I'm not sure where at folsom lake you guys have been have you been to the rattlesnake bar side of Folsom?
I think most of the spots are off the douglas blvd entrance. I think there are 3 or 4 areas the comp guys hit and 2 or 3 of them have scale areas in or around them. I've only been to oak point so far, the other is called dotons point. I think it's somewhat in the same area.

Anyone want to hit rocklin before saturday? I'm pretty much free except this afternoon. Bill sent these directions to me.

To get to the Waterfalls, I took HWY65 off of 80 heading towards Lincoln to the Senset Ave. exit. Turn right as you exit and travel about a half mile or so and the road kind of splits keep looking to the right and you will see a industral park. The falls are not working but the rocks are still there. I drove around the cornor and parked in the parking lot behind them and made my way over to them. It sounds confusing but when you see them you will figure it out. Its a nice little place to try, have Gordy show you Quarry Park. He and I tried it out one Sunday and in my opinon is 10x better than the Falls.

I'm not sure if oak point and dotons point are in reference to Folsom lake. It has been a couple years since I have been to Folsom maybe they changed the name or something because I had only heard of a few entrances I know there's a few on the elderado county side that I have never been to. The ones I know of are dillians beach which is the closest to Folsom city and then beals point which is Douglas blvd and rattlesnake bar which is near Newcastle. Are one of these the entrance you were talking about? Or is oak point and doton point areas actually on the lake off the Douglas entrance?

YES, these two areas are on the lake. Douglas Blvd dead ends at the entrance to the lake. If that's where we are going saturday we can meet at douglas and folsom auburn past the am/pm and then head in.

I wasn't saying we need to go to Folsom I was just trying to understand completely where you were talking about. Again who ever decided on where we are gonna go I'm game just let me know. If your not doing anything Thursday night you should come out to cap city and we could meet and maybe run some short course.

As far as thursday I was totally uninterested saturday night I put my spec slash up for sale yesterday Most or actually all my friends have sold their SC trucks so maybe that's why I just couldn't get into it and I think my driving showed. Worst race since I got back into racing last year If I'm not doing anything I'll cruise by.

That's funny I said something simular to my dad on Sunday I said hmmm if I had bought this scaler before I bought my slash 4x4 I probally would have never bought the slash. But I will never sell my slash as a matter of fact I should have bought stock in traxxas right after I bought it because anyone that has driven my truck has bought one or is going to buy one lol. I think 4x4 sct is in a different ballpark than 2wd just by the way they drive. If you go out there that's cool if not I'll will most likely see you on Saturday.

I've seen some beat up as low as $55 $65 used/dirty with no tabs $75 like new with all tabs. RCT is where I get mine but I'm guessing the complete package is more than anyone will want to spend but the amb will be the last thing I sell

Date was for saturday. BUT looks like "you" guys will have to plan on where. Gordy txted me earlier saying he's got work and I just got a call to go to TX and won't be back until this time next week Oh well been off for 3 weeks I guess I should get back on the road. Should be available next saturday if anyone is game. Gordy doesn't get on here much Bill and Derek are out of town so you guys pick a place where you know and post up pics. Should be 4-6 guys showing up. I'm leaving in the morning and for some reason I can't post in "this" forum from my phone. Not sure if I'm going to bring my laptop as this trip I want to travel light

The American river we are talking about is in auburn down the canyon going towards cool. I'm not sure if I'm gonna be able to go I decided to try and mount my new bright body so I had to increase my wheelbase and I was sure I had enough driveline but I have to get a longer drive line still so much work to do before I can crawl we will se what I can get done in the next couple days someone pick a time.

Default new Folsom spot

Sorry it took so long to get the pix I had to load them from the phone to laptop. Multiple email attempts failed. This place is slightly Northeast of the Prison. It is a State park and requires the fee. Someone nearby may want to swoop in tomorrow and do a quick driveby check out to get another opinion. There is a shopping center about 2-blocks to the East in case people meet and carpool in to split the fee. TacoBell there and starbucks across the street. The park is Folsom Point-just do a search.

Bare with me if these pix don't come up, I'll try again if needed.
