Wow that track looks amazing. Are there organized races? I don't live close enough to be a full member but my girlfriend's parents live 5 miles from the track.

Nope, no timing system, just run for fun which is what the club is really all about. We do occasionally do bracket style monster jam races in the basher area but that's about it. Sometimes we'll run a marshall appreciation race or last man standing race for fun.

Come on out I'm sure it'll be a blast!

That sounds great, actually. I think I'll be out there in the middle of June. Can't wait to try it out. I'll bring my buggy and short course. Can I run my ebuggy?

buggy is fine as long as it's 10th scale or less and electric only.

We did some final track prep and ran the off road track a bit today. I really like the new layout and Calibers are the tire of choice.

6 more days until Open House

Looking for something to do this weekend? Check out Backhills RC Club Open House this Saturday. We have a 1/10th scale off road dirt track with a brand new layout. Tons of updates to our crawler course and a basher area w/ lots of jumps to be your bash on. Did I mention that it's FREE!
