It's free to register with our club. State wide affiliation. If you want to join our forums it's only $25 a year. This money goes strictly to running the sight. If we get enough members the extra money goes to promotions and give aways.

Comps are free and we are trying to have one comp a month. Our two official sights are the Fossil Gorge near the Coralville Spillway outside of Coralville, Ia.

The other is my modular setup at my house just north of Cedar Rapids off old Hwy 218 (N. Center Point Rd).

Watching Bart ride the lil pink bicycle over the crawler course is well worth the price of admission!! :D




IaROCK is open to members of all ages with any scale crawler at any experience level. The only requirement is you must have fun...and that comes pretty easy as we have the greatest group of folks to be found in Iowa. :-*

I guess I should post too that at my "Hobby Shack" I do have a dirt offroad track that we race Slash's and 1/8 buggies on. It's a little tight right now for 1/8 scale, but we are going to be expanding it in the near future.

The race track is 1/8 buggy/truggy worthy now.

I have a highly modded AX10.

and a TF based Shafty Super

The modular course is covered in quick crete sand mix and burlap with a chicken wire understructure.
We crawl at the McBride Spillway and when we have permission the Fossil Gorge at the Coralville Spillway. That is OFF LIMITS unless other wise noted at IaROCK.org.

Not gonna post pics of Coralville due to it being off limits.

Those look like some fun ledges to run my full size rock crawler on. >:D I wish Iowa would open some of these parks for wheeling .

Yah keep dreaming. Those are all in Johnson County. Tree hugger capital of Iowa. That's why we were asked to stay off the Fossil Gorge cause the fossil gazers at the University had spent big bucks on making the parking area half way pretty. We aren't done with them yet. We are asking for a couple dates to have comps there but still waiting to see what happens.

Sorry sonnyd, were you asking if I had a 1:1 rig? I do it's a '79 CJ5. It's still being re-assembled so I have'nt wheeled it in 7 years :-\

Yes the tires were really wet and HOT lol . They had alot of rain the week before we were down there . There were streams on all the rock obstacles . I lived in AZ for 8 years and the crawlin down there was awesome . Dry and sticky . 8)
