100 Mill Rd, Gilbert's, IL. The land where the track is located is owned by T2K on this forum. Feel free to send him a PM and introduce yourself.

I'm hoping to make it out with Ducky Dave before the snow covers everything. Maybe next Friday after work? I'm a bit scared to go to the track though, heard there is a bad virus of Losi fever that hits unsuspecting baja owners upon arrival.....LOL.

Can't run 'em at the dunes--I asked over the phone earlier this year. Gilberts is good and there's another spot at Irving Park and Cumberland on the NW side. It's is little tricky to get to, so PM me if you want details.

I'm in Warrenville. I've got a brother-in-law out in Genoa. I've got an SC and he's got a 5b. I'm looking for decent weather and need some more time behind the wheel before I head out to Gilberts. I've seen a few of you guys in the RCLargeScale forums. Is there a club or website associated with the track? I'd kind of like to get to know the tracks' owner before I show up with the noise maker...

Hey bigchild

Wish I could remember your name but its been a while.

You can still run in that field but i haven't ran there since 2011. I've been going to Gilberts. Lots of fun. Rocky Glenn sounds very tempting/interesting.
