It's either my "NuthinFancy91" personalized EDS tools, or my Team BlueGroove RC racing shirt. The shirt is especially cool when someone asks who Bo Johnson is, and what he races.

I have been extra happy with my Clockwork Racing Engine support. Neal (Maximo on these forums) rocks! Losi has also offered me exceptional support and that is why Losi and Clockwork will get additional business from me!

PS: this is a good thread.

Been doing this hobby since before the RC10 came out...

I would have to say Spread spectrum technology.... Geez, no more messing with crystals, no more someone getting on your channel and messing things up for you....
