Hey Everyone, Newbie in Gippsland
« on: January 06, 2017, 11:18:40 PM »
Hey Everyone,

Just signed up to LSD after getting a second hand Baja 5b given to me by a friend.

I have been looking at 1/5 scale for a few years however it didn't go any further than window shopping. This has all changed now though!

The 5b has done a lot of work and I have spent the last couple of months cleaning it up and replacing worn out and broken parts (in between having some fun with it!) to make it a reliable buggy. The more I look the more I find though, so I am getting very familiar with the PRC website!

At this point I have not located any large scale tracks in my area, however there are a few BMX tracks around that are a bit of fun, they provide a break from running around at home. I will most likely start building a track at home over the coming months if the Minister of Finance does not object.   

Over the next few weeks I am hoping to visit the East Gippsland RC Club which is near Bairnsdale to check out their facilities. I have friends who are members and I am told that they currently have a few tracks mainly catering for 1/8 scale and a area for general use. they also cater for boats as well with a large dam, so I think the club is worth checking out. 

If anyone knows of any tracks east of Melbourne, please let me know, I would be keen to check them out.

Cheers,
didj
