When you hope for bad weather on sunday during the indoor-season so lots of people come to the track.

So that their wives dont want to go somewhere.

You know your onroad addict. When your driving your full size car and you try to maintain a racing line while exiting or entering the freeway.


Pass you soon...

Default I knew I had it bad when

I was outside running my car on the driveway, its 31 degrees, spitting snow and I have a pillow case over both the tx and my hands to keep them warm, (flannel, wife's favorite, doh!) As I was running the car around I wondered if the family would have me committed if I took down the b-ball backboard and sold the camper to extend the driveway another 15 feet just to run RC, (been married 29 years, know enough not to bring it up).

You know when you're addicted to onroad R/C cars:
When you looked to buy a house, you made sure there's a basement for all
your onroad R/C stuff and you didn't care about your wife's stuff.

HA HA Ive done it soo many times. I think it's funny to know im in my 1991 buick acting like im driving my R/C car.

When you have more R/C bodies laying in the living room than places to sit down.

When the back seat of your car is so full of parts, cars, and other rc stuff you can't see out the back window.

You know you are addicted to onroad R/C when you start carving the brand name of the car(s) you run into your skin with a butterknife!

Also, you know you are addicted when you see a team driver and your first instinct is to lift your shirt, hand them a marker, and have them write their first and last name on either teet! This applies to guys.

You know you are super addicted when you tuck in your cars in your bed at night and hug your favorite car while suckling on your thumb and having good dreams of winning races and trumping team drivers. Then later your dream ends with all team drivers hoisting you on their shoulders and throwing gummy bears at you!

I've never had this dream before, so don't ask!

Your addicted to on road RC when you use premount dish wheels as paper weight a work. Also when you take your car with you to the crapper instead of a book. +1 on the holding a line on the off and on ramp to the freeway

If you have ever used a body reamer to administer a piercing....

When having a PDF viewer and spreadsheet on your phone become a deciding factor as you want to have all those setup sheets and gear charts handy! (guilty)

If carry around the XXX Main setup book to read in your "down time"(guilty)

If you try to relate EVERYTHING to RC in some way.(guilty)
