Hello, the pro driver salaries are not my concern as I stated below.

I am not a tough guy - I just dissaprove of you running your mouth about how much money you make and insulting anyone making $70K a year in any city/state. I happen to also live in California where the median house price is $450K. I own my own home and have a professional job such as you. So please stop bragging about your salary, have some respect for the working class, and act like a PROFESSIONAL!!

Tall Can,
I'm not sure if I follow your post. Did you have an interview with one of the r/c manufacturers then turn down their offer since you didn't like the salary? I'm not looking to start anything here (this thread is already volitile enough!) I just couldn't follow your post. I think I was sensing some sarcasm in your post, but I didn't know what you were getting at. I myself am absolutely adicted to this hobby and often thought about trying to get a job with one of the r/c companies. I'm a chemical engineer, so I think the only ones that could use my services would be one of the fuel manufacturing companies. I have no idea what they pay their engineers or if the people that work for them enjoy their jobs. I of course, as many others do, like to think working for one of these companies would be like living in a dream world.....Go to work, make at least the national average salary for your particular expertise, get free equipment, and of course get to go racing all the time!

Anyways, back to the original topic: I've been reading this thread simply because I was hoping that someone with the actual info. would post. I'm just too curious! I've always speculated, but I've never known the actual numbers. Of course, the people with the info won't give it up! Not like that's a bad thing.... us curious people are just dying to know! I always assumed if you are talking about the top 20-30 in the world, those guys will have multiple sponsors. Each one probably pays them a small salary and incentives for doing well. My guess was always between 100-200K... but in reality I don't have a clue. When people mention 40-70K, I assumed that would be from one sponsor (probably the chassis sponsor), but these guys probably make money from a variety of different resources. I'd love to know though the overall number after all incentives and all salaries from the multiple sponsors.

Jhyten. I am not sure if your post was directed at me, or not. Your comments did not strike a nerve with me, nor did my comments intend to offend you. I am thankful I have a job, and am thankful I make the money I do. How many points do you charge on your loans. I have some mobile home clients I can send you.

2. I am much more intelligent
3. We can compare tax returns and i guarantee i make more money than you
4. And to top this all of you couldnt even beat me up if you wanted to!

if you make so much money why do you live in victorville, i used to live up there and i can tell you victorville is a joke, if you really had money and lived in the desert you would live in apple valley or oak hills and if you tell me you live in spring valley lake thats the biggest joke i can think of and i now understand why your so full of yourself. now i would like to respond to this thread, that when kinwald had his name on everything including motors he was bringing in 100k a year but that is not fact just hear say. but i can tell you the more pro drivers get paid the bigger the hobby will be. if any driver signed a 1,000,000 contract you could bet the popularity of r/c would go thru the roof just like motorcross. right now people don't believe you if you tell them that someone gets paid to race toy cars.
