Default Anna Jean Park in Soquel

Just found this spot yesterday, and went crawling this morning; lots of fun. Anna Jean is part of the Santa Cruz County Parks system, and is located right off of Old San Jose Road, about 0.5 miles East of the Soquel Dr./Porter St. intersection, in the town of Soquel, just South of Santa Cruz. The park is right next to Soquel high school. Drive up the entrance, crest the steep hill (baseball/soccer fields on your right), and go to the end of the parking lot. There you'll see a median strewn with rocks; that's it. It's in the middle of the parking lot, so it's best to go on weekday mornings when there are only dog-walkers and not too many cars parked around the rocks. The place fills up with athletic kids in the afternoons, weekdays and weekends.

Best for crawlers and scale; it was perfect for my CR01.

Used to have a creeper but got bored with it. Now I'm gettin back into it with an scx10. A little bit of crawling mixed with some rock racing. What part of the bay are you from. My bro and I are always lookin for the same. The both of us are addicted to rc and don't really know any1 else to share the addiction with. LOL

I hear ya man. 101 and capitol exp isnt too far from where my bro and I live. We're planning on hittin the little hammers spot once I get my scx10. Which should be today or Tuesday. He's got a brushless setup in his rig and a summit tranny. You might have seen his build thread already. Meatwad. We'll have to get together and get some triple action rock smashin. We also used to go to penetencia creek for crawlin when we both had our crawlers. Alum Rock park is also a good spot. Once we get up there I'll snap some pics and add it to this thread.

maybe next week postclanker, I too have my xr in pieces for a rebuild, and some new gears, as well as busy with fixing up my mugen. as of now, money is the only hold back for me to pull the trigger on a new set of gears, but I got a 1.9 comp runner, if I'm desperate

wow you both are near greystone? if so, your lucky, that spot is sweet, just alittle creepy, because you never know If there's a wild animal behind the bushes.

OK...Let me get a tally of the bay area crawler guys. Seems to be a lot more than I thought. Which is a good thing.

there are a lot of crawlers in the bay area, but I believe there are a lot more crawlers in the north bay, and more scalers in the south bay.

thanks for the offer postclanker, but I think id rather do the job once and get it over with since its a pain in the neck to open the diff, and then make sure you put the exact screw in the same hole, or else your gears are just asking to get chewed up.

Sounds like you're going to spend some $$$ on some RC4wd gears...I did get to change my front axel out today and replace the gears with RC4wd gears. Front gears were in great shape...all the clatter is probably coming from the rear...let me know if you change your mind MrCCrawler...I did feel the pain taking this down today...wouldn't want to make a habit of it.
Nice to see some chatter in the south bay.

looks like I needed to order some other parts to go along with this front axel/rear axel mod with the Vanquish metal tops...they don't tell ya you need to have the shorter transfer gear shaft for the rear...or use a front mount instead of a rear mount... I'm still in pieces waiting on the new parts....probably race on-road this weekend...would rather crawl...

I'll be ready next weekend 7/16-7/17
