Default 5th Scale Track in Gilberts

Now Open

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.

Please follow guidelines as listed below.

GILBERTS RC TRACK GUIDLINES

1. This track is on private property, this is not business run, please be courteous and pick up all your garbage.

2. The track hours are 12:00pm to 7:00pm Mon-Thur, 10:00am to 9:00pm Sat, 11:00am to 5:00pm Sun. There are local noise ordinances, please respect these times. Currently any exhaust pipe is allowed on track. *Special events will be held that may change these times*

3. Kids Welcome (Parents Please Control Kids).

4. Family Friendly Behavior Required At All Times. No Fighting or Excessive Foul Language.

5. Food and Drink are not supplied on premise unless there is a special event, however you may bring your own food. Many restaurants are within 5 mile drive as well. There are no bathrooms on the premises, they are located 2 blocks away.

6. Alcohol can be consumed as long as participants are of legal drinking age.

7. Failure to follow these guidelines and rules can and will result in person/persons being banned from site or all together shut down of track. I reserve the right to modify these guidelines/rules.

8. Please report any issues or problems to me asap

* Donations, as the track is free, are appreciated, either monetary, materials and/or time*

RC TRACK RULES

1. Any scale RC Car or Truck welcome. (Electric, Nitro, Gas) Track is designed for 1/5 scale RC Cars.

2. Radio Frequency Must Be Displayed.
Use 2.4ghz or FM/AM users Bring Extra Crystals.

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.

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.
