Be real, RC cars are loud. My little Novarossi .12 wails when its WOT going down the street. You got to respect your neighbors. If I'm tuning, It's for very short times and I save the rest for the track.

They shouldn't.

The people who live across the street from my parents have one of those little green plastic stand-up figures holding a bright orange flag. She puts it out when her kids are outside.

That thing pisses me off to no end because it says several things:

- Watch out for my kids because I'm not watching out for them
- It is YOUR responsibility to watch out for my kids because I absolved responsibility by putting the flag out
- My kids will be in the street because they lack discipline
- I believe my kids can go wherever they want and it is YOUR job to see that they are safe, wherever they may be

When I was a kid my parents made it abundantly clear that I was to never go in the street and if I did it was my fault if I got run the hell over.

If you don't want your kid, or their toys getting hit by a car make sure they stay in the yard. Put them on a leash if you suck as a parent - but do something resembling "your job".

Thats true, my mom used to get on my ass if I ever played in the street.

I spoke with two people who saw everything. The truck was on the sidewalk......The witch drove her Tahoe (or her broom) onto the sidewalk and ran it over.

Both the kid and his Dad were outside. The kid was not in the street nor was he alone.

This was just a bad deal no matter how you look at it.

So she used her car as a weapon. Cops should have been called on this one. At his point if cops werent called these people are hiding some problems.

There has been a report put in. In a big city, the cops do not worry about stuff like this. There main concern is busting drug dealers, etc. ............That is a good thing.

You know what a bad deal is?? How about you selling me a Micro-T on October 24th plus sending me extras to help your brother audio1(scammer) because he ripped me off! That never made it to my house and then on November 8th saying you are sending another one. Don't have that one either! On November 19th you are sending yet another Micro! November 21st I am told I will be getting a refund from you and you will take care of the $$ your bro scammed out of me as well. It is now the 29th and I still have nothing. I would like to know what is going on, can you set the record straight here?

Hey "Dubum".......Get your stuff straight. I have in contact with you since day one. A person who does others wrong will run.....NOT STAY IN TOUCH.

*********Look at all my feedback before making a conclusion as you did*********.
