You know you're addicted to r/c when you wake up in the night before the "big race" in a sweat, wondering if you've left the front left wheel nut not tightened up enough...

But check it again in the morning anyway

Not done that myself, but I did overtighten a diff the night before, and snap the bolt.

Nothing unusual about that you might think, but my mentor at the time was like...

"don't overtighten the diff, it's easily done y'know"...

"Snap"

Here's my addiction list:

-You read this thread
-You use the term 1:1 at any time in daily speech to refer to your transportation vehicle
-Your wife no longer argues about buying more gear beyond the usual "And why do you need XYZ? Ok... how much does it cost? Have you paid the bills already?"
-You get "time saving" ideas from this thread
-Leaving your calipers at home is worse than forgetting to bring your radio [done both, doh!]
-You complain about gas prices, but not the cost of tires, and wouldn't consider staying home on race day just to save money
-The local hobby shop not only knows you by first name, but also knows the complete list of parts they've had on back order that you want, and gives you updates on the status of them before doing anything else, including stopping with their current customer to do so.
-You actively seek out newbies at club races because you know they won't mind you playing with their setup to get them faster, and you have nothing to do between heats besides peaking batteries, so...
-You can argue the pros and cons between any two setup changes to fix the same condition
-You know your local track so well that you only try baseline setups on a new kit as an unspoken courtesy, before changing it to what you know will work

I could go all night, still a fun thread

You know when you're addicted to r/c when you still cut comm's, purely to pass the time away...

I've done that, and also woken up just to check if my battery was unpluged...

Amongst other things.

You might be addicted if your past time hobby with this hobby is to disassemble NiMH packs and reassemble them again and see how much faster you can do it without warming up the cells.

What's sad is I am doing this now on my lunch break.

You know it's bad when your LHS sends you a personal thank you card for your "support" over the years.
