Northwest Illinois 1/5 Scale Track

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.

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.

I would love to come back. I will see if I can squeeze it in again. (oh, got my engine running good again). I wasnt sure why it was stalling like that. Took the carb out, opened it all up, everything seemed clean. so I just re-installed it and got better. Who knows. My theory is one of the fuel lines might have had a kink in it.
