I currenlty have all six of my RC cars, Losi Ten T, XXX-SCB, and all 4 of my Traxxas 1/16th models next to my side of the bed in our bedroom. My wife is getting upset about them being in our bedroom; she says they don't go with the decor!!!!???? She wants me to put them in the cold, lonely garage. Nope, I need to have my "babies" next to me. Who knows, I may be sleeping in the garage soon!

I was dying some wheels black, and found an old hat to throw in the pot as well. Since the hat was never washed and a few years old, once dropped into the RIT dye/boiling water, it let out a smell of unholy stinkness that engulfed my little condo. The dye itself has kind of putrid smell to it anyways.

I had a bright idea to clean all the parts on my slash. While I had it apart I decided to put it in the dishwasher(that will get it real clean). Execpt for the dyed red tires I put in there too, which dyed the inside of my dishwasher pink.

rc cars go great with any decour, she wants to hang foofy stuff, hang a wrench right beside it, I'd recommend light weight tools, since she could use them against you later. or paint all the bodies to match her color scheme and say your trying to compromise.

This made me laugh. I have never thought to put my rc parts in the dishwasher. Hmmm....

My wife gets mad at me every time I get a little package in the mail... but it makes my postal lady happy.

ok for you old timers here! Back in the day before modern ESC they had wiper type speed control that was hooked up to a servo. well I was running my Tamiya Falcon out in the front yard and the speedo plates welded themselves together WFO. I saved my car by running into my GF ankle! I was worried about the car..

You guys are too much lol... Here is one for you; I left a gallon of nitro sitting on the shelving unit in the garage. Then I had to run to the store, as I'm coming back I see the EX on top of her F150 scrubbing the shiit out of the windshield...I asked what are you doing, she says I filled my windshield washer fluid but it's all greasy....no more need to be said.
