Guys, interested to experience a different kind of track day? RC off-roading. I know a guy who has a full track near Madurathagam. He rents out nitro and electric buggies and truggies to race. You can get your own as well. Can check out the details if there is sufficient interest. We can then head to Pondi for.........

Check this video to get a basic idea of offroad rc track:

Yes, perfect. There is nothing as exciting as the real experience.

But I would not call a model car with a 2 stroke, 2.5 bhp@30000rpm with all time 4WD, 3 differentials and 2 speed transmission moving at 70km/hr a "TOY".

These cars are really exciting on a track. Like nick said, why dont we try it?

@mail4ajo

Sounds good. When can we do it? and yeah if we do have the opportunity while we are there we can have Vikram's Gypsy do a few stunts for the eyes

and now we have 3 ideas being proposed here. 4 infact
1. RC offroading
2. Yercaud /Pondy
3. Another track day
4. Real off roading

could someone sequence them in the most suitable manner with tentative dates.

The RC meet would be fun if we have atleast 6-8 members. So if I have tentative confirmations, can speak with the track owner to find out details.

RC meet sounds like fun.
Only thing I'm worried about is the heat, its too hot outside.

Thats good, I can pull 2 guys from my office. Any weekend dates after next week will be good. Let me know if you have any suggestions.

From what I heard, there is an elevated enclosure from where you drive the cars.
