It's hard to find people that own monster trucks here in Sydney. It gets kinda boring driving around your suburb with mates that own race cars (u are constantly trying to avoid running over them).


I am in Liverpool, and I some times goto the 4WD offroad track at Menai tobust my Mitsubishi Pajero and take the oppurtunity of wide open gravel to drive my Savage 25there too.(Free all day).


Sydney dudes interested or want other people to race with, post replies or if you want any questions answered regarding this place please post them here as well.


Cheers

Hi there,

That sounds like a good idea, but I was in a 4x4 club a year ago and there were issues with a really good location in Menai.

The problem was that it was owned by an aboriginal council or something and people were destroying the place, dumping cars and all that sort of thing. The place ended up having the gates shut to everyone except for organised club trips (or something like that)

Is this the same place - there would be signs at the entrance if it is.

Other than that, I'd be in for a trip some day in the future.
I'm equipped with a 1/8 buggy and Isuzu 4x4 off roader - nothing soft about it except maybe the tyres


Cheers!
Oggy.
p.s. I'm in the Parramatta/hills area so it's just a little bit of a hike.

Wooo 4 Savages, that's sweet as. I havent been to Menai in a while, I will go check it outthis weekend,Ogier, see if there are any new rules regarding the use of the place.


Auburn/ Merrylandsaint dat far, actually Merrylands is up the alley. Where do u dudes usually race? Suburbs? Moorebank track?


If we do go, Ogier, thats an ideal place for a buggy dude, hard packed surface, you'll be doing circles around the us Savage dudes, until someone loses an ego and 4 Savagesturn towardsyour buggy.Can you say "Tag"? Joke.


Sounds good, I will check the place again this weekend and update u dudes. I got a mate in the city that has a Savage SS so tally rite now is 5 Savages, 1 buggy.


Could you dudes also advertise the specs on your monsters, here's ma ride - Savage 25 RTR, HPI polished pipe, motorsaver, firm tire inserts, 30 weight shock oil.


Cheers,


milknbutter.

Yeah, Savage Tag (or Rex tag?) crossed my mind too


My specs are pretty short & sweet.

Rex-x, RB WS7II, Motosaver 2 stage filter, front shock guards for kicking MTs & pavement and a JR XS3 controller (27.045 I think)

I've got spare 29.825 & 29.845 AM crystals if anyone else has a freq. clash on 29MHz.


Cheers, Oggy.

p.s. don't worry about the tyres, I'll swap the off-roaders onto it!

UPDATE ON MENAI TRACK - Pics galore


I went to the Menai track to check ittoday, and I can tell you, there were no restrictions, I happily took my Pajero in there and there were many 4 wheel drivers and also bikes there.


Here are somepic'sof my Savage. We should go soon, all 5 Savages, and the buggy dude
Would be awesome. The pics are only of a single area, keep in mind there are km's of tracks like this and we just couldnt be bothered to drive around all day to look for the best spot so we settled for this narrow area to bash. Enjoy - milknbutter.

















Different Body





There are smoother surface areas, but I chose to take pics here for dramatic effect. Post your thoughts, oh and the place is free.


Cheers,
