Hey guys I'm 14 too, and my parents dont buy me squat. It took me a good 6 months to save up for my car and batteries and stuff, and it took a lot of convincing for my parents to let me have it. Then again I have a few jobs and make about 100 a month in the summer, and winter I make more.

Otherwise,
4 months in the hobby
1 car
about $500 (roughly)
hopefully soon, still learning
