lol, just over 13k in 3 years. but I buy from who's the cheapest and who's got it in stock since my LHS closed Between, stormer, absolute and other hobby shops, i'm sure it is pretty ugly...but it's worth it, I would have been out of RC probably if I had started 1/8 racing. 2012 is my 20th year racing been a traveling racer all over the country since 1998. Don't regret a minute of it.

Reading this made me think and I went back and added up my A-Main purchases... I wished I would not have because it was a little over $32,000 since Sept. of last year... This not include Infernos Only, LHS, Stormer Hobbies and RC Tech... My son and I love the hobby but it sure is expensive...

It'll add up fast,

I don't even want to know an exact number. If I kept track of everything I have spend since I started racing many many moons ago, I'd probably be able to buy a house outright in some places. Plus the wife already knows it's expensive, just doesn't need to know how expensive. LOL
