Gilberts 1/5 Scale Track

This track is still in construction, but is fully functional. I will continue to modify as needed. We're still working on a drivers stand, more dirt is needed to build up corners as well as jumps. We have temp track lanes up and will continue to expand.

Thanks for posting, Tyler! Subscribed to this thread. Hopefully, this will get some more 1/5 scalers in the Chicagoland/Rockford area together for some fun! The track is fantastic and coming along VERY well. Let us know when you decide to schedule some work days and make a list of materials folks can donate. Also, please don't hesitate to ask for donations when the time comes to buy things.

Cool to see all these different tracks because they are all so different and yet they all look fun to run on.

Sorry to have missed you guys--I was sick as a dog. I think we're targeting this Saturday for some track time.

Hectima007 10-30-2012 01:12 PM

Hope I get my parts by Thursday so I can have it back together and ready by Saturday

Just finished rebuilding the entire rear end, fitted new rear Rodeeos on 5B Deperado wheels and installed front shock tower. Gotta rebuild the front shocks, secure my pipe (lost hardware, again) and unfock my steering turnbuckles in the AM. See you guys around 1ish.

Hectima007 11-03-2012 07:11 PM

Had a good day at the track today yes good not great cause that stock 5 body is already a trasher body and a broken rear bumper but all in all had a fun day all I can say is just wait till I get that 20 gear and I'm gone :) and also in need of a dual steering tray getting fade bad after just a couple laps
