Im just wondering because I believe RC should be a family hobby, not so much individual, so i wanted to see if any of you guys have anyone else in the family to share your RC time with?

myself, and my little brother are the only RC drivers in the family, my cousin owns a T-maxx, but only ran it like 10 times, not its in his closet. how Sad.

not currently,
when did the XXXT come out? cause my brother made an attempt at it back then. he bought a XXXT, built most of it. i finished it. he drove it 3 or 4 times and gave it up. claims it was boring. but you won't hear me complaining, i got a free truck! lol

and my cousin raced 1/10 scale electric off road back in the early to mid 90's. gave it up to drag race slot cars.

All three of my sons (I have no daughters, and only one daughter in law).

We have our own track in my "back yard" (I live on some acreage, but the wife won't allow all of it to be track :rolleyes: ).

They also run at a local (to them) track, but the name escapes me.

So far its just me. When my two brothers graduate from college in 4 and 14 years, then I hope to have both of them into it. Right now they are into paintball:-X

I gave my 1st kid a Stampede when he was 4. He started racing at the local track when he was 5. He is 7 now and has the Stampede, Rustler, Tamiya TL01 and an Xmod. My 3 year old kid has a Traxxas Bandit. Too little to race, but he does know how to make the car go where he wants it to.

My dad helped me with my car when I made it 4 years ago. He likes it a lot and I'm getting back into it. My one neighbor (my dad's age) has 3 trucks and a buggy.

She only has two at the moment, a Micro Ultrix (she has one and I have one) and a J-3 Cub ( which we're modifying with brushless and Li-Po.

We're fixin' to get a Blade CP Mirco Heli with the aerobatic enhancment kit for 3D capability.
We'll argue over which one of us it belongs to :P and end up getting another more then likely. :D
