Default @#$% THIEVES!

So Iam at my local outdoor track today with my son, running my TMAXX 2.5, I get everything set up on the sidewalk area ( its a public outdoor track ran by the city ), I start running it for about ten minutes, stop, do some more adjustments, than run it for like 5 minutes. I turn around to see what my son is up to, and I cant find him. So I take off looking for him, probably like3 minutes, find him watching the kids at the bmx part, tell him the fatherly thing, you know, TELL ME WHERE YOU ARE GOING!!! Anyway, I get back to the RC track, and guess what? Not a damn thing left! They even took one of my sons toys! I know its my fault, but Damn! I asked one older guy up there if he saw anyone by my truck, he replies, yep, thought he was a friend of yours! Just tells me it was a white guy probably in his 30's! I leave to go to Afghanastan on the 18th of this month, and this really blows! If anyone sees it on the postings in here, please let me know!@#$% THIEVES!-againn.jpg

@#$% THIEVES!-again.jpg I cant get my pictures bigger, but it is a red tmaxx, rollcage, 2.5 motor. Thanks guys, sorry I had to vent! Forgot to mention, I did call the police and wrote out a statement!

Thanks guys, I really appreciate it! It just sucks, I gave away a Traxxas rustler to a jid that used to hang out there all the time, because he could not afford a car and I was not using it. It just sucks when people steal! I always try to help. Just sucks you know what! I swear, when i get back, I will babysit whatever I bring up there!

One thing that I just thought of is you can contact all the local hobby shops and have them keep an eye up for someone that brings in "your" truck asking for help with it. I think there are a few hobby shops in Colorado.

Just a few common sense tips for you. Go to all your LHS and tell them to keep an eye out for it as a previous poster said. If he is new to the hobby he will need parts, fuel ect. Keep an eye on ebay if you see someone from your region selling one that looks like it ask some general questions and see if they sound shady at all. Check pawn shops and craigs list. File a police report if you haven't already.

Dude, I am just relieved it wasn't your son someone snatched! Take pics of your stuff and leave at all the places ( LHS, pawn shops, etc) for them to keep behind the counter. Get it done fast. Most crooks don't keep the loot in their possesion long.

You made the same choice I would have. Too bad there was someone willing to take advantage.

I got a few things to say to you, First off That does suck, and i'm sorry someone stold your stuff. 2nd does as many have said and let you lhs know he'll need help with it. and 3rd THANKS FOR SERVING OUR COUNTRY.



I got an idea on other forums (non r/c) we lend a helping hand for those in need. If 250 of us threw 2 dollars in a pot we could buy this brave soldier a new tmaxx. Anyone want to pony up and spend your coke money for tomorrow for a SOLDIER I know I'll throw 5 on it.

I run a forum and we've done this for a guy whose niece has leukemia, another guy who had something else go bad, etc. And when I was taken for $300 on a R/C scam, the guys got together without me knowing and came up with $300 for a Christmas gift.

Anyway, I'm all for this sort of thing. I'm in for $10.

I suppose we need someone to PayPal the money to. Perhaps armymedic himself.
