Default RC Fun Park - Hobby Shop / Tracks

I haven't seen anything mentioned about them on here so i started this thread.

Note: I'm just a local that races and shops here. I'm in no way affiliated with RC Fun Park.

RC Fun Park
Location: 12990 State Rd. 23 Granger, IN 46530
Phone: 574-217-7715
Website: http://www.rcfunpark.com/
Directions / Map

Tracks:
Outdoor Off Road 1/10th scale.
Outdoor Asphalt on road.
Indoor Off road 1/10th scale and possibly E-buggy (Under Construction)
Indoor Small Carpet Oval.

They're currently in the works of a indoor off road clay track with pit area. I'm very excited for this as well as most of their current regulars.
the owners are very nice and willing to help any way they can. the hobby shop is pretty well stocked with Team Assosiated and losi parts, as well as wheels and tires by the majority of major brands.




When thier Indoor is open i will update this with the scheduled.

The new indoor facility is going to be awesome! As said the owners are excellent people and spending the money to put a very nice indoor offroad facility which this area needed badly IMO. Lots of pictures and info on there Face book page to anyone interested. Can't wait!

Just a bit of an update on the indoor off road track. The building seems to be around 75% completed. They have brought in clay and layed a 12" clay base. still need to put in jumps and lay tubes down. The building doesn't have exterior walls and i dont know when it will. From the sound of things there wont be walls this winter, so i guess will have to wait till spring befor it will be ready. Its a bit unfortunate. i was really hoping to have a place to race at this winter without driving 2hrs to do so. But who knows maybe they will put up exterior walls sooner.

Hoping to run E buggy in there as well, that is the plan but have to see how things go. Still lots of work to do there, I don't see any racing going on until spring or after.

Its going to be a sweet set up, lots of new people starting to lurk around the place as well so think there is a ton of interest for a nice indoor setup in the area. Will definitely be nice to be able to have practice and racing that isnt dependent on the weather.

I was there yesterday. It was worth the long drive. Great place and helpful fellow competitors.

Thanks to Dan for telling me about this place and putting up with my dumb questions, and The Don for helping me out with my SC10 setup.

For those that haven't been to the track, it's WAY in behind the McDonalds and Martins grocery store. I had a heck of a time finding it my first time there.

And is it the start of the new season yet?????? Upgrades are OTW and I am ready to go!

They had to fix a few things and clear with the building inspector/fire marshal.
