Well I'd have to say I had a great time at Folsom Lake yesterday! Even with only 3 of us, 3 hours went by like nothing. I'm home for a while so I'm in for the next one as long as it's not sunday :ror:

Man I would but gave Gordy my only running rig to finish up the interior and Mike is working on my ftoy and I just got my honcho out of the box to put back together. I don't think I'll have it ready this week. I want to change the electronics and motor in mine to run 3s :ror:

Anyone interested in a night run over in Sonoma? It's a little ways out so I may be able to make sure I'm home that weekend if anyone else wants to go. http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/california/271085-nbrcc-jakes-performance-hobbies-flat-rock-get-together-oct-16th.html

Yeah it was nice to finally get out. Man there has to be a easier way to get pics from the phone to computer onto rcc :roll: There were some really nice hard lines which I didn't get pics of but this is a killer place for scalers "thumbsup"

I'm still pretty new to RC's in general, but I got bit by the bug hard. I'd I'm not working on the quad in the garage, then I'm " playing with my toy car" as my wife likes to say. I haven't been to any comps yet, as I'm still a little unsure of what I'm doing. I stopped by capital city rc to check out the course but I haven't had a chance to stop by fast track hobbies yet. Does anyone ever get together in or near Elk Grove, it looks like most gtg's take place near Folsom. My son and I found a cool little spot near west Stockton Blvd bordering hwy 99, big retaining rock some covered by concrete, ledges and holes, a little bit of everything. If this belongs on a different forum, let me know, just wanted to see what's out there. I run an ax10 tvp/tuber, its not a scalpers and the custom links make it a little long to be comp legal, but its fun to drive. Thanks for reading, I'll keep my eye on this thread.

A work in progress, that brushless CC motor turned out to be a very bad idea.

The almost finished product, if there is such a thing.

Hi there, Bill and Derek live in EG but I don't think they have found any place out there for scalers yet. Fast Track is moving to Rocklin, Cap city has regular comps as well as outdoor stuff in different areas. Yeah this thread is for scalers but if you just want to run and get a feel for your rig your more than welcome to run with us at folsom. If my friend comes out tomorrow I'll have her run a comp rig for her first time as it's harder to break :lmao:

I manage to break my 2.2 with ease:mrgreen:, my 7 year old boy is the resident torture tester, if it has a weak spot, he'll find it. I haven't been to Folsom lake to crawl, could I get some general directions? We have a 3 week old newborn, but the wife wouldn't mind getting out of the house for awhile, just depends on how much sleep I get tonight. If anyone I'd interested in checking out this sports in Elk grove, let me know and we can meet up or I can shoot you some directions so you can check it out yourself.

I've only been there once so not sure exactly how to get to the spot. We are meeting at douglas and folsom auburn right past the am/pm around 9ish. All I know from there is head east on douglas to the lake, ($10 to access) drive through the gate and keep going straight or to the left looking for dottens point. PM me your # and I'll have gordon call or txt you with better directions. Here is what derek posted

I think I'm going to try out Beeks Bight this time, just stay on the main road, go past Dotons all the way to the end, I'm told the road just dead ends at BEEKS. If the area sucks we'll head back over to Dotons. theres some cool areas up top before you drive down the little dirt road to the lake.

day215 09-30-2010 05:24 PM

Ahhh, you gotta love Google! I have a pretty good idea of where it is, if I can make it out, I'll try to meet up at the am/pm, look for the Guy in the blue ram with the lost look in his eyes. Otherwise I'll see of I can meet you guys there. Is three a place for my wife to take our daughter for a walk in a stroller, she hasn't quite bought into the idea of me slapping some bfgs on it just yet.
