Default Looking for Places to Play with RC Monster Truck

Hi! Looking for suggestions on good places to play with my son's and my RC trucks, preferably in or around Moultonborough. Also, interested in any BMX/sandy race tracks.

Thanks!

I don't have anything to offer as far as a location but am curious what you guys have for trucks.

Right now I'm rebuilding my Traxxas Slash 4x4 that's currently set up for monster truck duty.

We bought two Stampede 2WDs and a few Lipo batteries. I got into nitro 1/8 buggies some years ago and sunk too much money into (what was then) finicky tech. The speed and simplicity of the Stampede, matched with its height and price, is a pretty awesome basher.

Once I discovered hobby-grade RC's I found myself most comfortable with Traxxas products. My first nitro RC was the Nitro Hawk and from that point on I stuck with nitro right up to a few years ago when I was comfortable with battery technology.

Electrics are by far much more livable by comparison, IMO, and the power is instant!

It's a bit of a drive from the lake but you may want to check out Hillside Raceway in Deerfield sometime

That looks pretty cool. I'm not sure L'il Buddy can control his truck that well, though!

Race Park 106 in Pembroke has a track as well, not usually busy during the week.

Do they still have an rc track? Everything I've seen online is for go karts.
