this will be a good point that this hobby will be a part of our heart and life perhaps....

A lot of people at work, think it is just a kids thing and don't understand. But for me - I say why quit?

VT11800NY, I think I know you from e-sportbike. It's been a few years since I went to that website, though.

I think RC cars are fun and dandy. They're a nice little hobby to do when I'm bored. But i've gone on racetracks with real cars, man times with motorcycles, and a few times with shifter karts. Those things are really fun.

RC cars are just toys and they're supposed to be fun. A lot of people just treat it too seriously and that's kind of lame. Toys are made for having fun.

Yea, I kinda lived there for a while... Met my Fiancee' there, made lots of friends... Made lots of enemies being a cop and seeing both sides of the fence when it comes to racing and stunting on the street.... Kinda sad to give up the bikes, but maybe someday I'll return... I took my R1 for a few laps around my block the otherday, I'm going to miss it, haven't ridden it in almost 2 years... Just can't take the weight and windblast with a helmet on my head...

Hey man they sell neck braces for kart driving, and maybe you can get a more docile bike like a VFR with huge screen to take care of the windblast problem?

Actually, I have a VFR, and a CB1... Yea, I like my toys... I have 6 out 7 disks in my neck herniated, 2 are pushing into my spinal cord... It's pretty much the weight that bothers me...

I don't think becoming National or World champ is within the majority of our goals... I'm just happy these days to make the A-main...
