I just moved to texas/houston this week. Wondering same thing to see if this is a hobby I can get back into. Last city I lived didn't really support rc cars so got out of the hobby but if there a good track that I can run 2wd mod I'll get back into the hobby

Yep! If you're into 1/8 scale... check out Milke's or X-Treme (the only one's I knew of since I moved here).

New member here, living in Houston. I've never been to an off-road track but I'll make it out to Gulf Coast Raceway for some open practices, once I get my Kyosho 1/8th in order. I see they just recently reconfigured the covered track. Do any of the members here run there? Also, it looks like Houston Area RC (HARC) run a series of races at Gulf Coast Raceway. Any members here part of those races?

In fact, for those interested, Live RC has live video of the new configuration and open practice running for the weekend HARC series race. Looks fun, can't wait to check it out in person.

Can't say for sure but I would think you could just give them a call for more details.
