Whew, that's gotta be a huge track, because I know how big this one is (below)... the offroad track's inside & the one outside is onroad. This is where I race- I wish I had that kind of room in my backyard!
Ain't this fun?

Show us where you race! (http://www.globexplorer.com/mapquest/)

That is so cool. I got an aerial shot of my house. The coolest part is that if you run outside after you hit the "Get map" button you'll be in the picture! lol

Hey...Tyrone..... have you guys got a dirt track in Vernon????? I was thinking of coming to the interior this summer. If there was a spot to get an "RC fix" that would make it even more attractive. Check out my location ..... no dirt tracks in the lower Island area.....dangit!!!!

Hey Bluesy, no we don't have an RC track in Vernon, I race in Kelowna. They have an electric and nitro track side by side. Hosted the Nats last year, so the track is pretty decent.
I'll have to take some pics of it this sunday and forward em to ya.
:)
We do have a pretty wicked BMX track here in Vernon though... but I only go there when I have lotsa spare parts :eek:

Here's our local track, A-Main Raceway, in Vancouver, WA. The dark black asphalt in the middle of the pic is the on-road course. You can see the racing line around it. The building below it houses the store, off-road track, and the pits. Across the street to the left and up is the non-affiliated go-kart track, which is all indoors.

I don't think it works for Canada. Anyone know of a site where this will work for Canada adresses? We just built an awsome offroad and onroad course I'd like you guys to see

offroader
06-17-2002, 03:20 PM
Here's our new tracks. I had to draw the tracks in as they have just recently been built and the aerial photo is a year or 2 old, but you get the idea. The offroad track is on the right and the onroad track is on the left. The drivers stand is inbetween them so both tracks can use the same one.

Nevermind. ARRGHHHH! They dont have any for my house or town!!! I live in Portage, MI. All I get is Austin Lake and a ton of green. U can just barely make out the highways.

I hope they will update it! That is so cool tho, some of these pics are so clear. Does anyone know of another wesite that has a larger library of photos, or where it will actually take the picture new when u click "Get Aerial Photo"? Now that would be sweet! Any websites?

Thanks

type in an addy - you get tabs to toggle between maps & air photos when the map is fully loaded you'll be 3 zoom levels out.

Hey this is really coo guys, lets see if this works... If it does the town home complex to the right is where i live and the big chunk dirt land is where i bash my 1/8th axis. Its soooooooo fun, its kinnda a bike trail thingy now so there are little jumps ect a lot of loose dusty dirt (real offroad) and its crazy fun. I can spend hours over there. Cya

me again :D couldnt resist, i had to show u guys a pic of my local hobby town usa. I cant stand the hobby shop people, they treat u like complete freakin idiots and are all stupid dude thats are like 18 years old and make no money and think they are all bad and crap. I will never give the hobby shop my business and hardly go to the track. Anyways eather way it is a nice track, has a small small dirt oval, onroad asphalt touring and oval track, along with a really sweet dirt track. just a story really quick on the stupidity you deal with at the local hobby shop. I asked a guy what the classes were for nitro onroad, as far as scale and limitations as far as spec races ect.... he said, well he have stock and modified, well me being not a big racer i havnt heard of stock and mod NITRO sedan racing. So i ask him whats the difference is one a spec class and one regular with like bb's diff tires ect ect, he answers "no, stock is like regular motors and modified is with like uhh 12 turn motors and stuff" i just walked out. He knew i was speaking of nitro sedan because i said it plain and clear at least twice in that convo. Anyways lol heres the pic of the track.

They must not have new data for your area Neo - I got B/W photo also. It's prolly 10-15yrs ago also. You should check it every couple of months sooner or later the satellite will pass over on a clear day.

Any sites where I can get Canadian addys??? I just get the map, no aerial views...

but... here's my grandma's house in NJ. The smaller structure is the garage. It is a nice wooded area with huge boulders. Once I (start and) finish my pan car project, I'll be buying or building an off-roader that I can launch off those rocks...
