Thx all for your kind sympathy.

DIMO: ouch... thx for sharing the experience....

KE4PJO: as much as that's true... losing my car hurts... when you smell traction compound and no tires to use it on.... just get that empty feeling inside.

blackkat: its a ta04-trf. not your super high end car, but 3 years ago, it was the shxt. ssg double deck, front/rear sway bars, its still pretty competitive, when i slap my 10x1 v2 on there, along with my futaba mc800c speedy w/ all the caps, and diodes and stuff. just got ceramics for it because my steel bearings wore out after 3 years. but not sure what to do when i have a bearing that has no bearing guides inside them.

Keith billanti: I Wish I had a car to insure

vi3tishduy: i like your avatar. i am personally a tamiya guy (i have a tamiya bias), so 415ms all the way if you are going outdoor, w/ that new shocks kit, damn it rips. but ready to fork out the big bucks for it.

rcknight: not sure what your symbol means... sorry, i am slow....

Don't let this get you down. Looks to me like you have friends you haven't even met!!! It WILL get better! You've just got to weather the storm.

Years ago I saw a TV show and this guy was talking about how he almost took his life because everything sucked. He went into his room and when he turned on the radio, The Beatles song "Here Comes The Sun" was playing. He thought that if he could just get through that night and see the sun rising, it would be OK. He did and it was.

I saw that show almost thirty years ago and I can't tell you how many times I've had things go wrong, and I thought about that kid and the courage he showed. Helped me alot. I think of him every time I hear that song. Thanks kid, I know your out there somewhere. Let us know how things go.

Nope ! not gonna give you any "life stories" or lessons....

If you do, your balls will just fall out !

Bro. I totally understand how bummed out you can feel at times. But when I was in a similar situation, this is what I did:

Upon losing my job I realised that I no longer had the money to blow on my two main hobbies (RC and High-End PC building/overclocking)

So you know what i did??? I took apart my $4000+ PC and parted it out on ebay, in addition to my RC stuff. I made about $4300 total from selling all my stuff. This kept me aloat until i found a better job.

Once at my new job I simply started saving up all over again and was able to re-enter my hobbies anew, with fresh equipment to boot!

So in the end, sometimes you have to totally step away from your hobbies/passions. However you can always come back and as they say "there's no place like home."

Also, in the end, it's all just money. You'll always make more.

Chin up!
