A full size buggy?? Like I said I'll try to scout out that spot in fbf. I think that might be best since we are all familiar with fbf?

Ok guy I just got back from trying to do a little scouting for a better spot in FBF.

Regarding this spot,



I didn't see the road circled in red at all. It's probably there and the entrance is just covered by greenery, but I don't think you can drive down it.

Regarding this spot circled in blue,



The road circled in red is not blocked off. However, at the entrance there is a sign that says restricted access to fish permit holder only, I went in anyway and a little further down there was a Do Not Enter sign so I turned around. Not sure if this applies to just cars.

Regarding the BJs spot, didn't people stop going there because they were getting tickets? I think I read that.

The guy got a ticket at the bjs spot because he parked his full size Jeep in there. theres also a spot I use to park at right near the field...ive never got a ticket for parkin there but I heard other peps that did. When u get to The spot its not blocked off, not gated, and theres no "do no do not enter signs. I would go check it out if I was drivin...but im currently not.

This is only part of the spot....it goes waay further back. As u can see the guy parked his truck on the field, visible to anyone driving on the the street. When trucks drop off there full size ATVs they are normally deeper in the field out of view.
@ .46 u can see a dirt bike riding by.
I had my 1/10th Mini MGT w.28 there at the time...as u can see it did well.

If you can some how achieve an inch or more of ground clearance yes why not, it doesn't hurt to try nether the less.

know guy with suvs like that x5 should have no problem getting in and out

Ok, if thats where you guys wanna go, sounds good Its maybe 20min away from me. I only have a car no suv so I'll just park in the front. I'll pop on my paddle tires, jack my ride height up and gear as low as I have. Overheating may be a problem?

Im down to go to the spot tomr morning/afternoon, check it out and run for a bit.
At least we can go, see how the spot is and if its a good place for us to run on a regular basis....then we can schedule another meet up there (or somewhere else if its no good) in the near future when more peps can make it.
Let me know if u still want to meet.

Ok I think I can make it out for a bit tomorrow. What time?

I plan on parking here than walker red line. I don't want to risk the ticket parking back there and my real car would get stuck anyway. And I can fit every thing in a small duffel bag so its no big deal.
