Here is a picture from Google Maps of the location that I found. I am going to be heading down there this Saturday with a few 2s and 3s Lipo batteries! Also, will be uploading some video when I get down there this weekend as well. A ton of undeveloped property here to bash
It will b time to take off the street tires and put on my dirt tires for this session.

Thanks for saving me a trip out there mate! I wonder if this is another spot available for some bashing since it's all industrial over there.

I live in the Largo area and there is a little hidden mini BMX track that's only 5 mins from the house. That was plan B! You cant bring this place up on google maps b/c it's hidden in the forest since it was man-made track. I will shot some cool videos as soon as I install my 6S BLX Typhon upgraded shocks onto my #Granite BLX 4X4 which will be ready this weekend.

I respect the perseverance you have in locating great bash spots. I frequent the Clearwater area, I am sure it is way better than NYC for bashing.:)

I can tell you that in NYC and surrounding is not RC friendly as of late. Don't know why. RC bashing is not conducive to bashing your RC rig. :unsure:

It's freaking impossible to find some simple dirt piles to jump or a location to bash! I live only a mile from the ocean and there is zero places! If anyone knows of any, please let me know? I know there is a track in Lutz, FL called SS Hobbies raceway buts its a track and there are a few in Tampa, FL. I am going to go check this old place where we use to ride our BMX bikes in the woods that had some killer jumps but it was a while ago. The woods are still there so maybe the Mountain bike trail is there which would be super awesome. Will Advise.

Silly question, but why not the beach? I know there are protected areas, but there’s gotta be some dunes or something.

I would prefer to keep out of the beach sand! I know this is an old video but this is where the track was located and a bunch of my buddies will be heading out there and start working on it and fix it back up. This is what it looked like a few years ago even know the video was made in 2010. Skip to min 1:37.
