Hmm I might have everyone beat as far as cars I've "owned and raced" for the past "one" year.

415-->Yokomo BD-->EvoIV-->TA05-->FK05-->415MSX-->Surikarn Cyclone

So far I have sold the 415, Yok, and FK05. The longest car I've had and still have is the EvoIV... goin on 2 years. Great car, but the EvoV is coming out next month..

Alright, if you want to be that way... You started it...

I only put cars up from this past carpet season, in the past 2 seasons, let's see here...

Yokomo SD --> EVOIV --> Yokomo SD --> TC4 --> Yokomo SD again --> BMI TC4 --> Factory Team TC4 --> FK05 --> Mi2 EC --> T2 --> 415MSX --> TBA

Each time I switched to the Yokomo, it was the same car. And I still have it. I made the A in stock with it at SnowBirds 2 years in a row and didn't change the setup. Then I switch to an Xray and do horrible at big races. Who knows on that one. I might just break out the old Yok for real just to get some laps on it. I tried it a couple times at Horsham, but I never really worked on the car to get it going.

Who knows what car is next. I've been thinking Corally - but I always want to be the different guy. Sure, it hurts when you have no help, but when you dial the car in, you feel pretty good about it.

My stable still includes...

Yokomo SD - Close to Race Ready
BMI TC4
Schumacher Mi2 EC Carpet Spec - Race Ready
XRay BMI T2 - Race Ready
Tamiya 415MSX - Race Ready

Maybe I should just get rid of all but one just for concentration purposes.

I won't race because they need to be rebuilt. Well, I sold my 1/12th scale- so now I can rebuild my two TC's.
