Well, we didn't get to run much today but we did see the spot was still a great place to bash. So when can everyone make it out?

Hey, whats up all. I'm getting my MGT 8.0 in a few days and looking for some places and people to bash around with.

I usually go to Floyd Bennett and run on a large flat pavement area near the Sanitation facility there.  Its quiet, big and no one bothers us but not very exciting for off road trucks....too flat.

I'll be keeping an eye out on this thread and hope to meet up sometime.

I'm in Old Mill Basin

Yeah...we didn't get to run much in the back of BJs last week....and didnt have too much luck. My truck ran great for 2mins till it flipped over the air filter came off...sucked in some sand. I shut it down before it got bad, but i think sand messed up the one way bearing and pull start. I ordered both...hopefully ill get them by the end of the week. Besides that i got stuck..twice. I did drive back there in a 4wd Astro van and parked near the bushes out of site...i didn't get stuck in the sand tho (not this time...). The battery in the van died because we had the side door open and the interior lights drained the battery....thanks for the drop home Joe . I went back in a 4wd X3 and boasted it. The second time i got stuck was tryin to help a small FWD car that thought, for what ever reason, he could drive back there....thats when i got stuck in the sand and had to get pushed out of the hole my tires made

The spot was awesome tho...we walk around a bit before we started our r/c's. The track that i saw there before is there is visible but not in good shape....further back theres a good spot for bashing and even a few sand piles for jumping. BUT we only checked out a SMALL area of the spot....
I recently spoke with a buddy of mines that runs his dirt bike and ATV back there....but they run on the other side, even futher back. He says there another bigger track back there [X(] .... i believe he said there where 2...one for ATVs and other for dirt bikes....with jumps and all. Best thing is he says NO ONE bothers them back there. I have yet to check the entire spot out...but its lookin better and better.

Yea, can't wait to go back, and explore more too. If there are atv and dirt bike tracks that would be sick! Yea, I knew I had no chance of driving back there in my little car, I just parked in the front and the walk was only like 5 min. And damn I'm literally the only person here who doesn't have an MGT!

wish u can make it out there soon Goatcrapp. U can def have a good time back there with your Jeep (real)....just be sure u got some good off road tires cause that sand will def test your Jeep out.
It just rain heavy the past day, so that made things alot better the day we went.
Joe, your buggy (rc) seemed like it was doing good back there also with them paddle tires.

Cool, since your willing to come to Queens, the spot in Brooklyn is only one exit into Brooklyn from the belt. Its Exit 15 off the belt parkway I believe, Erskine St.

I think im just going to get another engine....Losi 454. I currently have the LRP version of that engine in my truck now. I dont have time to disassemble engine to see if sand cause any more damage (im guessing it did). So ill order it tomr, install it by Friday, and break in Saturday.

Im down for next Sunday (07-05-12)....lets see how many peps can make that date, then we'll see where everyone would like to go. (im down for where ever as long as its FUN!)

Actually, for the spot me an Crank visited, he said rain beforehand makes it much better. With a good soaking the sand is nice and firm, he said the sand is regularly so dry and soft that it's even hard to walk. BTW I wanna say again your youtube videos are sick! Cant wait to see more from the gopro on the quadcopter! I'm not a big fan of mounting the gopro on a truck and taking a POV video, but I think having the camera facing backwards filming a another truck chasing it would be cool
