Default So I'm Freaking Pumped!!!!

I have been out of the hobby for about 2 years and have finally got some money to spend on this awesome pastime. I picked up a couple 3800 packs from Team Brood for super cheap and followed that up with a good old Novak Cyclone TC2. I had one about 3 years ago but soldered the wires backward and blew it up. (I was only 17 and really didn't take my time) I also just got my first really good servo, an Airtronics 94357, which is super fast and strong for my touring car. I am going to keep using my EX-1 Mars radio but might get a Spektrum for it in the summer. Finally I got a Duratrax ICE charger and an Integy 10amp power supply. I was going to get a Much More Cell Master but found out that it won't charge Lipo. I have learned from the beginning that you shouldn't skimp on equipment from the get go or it will come back to bite you in the butt. The only thing left is a new car. I have a TC3 that is pretty hopped up so I will be relatively competitive at the club level but I think its time for a change. Really looking forward to this summer racing season. Just thought I would fill everyone in.
