Must be a misprint, cause $300 will barely buy a car, let alone any extras.

28, been in the hobby about 18 years. I did some figuring a few years ago and I was at close to 25K, I bet I'm pushing about 40K by now.

I would do it all over again too. Damn this addiction!

In just 1 year 3 to 4 thousand dollars but probably more and I'm already thinking about buying another RC soon
