Where is this shop?

Edit: Ok, its right near the 206th D station... that might work... how big would the track be? Also, what kind of neighborhood is it to walk from the train with equipment if your white :rolleyes:

The funny thing, is that Im serious about that... Ive never been to this area in the Bronx, and it might not be too safe late at night walking to the train or waiting on the platform for an extended period of time... Im pretty street smart, but when your waiting for the train, with a couple thousand dollars worth of equipment, you feel like a sitting duck.

EMU, I don't know what your weekday night schedules are, we can go together (Thursday is no good for me though usually). There is also a MTA bus stop right in front of the shop.

Went there for the first time this afternoon and had a blast. Got a new MR-03 and will be headed back in a few minutes for the racing tonight.

If anyone has a stock 2.4g K-18 Transmitter/controller they want to sell please bring it tonight.
Thanks
Jeremy

A pic of my added decals so I can see my car better this week, all black is a no-no LOL And Installing fresh batteries in the transmitter should solve the annoyingglitch I was suffering.

No more Thursday night racing? Bummer, I really had a good time a few weeks ago when I got to race there.

So are you guys still running at this track? Man there are alot of places to run in the NYC are!

I really like this track it is amazing how much RCP you can cram into a small space is it Mini-96 or standard size. Or maybe reconfigured custom all together.

If the schedules were not all the same you all could probably race 5 nights a week at 5 different places.

Actually I think there are 6 official tracks within an hours drive of Manhattan... ;) So, if you had your own track, you could drive 7 days a week (theoretically).

It would be cool to plan a six day series at six different locations. That would be be a true test of skill (driving and tuning).

The 6 we all know of plus one in Rockland county where they don't race, but have an RCP track where you can practice during the day, so 7 public tracks.
