Im in my 6th year of college so I have lived that life, Rc's are the thing I come home to, like a nice dog or some shit, girls arelike a hobby to me...(resentement towards women comes from bad high school experiences)...I just was curious of what you guys do in these situations...now that Im thinking of it. Id really rather not introduce the 2...(due to possible contamination, of either)...grateful for all responses...

Haha, this is a great thread! But seriously, it shouldn't be a problem if YOU don't make it one. I follow a few rules of thumb and I shared them with some fellow racers when we all hit up the bar during a weekend race.

First- Know what your hobbies are. Mine are swimming, hockey, and rock climbing. RC should never come up at the bar.

Second- Put your all your equipment away except for one car! Having only one car visible will let anyone know that you have one and you can then fill them in on what it is you actually do in your spare time.

Third- When the girl sobers up in the morning and sees the car sitting there and asks why you have one you can control what she thinks of it. The key here is to use "gray" words. Something along the lines of: "I race occasionally." "It's kind of fun." or my favorite, "I haven't run that thing forever!" Of course FOREVER is "gray" in terms that forever is more than 5 days (but she doesn't know that).

Now that you've sealed the deal, and she hasn't run away when finding out you have an r/c car then you simply go about your business as usual.

So that's for the initial opening. For the rest, just don't let anyone know that it's what drives your life and it won't be a problem for anyone.

If my girlfriend decides to spend $400 on a silly brand-name designer purse... there is no reason I shouldn't be able to spend the same amount of money on RC.

'nuff said.

Generally speaking, girlfriends and wives have contempt for things that may take your attention away from them. It's partly in their nature to have some jealousy for other women and things which captivate their spouse's attention, but it is also taught to them by those silly Cosmo type magazines that preach to them they should all literally be treated like a princess. One of the criteria for the "keepers" are the ones that are not self-centered and allow you reasonable time for yourself. On the other hand, of course, you cannot be too selfish with your own time.

I can roll with that.

My wife rang me at work one night. "I'm bored!" she said. I told her to build the TT-01 in the cupboard.

Came home, car all built, ready to go. We went out and took it for a spin, she loves it.










No more guy time for me

Thats odd.....y would u let her build it, half the fun of rc is building the dam thing....i think when she called you telling you she was bored, she meant something else, sexually orientated...that the only time my gf would ever say i bored.

The only problem my wife has is the money I put into the hobby. (just getting back into it)

One of her sisters asked her once, how she could let me go race toy cars every weekend.

My wife's reply was: At least I know where he is at and he isn't in some bar getting trashed or being hit on by some tramp. Plus it gives me time to put the kids to bed and do my weekly candle light soak in the tub without him getting all excited and getting ideas and bugging the hell out of me.
