Default NEW OFF ROAD TRACK, WINSTED CT

just a heads up, there's a new track in winsted ct (northwest ct).

it's behind a shopping mall. here's a link to the hobby shops website http://www.*********andmore.com/Default.aspx

it's 1/10 off road, and they are building a 1/5 off road track too.

really cool people, laid back atmosphere.

most people are running sc trucks but there are a few buggies.

i want to see more buggies.
<buggy fan

this past saturday was my first time racing there (and my first time raciing in 17 years lol) and we all had an awesome time.

i got lumped inot sportsman class due to being a buggy, the class was hilarious:

brushless emaxx
vxl pede
vxl rustler
vxl bandit
t4
and my b4.

so anyone looking for some excellent off road action in the ct area you need to hit up rc hobbies and more!
they run on saturdays, racing starts @ 2pm.

if my wife didn't steal my camrea i'd have some pics. i'll get some next time.

I plan on checking out the track sometime soon. Since Iam getting back into the hobby and running a vintage Traxxas Bandit, the sportsman class is probably the right class for me.
