Hell, and some gloves so they dont fray their delicate sissy hands, maybe some steeltoes so they dont break a toenail...

My god, why is society turning into a bunch of pussys?!

Do it raw you risk catching lung infections or even pneumonia from the dust and exhaust fume, not to mention the cuts, bruises and burns from handling the vehicles...

Play it safe you might lose some style as one cool dude?

The choice is yours...

Call me a sissy or whatever you want. As a person with asthma, it can be hazardous to be around these fumes, dust, etc. I have learned a little trick... Simply get a wet bandanna and wear it over the lower part of my face- from the nose down. When it dries out, remove, rinse, squeeze, and put back on.

'nuff said.

ive been in this hobby for 20 years, never had a lung infection, never had pneumonia, in fact, never anything wrong with me.

If you're worried about some minor cuts/bruises/burns, maybe you need to consider another hobby? perhaps knitting sweaters and blankets? but then again, you seem like the "windowlickin and ear biting" type, so you may stab yourself with a hypodermic needle and get the HIV!

Sissy.

You may want to take up a new hobby like the above fellow, Do you honestly think a wet bandana is going to filter the fumes/dust/air particles? no, congradulations, now your breathing in the same objects, with a cold wet bandana on your face looking like a Retard train robber

well, i dont think its a must if the track is dusty and dry i mean i raced at a "outdoor track' during the summer and it was like that dued to no rain at all but the dust dint bother me and the other racers dint seem to care they just wanted to race.


the, only guys i saw wearing a mask is 2 speckters but if the dust brothers you its up to you if you want to wear one but man there uncomforble.

dirt dust wont kill you .

oh yea im healthy as can be from dust from dirt and some nitro fumes .

when your racing anyways do you actaully think gee i think i should wear a mask lol.
i know i dont.

Keywords of the day!!! Never had does not mean never will.

It is like saying, you never met an accident so there is no need to wear a seat belt...

For some of us, we enjoy our little hobby and we have a family to take care as well, taking care of our health is taking care of the family.

Btw, if you pick up knitting, you still can cut yourself...

Protected or unprotected, it is entirely up to individuals but I won't call someone sissy just because they chose to wear some form of protections.

Perhaps you missed the part, where i said ive been in this hobby for 20 years? id think, if it were going to happen, it would have already, ask ANY seasoned R/C guy about using a dustmask/respirator, and you will be laughed at.

now, normally i dont care what people think of me or if they judge me, but wearing a mask isnt going to help you. the shit you breathe in everyday is FAR worse, the shit you eat is FAR worse, and the shit you drink is FAR worse.

Ps, i made a cutting your self comment, re read

Well if you put it that way, I will still wear finger protections if I pick up knitting...

As I said, it is entirely a personal preference. I won't call someone a sissy for wearing one and at the same time I won't call you a retard for not wearing one.

Yeah it actually does. Humidifying air before you breathe it cuts down on inhaled dust. I learned this riding motocross, but I guess you wouldn't know that. have fun with your little sc10 and come back when you get a big boy car and/or have something to contribute. Ass.

Make sure you turn on spell checker too, idiot.

I am a Farm Boy and have seen more Dust in One Day then most of you guys will see in your Life time of racing Rc and it has never hurt me. Try running a tractor in the summer Bush Hogging now thats DUST.

Now all the fuel fumes could mess you up but thats just part of having fun.

IMO a pit mask is smart. I would be the last to be seen wearing one at the track though. Being a indoors welder then going to dust a nitro every friday night i breathe gnarly stuff for long time periods. Honsetly i can feel the diffrence when not around welding and dirt to just fresh air and its great. But smog kinda kills the fresh air aswell, I dont see it causing to many issues at the track as it for me is outdoors once a day, me personally im more worried about the daily work im doing....
