I heard the music of charger (the music of charging begin, end), and race starting tone ("da" tone) all the time during walking/working/TVing....

-when your in such denial about your RC spending that at anytime you can sell $1000 worth of racing gear, but one day later not even miss any of it, which makes you think-"OH JEEZ-how much stuff do I still have?"

-when you keep spare parts for a car you might buy again?

-when you buy almost every new car and spares just to try them.

-when you hope you win the lottery so you can build the ultimate RC/kart/hobbyshop first, then worry about the house, new cars, invetment later.....

-when major purchases for the home are tempered with "Now-do I need any cash for any upcoming races?"

Hoo-Hong, If I ever win the lottery, you and everyone you know will be making the trip to Springfield. I already have the floorplan established, and a site mapped out. All I need is the investment capital, for my indoor 1/8th scale asphalt, indoor carpet, and Gentlemen's Club entrepeneurial(sp?) endeavor.

I have a stop watch for every 5 minutes coffee pit time at work......creamer, sugar and coffee within 5 second per stop....pretty impressive I think. Each work day came with eight 1 hour main or 16 30 minutes main.........

And every time I use the calculator..........I ended up calculating the roll out or the F/R foam tires split calculation after an 1 hour main......

Talking

A sign that you are addicted to R/C racing is that you didn't have to read any of the posts in this entire thread to know that you do every single thing previously mentioned.


Sickos.

And then almost 1 hour later, still at work, having finished reading the entire thread and realized... yep, I didn't have to read that whole damn thing to know I'm not the only one who has serious mental issues, and needs to have professional help.







We have real problems, boys.

The treads of your tires are almost gone but your foam tire stocks are still good for this race season.

You know you have issues when you buy pinions you know you will never need just so that you have a complete set of each type and colour
