Cool New Guy

Hello all, just joined the forum. My name is Bill and I'm from Maryland. I've been into the hobby for about 30 years (I'm 42) and I'm mostly into vintage off road stuff and restorations, but I do own a couple of newer kits as well. I'll post up some pics once I have a few posts under my belt.

Welcome Bill!

There's tons of valuable information and helpful people on this forum

I've only been in the hobby about a year, and I've learned so much here

Can't wait to see some RCs!

Welcome to the fun loving dysfunctional family called RC Tech. I just met you and can already tell you like big tires and that's cool with me. Look forward to seeing you and your RC adventures on the The official Useless "I have nothing better to do thread"

Thanks folks!! I'm primarily a monster truck guy, but I like them all really. I really enjoy fixing up the older stuff. I do what I can and none of them are perfect, but I have fun doing it.

Stock piece, though it looks pretty easy to make if you wanted.
