You know you have issues when you skim and rebrush the motor in your vaccum cleaner at home after every run

How about when you start a business because it will save you money and travel expenses for RC trips

You take over a hobbyshop/track because it just wasn't open enough hours for you to practice.

You own a hobby shop so you get all the parts at cost.

When two people fill up an extended grand caravan to the ceiling even after taking out all the seats except the driver and passenger seat.

When you get mad at your 12th scale and have CRC overnight one to your hotel room to put together for the 2nd round of qualifying

You have so much RC stuff that it will no longer fit in the 1200 sq foot basement so you rent a 15000 sq foot building LMAO

You own two businesses, but you have to live at home w/the parents because you still spend too much money on RC Stuff.

When you spend $25000 in one year on RC stuff and racing.

When you have so many parts in one big box that you'd rather buy a new part off the wall then spend the next 30 minutes digging through your parts box for one part.

When you have your mother and brother go on a trip with you to vegas because that's the only way you could carry 8 bags of RC stuff with you and it cost less than shipping it all. (No lie) and I still have to ship two boxes of stuff to the hotel LOL

When you spend $5000 on tires for you RC cars in one year and think nothing of it (that's at dealer cost lol) and you gripe about putting a $800 set of Tires on your Trans Am every 4 years

When your Race trailer gets broken into and they steal your laptop, generator, dvd's, PS2, etc. totaling $7000 and you are thankful that they didn't take your 8th scale buggies or your radio.

When you consider putting additive on your 1:1 cars tyres just to see what effects it has on the handling...
