    I got into RC when i was in the military and had nothing better to do. Ive had many but now Im down to 4 and enough spare parts for many more. I got 2 RC10GTs. 1 is just fun to go run around nut the other is insanely fast and too hard to control. Ive ran our of aftermarket parts for it. Also got a goofy (tamiya I think) snowcat that hasnt been operational forever... too many moving parts maybe. Then I got a old electric boat unsure what brand, but am currently working on building a slipperclutch to bolt up to a .15cc nitro motor. If I can get the balast correct on the boat when the motor gets up to speed the prop will be spinning at about 40,000 RPM. The boat should go fast if it dont wreck first..

    I've got a Clodbuster with ESC and modified motors, the semi-assembled parts of a Blackfoot with Big Bear tires, a Hornet with some insanely fast modified motor, and remains of a couple other cars/trucks that I use for kit-bashing to keep the Hornet working.
    I want to get a T-Maxx, but I've got better things to spend the money on, like the full-size truck in my driveway......

    Currently: RC10T team, XXT-CR, XX-CR, RC10L3, RC10B2, Bruiser... I think that's all of em... Over the years I've had: RC10's, more XX's, Clods, Tamiya F1's and sedans, RS4 pro, RC10L, GTX, RC10T2, and probably a couple that have slipped my mind. I used to race off-road, 10th scale pan, F1, and sedan, but it's been a couple of years and all of my stuff is packed away in boxes...

    RCs are kinda like real rigs in a way. It all depends on what your wanting to do with it. If you are wanting to race them that truck wouldnt be a good idea. For running it around the local ball fields or annoying the neighbors with the nitro motor it would be ok. If you want an offroad racer your fairly limited RC10GT, Lost NXT and Kyosho recently made a new one. Traxxas also makes a nitro stadium truck but it is HEAVY but the thing is built like a tank.

    This is my quickest RC. has a novarossi/picco paris edition .12motor. MIP tuned muffler, oil filled remote res. shocks, alien head (which lets you run a bigger glow plug)Tried to go to a local track and race it but they wouldnt let me. said not enough people run midified so they wont open up the class /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif
