Default Group therapy.

Doctor: Very good sum guy. Ok, your turn.

Me: Hello, my name is Jessica. I'm 35.5 and I have an RC problem.

Group: Hello Jessica

Me: It all started 23 years ago in 1994 when my parents bought me a Stampede for Christmas.

Group: You poor thing.

Me: It only got worst when they and SoCal Raceway teamed up to get me my first XXT for Christmas 1995.

Group: So you had help getting this way?

Me: Yes. And it has been a very costly down hill ride from there. (Long pause) Doctor, is there any hope for me getting any better?

Doctor: Not a chance in Hll! Ok, you next.

Age is just a number. I still like my Rock n Roll LOUD and HARD ! I still like riding my quads at Mach 1 with my hair on fire ! I have more RC's then I like to admit and want more. I drink beer, I eat red meat and I own guns. No you can't have my Country, No you can't have my guns and No I don't want your handouts ! (57, but who cares)

Will be 71 in two weeks and opening an RC on road facility in Kannapolis NC. Sometimes I wish I had picked up a real bad drug habit instead of an RC car. At least then I would have been able get professional help to kick it instead of making it worse.

I'm 50, and just returned to the hobby after almost 20 years away. My 10 year old son wanted an rc MT for Christmas, and he absolutely loves it...then I needed one. Then I discovered that there's an amazing on-road carpet facility 50 miles form me (my drug of choice). So now I'm back.

I would love to make a road trip to NC to race! Post up a link if you have a web site!
