As do I. I don't think it gets enough credit or recognition...when people ask you your hobbies and you say RC Cars, they think that those are just for little kids.

been in & out since 1990......i always will be in the hobby. Ex-wife didnt care much for it, but hey ,.one reason of many why she is the ex......my latest is a TB-01 rally....something to kick around with. to those of you who "come back", funny how you grab that controller, and think" i'll just put around a bit"..........night falls, and you wonder where the day went. To me, i enjoy running something i "made", seeing how far i can push it, trying new things, ideas.....and seeing how someone else can take alomst the same thing, and give it a completely different twist than mine has,.........you learn from each other, and apply that on your next kit....ok, battery is charged....gota go

First rc in junior high, then a break during high school, but once I got back to CA in college I've been nuts since. I can't hold a candle to some of these collections, but I'm proud of my 3 cars. Gotta admit once I went brushless/lipo on the 18T the other 2 cars have been shelf queens.
