where can we post inserted images? sorry for the Newb???
The attached Image is of the VMAR Riverside track website, fyi.

Thanks Doug for reminding me of VMAR

That is correct - the video was shot a bit earlier on when the first Test and Tune events were taking place. It's still cool though!

The vancouver scene is a joke, we have 6 major hobby shop and only 2 small track to show. We are a big enough city that we should have a huge indoor off road track by now but theres too many politics involed around here!!!

Agreed, Dave.

Methinks too many people want to 'run' things around here. I'm more likely to support a track that is dedicated to racing, instead of run by a hobby shop. The one in North Van used to be that way, but Roger from Race Tech still owned the transponders, and that's what people followed over to coquitlam when he decided to leave.

That is the first practice day for the Riverside track. I am still working on the stuff from the Sept 11th race. (I am still working on footage from the Quesnel WCORCS race too. ) As soon as I get something done I'll post it.

(I really need to Quit my job. It is interfering with my hobbies )

Thx Wintermute, I have been corrected.

I now have my T-Maxx TRX2.5 running, pretty good I think, first Nitro truck I've ever had, so will need others to judge its performance, still have an RC10GT to get running, needs starter box to go, perhaps I can show up at a track soon when somebody else has their starter box available??
Already have 2 x rc10T's and 1 x RC10B RTR, and now the T-Maxx.
If anyone has a used starter box thats willing to trade for something, let me know, I have a bunch of RC and non RC craps to barter with.
Somebody invite me to a track event!!!
