31 years old now, Started racing in 20+ years ago, Probably $60,000+ over the years. I'm fine with it though, stayed out of trouble, addiction free, met lots of great freinds, had alot of fun, worth every penny.

I am 33 here, soon to be 34.

I have no idea how much I have into this hobby. I have good equipment with 3 cars. I have a FT B4, FT T4, and FT GT.

I have tires/wheels out the wazzzu, a nice comm lathe, spare parts, spare engine, clutches, wheels, nuts, screws etc etc etc....The list goes on and on and on and on......pretty sad, I know.....

I would say that I have around 3 large into this hobby

15, started 3 years ago. About $3500 into the hobby. Looking to spend more when I start working for mt Dad ($300 a week!) and after the summer I hit 16, get a car hopefully (Nissan) and a job so I can spend my money on my S15 and my other addiction besides crack.
