I started racing off-road back in late 95' with a XX-t that I converted to a XX-T CR when the conversion came out. I sold the truck to get a XX Kinwald buggy. In the mean time my buddy that I met at the track got me into paved oval, dirt oval and on-road. (Man to be single again ) I had one short track and one velodrome track paved oval cars. A Losi LXT truck converted into a dirt oval truck with Factory works hopups on it. My frist on-road car was a TAO2 Nismo Skyline, that I put Tamiya and HPI hopups on (thats right HPI sold aftermarket parts for Tamiya cars). Then I bought a TAO3, HPI RS4 PRO, HPI PRO2, Almost bought a PRO3 but bought a TC3 instead. I've rebuilt my TC3 to keep up with the changes so it feels like I've owned three TC3s' over two years. I'm not complaining about the changes made to the TC3, in my opinon the running changes made the car better.

When Iwas in fifth grade my parnets bought me a tamiya grasshopper for christmas that I ran into the ground. The summer between 7th and 8th grade I had a paper route so I had the money to buy a 10L when they frist came out. I traded the 10L for some Super NES games when I was a freshman in highschool. I discovered Bodyboarding and hanging out at the beach checking out girls After highschool I joined the Coast Gaurd and got stationed in northen Michigan. One day I was walking through the local mall and saw a hobby shop. I walked in and an hour later walked out with a XX-T

My first TOURING car was an HPI Pro 3 in 2001, and I bought it to race with.

But the first time I raced an RC car was my Tamiya Super Sabre in 1988.
