Your addicted when you think at least one of these threads has more drama and is more entertaining than the daytime soap operas.

You know your addicted when you make your work schedule around club racing, different race series, and big races (even if not attending to watch online) before you take in consideration of any family outings and events.

You know you’re addicted to RC when…

You stick you left over stickers on your 1/1 car
You compare the price of food items to the price of tires and parts
You remember “Race Anniversaries”, and then celebrate them
You have a 1/50 scale car you drive around on your desk at work.
You read this thread and go: “yup….yup….yup…that one too…. Hmmm, That’s good idea…yup…yup…”
Your car sits on the dinner table, during dinner…

You see non RC related items in any hardware store or convenience store and try and figure out how you can incorporate it into your gear. The crazier thing is that you do it and it not only gets into your equipment but you make it work no matter what.........

HAHA, I forgot about this thread I made last year.

..when you think about R/C all day long, every day.

..when you keep thinking why people "sell out" of rc? lol

..when you clean your radio with a toothbrush and water.

..when you try to come up with better ways to organize your car hauler/pitbox/totes and to have it in teh order you pack up at night.

..when you wash your pit towels before your clothes

..when you would rather spend your money on R/C then maintaining your real vehicle

..when you put off re-newing your license plates so you can buy R/C stuff causing you to drive around with bad tabs...

Ill get some more
