man i need to get out more. I thought i was going throught a lot of fuel this year. I just opened my 5th gallon. I only every other weekend in the spring and summer. On off weeks I try to get out and practise a little. I probably spend about 2-3 hours cleaning checking after race and maybe less after a practise unless i run it a lot.

About a gallon all year, that is why I just sold my nitro stuff. Too time consuming and I dont have the time to dedicate to it.

about 8 gallons in 09. mostly buggy and some truck and broke in 3 engines. I enjoy preperation as much as racing. from trips to store to charging batts to tear down and rebuild. i pay $25gallon sidewinder 30. i rebuild at least 1 diff out of every car once a week. rebuild shocks every gallon. after every race i strip to bear chassis on monday and put my clutch together day before every race while i charge batteries

that is hardcore, i have more time this summer with breaking in an engine, travel time to tracks and some weekly cleanup time.

i even went to a race 2 hours away, paid for a hotel room, woke up the next day to a bitching wife about racing, and stayed at the track all day to WATCH friends race. love it

it was good when i went home with a new traxxas sct from the raffle. i never touch that thing
