Gabriel is British. His theatrical background( see early Genesis) gave him a head start.

ZZTop was completely out of left field. They didn’t have to do much. Billy’s car and the girls were the stars.

Weíve gone way off topic.

The first season of Real World was unlike anything on tv. Nobody knew what or how it would go. After a few seasons, they started to try to pick cast that would create conflicts. Thatís when it went bad.

This topic was just an "Emotion Jabber" that was going around and around with the same points.

So, now back to a more important topic...
I thought it was crazy on how many people were applying to be on that show. they were getting 100's of thousands of applicants.

You'd be giving Tamiya too much credit in saying they are what is keeping AE from making another onroad car.

It’s Xray to blame. It’s almost impossible for anyone else to produce a new model every year.

It's not hard if you only change a couple of parts each release.

It seems to be enuff to convince people to buy each year.

It was great for me as almost all my touring cars are used.

Come to think of it, Traxxas is to blame. I'm sure there was a lawsuit somewhere in there. Aren't they the ones being blamed for all of these RC companies closing shop? Why not blame this on them. I'm starting to think Traxxas started the COVID crisis for people to become locked up and so bored that they will run out and buy Traxxas vehicles and all of their parts.

Oh they get plenty of blame. I could find a few here that see them as a downfall of the entire hobby.


You could blame the increase in number of companies that now have 6 day work weeks. Itís getting close to 40 percent of American that now work part of a weekend.

Blame everyone that like things to be available 24/7/365. If not maybe the 6 day work week would not be needed.


Blame Space Invaders. If video games hadnít been invented...... then they couldnít be blamed for kids not getting into RC

- I blame all those chefs who came up with different recipes to make food taste so good and giving me high blood pressure.
- I blame the mattress companies for making beds too comfortable where I don't want to get out of them.
- I blame Dr. Pepper for making a drink that I am now addicted to.
- I blame the OP of this topic for making me read and type all of these posts.
- I blame this hobby for depleting my bank account.

Traxxas. Great bashing toys. Sturdy, easy to work on, parts inexpensive and all over the place. Slash 2WD for Dirt Oval. Slash 4WD for bashing, TRX4 Sport for crawling. Love them all.

It is the drivers to blame who go with it to get anew model every year. Most of the drivers do not even need it.

It is job, that those drivers have, that is to blame. Their job pays them too much money so it allows them to buy a new car every year.
