When you buy a 1:18 because it's so small you take it anywhere and show it to everybody how much modifications you have done to it

this is me, kinda goes along with what Greg Sharpe was saying...

"if you go on vacation to disney, and you bring cloths in your luggage, and your carry-on is a Team Trinity Mini Hauler bag with your r/c stuff in it." lol

when shopping for a home you refuse to buy anything that does not have a 2 car garage for testing and a extra bedroom for a home pit space. (no lie)

you take a break from racing and visa calls asking if you are ok

you wonder how many items in your home you can make work with servos and radio equipment

your rc car is spotless but your 1:1 car has 6 years of dirt on it

you have real problems spending 400 bucks on new tires for you 1:1 car but have no problems ordering 400 bucks in rc stuff

the 80 dollar electric bill susprises you but 250 for new batts is not a problem

i could go on for days

You've bought a car that you really don't like a lot with cargo area and awesome gas mileage specifically for the parking lot racing and racing 100 miles away almost every weekend. ( I really did this. Passed up 2 different cars because there wouldn't be enough room for a pit table and an EZup tent. )

- Going down the Home Depot hardware department, wondering if they're finally stocking 3mm Ti or Aluminum machine screws..

- Everything in life is too expensive, except when it comes to RC Parts...

- Imagining the (ill)logistics of what it would be like if you had a 1:1 version of your RC Car, including your favourite mod motor, batteries, lexan plastic shell with bucket seats and a steering wheel instead of a servo...

- Cleanest (or Messiest, depending on who you are) part of the basement is your RC Workbench area.

- Buying stuff, getting it shipped to work so you can sneak them into the house.. "Is that ANOTHER car??", "No, dear, same one, just a different body on it!"

when you pass up pretty much any thing for RC racing... i would have to say the biggest one would be .:AHEM:. love makeing lol... however... i dont beleive i would ever pass that up... depending of couse on what car it is lol.

when your supposed to spend holidays with your family, instead you spend it alone in the shop wrenching on your stuff...

when your sitting at work... and you ponder off into a day dream of which class you are going to run this weekend...

when you take your lunch to work during the week so you can buy new tires and brushes for the weekend...

when you go to home depot and walk the place twice over looking for something cool to put in your pits...

and after your done with home depot you got to lowes

when you clean your RC cars every weekend... and your 1:1 car every 4 months...

when you put off the cell phone bill so you can buy a new motor...

when your wife is talking to you... and your only thinking about anti squat

when you refer to sex with set up terms... ^ LOL

You Know you're Addicted When.

you call your friends that are sponsored to see if they can send you free stuff.

you rather wrench on you car then play Video games on the weekend, when its Raining.

you order something you really dont need, but would look good in the Pits

you try to make you gear a compact as possible, but still bring more stuff to the track.

you only eat Junk food, from the nearby McDonalds,KFC,BurgerKing, but never touch it when your not at the track.

you rather by Rc Parts then new Clothes.
