There is a great bash spot in Hines park. It's just a bit west of Haggerty on Hines drive. It is a track in progress, so there are jumps and bumps. Nice bash spot.

Hi, there is a track in Livonia, Dirt Burner Racing -

38101 Schoolcraft Rd, Livonia, MI 48150

(734) 591-1000

It is West of Haggerty off the 96 Jeffries service drive.

I am looking to get a group of people together to run for fun and practice. I'd like to make an outdoor track at some location or have some times set to meet up at the hines drive track.

I noticed the track on Hines Drive giving a friend/co-worker a ride home. What is the status of this track? Who built it? If anyone has pictures close-up, please share!

I'm in Huntington Woods BTW, right around 10 mile & Woodward

Yup I found it. I had a great time out there. So did my wife. She's even getting into the hobby with me now.
I'm in love with nitro but the guys we met there have her ready to go electric. I admit they are just as much fun.
So we're shopping around now. Love the track and can't wait to get back out there!

No... I'm not new to RC.. I've been addicted for about 6yrs now. My 1st Nitro was the Tornado S30.
I've been adding on 2 my collection ever since. Sunday however, was my 1st time at a track. My wife was with me and she had so much fun that now she is getting into the hobby. Yes I've been here awhile but now we're doing it together.
