I'm feeling actually like a low budget hobbiest compared to other some of you are CRAZY guess we all need help in different ways I really enjoy this sport it involves skill, tuning and patience its a great pass time that's way I'm always thinking about what I can buy next or what's the newest hop up whick will help you dial in your setup.

The newest item I just bought were the BCE chassis WOW awesome workmanship its going to help. Also I've been playing with the CSI pistons I really encourage everyone to gives these items a whirl. Now go spend some $$$$$

To my defence, Ive been racing for 12 years. And I rarely sell a worn out race chassis, since money value is very low.

And as Ive grown older I enjoy beeing able to follow my own race history and the evolution of cars and motors/engines over the years.

I usually buy one or two cars (for spares) each season (winter season/ summer season). When I switch to another brand, or a new platform (e.g. Hyper 8 to Hyper 9) I keep my retired race car on the shelf as it was on its last race, just thoroughly cleaned. Then I sell the parts car and all other parts I have for that chassis.

I have no problem admitting that Im addicted though
