Default I am hooked really bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Geeeezzz!!!!!!!!!!! This hobby is so addicting.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I decided that the kitchen table wasnt going to cut it anymore for a wrenching table. I went and rented a cargo van today just so I could clear my garage to set up a shop.

2 cargo loads later and lot of organizing I now have room to set up shop. I went and checked out Sears. Wow they have some nice stuff. Although I didnt purchase anything my plan is to buy piece by piece. Total cost for the new shop $1,500. I am planning on getting the work table and the back wall tomorrow.

Is there somehting wrong with me??????????????????????????????????

Your more than welcomed. I am having trouble deciding between a 5 ft table or an 8 ft table. They both have pros and cons.

If i go with the 5 ft i will have room to install standing matching storage.

If i go with the 8 ft obiviously this is mork work space and looks awesome.

Keep in mind i only have a 2 car garage modern style so its really a one car garage.

Im def. feeling the addiction as well. i bought the Losi 8t RTR kit bout six months ago. I bought the ofna truggy box for it and started racing. Dude, i have a list on A-main right now that is over 1800 bux that i want to have in my pit bag and all things R/C, alot of it is tools, motor, personal trans., just general stuff, i can't believe how fast it adds up, but im all for it hahah. I use to race motocross and was teh same way. I had to have a new bike every year, new gear, helmet, boots, etc. etc.. haha, funny part is, i switched to nitro r/c to save money, yeah right!!

motoclay ER bills & time off work make this a much cheaper hobby.

dishsoap your problem is obvious! You have 1 too many cars in the garage.Kick the fullsize to the curb then you'll have room to roll your RC across the floor to check steering centering.Dont forget room for the drill press & belt sander you'll have to have.

Why the **** did you need a new bike each year? That's just crazy.

I got a new bike every other year. 2001 RM 250, 2003 CRF 450, First 2006 YZ450f my dealer got.

I only had one injury during all that took time away from work, and it was only bout 4 days. But yeah, it was exspensive. Harder work, needed more room for wrenchin, just all around, this R/C stuff scratches my racing itch with out breaking the bank!

Everyone that I know that races get the newer model each year, not only are they better, but you get to start fresh
