I'm 27 and I couldn't count how much I'ce spent in the last 3 years. I used to race when I was alot younger as well. No idea how much I spent then either.

There was a point a couple of years ago that I could go to any race that we had in our area (onroad or offroad) and race in any class. I had 14+ plus cars that were over $1000 complete. Plus all the support stuff, goodies, consumables, and fuel. Plus a radio habit of buying one, using it for 6 months, and then selling it to buy a new one.

I ended up getting a job at a hobby shop thinking it would be cheaper for me but I just end up with more crap in my pit box.

Bought all my cars with my money with the exception of my ST-1 which Ryan Maifield gave me. Got to keep my grades up to race. I marshall for people and get some things from that. But my parents help me out with almost everything else, but it isn't like they just give me the money, lots of chores and homework go into that.
