Oops, got to go.

I don't mind the time, but I recently had to destroy my credit card (I only used it for online shopping) and delete my online shop links, in order to STOP ORDERING RC STUFF!!! ...in an effort to spend less money - I hope this will work!

you're addicted to r/c when you use Paragon to get traction back into the rollers in your computer printer when it doesn't feed right.

when you post in a thread like this...

when someone says max and you think Tmaxx...

when you bring parts to the track that aren't for your car...

when you say street cars are 1:1...

maxx, when you think i spelt that right...

When you're in class and your teacher says revolution and you remember you have to cut your orion revolution #3719...

When you have a rollout chart for ever gear ration and size of tire for your car and your buddies' cars too...

when you have a track in the backyard or basement...

when you are pissed off that someone bumped your car and you scraped that new custom $150 body...

when you lay awake in bed and think of your set-up...

when RC takes up your whole basement...

when you can tell me what changing to piston number 2 and using a white spring will do to my handling...on any car...

when you read everything i just typed and laughed...

when your LHS doesn't get the T2 you ordered because RC America didn't get the shipment in last week. dam container is in atlanta not houston. I could drive to atlanta and get it in 3 hours. so you call up www.stormerhobbies.com and order one NEXT DAY AIR so I can build it this weekend and race it sunday at the club race before I go to the nats next week.

LMAO!! I just had that happen tonight! My friend and I were at CEFX raceway and Josh said, "You guys about ready to go? It's after 9..." "But I've got my setup nailed and the car is totally dialed! Do I have to go??"

You know you're addicted to R/C when...you find yourself doing maths homework at the track...and then wonder if you can calculate the equation for the parabola that will give you the fastest line around that 180" corner!
