🏆 I believe this is yours my friend 😋 you literally brought a tear to my eye bravo 👏👏👏

I have it great. I've been married 22 years. My wife doesn't mind my rc habit. When we meet I was racing sprint cars (1:1). Now I race electric on road. She loves it. No more chances of dieing and only about 20% of the cost of real cars. The other cool thing is.... My wife doesn't have brothers. Well she does now. My rc buddies have adopted my wife as their sister. They all love her. She takes care of all of us at the track. Feeds us and makes sure we all are taken care of. Rc has made my married life better. Well great friends in rc has made my married life better.

Everyone have fun and race!

On top of that they're adults, both likely have jobs, and have EARNED THE RIGHT to spend their disposable income on what they want. Many of us in here were your age at one time or another, and likely had the same mind set about what parents buy. To question why "mom" buys herself a new couch falls on deaf ears to adults in here, but you won't really understand until you're older and have kids of your own.

Not busting on you, just some insight from an "old man" with kids near your age
my parents dont spend jack on my r/c's unless its a holiday or my birthday! i earn every last dollar i spend on this hobby

Just found this thread, and this is maybe the most pefect example of the exact excuses to continue racing that I've been using. The better half is cool with my spending(within reason....) but hates the time devoted to the hobby........guess you can't win all the time.

If we were smart...we would teach our better half to wrench their own rides and maybe ours too
Then they can't complain about how much time we spend in the "hobby room".

To teach and get them to wrench on your car too, you better spend a lot of time working in the room, and not the hobby room.

My wife has no clue lol. I have so much RC stuff laying around... The bright side is that my 3yr old son LOVES to "help" me wrench on stuff, hold screws, push the cars around the house. I think it's worth the time I spend with my son when he's not glued to a tv or something. I've recently started having him push his tonka truck to chase my 1/10 SCT around the yard. Added bonus that he goes all out and ends up exhausted before the battery pack is dead. But yeah, I have a paypal account that gets replenished via funds I make doing IT work on the side or selling/trading RC/computer stuff.

+1 for bonding time with son.

Nice thread ressurection! Thought I was alone... hahhahhahahaaa.... better than being at the bar, especially with a strip club closer than the track! My fiance tries to ride my tail about what I spend on r/c. But since she doesn't have a job, I don't listen!

I'm another one of the lucky ones that doesn't have to hide the hobby from the wife. She has no problem helping me out, ordering parts, or even running with me at home just bashing around. She has her own Slash and Stampede to mess with. I know she gets a little annoyed when I have to spend alot on something big but she understands, and she has her own things to spend money on anyway lol. Almost every time shes ordering online she turns to me and says, "do you need any RC parts since I'm on here?" Lol!

If you are sensible with what you buy in RC I don't honestly believe there's in any harm in keeping quiet with your partner how much you're spending.

Especially if they don't mention how much they are spending on clothes, shoes, cosmetics etc
