1. Ya imediately go back to RC racing that she made you quit.
2. Turn her prized dinning room table into your new work bench.
3. Move the air compressor and drill press into the house so you dont have to make trips out to the garage.
4. Laugh your ass off in court when she askes for her prized hand made table (made by me) cuz you get to tell her you drilled a hole in it fixing your chassis and it now has a big burn on the edge from your soldering iron.
5. Oh yea and the sun room you spent 2 weeks fixing up now houses a compressor, drill press, and 3 small block chevys.
6. HER car that SHE paid for (with my money) breaks down cuz she didnt take care of it and you get to tell her "Im sorry I dont have time to fix it right now Im trying to get ready for a race, maybe you should find a boyfriend so you can call him to fix it for ya since I was "useless".

Theres alot more but I cant repeat some of them in a public forum

You swear that you can cut 3 minutes off of your morning commute if you just hug the corners a little tighter and brake later in the turn.

When instead of a pile of change sitting on the dryer in the laundry room, there a pile of body clips and wheel nuts.

When you go to SoCal on business for 3 months and you by chance go by a track and purchase just the basics kit, motor, tires and stick packs to tool around with because you dont want to ship your nitro TC stuff from NJ.

When you get hooked on elec TC in SoCal dump $7000 into 3 kits, parts to build 2 more, run stock Brushed, Stock BL and 19T Friday, Sat and Sun because you know when you get back to NJ the wife will put an end to racing every weekend.........

When you get the $350 shipping + $120 packaging bills to ship your $7k worth of TC back to NJ in (6) 24x24x18 boxes weighing 30lbs each which the wife believes you only spent $1500 bucks on

Ill let you know next week when UPS shows up if she still buys that one

There are odd parts of r/c cars and an instruction manual for a tc3 in your full size car... And I dont even use the tc3 anymore!

I'd say you're gonna be dead meat!


You're addicted to RC when you dont think you can wait another day if the postman doesn't come with your package today, and you're heart-broken and over-loaded with stress if he doesn't! Then when you get it, its the best thing thats ever happened to you
