Smile How serious are you??

well i recently saw a thread for "you know how old you are if"

so consider yourself a serious rc racer if you find yourself
doing the following:

cleaning unburned solder off every solder joint

cutting the comm every run

cleaning the dirt out of the inside of your rims

rebuilding your car after every practice/race day

place your body pins in exactly the same order as all the other

re-organise your pit halfway through the race day

have you name/team engraved into your tools

clean your body using expensive motor spray

clean all the buttons and switches on you chargers/high tech
equipment with metholated sprits just to get rid of the dirt.

consistently put your soldering iron on the sponge even if it isnt dirty just to hear the fizzing sound.

put tire warmers on your tires even if your not at the track

spend a long time making sure all your tools have the label up at you.

re-align the brush hoods every 3 runs

stick stickers on to your "team associated" t-shirt or jumper

spend a lot of time and money trying to make your pit look "pro"

have to buy every new bit for your car even if it does nothing

have more than 4 pit towels

put a hardboard onto your already hard surface table

listen to music on your walkman for "inspiration" just before your race!

so do any of you guys do this?

Just not the electric stuff (I race nitro) and I've got only 3 pit towels... I guess I'm sane.
