Thats what it is all about.

I raced 1/10 and 1/4 scale in the late 80's early 90's. I got tired of my wife buying my kids Nikko's that break the first week, so for Christmas I bought an RC 10 for the youngest. I knew I could get parts and they were tuffer than that Walmart crap. She couldn't believe I was going to spend that kind of money on a toy car ( heck they were cheaper than I remember paying).
When I picked it up at the local hobby shop I was told about a group that was racing at the old skating rink, TT 01's stock form and $10.00 battery packs. So we went and watched...I gleemed like a kid at Christmas and my wife gave me that look...you know the one!
I had to have one.....promising the wife we wouldn't get it to it big as I already race full scale dirt modifieds.
Now a year and a half later I own aprox 10 cars of various forms and an indoor carpet track.

Honey, I promise we really aren't in it BIG!!
