Just wanted to say hi

New to RC Tech. And on here because I just recently decided to pickup 1/10th scale touring car and f1.

I haven't driven an rc since 19 years ago and that was 1/10th scale off road.

Default Hey guys

My name is Joe, I am new to this forum and wanted to say hello. I used to have a nitro Traxxas Russler and a Traxxas electric 4 Tec about 7 years ago and I stopped because I didn't have much time for the hobby anymore. I'm glad to say I miss the hobby and I want to make a comeback! This time I want something a little better. I want to learn the hobby way better then I did before. So I hope I can learn a lot through all of you and I hope you can have the patience for me, Thanks -=o)

Hi, my name is Bob and I really don't want to talk about it. I've been off it for 20 yrs. Now my kids want me to start again. I tell them I can't start again, cause I don't know which gutter I'll end up in.

I had this LMNOP cool plane, with an XYZ engine. Then got into boats with a nice ABC vortx hyper transaxle doohicky fortran hull. It rocked, til the mice got into it in the chicken coop...sucked.

My planes, cept the formentioned mice crap, had a duelly hydroplaned wing torch, which really ruled in 1986. Had that nice Dy-hedril form, with the mono duplex engine from K&B. Cept I kept waxing them with grass burn = sucked. Had to keep replacing the engines...the manufactures wouldn't replace them after I told them I did an inverted "T" in the ground.

So, I'm just gonna say, that ITS not my fault....but I have to keep dropping planes and un-freezing engines because I've not done this in +20 yrs.

~sits down~
