Awesome!!!!

I've been racing forever. I don't hit much anymore, but I've found that now, when I hit something, I REALLY make it count. I have the ability to break even the newest/strongest plastics.

I can vouch for that. Ian is a master at "re-kitting" a car in one easy step.

Since you've been racing "forever", maybe you belong in Bob's museum? Or at least you deserve your own wing.

I still have my TRC Pro-10 from back in 1991. I also still have all the electronics, motors and batteries. I think it is time for a restoration!! Mine still has the plastic I-beam on it. Plus a custom oval chassis that I made...LOL it is nice!

Hmm, does he eat much? What kind of maintenance are we talking here?

I'm restoring two pro-10's right now. The one I want to have done by Monday to coincide with the re-release of a few old 235mm bodys. I'm amazed at how much longer it takes to do compared to slapping a kit together to run. And building a vintage shelf queen takes longer than a vintage runner. It's interesting.

Not sure, as I've only watched him eat a hot dog, once.

Maintenance? I'll guess "high".

You don't get a physique like mine by not eating much

As for maintenance, I would probably say "high" as well.
