Since I'm going to die anyway I might as well have as much fun while I can!

Thats why I race R/C.
The proved that bacon causes cancer too... they fed lab rats the equivilant of 600# of bacon a day and they got cancer.

I figure if you eat 600# of bacon a day you're going to die from something else long before you get cancer... soo... I'll keep eating bacon every once in a while... and keep racing nitro.

It's not the quantity of life it's the quality. I rather live 60 years doing what I love then 80 years doing nothing.

I feel without a doubt though nitro is worse compared to electric and the soldering etc. Soldering maybe once every month is no where near as bad as sticking you head down near your pipe well you tuning the carb. But in no way am I going to stop running nitro because of it. I am sure yes your body would be better without it. I know many people after running a nitro event indoors with ventalation that after the event that have a huge headache and feel sick.

You must solder a different way than everyone else. There is not that much smoke in soldering even if you do it all day long so it does not matter if you do it inside or not. Hell 1 cigerette has more smoke than soldering all day does
