Default Classes how many kits do you have !!!!!

I've just got done buying more parts after doing some work on one of my kits also bought over two bills worth of part last week and a few hundred two week before that not alone all those things you shouldn't buy but you do cause your stupid that's in one month

Last night I was looking at all my kits do I need all these toys.

Two Nitro buggy
Electric buggy
Nitro truggy
Partial E truggy
AE SC8

Im considering sell all but two since I only run two class during a race. How many kits do you have and what classes do you run looking for comfort to help curve stupidity. I find myself on this site for hours per day its addicting its fueling my spending does anyone know of any RC tech phyciatrist

Two Losi LST2's.
1 1/2 Ofna DM-1's.
Nitro buggy(RC8.2).
AE SC8.

So, five running nitro 8th scale RC's.

Want a truggy, but don't have the money, space, or time. One reason things accumulate is that in the last 2-3 years resale prices have become so stupidly low that I just choose to keep stuff. And am constantly struggling to be more disciplined to not buy new stuff - especially engines. Being a sucker for a deal is one of my main "issues"..

2 nitro buggys
Nitro truggy
SCTE
E Buggy
E truggy
SC10, Slash and blitz (well they belong to my 4 yr old)
B3 buggy
E Max (needs an esc)
T Rex 600 (futaba 14mz)

All are in great working condition and I run most of them. I find that unless it's a very large event 3 classes is my limit and even at large races 3 classes is pleanty. I have done 4 before but man that really keeps you running and you have to constantly pray to the nitro gods that nothing breaks.
