Re: Northwest area
 
I dunno, the van wert area is pretty flat, lol. Not much better around me though. We've got the river and aqueducts to run around. I haven't had a chance to scout any spots yet, hopefully in the spring.

There is a group of 5 or so that are local to me. Not sure how often they meet, the 1 guy I've talked to a few times on here isn't on very often. So mostly it's just me with my scx10 and my neighbor and his wraith, mini summit, and 4x4 slash.

Novak Rooster Crawler is a good start for a brushed, they can be had pretty cheap. Then there's the AWESOME HH TorqueMaster BR-XL, it'll run 6S and is programmable with a CastleLink.

turbomini 01-04-2012 06:29 PM

Re: Northwest area
 
hmm i am a little behind on the times this stuff, the last thing i had was about 7 years ago!

and i just looked that up i am thinking cheap under 100 or so i am on a really tight budget. i am looking for used if possable

Devil Inc 01-04-2012 06:40 PM

Re: Northwest area
 
A used Rooster Crawler is around the $30-45 mark, new about $90. BR-XL is probably $80ish used and $100 new or $110 new (waterproofed). Those are just for brushed motors. If you decide to go brushless there are others, myself, I'm still brushed so can't really help you other than you need to look at a sensored BL if you plan on having/needing good low speed control.

If you got a spare $20 and PayPal, you can always buy a supporter star so you can view the classifieds on here.

no pay pal :( but i was thinking about posting a wanted ad but i see now i cant huh

Devil Inc 01-04-2012 07:23 PM

Re: Northwest area
 
I think you have to wait the 30 days and have 30 "meaningful" posts before you'll be able to view them. Unless you decide to start a PayPal account. Probably 99% of the members deal with PayPal on here, wouldn't be a horrible idea to open an account if you can.

Re: Northwest area
 
you know i was wondering why it said i didnt have any posts! man this forum is a lot differnt than the car forum i am a admin on,

Devil Inc 01-04-2012 08:28 PM

Re: Northwest area
 
Yeah, posts count in the general and rig based sections to the best of my knowledge.

Re: Northwest area
 
Awesome, I'm running a SCX10 and my friend would probably be running his Wraith. I do have another set of axial axles, they just need a few bearings and ring/pinion gears. Then all I need is a transmission and I can rebuild me a shafty comp crawler to run.

Who knows with tax time approaching, I might just build a rig up, buy a new rig, and then have 3 to run. LOL

Re: Northwest area
 
Photobucket is the most common way, there should also be an "attachment" area at the bottom when you type a reply or new thread.

What about the banks of the Maumee River in Perrysburg? I'm from Genoa originally and seem to remember the banks being rocky.

I know the Portage River in Elmore, Oak Harbor is really shallow and rocky... I used to play down there as a kid. "thumbsup"

I'd check out Lake Erie too.
Here, in Chicago, Lake Michigan has rock breaker walls everywhere... miles of them.

This shot is at a park a few blocks from my apartment.

Re: Northwest area
 
I'm in Findlay, there are some ok spots around me. I have run along the Maumee River at Sidecut Metro Park. When the river is down there are plenty of crawling/trail running spots there.

I would like to see some pics. of the spots on Tiffin."thumbsup"

Re: Northwest area
 
sorry for the bad pics i used my cell phone. it is kinda hard to tell what you are really looking at because of the snow but it is a very fun place to crawl, i only walked about 150 yards into the trails only because i didnt feel like freezing my butt off and there is probably 2 miles+ of trails at the park...but there is dozens of different places within about 5-10 minutes of tiffin area

bmx bike track

a decent size hill for hill climbing

I've taken my Savage Flux to that BMX track before, kinda small and narrow, but not bad. I have never followed those trails before. I will have to go check them out when the monsoon is done.:shock:

rc2008 01-17-2012 12:23 PM

Re: Northwest area
 
yeah the track is small and narrow but still fun....those trails are right buy the bmx track the park has lots of trails

Headshok88 01-17-2012 01:11 PM

Re: Northwest area
 
Some of the best places I have seen around here is Van Buren park. There are a bunch of good places there, but some can be a long hike to get to. I do a lot of mountain biking at Van Buren park and know where most of the good spots are"thumbsup"
