You forgot.


The Online RC Blogger.
The guy who thinks he knows all the other types in the hobby and makes it his goal to post about it. As if his opinion is worth more than someone else's.

Oh come on, dude. It's a tongue in cheek article. If parts are funny, it's because they're true.

And, I don't think I have ever implied that I believe my opinion is worth more than anyone else's. Just because I share my opinion doesn't mean I believe mine is more valuable than yours or anybody else's.

I don't have a blog.

Oh, we are both idiots on that though in other areas.

Eh, not bad... I mean I do see those types of individuals at the track from time-to-time. I have no issues with sarcasm, hell I love it... and that seems to be what most of that is.

I tell you dude, if you want to see (what I basically consider) the "master" at work, you have to check out the NYC Bike Snob blog. And go back through the older posts while you're at it. Snobby is the absolute champion of sardonic wit, coming from the perspective of a long-time participant in a particular hobby/sport.

Can you add the "Bitter, no personalty-having dirty hacker" description to your post ? I had to encounter this special sort of creature last round. It was a true joy to get him back (in the main) and then just check out .

There are some bitter types for sure. I always presume most people are trying to drive cleanly, but you never know. I guess a hack is a hack and it doesn't matter too much if they're hitting on purpose or just clueless.

i knew you looked familar, i was pitted behind you last week at psh.
(i'm the guy with the red and white cars with cow spots, pete)

anyway, nice article, i think we all know these types. most of the time they are harmless, the driver stand nazi is probably the worst offender in my opinion.

me, i'm just an all around idiot.

I agree. Thing is, when you race a guy like this for the first time, and mention what was going down and everyone starts chiming in along the lines of "yeah, that dude has been doing that to people for years, so watch out", you know it's by design. In the main I had to "sweep the leg" so to speak. Not my style, I prefer clean, but sometimes you gotta' do what you gotta' do .
