I don't worry about all that. I know I'm going to get lapped anyway!

i am quite short and female but that shouldnt mean that i cant have a nitro car
I think I would ask your mom to borrow a bunch of cash for a couple hours.Go back to the shop . flash the cash, I bet they get whatever you want for you.Then after it is all on the counter and rung up , about the time the jerks who were being dongs to you asked for payment I think my response
would be" Oh silly me, that's right , this hobby store only sells nitro gear to tall men.I guess I will take this pile of cash to the store across town where they dont care how tall or what sex I am.." and then I would walk out of there so they could ponder what dillholes they are putting back all the gear that they could have sold to you. I have had a similar thing happen to me and it really pisses me off when people assume things based on your appearance. I work with dirt,I am a landscaper.so quite often I look for lack of a better word like a bum when I am out and about working so I get treated like a dirt poor bum most of the time.Get followed by store security in stores etc. so I know how much things like that can piss you off.

lol, well if you're cool with that and having fun that's the main thing

Some guys can't take loosing too well, and the harder they try winning, the quicker they fail at it

As for me, well if i'm doing well, that's good. If i'm not, I can always get quicker, right?

Tell me about it! We've got a trust fund baby at our track that throws cubic dollars at racing. You should hear him if someone new passes him. At first it was weard but now it's funny/sad. But thats why I can't wait 'till Sat. nite!

Only the true die hards keep at the racing.

The rest with more money than sense either run out of money, or loose what little sense they had...
