Medina is the closest I believe. That's where all the Cleveland/Akron guys go to race.

I live just down the street from you on E. 233 right next to sims. I am about to head out to the track in a few. I have a HPI MT 1. Not much of it is stock anymore. I take it out sometimes to St. Christine's parking lot. It kinda boring though, I want more jumps than a couple of speed bumps. I also bash in the west side of sims there are some bike jumps over there that a pretty kewl. Mostly though I am bored with the spots I have found. What kind of truck do you have and where do you run it besides the track?

I think I get off at 7 on tuesday. I will be there. You are talking about the high school right? I was just talking to my wife, we cant think of a shell on the marginal. There is a couple sunocos but not sure what gas station you are talking about. I would like to check out the BMX track at least once. I am also definitly planing on going back out to medina this saterday. That track out was so kewl! I guess I am a little baised because its the only track I have been to. Oh well. :D

Tony :dude:

Wait, there is a shell a 260 I think.. Is that it? No matter I will look for a track there today before I get back here to check anyway. So why did I bother to write this. lol Well I guess I could be wrong! :eek:

Update: I looked behind the shell on 260 and the marginal and there is no track there. Looks to be some trails back there. I got out and walked a bit but its really woodsy dont see how you could run there. Am I in the wrong spot?

I work till 8 pm tommrow. I work right down 222nd though. I will end up at the high school shorty after then, if you are still around.

I went over behind shell today to run a bit before work. A guy came out and asked me to leave. He was nice about it. I dont understand how I was bothering anything but whatever. Just a fyi on the spot.

I was asked to work tommrow so I will not be coming out to the track. :(

I found a nice bashing spot though. 21500 St. Clair, not far from E. 222. It is a big rocky parking lot and a big field with 2 hills. I talked to a guy there one day and he said he didnt think anyone would mind. I went around 7 at night and there were some people working but they didnt care. The hills are perfect. One has a nice platform at the top and you can hit it from almost any angle. The other makes a high jump if you hit it right. My nmt was having some trouble with the uncut grass, not too bad. Nice close by bashing spot. The best jumps I have found in Euclid so far.
