NY (putnam), CT (Danbury) RC racing

Hey all, there are some nice places to go racing and bashing in the NY/CT area. I'm wondering if anyone is in the area on the forum? I just moved up to Carmel, NY and already the local hobby shop knows me I'm a fan of local support, the hobbyshop down the street also has another one in new milford, CT (gmxracing.com) They have a real nice offroad track, a nice oval dirt track, and (now that the indoor season really started) everyone is racing indoors. I have been on and off with RC cars/trucks for years and enjoy the track and the back yard I'm really mostly looking to see who might be in the local area and what/where you might race/bash at!

If there is enough people around I thought about a club. But I guess let me first find out who is around

i, too, live in putnum(mahopac). a GREAT lhs for r/c is GALLIMODS on rt 6 in mahopac. the owners also have a race track in new milford, ct(short drive on rt84 from carmel). in addition to their track, there's wolcott(ct) as well as barnstormers in chester, ny.........both within driving distance. all tracks run different forms (indoor/outdoor) all year long.

Yeah, galli's was who I was talking about

They are trying to get more of the monster truck crowd back for the big track (which is in dam nice shape) next season as brucneers in Nanuet has closed. Barnstormers is cool but they always have one jump that you hit wrong and you're in the corn field. They are also thinking of racing thursday nights @ 7.

www.gallimods.com - the mahopac store (8 miles from me)
www.gmxracing.com - the new millford store (about 20 miles from me)

Funny enough it takes the same amount of time to get to both stores cause of !@$!@ rt 6

I wanna race my revo 3.3 (mostly stock other than pipe and a couple little things) and my micro-t (lipo upgrade and a custom body). Though I'm a little outta practice, I've been having fun when I can with the micro-t in the basement on a track I made with old tamiya tires

Is there any clubs or "get togethers" in the area? I know a few places other than the track to rip up some dirt! Was poking around to see if there was any dirbike trails :P
