Hey, the bike is intact!!!
Racing costs a lot less than marriage.
If you want to race and you're not married... let it be...
If you're married then lie lie lie.
Try to paint all your bodies the same way. They pay attention to handbags not being coordinated with shoes, but that they can't really tell.
All cars look the same to them
If you have kids, try to blame it on them. It's the kids car, it's the Mini Z for the kid etc etc.
Try to look surprised when you find a track to race on near your summer vacation spot (i really did this one wonderfully). Amazingly
I had to return home for a day to deal with some business issues. On my way back I took the cars (go figure...)
If you buy online, buy something online for her, like books in Amazon. On the CC balance they all look the same (I have the damn house filled with books now).
NEVER but NEVER use a speadsheet to add all your spending if you are over 35. Chances of a coronary are enormous.
If you stopped using one thing take it out of sight. Never put the 4 chargers and 5 ESC close to one another.
If you can't sell a chassis full of hop ups CONVINCE yourself it's a rare car and treat it like a collectors item. You'll feel much better.
Don't leave half used tires around. Ditch them fast. Adding their cost mentally will depress you.
And never expect to spend less in the future. It wont happen. You'll just change to bigger cars due to poor vision (it comoes with age you know?) and that my friend , is true ruin...
