anyway, just wanted a pic in here

This is what got me started with RC,
I joined the NATCAR autonomous robotics competition and our team won the national championship somehow.

It was a 1:10 pan car but I had purchased a TC3 just in case we had a chance to switch chassis. We didn't have time, so I had a TC3, a really good servo, a motor, and sticky tires.

So I bought a radio and a month later I'm spending about 25$ a week on this stuff.

Go to the Daly City one. They're stored at the front near the exit/cash registers. You can't miss it.

Yes. The one on the stand is my T1 Factory Kit and the other is my old Evo2 which I bring along in case I need parts.
