I agree and there is where the hobby shops must do a better job of understanding their customers. I have watched a hobby shop sell a RTR to someone who had no logical reason to try and run it. It was doomed for failure when they left the shop. All the customer heard was "it'l do 50 mph right out of the box". They neglected to say, it doesn't drive itself so a lot of practice is needed.

You will find, That people like different things, have different opinions, and tend to think they have the freedom to express their views, The deciding factor on merit isn't whether or not you agree with their view or not.

Or are you trying to say otherwise?

That aside, Your either a child or an idiot, and going by you're name your not a child.

so explain it to me again would you?
because according to your rant you're allowed to have an opinion and state it but I am not?

that's ironically idiotic if you ask me

Sad.

Alright, As much as I have no time for this infantile crap, My posts were about the crawler, Your posts were directed at people who don't hold your view.

The post you described as a rant was in reply to that position.

Shame on me for being brought down to this (your) level.

1/18 scale. that would be a very interesting crawler.

but light weight? thing is.. crawlers do better when they have some meat to them. they don't need to go fast so why use light weight parts? I can see this thing falling about two feet and breaking into about three parts.

you have no right making comments in which you chastise others for making

As I said earlier, I'll continue to be unimpressed without giving a damn if you think I should be allowed to say so or not.

If you wish to make personal comments you will get a reaction, Though I had anticipated it would all go over your head, as it has quite obviously done. So, This continued dribble is not unexpected.


Never fear, I won't respond again. Lmao.

Metla - you really need to grow up or find somewhere else to hang out. Clogging up the threads with your troll-like comments serves no purpose.
