You know you are addicted to R/C when you name your first born son Bo Link and your second born daughter Tammy Tamiya.

When you spend so much time racing at the hobby store that they offer you a job, and then when you leave to go to school, the LHS goes out of business. It's probably because my paycheck always went back into the store!!!

When you offer to tune a customer's car for free (instead of for $15/hour) because you've never driven a car like his, and you want to borrow it.

When people pay you to race their car instead of yours over a weekend, so that when you're done, the car is dialed!

Default Addiction

ya know when you're addicted when
Looking around for a house, and hope you get to make a spare room the "RC room"...or hope you can convert the yard space to a track....now that would be a dream come true. Maybe even get the seller to give me a RC improvement credit on the sale price....

Another sign is when you strongly encourage other friends to buy RCs too even if they don't have time for it. You tell them that they will have time once they try it.
