wow dude.....thats sad.

im younger than you and i actually work for my cars. my bk2 was bought with saved money i had. motors for it was bought by me. batteries were bought by me. i worked hard for my cars. so heres some advice:

1. get a job of somesort. start making your money and buying your own stuff.
2. don't put posts up saying you have all this cool stuff and asking for free stuff.

it's nice to get a gift once and a while(for i.e. my ad2) but don't feel like your always going to get free stuff.

These kids would want to show up, punch a time card and have their friends come visit, talk on their cell phones and then they would complain if they didn't get a raise if they lasted six weeks. Now obviously I know there are a lot of teen agers who are good workers and have good work ethics. I've hired a few of those too. I'm talking about the overwhelming majority. And this putz who's on here begging for free stuff is EXACTLY what I'm talking about!

Hey Text, go thank your parents for at least attempting to teach you the value of a dollar by not giving you every single thing you ask for you spoiled little brat!
Ya, I hear ya. I'm 14, and yes my parents pay for some of my stuff. YES, I am spoiled, but I help out and go to work with my dad and work on cars, and basically help him out(without his supervision though). So I do kinda work, but I just don't pay for the stuff. It's kinda like a "I don't get the money up-front, but I still get it in return" kinda idea. I do agree with everyone else. You should go around town, and work. You will feel better about yourself, and be more proud of the equipment you have .

I'm 15 and I bought my own JRXS with expensive batts and charger to run it and a 3PK to go along with it. All that cost me $670. Get out and buy your stuff. You will take more pride in your equipment rather than mommy buying your things. Also, we all get stuff for X-Mas or our B-day, even my dad did: he got a Harley Softail. I got a Matrix this year but I am going to buy all the things to race prep it (which is about $1200 worth of stuff). Moral: Work, buy and pride. Not Beg, Cry, and cry, and cry...
