Default Finding a place to run

I can't seem to find a spot to run without somethin messin up my signal,cops asking too many questions,curbs,light...all that.Where do you guys go to run your cars at?Maybe theres places I've never thought of,but one cool one I've never seen mentioned is a track and field track at a high school.I ran mine there once and with the exeption of sand on the edges of it (gotta love Florida) it was pretty cool.

large parking lots without parking blocks work, as well as tennis courts and things of that nature, not to mention tracks actually made for onroad cars

Isn't there a big drag strip in Gainesville? Jeez, I wonder if you could "sneak" in sometime? Or perhaps find a sympathetic person in charge who'd let you in from time to time???They must have a big parking lot too, aye?

if you have a car use the high school track that the kids run a round i run my surpent there cause the road and parking lots tare up the foam tires!!!!

but some onroad cars dont have enouh ground clearance if it is an rubber track so you might have to stiffin the shocks to keep the chassis off the ground, some high schools have concrete tracks that work good to!!

if u have a truck you can use a baseball field or football field at a school , but if it looks like they put alot of money into the grass and is a very nice field and urr truck tears it up u can get in trouble!!!!!

I meant on road,and I like that dragstrip idea...I'm gonna try to head out there the next wednesday I have my car running...its test and tune and $5 to watch,$15 to run as many passes as the amount of people allow.

On a side note,I smoked a Lancer really bad in a street race tonight..he had a huge 3'' strait pipe that was loud as sh... and he got his ass beat with my stock Eclipse.I saw his headlights way back there,lol.And he turned up his stereo on the line like it was gonna help
