Two Losi LST2's.
1 1/2 Ofna DM-1's.
Nitro buggy(RC8.2).
AE SC8.

So, five running nitro 8th scale RC's.

Want a truggy, but don't have the money, space, or time. One reason things accumulate is that in the last 2-3 years resale prices have become so stupidly low that I just choose to keep stuff. And am constantly struggling to be more disciplined to not buy new stuff - especially engines. Being a sucker for a deal is one of my main "issues"..

2 nitro buggys
Nitro truggy
SCTE
E Buggy
E truggy
SC10, Slash and blitz (well they belong to my 4 yr old)
B3 buggy
E Max (needs an esc)
T Rex 600 (futaba 14mz)

All are in great working condition and I run most of them. I find that unless it's a very large event 3 classes is my limit and even at large races 3 classes is pleanty. I have done 4 before but man that really keeps you running and you have to constantly pray to the nitro gods that nothing breaks.
